Oak Flooring And uPVC Windows – Problem Solved!

Oak Flooring and uPVC WindowsUp and down the country, after giving their front rooms the ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition‘ treatment couples everywhere get into arguments and debates.  And this is after all of the hard work is finished….

She’s spent time and money choosing furniture and co-ordinating paint samples with fabric swatches, while he has spent his precious weekends fitting the ‘perfect’ engineered oak flooring, at her request.  Finally, the flooring is polished, the new cushions are plumped up and the vases of flowers are arranged….

It all seems perfect; He breathes a sigh of relief, and says to his partner “so, we’ve finally finished?”   But she’s still not happy.  She’s noticed a problem… and he hasn’t spotted it:

The UPVC window.

Next to the fabulous oak flooring, the white plastic uPVC window now just looks ugly and out of place.

Shiny white plastic does NOT match with luxury flooring and she knows it.  Declaring the ‘makeover’ a failure, she demands a new window – with a wooden frame – it’s the only thing that will make the room “feel right”.  But he knows that no matter how “right” the room feels, come Winter, a wooden window frame won’t keep the room feeling warm!   But she doesn’t care, she shouts the the “plastic window does not match the perfect oak flooring or subtle colour scheme!”

She’s right…White UPVC does not scream ‘quality’, yet oak flooring oozes it. In a newly decorated room this can be a real dilemma – So, what should they do? Is there a compromise?

Luckily, yes there is! Did you know that you can get uPVC windows in a wood effect, which will match oak flooring perfectly?

Additionally, wooden-effect uPVC has many advantages over regular wooden windows.  Wood can rot and decay over a number of years and it can also be particularly problematic if your house gets damp.  Additionally wood windows need frequent care, painting and may need replacing, which is costly.  In contrast, wooden-effect uPVC looks as good as the real thing and it DOESN’T need all of the extra care that wooden window frames need.  All you need to do is wipe the mock-wood with a damp cloth!

So there you go – problem solved!

Beautiful oak flooring with matching windows AND all the benefits of uPVC glazing!  Perfect!
