Edwardian Windows – A History

The Edwardian period started in 1901, although there is debate on when the period finishes. The Edwardian era was a period of revivalism, mixing and matching from many different influences and periods.

The underlying themes of buildings in the Edwardian era were for expensive simplicity, space and light with less clutter than in the Victorian era.

Sash windows were still popular in the Edwardian period, although side hinged timber casement windows also became increasingly popular. Edwardian casement windows were often filled with floral patterns in coloured glass.

However, unlike the other periods, most sash windows had glazing bars separating the glass in the upper section, while the bottom section of the window was often left as a single pane.

Where to find Edwardian Properties

Examples of Edwardian properties can be found across the UK, with Edwardian homes common in Putney (SW15), Brentham garden suburbs (W5), and South East London.

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in Knightsbridge, re-built at the start of the Edwardian era, and the London Palladium, built in 1910, are both examples of buildings built during the Edwardian era, demonstrating the wide range of styles during the period.
