Tips for choosing windows and doors with the wow factor
Consider how you live
Think about how you want your new house or renovation to function. The life stage you are at, whether you have children living at home, and whether you spend a lot of time entertaining guests outdoors are all factors to consider when choosing joinery.
Decide on a look
Find examples of windows and doors that you like in home and lifestyle magazines and websites. Our brand websites have Inspiration Galleries online and save your favourite images, colours, styles, configurations and hardware.
Investigate your options
APL offers a wide range of solutions for all homes, from entrance doors to windows, sliders, bi-folds and thermally efficient products. Your home’s location and environment may affect the options available to you, as high-wind zones and coastal climates call for special solutions.
Choose your colours
Think about the colours and materials you’ve used elsewhere and choose joinery in a colour to complement these. Consider a statement colour for your front door.
Choose your hardware
Hardware completes the look and function of windows and doors. APL offers four ranges so you can colour-match hardware and joinery for a unified look or use a contrasting colour to make a statement.
Choose the glass you want
You can optimise the thermal efficiency of your home by choosing a performance glass, or by using Argon gas or a thermal spacer in your double glazing.
