Steel frame windows and doors, often also called “Crittall windows” or “steel look” windows and doors are the most impactful, elegant, and stunning single addition you can make to your home.
There is a wide variety of designs available and Green Home Glazing will help you choose the style that suits the character of your home.
Steel French doors will add a traditional, yet contemporary look to your home and they are extremely popular due to people’s love of heritage designs and all things industrial. “This style of French door works beautifully in traditional as well as modern homes, flanked by a host of coordinating window panels.” Homes & Gardens magazine.
Sarah Warwick from Real Home magazine says:
“Metal windows and doors offer a huge range of opportunities for updating the style of your property. From the classic Crittall style populalised in the 1930s to bolder, industrial design often used in terraced home extensions, this type of glazing is right on trend.
Highly sought after, metal windows and doors can either replace original designs, or be used to smarted up a property that had plastic or old timber windows.
Metal-framed glazing is an elegant option that suits properties of different styles and will look great for years to come. Both metal-framed doors and windows can complement homes with brick exteriors as well as modern grey or white rendered walls.
If your house currently has dated uPVC doors and windows, metal can be a much slimmer and more attractive alternative. Fitting metal in place of wood, on the other hand, can allow you to avoid the maintenance requirements of timber.
Panel style metal-framed doors won’t offer the uninterrupted views that bi-fold or sliding doors do. However, they will frame views to the exterior in an appealing way. The metal framing isn’t bulky, so they’ll still let in plenty of light and each panel can reveal a new perspective. You might also like the idea of the doors themselves being a feature rather than a barely-there barrier, and they can complement other materials used in an interior scheme.
And the style’s not just appropriate for doors: panelled metal windows can bring an industrial edge to your home, or create period style, depending on the dimensions of each of the glazed elements.”
