What Is All The Fuss About Flush Casement Windows

If you are looking to replace the windows in your home, you are likely to find yourself overwhelmed with the different types and styles of window that you could choose from – not to mention the wide variety of materials available, etc.

One of the most versatile styles of window – in any material – is the flush casement window. Whether you have a more traditional home and are looking for something in keeping with the style, these windows are often chosen for conservation area homes, or you have a modern, new-build then this is a great choice – just change up the finish.

What is a flush casement window?

Casement windows have long been the most prominent style of window in the UK, with the window opening outwards on a hinge either hung at the top or on one of the sides. Flush casement windows sit in the frame without any prominence – hence the term flush.

With advances in window technology, the flush casement window now provides as much weather protection as the lipped, or stormproof casement window.

How can I make this traditional-style work in my modern home?

Timber flush casement windows can work in any style of home, meaning you get the aesthetic look that works for you as well as the numerous benefits of hardwood or timber.

In a modern home, you might look to change up the colour of the paintwork on your new windows – a lighter grey colour would for example mimic the look of some uPVC windows whilst retaining the elegance and sophistication of timber.

My home is listed/conservation control – can I have flush casement windows?

Listed buildings or those under conservation control have stricter guidelines to satisfy, but you can still benefit from all the great features of a casement window. We can sympathetically design and build a slim profile version of the casement window specifically to meet these guidelines and would be happy to talk to you about these.
