If you’re looking for an ideal way to subtly increase the space available in your home without applying for planning permission, the simple addition of a porch and bay windows achieves just that! Albion Windows recently had the pleasure of installing said products within a local Croydon home, instantly making the space feel brighter and more natural.
A hassle-free way to increase space and light
It can often be maddening for families to try and secure planning permission for an extension during the midst of a home improvement project, that’s why one household in Croydon saw the benefit in investing in a pair of high quality uPVC bay windows.
Protruding from the exterior of the home in an outwards expanding shape, bay windows help to increase the space of a room by anything up to 3ft. This creates an area that can be utilised however homeowners wish, ranging from a handy storage zone to somewhere in which to curl up with a book on a sunny afternoon.
Being made up of various casement windows all lined up against one another, light is more easily entered into the home from a 180° angle. They will also be more efficient at dampening external sounds from all around, reducing the noise of those busy South London roads.
Unequal sight lines for a larger glass area and more natural light
One significant issue for many homeowners is sight lines. When manufacturing replacement windows, it is quite normal for there to be smaller areas of glass wherever there are openings or sashes fitted. All of our uPVC frames are fixed making the glass area larger this creates unequal sight lines and therefore appear less bulky. Both the windows and porch look sleeker as a result.
All of our porches succeed in extending the front of any home, improving its aesthetic charm and values as well as making it more secure and efficient at retaining heat. What’s more the door incorporated into the porch is manufactured using the same high quality uPVC as both the windows and porch, meaning it will benefit from the same effective double glazing.
