LORIMER WINDOWS

Tilt & Turn windows When Mr Stirling and his partner bought their * ago it was to be their forever property three years home, but they soon found the picturesque views of the Forth Road Bridge they loved so much were being obscured by their failing double glazing. Originally built in the 1970’s, the property’s windows and doors had never been replaced. Every detail was carefully considered when designing their new windows and doors – from the choice of style to the positioning of the openers. Lorimer tilt & turn windows suited the first floor living area perfectly, ensuring that when relaxing on the sofa their stunning view of the Forth was uninterrupted, while also opening at a safe height. Replacing narrow French doors with a single glass door on the adjoining balcony has not only increased the quality of light in the living area but also provided the family with much easier access. Impressed by the work of the whole CR Smith team and the quality of their bespoke Lorimer windows, the couple and their young daughter were overjoyed with the finished project.

“We now feel like we designed our home ourselves, because we didn’t just replace the windows and doors like for like. With the help of CR Smith, we have really made the most of our home and its beautiful view.” Mr Stirling

Let there be

LIGHT Casement windows

Mr & Mrs Cunningham decided they wanted a completely new look for their home, which would also allow them to banish the draughts and broken handles to the past. Having previously heard of the CR Smith Lorimer brand and its exceptional quality, they opted for Lorimer casement windows in modern anthracite grey for the exterior and crisp white for the interior, with beautifully contrasting Natural Ash internal timber finishes. 6

The couple were so delighted with the proposed designs they decided to rejuvenate the whole house with new windows and doors. French doors were installed in the dining room, flooding the space with natural light, and a new TimberPlus II front door in golden oak with full length Italia handle completed the transformation, adding an extra dose of kerb appeal.

Perfect

HARMONY Sliding Sash windows Mr & Mrs McKinnon live in an impressive 1930s semidetached house in Glasgow, and they desperately needed their windows replaced. The original timber sash and case windows were rotten, draughty and some were almost impossible to open. They did, however, have a beautiful stained glass design, which was an important feature of the house and the McKinnon’s did not want to lose any of their home’s character. Working with the couple, we styled their home with new Lorimer Sliding Sash windows, which are the perfect option for period properties. We then meticulously replicated the original stained glass at our manufacturing plant, incorporating the finished design into the double8

glazed units of their new Lorimer windows. “It was really important to us to recreate the original look, most importantly keeping our unusual stained glass design.” said Mr McKinnon. “We wanted like for like and that is what we have - and more.” The couple are delighted that the finished installation has replicated the appearance of the original windows beautifully and the extra benefits are vast.

“The house is now much warmer and we can no longer hear people walking past along the street!” Mr & Mrs McKinnon

LORIMER REVERSIBLE WINDOWS

DESIGN CHOICE

This window style is perfect for first floor rooms and flats or kitchens and bathrooms where taps may prevent the window from opening inwards. It swings out through 180ยบ, which means you can easily open the window without disturbing your curtains, blinds or anything on the sill and has clever built-in restrictors and anti-slam hinges.

DREAM ROOMS Nothing says more about you than your home. And our beautifully designed Lorimer windows can add to the look and character of your property like nothing else. 10

This popular, practical window opens two ways, either opening in like a door – which makes it incredibly easy to clean – or tilting inward at the top for ventilation. Its simple lines look great in any home, working especially well upstairs and, of course, in flats. 11


LORIMER CASEMENT WINDOWS Closely based on the design of an original timber window, the casement is our most popular and versatile style. Its slim shape and careful positioning of openers gives this window an elegant and well-proportioned look as well as providing exceptional ventilation. You can choose between clean, modern lines or more traditional features like astragals meaning the casement will perfectly suit any home.

Lorimer Orangerie Mr & Mrs Coates wanted to enjoy their landscaped garden and needed more space in their Falkland home. Working with one of our designers, the couple were able to create a striking additional living room without compromising on the beauty of their gently sloping garden. The couple loved the thought of a ‘floating’ space and our design team created this stunning orangerie sitting on a bridge, complete with walkway underneath. The anthracite grey is a perfect fit for the exterior of their home, complementing existing colours without compromising the modern design. The glass to floor windows keep the space open and maximise the light flow.

“We’re delighted with the work of the CR Smith tradesmen and our unique build has really completed our home – it’s a real talking point among our family and friends”. Mr Coates

When we fitted new Lorimer windows and doors for Mr & Mrs O’Sullivan, they were so pleased with the level of customer service received, they asked us to return a year later to design their extension. Mr and Mrs O’Sullivan wanted the design to be sympathetic to the existing features of their Victorian home. The outcome includes a beautiful feature wall showcasing the property’s original stonework and an exterior finished in matching stone, blending the old and new seamlessly. With a link to the kitchen and to 22

The new living area - which is on the first floor 24

team, who were praised by the couple for being attentive, hard-working and tidy throughout the renovation works, carefully worked around the home’s period features. They replaced the flooring with rustic Porcelanosa tiles to make the space feel like it was always part of the original layout, and retained a stone wall which has now become a stunning feature within the space.

The Caldwells opted for a stylish Lorimer sunroom on the first floor of their home in Perth, giving them an extended open plan living space which connects the dining room and kitchen.

“We never anticipated extending our home – we simply just wanted to get new French doors. But as soon as we saw the sunrooms and discovered the in-house design team could design an extension to suit our needs at a competitive price, we decided there and then to go for it and it was the best decision we ever made.” For exclusive offers call 0800 200 444 and quote CRH0519
