The window and door industry has certainly gone through some changes over the years. Thankfully, the mundane ‘white uPVC’ look that dominated the 80’s, 90’s and even early 2000’s is finally coming to an end…
Window and door manufacturers in the UK have had to up their game, and thankfully inspiration from Europe and beyond has now brought in some exciting new trends.
The massive surge in home extensions over the past few years has also breathed new life into our white plastic industry, with demanding architects demanding products that fit stylistically with their vivid imaginations. Couple that with prestigious extensions and builds, funded by affluent homeowners, and we now have exotic products such as corner sliding doors, large curtain walled frames and pivot entrance doors becoming the norm.
Put simply, this is the most exciting time we can remember for the fenestration industry. Homeowners now have an abundance of choices for either renovations or extensions/self-builds, with previously unattainable products now affordable.
