Quaint Cornish Cottage with Bygone windows

When a couple called into the Collington & Company showroom in Cornwall, they had just seen and fallen in love with some windows they had viewed in a quaint Cornish cottage nearby.  The couple were very interested in having the same ‘timber windows’ they had viewed. 

This typical Cornish cottage on the Lizard Peninsula, in Poldark country, had been lovingly restored to its former glory and Collington & Co had installed the perfect windows to complement the authentic style of the property. 

Can you imagine the couple’s surprise when they were advised that the windows were in fact low-maintenance Bygone PVC-U windows available in the colour of their choice!

Colin Opie from Collington & Company says “When you view the Bygone Melody sash windows in-situ you can hardly believe they are not timber.  The bespoke windows are perfectly accentuated with exclusive Pewter beehive Bygone furniture and sprayed in a beautiful grey to match the doors and picket fencing around the property.

Bygone sash windows are truly the ideal replacement for original timber box sash windows.  They combine the low-maintenance and energy efficiency of modern material with the classic aesthetics and traditional design features of timber.
