EYG Windows

What are Crittall windows and doors and how you can 'get the look' with EYG's lookalike range

26th April 2022

Anyone following interiors accounts on Instagram will by now be familiar with ‘Crittall’ style windows and doors.

The style of windows has swept the UK interiors world in the past few years, with the signature black-framed grid windows featuring in the smartest of UK homes.

This original Crittall window is made from steel and is therefore expensive and has only been available to the most exclusive of postcodes.

EYG launches affordable alternative to Crittall style


However, EYG has now launched its own steel-look range of UPVC or aluminium windows and doors - which are significantly cheaper than the original.

We recently glazed a large kitchen/living room extension in this style, with large steel-look bifold doors, rear door, and various sized windows.

Owner Ellie, from east Yorkshire, was delighted with the stunning effect we created, with the black frames really standing out against the backdrop of the external white render which her extension was finished in.

She also opted for black frames on the inside, which complemented the contemporary interior of her kitchen and living room.

Ellie said: “It was EYG who suggested this style to us. We absolutely love the style and everybody comments and say they love it too.”

Grand Designs magazine also recently devoted a full page to the iconic window and door style, noting that it was a “trending” design.

Our steel-look range includes windows that can be made in either UPVC or aluminium.

The UPVC option is the most economical but has a slightly thicker profile, whereas the aluminium is slimmer but the slightly costlier version.

EYG also manufactures front and back doors; bifold doors; modern sliding doors and French doors in the steel lookalike style, which can be made in either UPVC or aluminium.
