Slim, timeless frames

If you’re an interior design whizz, you’ve probably heard of Crittall — they’ve certainly been around long enough. Established in 1849, they’ve been a notable presence in the world of design, specialising in beautiful steel windows and door frames for almost 200 years.

As with anything, trends ebb and flow, but it seems that steel-framed windows have had a major surge in recent years. Considering this, Crittall frames have been used in lots of innovative ways. Their frames have been reimagined for every kind of setting imaginable, as an effective tool for anything from increased light exposure, rear extensions, room dividers and even shower screens.

So, how can you tell if this elegant and on-trend design feature is right for you?

Will Crittall steel windows and doors suit my home?

The short answer is, most likely. Minimalist and highly versatile, Crittal steel windows and doors are suited to many types of properties. The grid-like windows and door frames work particularly well in larger, open-plan spaces which may benefit from having zoned areas to make an inviting and usable living space.

However, if you have a smaller property with lots of nooks and crannies, steel windows and doors can still be an effective solution and a great way to style awkward corners, ensuring plenty of light. Bespoke Crittall frames can be handcrafted and made to measure, ensuring the frames are perfectly suited to your home, reassuring you that whatever the style or practicalities — they will fit perfectly.

Show your true colours

Russell Ager, managing director at Crittall, says: “These days, you can colour-match almost everything in home décor, furnishings, appliances, even your window frames, inside and out.” This certainly applies to Crittall as there are plenty of colours you can choose from for your steel-framed windows and doors.

This includes vibrant shades of orange, red and green, and ultimately means that you can tailor the frames to your exact stylistic preferences. If you’re feeling uncertain about which direction to go in, no doubt your supplier will happily help you to colour match!

Think outside the box

Curves and rounded shapes are back so if you’re after something slightly different, consider the fact that you don’t have to opt for the ubiquitous rectangular shape in white or black. Perhaps you're aiming to make a big statement or hoping to maximise the view from your property? Or maybe you fancy having a sweeping panoramic style window to bring the outside in? It all depends on your preferences, but Crittall certainly has limitless bespoke design options to choose from.
