How do you match window joinery to the façade?

blog | 08.02.2024

The façade of a building plays a key role when looking at a house for the first time. Therefore, properly matching window joinery to the façade is an incredibly important step in the design process. In this article, we will discuss which factors to consider when looking at the different joinery elements: windows, doors, roller shutters and external Venetian blinds.

Windows - harmony of form and function

A fundamental aspect of the selection of windows for a façade is their harmonious integration into the overall character of the building. Contemporary architectural trends usually involve a lot of glass, which maximises the use of natural light while adding a modern expression. It is also crucial to match the shape and colour of the windows to the style of the architecture - from traditional solutions to modern minimalist forms.

Once you've decided what windows will grace your home it's worth knowing how to measure your window bay to order matching windows. Read about it in our article:

Doors - a safe and aesthetically pleasing entrance to the house

A door is an element that, in addition to its aesthetic function, must also meet safety and insulation requirements. When choosing a door for a façade, attention should be paid to its design, compatibility with the colour of the façade and the materials used in production. Today's doors usually combine elegance with modern technology while guaranteeing optimum protection.

External roller shutters - effective protection from the sun

External roller shutters are not only a decorative element, but also effective protection against excessive solar radiation and loss of heat from inside the building. When choosing roller blinds, it is worth paying attention to their colour and the way they are fitted so that they blend in perfectly with the façade. Automatic roller shutters with a remote control system may additionally increase the comfort of use.

External Venetian blinds - elegance and light control

An alternative solution to external Venetian blinds are facade blinds. External Venetian blinds are a stylish solution that not only bring elegance but also control the amount of light entering the interior. The variety of colours and materials makes it possible to adapt the blinds to a specific architectural style. Their adjustable design makes it easy to adapt the level of sunlight to current needs.
