Georgian Bars are Back on Trend and Here to Stay!
If you have been scouring Pinterest and Instagram for bi-folding doors and windows, it’s highly likely you’ll have seen the pattern associated with Georgian – or Astragal – bars, as they are currently enjoying another round of popularity for homes, and commercial buildings.
Created by cleverly placing dividing bars across panes of glass, it’s a style from the Georgian period and but is enjoying a renaissance due to its ability to complement a classical, modern or commercial look, while completely transforming a space! If you love the minimalist look, the slim grids can give your home elements of modern industrial edge; if you prefer a more classic style, Georgian bars can take this look to the next level.
The bars are often made of the same material as the frames and are installed on top of the panes of glass. They give windows and doors an extra feeling of depth and privacy, and of course, offer a completely different look
The bars are put either horizontally, for more of a modern trendy, London look; or diagonally to create a more classic repeated diamond shape; or both horizontally AND vertically for a traditional grid effect.
Georgian bars have been traditionally found on a casement or fixed frame window than on a door, we’ve love it featured on bi-fold doors, as the style really complements the slim profile frames to give an extra feel of cosiness whilst still allowing homeowners to enjoy all of that beautiful light.
