Design Considerations
March 26, 2018 admin

Nothing is more important when designing your home than the window & door selection. The 3 most important ‘S’ factors to consider are: Sustainability (Energy Efficiency), Style and Security. The whole character and thermal performance of your home will be decided by the choices you make at the design phase.

There are many things to consider when choosing your windows & doors…

Windows

Style

What style are you trying to achieve? Modern or contemporary?

Ventilation

Do you want to maximise airflow or simply frame a view?

Position

What style is optimal for the position of the window? Let our specialised design team help you design the best windows and doors to meet your lifestyle requirements.

Flyscreens

Do you prefer them on the inside or the outside? Fixed, sliding or retractable?
TIMBER (ONLY) Final Finishing products – Cutek Oil or Oil based paint or a combination? e.g Paint on the outside and oil on the inside. UPVC windows & doors require NO final finishing.

Blinds and Shutters

Do you want to have blinds and shutters inside the window frame or have them sitting on the architrave? What thickness are your walls? Hardware – What colour? Does it need to match existing or door hardware?

Doors

Style

What style are you trying to achieve? Modern or contemporary? We will make any style of door you like. We can show examples of different styles in the photo gallery or you can bring in your own design

Position

What style is optimal for the position of the Door? e.g decks – would sliding doors be a better option than French or hinged doors if outdoor furniture is nearby? Do you want your doors to open to 90 degrees or 180 degrees?

Flyscreen Doors

Or do you want flyscreen doors as well. French – will the flyscreens open out and the doors inwards or vice-versa. Have you got internal furniture nearby – would retractable be a better option?

Installation

Do you need us to arrange installation of your new windows and doors?
