Why Have Sash Windows Maintained Their Popularity For So Long?

Sash windows are one of the most popular window styles and have been around for generations. To everyone at Visual, it’s certainly no surprise why.

Sash Windows

Sash windows began gaining popularity in England during the Georgian period (1714 to 1837) and Victorian period (1837 to 1901) and they are still just as popular today, centuries later.

Commonly found in period cottages and traditional buildings, sliding sash windows bring charm and character to homes throughout the UK.

They are beautifully traditional in style, low-maintenance and will introduce a look of elegance to your property.

The detailing and high level craftsmanship is second to none.

But it’s not all about their looks. Visual’s Sash windows perform exceptionally well too.

While they offer a traditional aesthetic, today’s sash windows have many modern benefits that make them perfect for 21st Century homeowners.

Our sash windows are durable, weatherproof and do not date. In addition, they offer a high level of security.

We have a number of different colour finishes to suit all tastes so you can customise your sash windows to complement your home and current colour scheme.

While white and cream are timeless finishes, many homeowners are now choosing to have something a little different. You can choose an on-trend shade, such as green or grey to add more personality to your home.

Don’t spoil the character of your heritage property with contemporary style windows. Our sash window range will embrace the authentic character of your home, which is extremely important.
