Getting to grips with modern window designs ultimately comes down to your personal taste and how your home will function on a day-to-day basis. A good range of styles and types works best for a practical house, as well as one that really showcases the time and effort put into a home renovation or self build. 

From casements and tilt-and-turns to picture windows and patio doors, the world of window styles is a diverse place so it is easy to get overwhelmed by choices and possibilities.
