Budget Friendly Windows and Doors – A Guide for Renovators

There are plenty of tasks on a renovator’s to-do list – and we certainly understand that sticking to the budget is at the top of that list!

There are many factors that go into window and door selection; between style, performance, security, energy efficiency, natural light and air transmission – there can be a lot of boxes to tick and strict guidelines to follow. With so many options out there, we thought we’d provide a guide to cost-effective windows and doors from Bradnam’s.

Bradnam’s Standard Features

One of the many advantages of choosing Bradnam’s is the standard of quality that comes in our base offering. Here’s a quick summary:

  • Our standard range includes a safety-first design that’s fully compliant with Australian Standards
  • Our windows and doors feature high-quality weather-stripping that provides superior protection against the elements, making them suitable for all climates including cyclonic regions.
  • With a curtain-friendly and easy-to-clean design, our Standard products offer effortless operation with ergonomic and high-performance design.
  • Bradnam’s standard range is simply stylish and architecturally symmetrical, providing a consistent design throughout the home.

Our Standard Selections are also available in a number of configurations, colours, and styles! Make sure you take advantage of our plentiful options to customise your space.

The Non-Negotiables

There are many essential selections and features of a modern Australian home, which we consider non-negotiables.

Sliding windows and Sliding doors are a natural choice for living, bedroom, and kitchen areas – being the go-to selection for renovators and builders alike. These selections make efficient use of space, provide plenty of natural light and airflow, and bring the outdoors in with rolling views – making them a statement piece in their own right!

For the bathroom, Louvre Windows are a must-have. The solution for a light and bright space, Louvre windows protect your privacy all whilst providing management of airflow, reducing condensation and eliminating the need for artificial fans and dryers.

Aussies know the struggle of flies and mosquitos intruding in your home! That’s why we recommend Security Screens to our customers – keeping bugs at bay and unwanted visitors out of your space.

Where to Splurge

Spending your budget in a strategic way is what we consider a fine art! For bigger purchases, here’s what we recommend:

Servery Windows are a gorgeous addition to any kitchen, and are an essential for lovers of dinner parties and Summer barbecues. Bradnam’s Gas Strut Awning window is a perfect selection in this context, allowing a seamless transition between your benchtop and alfresco dining area.

Bi-Fold Doors instantly enhance any living space, adding value to your property and showcasing uninterrupted views of your garden. This fully retractable selection allows control over the air you let into your space, as well as opening your living area to include your outdoor space.

Double-Glazing is quickly becoming a standard feature in all Australian windows and doors, given its ability to reduce energy bills and sound transmission, and improve the comfort of your home year-round. We definitely endorse this feature in both renovated and new builds.

The Takeaway

If you’re renovating your home, Bradnam’s Windows and Doors are what you’re looking for! Our standard features mean that you can achieve high performance selections without stretching your budget, and our additional features and customisable products allow you personalise the home where it matters most.
