Choosing the right aluminium windows for your home depends on a few factors. Obviously, some of the more obvious factors such as building size, whether or not you are replacing windows or adding new windows and the design of the building itself will need to be considered. There are a few other things that you will need to take into account down deciding on the best type of aluminium windows for your home.

Choosing the Best Aluminium Windows for Your Needs

To ensure that your windows meet your specific needs, here are some of the most important things to keep in mind when planning and selecting aluminium windows:


Style is a big factor for every home. There are many different window styles to choose from – casement, tilt and turn, side hung, top hung, sliding horizontal, arched, and various others. If your home has a classic look, with a structure and design that gears towards traditional, modern windows will look out of place. If your home is contemporary in design, you will want windows that suit this style. Window planning should be done in accordance with door and other structure planning. You will want your windows to suit your balcony, doors, enclosures, and any other structures within your home. Choosing windows that are very different to your doors can end up ruining the flow of your home. You’ll also need to take finishing and colours into consideration. Essentially, you want your windows to work with your home exterior in a way that enhances the building.


Functionality is another thing to consider. Each window style has its own function. Style comes into play here, of course. But functionality is also important. You may find that tilt and turn windows are well-suited to specific areas within your home. You may find that floor-to-ceiling windows only work in some areas, while small windows are better suited to other areas. Style should always be considered in conjunction with function to get the full benefit of your windows. You should also consider where the windows will be located. Windows positioned next to sliding or French doors that open out onto patios or balconies may be different to those in passages or bathrooms, for example. Ventilation plays a vital role in window planning. If your windows cannot be used properly, you will end up wasting a lot of money for nothing. This is why it is always a good idea to speak to a window planning expert such as ParaGone.


Size plays an equally important role in the planning process. In larger rooms and homes, larger windows make sense. In smaller spaces, you want to find a balance between optimising light and ending up with overly large windows that alter the appearance of your home. Once again, professional window planning can help you get the ideal size for your space. You will want to make use of available light, with window styles that achieve this in a way that works for the size of your home.
