12 August 2020 |Advice & Guidance
Due to its versatility and performance, uPVC is a popular choice of material for windows in the UK. uPVC can be built and shaped into a range of styles, including casement, tilt and turn, and even bespoke window designs. Another aspect that demonstrates the versatility of uPVC is the fact that windows built using the material can come in any colour you could think of: giving you the freedom of choice when it comes to designing your windows! With all the choice of colours for uPVC windows, how do you choose? For your ease, we have rounded up some of the top popular window colours!
1. Grey uPVC windows
Grey uPVC window frames can give a more modern finish to the exterior of your home compared to other neutral colours: you can choose from a range of RAL shades, that include Anthracite Grey, Iron Grey, and Light Grey. Here at SEH BAC we offer dual colour window frames which allows you to mix and match the colour of the interior and exterior of your windows. However, you can choose to match both.
Tip: A popular choice: the coloured foil that is applied to the uPVC can come in a wood grain finish. Design your grey uPVC windows with a wooden finish, inside and out, and continue the colour grey on your interior woodwork, such as your stairs and banister.
2. Cream uPVC windows
Suited to more cottage style and timeless homes, cream uPVC windows create a soft look. It makes a statement but still creates a classic finish to your home: perfect for homes in more traditional areas of Rochford and Brentwood.
