Slim Box Sash Windows and French doors
Mr and Mrs Brogden had one aim for their home,
“we wanted to get it back to how it should be.”
Returning to timber
The house has origins back to 1812, with additions made during the Victorian era, and although originally would have started life with sash windows, in more recent times it had been given unsuitable uPVC tilt and turn windows.
The Brogden’s chose slim box sash windows and French doors, all in Off-White with 18mm astragal bars. The sash windows have Oil Rubbed Bronze ironmongery and the French doors have Bronze finished handles from Samuel Heath.
“We knew it would make be an improvement but were actually surprised by quite how much of a difference it has made to the look and feel of our house.”
Drawn to the light
“The new French doors are wonderful, they’ve made so much difference – the old doors were wood but they had many bars that obstructed the view; now we have a much better outlook and the room feels much lighter too.”
Noise levels reduced
Living on a fairly busy road, Mr & Mrs Brogden were often disturbed by noise,
“lots of heavy vehicles pass by here and used to cause the old windows to rattle; it’s surprising how much difference the windows have made, particularly in our bedroom.”
