Marvin Architectural replacement sash windows restore beauty into traditional style

Examples of Marvin Architectural’s attention to detail were apparent in a project to replace aged wood sliding sash windows at a cottage style property in Oxford.

Cottage style property

The owners of the brick and stone property got in touch with Marvin Architectural after seeing previous replacement timber sash window projects on the website and examining windows in the company’s London showroom.

With the vast design versatility at their disposal, the clients had finalised their timber sash window requirements and opted for Marvin’s Wood Sliding Sash Window for the project.

The time had come to choose the colours, a very important detail as the exterior colour should match the aesthetic of the building. The client specified Signal White (RAL 9010) for the interior and Cream (RAL 9001) for the exterior, creating a beautiful composition with the house’s facade.

A common problem with smaller sized sash windows is the bulky appearance that can arise from thicker window profiles. Marvin’s Timber Sash Windows are created with a slim design in mind in order to maximise sightlines outside and light flow inside. Some of the key slim profile features of Marvin’s replacement timber sash windows include: narrow meeting rails; slim jambs & frames; 16mm glazing bars.

Interior architraving

Marvin Architectural is committed to making sure that all windows look visually stunning not just from the outside, but from the interior too. During this project, Marvin restored the architrave around the window and painted it with the exact matching colour of the window. The interior window cill was also painted with matching colours. This additional service offered by Marvin provided the client with a beautiful design feature in each of their interior rooms.
