The Timber Windows range suitable for new homes

When carrying out a revamp on our homes, we can often draw inspiration from its history, the neighbours or the surroundings, but what if you live on a relatively new, purpose built estate like Mr and Mrs Forrest’s home in Brentwood, Essex?

Slim Hidden Spring sash windows in ‘Off-White’ with 18mm astragal glazing bars and standard sash horns as well as a Kingston entrance door finished in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Dix Blue’

“Our house was built in the late 1990s, and most houses had ‘mock-sash windows’ from new – lots of neighbours have changed the originals now so we looked around the estate for ideas but didn’t see anything we liked, as lots have opted for uPVC which we feel ruins the look of the house”

Mr Forrest explains.

Mr and Mrs Forrest instead saw a similar style of house in the Timber Windows brochure,

“we thought the front door colour really suited the light brickwork, so we opted for the same, and the sash windows gave a nice finish against a like colour and type of property.”

Kingston entrance door finished in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Dix Blue’ with an ‘Off-White’ frame, featuring Samuel Heath Polished Chrome Doctor’s knocker, Medium sized letter plate plus a spy hole with Satinovo patterned glass.

New windows that achieve the originally desired look for the house

With regards the old windows, Mr Forrest says,

“We noticed they were draughty and didn’t close very well – they probably could have been repaired but it felt like a lost cause, throwing money after bad.”

The new front door is finished in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Dix Blue’ set in an ‘Off-White’ frame, and accompanied by Chrome ironmongery. The sash windows have a classic ‘Off-White’ finish with elegant 18mm astragal glazing bars.

“The bars and the overall appearance are much finer and more refined than what we had before.”

“It has made a great deal of difference to the look of the house, and was probably the look that the developers were originally aiming for but didn’t quite make the cut with the mock sashes – we’re really very happy with them”

Mr Forrest says in summary.
