What Is The Perfect Window And Door Style For My Property?

It isn’t easy replacing existing windows and doors as they’re such a fundamental feature of any house. They massively contribute towards its overall styling and personality and the last thing you want is for any replacement windows and doors you have fitted to impair the aesthetics of where you live.

Every possible window and door solution available from a window and door specialist like Hazlemere and the various compatible colours and materials offered should be assessed before a final decision is made.

If you’re unsure which window and door upgrades to choose, our proven window and door expertise may help you make the right decision.

Casement Windows

The casement window has existed for many centuries and is frequently seen in many upper level rooms, opening outwardly as it is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side.

This long-standing popularity can be put down to its supreme functionality and lasting durability, window qualities that any home needs, so it’s a window design for residences of all ages.

Bay and Bow Windows

Bay and bow windows are often integrated together as there is a similarity between them in terms of how they protrude outwards in such a glamorous style and generate space internally.

A bay window consists of three windows; one fixed window flanked by two separate windows, while a bow window consists of four to six windows that form an outward arc shape.

Sliding Sash Windows

As the name suggests, these sash windows open via a sliding mechanism, a window design that has been present in UK homes for years.

Originally crafted from timber, the opening of a sliding sash window provides you with fantastic external views and it’s perfect if you’re after a window that gives your home a classic, traditional effect.

French Doors

Add some French flair to your home with a beautiful pair of French doors. Hinged at the side, their double opening makes for a sizeable gap.

This very wide opening is ideal if you love to host garden parties or the odd barbecue on the patio as then your invited guests can easily switch between enjoying the inside and outside of your home.

Patio Doors

Another method of eliminating the current boundary between your home and garden is to install patio doors, a well-known space-saving solution.

You get the slenderest frames you can imagine in a patio door, much like a bi-folding door, and huge glazed panes, so even when they’re closed, you get a superbly uninterrupted view of the outdoors and lots of light travelling in.

We have several other window and door possibilities available at Hazlemere and you can come see them all at one of our showrooms.



Our showrooms are our shop windows and we have invested heavily to create extensive displays that best showcase our large range of windows, doors and living spaces. You will receive a warm welcome, plus a proper coffee, and the choice to browse at your leisure without interruption.
