What window frame colours are available?
At CTG, we offer three frame colour options as standard. There’s the ever-dependable white, but we also offer two realistic wood-grain finishes for those who like a more rustic touch at a reasonable price. Last century, faux-wood windows might have looked cheap and been prone to peeling or discoloration, but modern wood grain finishes are seriously convincing. You can check out our catalogue or visit our showroom for some examples.
Moving slightly up in price, we’re pleased to offer eleven separate wood-pattern colours in our premium range. Woodgrain white, for instance, completely convincingly mimics the traditional painted-wood appearance of sash windows. What’s more, they won’t need anywhere near as much annual TLC to keep them in tip-top shape. In addition, we stock cream, rustic cherry, irish oak, “anteak”, Chartwell green, grey, green, black/brown, blue and red. Each of these can look dashing on any property. Why not take a closer look?
When it comes to aluminium windows, it’s a slightly different matter. We offer a great many colour finishes for these as well as a natural, goes-with-anything grey. As they are less frequently installed, it’s best to speak to our team about your colour options. As we manufacture all of our windows to order, we’ll almost certainly be able to come up with something you’ll love.
Window frames in conservation areas
Fitting new windows in conservation areas can be tricky. There are a whole heap of rules and regulations to take into consideration. As a rule of thumb, any external changes to the property should match as closely as possible with the original features or theme. This means replacing white painted-wood sash windows with bright red casement windows might not be a good idea, for instance.
However, we have experience working in these areas and can offer helpful advice to keep you within regulation. Whatever you need, our bespoke-designed and well-installed windows will keep your planning hassle to a minimum.
The best window frame colours for your property
We prefer to leave the final say on colour to our customers.
With that said, we find three different approaches tend to work best. First, there’s good old white — a blank canvas and the go-to for the majority of our customers. White is traditional, it can look sleek and modern, and it sets off the other more eye-catching features of your house from a kerbside view. Also, it may simply be an excellent fit for your home. In properties with lighter-coloured brickwork or facades such as those built from Bath stone, white is the obvious choice.
This brings us to the second approach: matching. In a house with deep red tones in the brickwork or paint, for example, red-frame windows can look seriously smart. Frames don’t only have to match your home’s looks, however. If you’re ecologically minded or have a more earthy, outdoorsy personality, you might gravitate towards wood-grain finishes.
Finally, an increasingly popular design choice are colours that boldly contrasts with the rest of your house. Here, dark tones like grey and black/brown work best to set your home apart from the rest.
We’ve found each customer’s home has a personality all of its own. If you’re unsure about the colour of the frames you’d like, it’s best to contact us for a chat. We’re also happy to organise a home visit, where you can see for yourself detailed pictures or even material samples to help you make a decision.
