Spook-tacular Glass Design Competition

To get your children into the spooky spirit of Halloween, we thought we would to give them something fun and creative to do. We ran a competition to design the most frightfully fun bespoke glass for us to install in a composite door in our showroom.

By Friday the 16 October, more than 20 of your spook-tacular window designs had been submitted! We were so impressed with all the entries and we’d like to thank everyone for amazing glass designs. That made judging very difficult for us and it was a hard task to choose the winner.

It’s time to get your home ready for Christmas with Trade Windows

You may have seen all over social media that we’ve now passed the 100 day countdown to Christmas. There are some of us who think talking about Christmas in September – or any time before December 25 – is shocking. But for those of us who like to be prepared to have the most wonderful time of the year, this is the ideal time to start thinking about the big day.

Getting ready for Christmas isn’t just getting all of the gift shopping, wrapping and cards done. Passing the 100 day milestone is the perfect marker to ask yourself, ‘Is my home ready for Christmas?’. Will you be able to enjoy the beautiful sights the wintery weather brings like snowflakes flowing down from the inky black sky or icy frost glistening over the greenery of your garden, from inside without worrying about the windows rattling and the conservatory being too cold, giving you the chills while watching Strictly.

Or will you be able to enjoy decorating your home with a big, beautiful tree with gifts pouring out from underneath, without struggling to find the room?

If the answer is no, it’s time to get your home ready for Christmas.

Can I get the Green Home Grant on my windows and doors?

The Green Home Grant scheme is eligible to some households and installations, provided they meet the criteria of the scheme.

The only windows that apply are single glazed windows being replaced with double glazed windows.

Eligible households have earnings on less than £30,000 a year.

The Government is yet to announce the details of upgrading to energy efficient doors, but it’s likely that it will only be for replacing old timber doors. As soon as we have more information, we will let you know.

Please note: the Green Home Grant is not available for extension, conservatories, or new build.

If you have any further queries, please call us on 01332 75551 or email reception@tradewindows.com


Can I have a pink front door, please?

Front doors became the focus of colour as neighbours got together every Thursday to show their support for the NHS and other front-line workers. Pink is the colour of the moment and a trend for pink front doors started, and now the hashtag #pinkdoor is the most popular colour for doors on Instagram with more than 62,837 posts!

It’s been adopted as the official colour for 2020 and we think the reason it caught on is because it looks truly amazing. Pink is an uplifting colour and generates feelings of creativity, care and passion.

We have two pinks in our 2020 Colour Edit, Miami Sky, a modern and dramatic pink replicating the sunsets over Miami’s famous Ocean Drive; and Cotton Candy that’s as light as air and perfect for front doors framed with rambling roses on a chocolate box cottage. If you don’t fancy a pink front door, but still want an individual look here’s the rest of our 2020 Colour Edit:

Hot Mustard

Wow! This gorgeous yellow says hello summer and welcome home. Inspired by fields of mustard, this is the colour linked to the countryside across the Derbyshire dales.


Cotswold is the colour of the early morning mist as it lifts on a sunny autumn day. Perfect for Derbyshire’s country cottages in our many historic towns and villages.


It might be the colour of cloudy skies, but this is a seriously cool colour for entrance doors. It says we are protected and safe inside!

Stormy Seas

This gorgeous blue gives entrances an up-to-date twist on a classic turquoise, which makes it perfect for modern doors with steel handles.

Bahia Blue

If you want to get away from it all, Bahia Blue offers island life. This is for world travellers who want that feeling of freedom even when they are at home, and it suits both classic and modern door designs.

Victory Blue

Think Colonel Tom, and this is the blue that comes to mind. Victory Blue says classic, strong and determined which makes it perfect for Victorian and Georgian homes. Enhance the colour even more by adding bevelled and crystal glazing.

Duck Egg

This is a quintessential English colour and designed to enhance the classic architecture from the Victorian Villas to 1930s suburban semis. The large proportions of rooms and the generous frontages makes these homes perfect for family living. Duck Egg says a warm welcome to guests.


The darkest blue with hints of purple create Ink.  Choose this colour for entrances to go against crisp white render in modern homes. Perfect for the contemporary styles with chrome handles and simple satin glazing.

Very Berry

Very Berry is another striking colour, and again its ideal for modern doors. Warm and inviting, this luxurious deep red is a bold choice.


Living life to the full? Then Hacienda is for you. The name says it all with its influence from Spain and dark terracotta pots in inner courtyards. Choose a black door frame to add to the drama.

Whatever colour you choose, whether it’s from our standard range, our 2020 Colour Edit, or you want something even more individual, talk to the team at Trade Windows and we will help you get the perfect entrance for your home.
