New Styles of Sash Windows
For the residents of the UK, the options are unlimited. From Victorian styles to those from the Edwardian periods and Georgian times, sash windows would work for all these types of architecture and more. To start, you need to distinguish between these three different eras of design and architecture.
In the Victorian period, the design used to be pretty straightforward. There used to be window panes, and each of them would be separated and divided with the help of an astragal bar. With tons of technological advancements present in this era, this design was possible as the windows frames, we able to support the more extensive glass sections
In the Georgian period, the box sash windows used to be divided into around six panes, which would be placed over six panes. Even to this day, this style of box sash windows is being carried forward. In initially, it was done in this manner to support the shorter glass squares. However, today, you will note that it was done in this manner purely for aesthetic purposes.
The Edwardian period is where the Victorian two-pane style and the Georgian six-panes styles were combined. As a result, we get a unique window design on the bottom and the upper sash layer as well.
