To give you a starting base, I have outlined below the most important considerations to make when choosing sash windows for your property.
Choose Windows that Compliment Your Home’s Existing Architectural Style
For many people, the thought of having sash windows installed is concerning because they don’t want to compromise their home’s existing architectural style. This is particularly common for homeowners of heritage homes, where renovations are a touchy subject.
However, with Sash Windows London it is possible to choose sash windows that compliment your home, without compromising on its existing architecture and style. If you want to seamlessly fit new windows into your home without changing the style or feel, call Sash Windows London today. Whether you have a modern home, a heritage home, or something in-between, we can work with you to find a solution that fits. With the right knowledge of your home’s history and architectural lineage, it is more likely you will complement your home in your choice of sash windows than detract from its appearance by choosing a window ill-suited to the style.
Which Sash Window Function is Important to You?

The Levels of Natural Light
When considering sash windows for your property, it’s important to keep in mind the level of natural light in your home. Natural light can significantly affect an interior space, making it seem larger, more open, comfortable and uplifting. Sash windows that maximise the amount of natural light coming into your home should be a priority as nobody likes living in a dark house, surely!?
Choosing Energy Efficient Sash Windows
When choosing your sash windows, it is important to purchase the most energy efficient sash windows you can afford. Energy efficient windows will save you significant money on your energy bills and helping you do your bit to save the environment.
Choosing the Right Window Furniture
When it comes to choosing the right sash windows for your property, it’s not just the window itself you need to think about, it’s also the window furniture!

Do I Need Double or Triple Glazing?
While the choice between installing double or triple glazing is completely yours, double glazing is definitely something we would strongly recommend as a minimum as it has numerous benefits. However, triple glazing is also popular for many homeowners – particularly those who live in highly populated areas that are noisy.
It is a common misconception that timber framed sash windows are all single glazed. While this may be true for some heritage buildings, all the timber sash windows we sell are double glazed to offer a full range of benefits for our customers to enjoy.
