    I must confess Ocean that these are a style I've not previously taken much notice of but I think I like them. Beats PVC anyway and as long as they're achieving the required energy efficiency rating levels I say "yeah why not...?". I'm now looking forward to possibly working with, near or around at some point.

    Great to hear! I think they can look great too (depending on whether the original space has some interesting period features or interesting decor). In a completely modern build, I'm not such a fan - but in the room above, I love!

    I absolutely love them but too expensive for me at the mo as doing a lot of other work. They would literally transform our house. Some day..

    They look great but are thermally less efficient the other frame materials.

    I loved them but didn't know the name. What type of dressing suit them please?

    Hi Nik Gallacher

    I would like to invite you to share me your project. I am working on a steel style window that is very reasonable and therefore would like to see if I can help you. We design and fabricate it all ourselves.

    Please email me asltd16@outlook.com. Website being launched shortly.

    i hope I can assist.

    Hi Polly, to dress a crittall-style window, wave curtains on a ceiling fixed pole are great. There is a wide selection of colours for wave curtain poles so you would easily find one to blend in with the window frame colour. With an unlined medium weight linen fabric you will achieve a relaxed yet smart look to complement the industrial style of the window. The beauty of a semi sheer fabric is that it will not obstruct the view of the frame. The key here is to get the balance right so the window dressing doesn't overpower the crittall-style window which should remain the focal point of interest.

    Sounds perfect thank you. It would be a special feature with or without.

    Because I have a listed property I have had to replace like with like and the modern ones are impressive. The company I bought them from shall be nameless as a total nightmare

    Not a fan of crittall windows, I might change my mind if they kept some heat in!

    Polly I think Roman Blinds look best if the window is not too wide. If they are quite short I would probably fit the blind outside the recess and put a pelmet to hide the headrail.

    My windows are double glazed and certainly not draughty as the old ones were. English Heritage can be very difficult when it comes to changing windows if the building is listed.
