Our video series ‘From dream to reality’ showcases our customers home and discusses the differences that new windows & doors have made to their homes.
When we first met Kerry and John, the original timber windows of their mid-2000s detached house in Dalgety Bay were vulnerable to the elements and had a dark, stained finish on the inside.
Our first advice was to keep the rosewood colour on the outside to maintain the appearance of their home. But inside, there’s a big difference.
By changing the interior finish to brilliant white, the whole space has been lifted to something lighter, brighter and very modern.
At the front of the house, there is a lovely bay window. The original had one very large opener, we redesigned the new uPVC window with small openers at the top for better ventilation.
Engineered timber sills were fitted throughout the house, hand painted in white by our professional decorators. Meanwhile, at the back, the old patio doors only half opened. We replaced these with Lorimer French doors, which both open – connecting the inside and outside together.
It really has made all the difference.
The living room bay window was restyled to include two top openers which provides multiple options for ventilation.
The bright white uPVC window frames help bring in the natural light and makes the area look much bigger.
This period property in Dunfermline is full of character and fantastic original features. We installed new double glazed, sliding sash windows to help restore its period charm from the outside in.
