Sash windows are the epitome of the style and grace of Britain’s historic architecture, adding elegance and romance to buildings. Traditional sash windows date back to the 17th century during the English baroque period, when the landscape of Britain became a contrast of extravagance and simplicity.
The sash window has a long and varied history in the United Kingdom, beginning in the 17th century. This style of window is said to have Dutch origins and replaced the traditional ‘side-hung’ windows that came before. Their first recorded use in the UK was in 1676-80 at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire following the development of materials and the modernisation of building techniques.
