Lighter, brighter & a clean contemporary look
Mr & Mrs Shaw live in a relatively modern house in West Yorkshire; one of three properties built in the early 2000s on the site of a former manor house.
Mrs Shaw comments that, despite the houses being built to a high specification, it appeared that the developers had scrimped on the windows and doors, as although they were timber, they weren’t of a good quality, “the windows let the house down; they had poor quality hardware, were draughty and after a relatively short life, were looking old and tired. For quite a modern property, they were also an odd style with very little glazing area.”
“Once we visited Timber Windows at Harewood, we decided that we’d found the products we wanted but as we planned to undertake some building work, we got this underway and eventually returned a couple of years later to arrange the doors and windows.”
Opting for windows and doors, including Bi-folding doors from our Contemporary range, Mrs Shaw says “we wanted modern without the harshness; the colour and timber help achieve this look.”
The family chose a selection of Contemporary flush casement windows, French doors, a matching pair of Bi-Fold doors and single entrance doors. All the items are beautifully crafted in Engineered European Redwood, and finished in ‘Off-White’. The ‘Dowr’ design front door is dual coloured; ‘Warwick Stone’ on the outside and ‘Off-White’ on the inside. The windows and doors are complemented by brushed metal handles and fittings to complete the modern appearance.
“Oliver at the showroom gave us a great deal of advice when it came to getting the designs and styles right; he was very proactive and helpful. The installation was great too; everyone we came into contact with was very attentive.”
We’re very happy indeed – the front door is my personal favourite of all; our neighbours and visitors always comment on it.”
“The team that carried out our installation did so very well, and were quick and efficient, especially considering the scale and quantity involved in our project”
