Bring festive cheer to your windows

Lined windows

Window decorations can really make your home go from fairly festive to a Winter wonderland at Christmas.

The options are endless and you can use any type of decorative material to bring Christmas to life in your window.fairylights decoration

You have the choice of decorating either inside or outside and you can adorn either with fairy lights to add a delightful twinkle to the exterior. Line your window frame with the lights to give it a bordered glow, or wrap them through some tinsel or pine to enhance the decoration even further.

If you don’t want to use lights then you can still encase your window with a garland, tinsel or ribbon instead. It’s a fantastic way to complement your internal Christmas decorations.

Of course you could also create a stunning window scene by using snow spray. It adds interest, detail and something different and unique to your window. Snow spray when used well creates a comforting and warm atmosphere when you’re inside looking out.

If you want to decorate your window area but would rather go down a simpler route, place ornaments on the window ledge. This can be anything you want, from a nativity scene to cartoon reindeers. You might want to include giant baubles or a mini tree, go for whatever suits your personality.

Finally, window stickers are an easy way to liven up your window panes. Snowflakes are always a winner here, you can get a variety of shapes and sizes to mix and match and to fill your window with as many as you want.

Whatever you choose to do we’d love to see it. Share your Christmassy windows with us on Facebook or Twitter.

We’re off to an excellent start!

We have been trading as Wooden Windows now for a few months and we’re pleased to say we have gone from strength to strength.

It was a great decision for our company to rebrand from TA Windows to Wooden Windows as we wanted to create a more identifiable brand, which we feel we’ve done.

Every month our figures are better than the last and we’re continuing to grow. We found when people were talking about what windows they wanted they would say ‘we want wooden windows’ or sometimes Upvc. So it made sense, as a manufacturer of wooden windows to create an identity which was easily recognisable and says what it does on the tin, essentially.

It’s fantastic to see that we made the right decision through increased sales and continuous happy customers. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and a good quality product and our new name has helped to encompass our brand and ethos.

We complemented our rebrand with the works. A new logo, website and colour scheme. Everyone in the company loves the rebrand and the logo is great. It’s very clear what we do for both our trade customers and the general public.

Do let us know your thoughts on our rebrand. Find us on Facebook or Twitter or to enquire about a new window visit our website.

Wood vs Plastic – there’s no comparison really

We know our name speaks for itself, but we believe wooden windows far exceed uPVC for many reasons.

If you are developing a property, whether that be a new or old building, choosing a timber based frame will be beneficial both aesthetically and practically. Timber performs more effectively than uPVC as it improves the thermal efficiency of a home and it is a naturally insulating material. Not only that but it is sustainable and durable and can last for hundreds of years as long as it is looked after. 

Unlike uPVC which cannot be simply repaired, wooden frames can easily be brought back to life if they weather or wear. They can be painted or stained to update them, keep them current and increase longevity. Not only that, but wood suits all styles of building from listed or period properties to modern and contemporary builds.  

If you are renovating a period property, you want to keep the charm and sophistication when updating it. By choosing a wooden window over uPVC you can ensure the authenticity remains intact. Sash windows are typically Victorian and still look great on any older building. They encapsulate the character of the house and by replacing the windows like for like but with a modernised version you are keeping the vintage persona without the worry of a draft or rot. As most windows come double glazed as standard, the new windows can ensure energy efficiency in a traditional setting.  

Our stunning sliding sash windows come in a range of colours, a full draught exclusion system, lockable catches, and with chrome / satin / or gold finishings while the spiral balances give ultimate performance and adjustment. 

Of course if you are renovating a listed building you have to abide by strict rules and regulations to ensure the nature and character of the property is preserved. Often the windows are flush and again, a wooden window is generally the answer to this. 

By investing in high quality wooden windows, the property would still look authentic and would ensure the renovation is long lasting due to the longevity which is achievable with timber. The flush casement windows we offer have a multipoint locking system which would be beneficial to a listed property as well as a variety of colour options, so they can fit right into the nature of the building. 

If you are renovating a more modern property Stormproof Wooden Windows are a fantastic option. With a rebated casement opening which lips over the outer face of the window frame, these are the ultimate window for providing excellent draught exclusion. Not only do they look stylish and sophisticated but they offer a practical solution to a new window installation. A Stormproof window is suitable for most buildings as again, they are aesthetically pleasing and can be modified to suit the style of any house.
