You might be surprised to learn that more than a third of the installations for Georgian Bar go into new build developments. It’s an exciting part of the business, and Philip Dewhurst Jr, Director of Georgian Bar Company tells us what’s behind Britain’s love of Georgian style.
“Georgian style has never gone out of fashion. Perhaps it’s not surprising, because in the history of architectural influencers, the Georgians created the most elegant looking properties. The only problem is that there aren’t enough to go around. Which is why so many new build properties include Georgian architectural cues.
“People buying new homes want all the modern comforts, but they also want a more traditional look. One of the easiest ways for developers and architects to add interest is through the window design.
“Georgian styling for windows can help with getting developments approved. Planning departments sometimes look more favourably on more traditional designs, especially where they are in or near to conservation areas.
“Our Georgian Bar easy clip patented system means there’s a simple solution to create the look homeowners want. The bars are available in the top trending colours including Classic Cream, Black and Chartwell Green as well as a modern version in Anthracite Grey. Grey is very popular with the new homes where there’s a combination of the traditional look at the front of the property and modern glazing at the back. The grey means that the traditional and contemporary styling works well side-by-side, which is perfect for new build developments.
“Georgian Bar will continue to work closely with customers and specifiers to create Georgian elegance in homes both old and new.”
