Is there a standard window size for UK sash windows?
Houses come in all shapes and sizes. This is particularly the case with older period properties. You might be surprised to hear that there was actually a standard size for sash windows. During the Victorian and Edwardian periods, the standard size for sash window width was approximately 4 feet (1.2m). For Georgian and older properties sizes were more variable. Considering that the vast majority of properties with sash windows in the UK were built during the Victorian and Edwardian eras, these dimensions are an excellent starting point.
Rose Collection sash window sizes
In the 21st century, sash window manufacturing has come a long way. Our uPVC sash windows from the Rose Collection can be designed and manufactured in a range of sizes and configurations. If you require small, unusually shaped, or over-sized windows; we’ll endeavour to meet your requirements.
As a general guide, our sash windows are available up to the following maximum sizes:
