What do Georgian windows look like?
Georgian windows are a classic style of window that can be seen all over Britain. Georgian windows are characterised by having four (or more) divided segments with glazing bars and are an elegant way of adding personality to your windows, without recourse to textured or coloured glass.
Here at CTG, we’re passionate about giving customers freedom regarding how they wish the glass to look. You have the choice of installing external glazing bars, or you can choose to install them inside the two panels of glass, giving a smooth finish and making it easier to keep the window clean. Get in touch with us to find out more about Georgian windows at Britannia today.
Is decorated glass harder to clean?
This comes down to the kind of decorated glass you opt for. Should you choose a grid design that encompasses raised glazing panels, it’s worth remembering dust does easily collect on them and will need to be wiped down regularly. A more practical option that requires less cleaning maintenance is to have panel separators installed between the two glass panels. This gives the aesthetic of divided panels but makes it easy to clean.
Coloured and bevelled glass warrants the same care as other types of glass, which means a spray down using a bit of window cleaner and then a wipe using a cloth.
What is bevelled glass?
A traditional means of adding decorative aspects to your windows, bevelled glass is a pane of glass that’s got cut edges at particular angles that sit on the edge of the pane. The cut edge can be polished or remain textured; it ensures natural light can enter your home from multiple angles and can refract the light, giving a beautiful look of the rainbow as the colours separate into each individual colour.
A commonly-chosen option for front doors, bevelled glass windows are decorative but don’t compromise the amount of light coming in from outside. For a more intricate design, choose bevelled glass in coordination with other decorative glass choices that we offer here at Britannia.
What grid designs are available?
As all our windows are manufactured by us, we can offer a huge array of grid styles; find a door, window or conservatory that best suits your tastes, whether it’s a classic or diamond grid or an intricate multi-shape grid. Our experts can help you choose if you want to embellish your grid design with textured or coloured glass; whatever you go for, there’s no compromise on quality or security.
Contact us if you’re looking to bring another level of beauty to your home.
Can I design my own decorative glass?
Our windows are manufactured in a state-of-the-art factory near Bristol, which means we can meet your precise specifications. Perhaps you have a particular design in mind for your front door; if so, contact us to speak to one of our expert team. Our brochure also contains various types of textured and coloured glass you can choose from to reflect your personality and style.
Where should I install decorative glass?
Where the decorative glass sits depends on what purpose you’d like it to fulfil. To diminish visibility into your home from the exterior, coloured or textured glass for a front door or bathroom is effective. Design a piece from scratch that will bring colour and style and personality to your home.
A versatile choice, decorative glass can be used in a myriad of ways, upgrading your property in terms of practicality and of course, aesthetic. Our team are on hand to help you decide what meets your preferences.
