What are Georgian style windows?
The Georgian windows design is a remnant from one of the most revered periods in architectural history, spanning from 1730 to 1830, influencing much of the residential architecture at the time. The style is fairly classical.
Georgian style windows generally follow the pattern of “six over six”, meaning that six panes sit on top of another six in each window. Each pane is separated by a “Georgian bar”, or a metal bar. This was an extremely practical method of constructing windows hundreds of years ago, but nowadays Georgian windows contain either one or two panes of glass, on top of which are placed the ornamental bars.
You can also purchase double glazed Georgian bar windows that have a “spacing” bar between the glazing, producing a look that is much closer to the authentic thing and provides a traditional look for otherwise modern homes.
Traditionally, Georgian windows were made from wood, though nowadays uPVC Georgian windows are attractive and can look fairly authentic. This alternative is great for those who don’t want the hassle of maintaining wooden windows. Find more about uPVC windows’ benefits by reading our article here.
