Renowned Interior designer Abigail Ahern has been a fan of Crittall for a long time. She has recently had a wonderful renovation in her house, featuring a wall of Crittall w20 windows and doors.
She says: “20 years ago when moving into a property in East London, I made a very bad call and installed a floor-to-ceiling glass wall with a steel beam cross.
The minute it went in I hated it (I actually cried for a month) it was the worst decision I have made stylistically.
However, that has now changed with the recent installation (albeit 20 years later) of my double-height Crittall windows. “I had no idea how transformative they would be – they feel both light, but so inclusive and cosy, which I was so missing before.
I am obsessed with the slim profile of the frames (so good looking) and it beautifully zones the garden – it looks grander and cooler than it ever has before.
Rather than just the solid glass wall, which felt so austere, the Crittall windows have
added such style to my space – so I’ve got this industrial, urban yet glam vibe going on.
I never realised how inclusive it would make the whole space feel, and how much more connected to outside I would feel. The vertical frames draw the eye up, making it feel larger and grander than it really is.
I literally cannot recommend enough – for me it’s life changing.
“I thought I had a pretty cool house before, but since this installation I actually never want to go out and leave! Am obsessed!”
