Why stick with white? Casement windows in uPVC can be found in a wide variety of colours to suit your property. Wood colours, such as Oak, Mahogany or many plain colours. Also a selection of wood-grain colours.
Choosing which casement window opens
Deciding which window casement opens and which direction it opens is important in 2 ways.
- Price impact
- Function & “usability”
Firstly, price impact. Giving a glazed section the ability to open means more detailed work at the manufacture stage and can therefore potentially increase the cost of the whole unit.
It’s common practice for a lot of installers / manufacturers to add a charge for each panel that can open, so check for this extra charge.
Secondly, function: You can have side or top hinged opening casements. The location of the window can influence which section you want to open.
For example, in a lounge room, you may only need a small top hinged opener at the top of the frames. In a kitchen you may want a larger side opening section, plus a top opening section.
The location of the opener in the frame can also make a difference. If we take the kitchen window again as an example, would it be more convenient to have the opening window section on the left hand side or the right hand side?
- Take some time to consider what works best for each of your rooms.
