Windows have a big impact on the look of your home. Whether you are renovating your existing property or self building a new home, the windows form a huge part of the property’s finished character so it’s important that you choose the right style.

Window aesthetics are for many people the biggest steer to choosing the frames for your home, but windows need to be functional too and they need to deliver much more than simple good looks. For many properties aluminium windows are the answer. But knowing you would like aluminium windows is just the start, because not all aluminium windows are the same.

In this blog we will discuss the various options you need to consider to make the best choice for your home or property. But whichever style of aluminium window you choose, you’ll benefit from a wealth of colour choices for the frames so your windows can blend in or stand out.
Let’s consider the practicalities. When you choose aluminium windows from a reputable supplier such as Capital Windows, you can be reassured they will meet or exceed Building Regulations requirements for thermal efficiency and security. But it’s important to know, for example, that some windows are better suited to being fitted in older properties than others. Your window supplier will be able to advise you on these aspects so you can make the right choice.
So, what do you need to think about when it comes to choosing the right aluminium windows for your home?

Aluminium windows for contemporary homes

Contemporary homes often emphasise big expanses of glass and sleek, crisp detailing. It means aluminium windows are an excellent choice for these property styles. The strength of aluminium means aluminium windows can be extremely large in size and the frames are slim and sleek, so enhance the clean lines of the rest of the property.

Aluminium windows for heritage homes

Aluminium windows are equally at home in heritage homes. Often, the original windows would have been metal, so aluminium windows are the logical successor and can recreate heritage aesthetics.
The slim frames are also useful when trying to maximise natural light in a home that may have smaller windows than a modern home.

It is perfect for taking the clean aesthetics of aluminium windows to the next level.
You’ll also benefit from exceptionally slim frames that place all the emphasis on the glazed element delivering natural light into your home.
Our Sapa Crown Casement and Sapa Dual Frame aluminium windows are a strong choice for both modern and older homes. And our AluK 58BW aluminium windows have some of the slimmest frames on the market. They are an excellent choice for modern and heritage homes thanks to their classic timeless appeal.
