Accent Aluminium Windows Gets a Spot on Channel 7’s House Rules

If you’re a fan of the show like we are, you would likely have noticed our aluminium windows being featured on House Rules. In the episode featuring a new house build in Cranbourne, contestants were issued the challenge of creating a light-filled space for their fellow competitors’ ‘forever home’. We were thrilled to work with the show’s producers in recommending aluminium window models that would help do just that!

The rules were simple, and the goal was to create a natural feel to show participants Kayne and Aimee’s new home. Designed to be spacious yet simple, wood panel walls and surfaces were a strong feature within their home. When combined with an abundance of natural light, spaces like these tend to create a calming atmosphere – especially when matched with indoor plants. Ideally, any type of furnishing within this sort of interior space would suit material like leather, as well as fabrics that complement the same colour scheme.

Designer Aluminium Windows, Stylish Melbourne Home

Our crew from Accent Aluminium Windows was there with the producers and participants of the latest House Rules season, to help kit out the Cranbourne home with a set of fitting aluminium windows. Sleek in black trimmings, these offered not just aesthetic appeal, but also energy efficiency, as all our products do. Made right here in our Bayswater North factory, our aluminium windows fit the need for light-filled rooms perfectly in Cranbourne. The look on the participants’ faces would have said enough: a light-filled kitchen and living room are exactly what their forever home needed the most! The next time you’re tuned in to House Rules on Channel 7, remember to keep a lookout for how our aluminium windows help new homeowners create the light-filled interior spaces that they had always dreamed about.

Gem of Malvern


We at Accent Aluminium Windows and Doors have recently successfully completed a landmark project in Malvern. We collaborated with some of the most renowned professionals in the building industry and achieve the final fruits of our synergetic efforts.
Please find below some of the key partners:

All the windows and door used in the project were meticulously designed by our sales and estimation team complying with all the regulations.

The products were crafted at our Baywater North manufacturing facility by some of the highly skills fabricators.

Finally installed by our highly proficient installation team.

Luxury homes specialist Accent Aluminium Windows and Doors completed project in Malvern, the heart of prestigious homes in Melbourne and still stands heads and shoulders above the rest,

Our team at Accent had to overcome many challenges during the process from various shaped windows, massive size panels to highly complex and sensitive logistics due to the location of the block and the placement of the windows.

For this project panels were as heavy as 500kgs and we had to engaged two cranes (spider crane and mobile / telescopic crane) just to handle weights.

There were a range of products used in the project as listed below:

  1. Eco Wall 225mm: This one has been beautifully used between the dining and the stairs. The wall expands into 2 floors also over-looking the vertical garden on one side while up stair hallway looking down on the other. Eco Wall 225mm frame was perfectly used to open the space and lighten up the whole building.
  2. Very large Commercial Awning Windows: This was used in the front of the house on both the floors. This creates the clean vertical look like also facilitating ventilation.
  3. Top Hung Sliding Door: This is a perfect example of what the sliding door have become in the 21st century. Beautiful 6 panel top hung sliding doors opening in the corner with sill recessed in the floor using additional drains. The way the slide is nothing less than a piece of art when you put it in context of the room.
  4. Double Glaze Sashless Windows: Perfectly used in the around full sized floor to ceiling fixed windows to have the best ventilation while having minimum interruptions the view.
  5. Hinged Door with Translucent Glass: This combination is used in the basement toilet which has a natural source of light hitting the door. Through the translucent glass the light penetrated into the small space lighting it up.
  6. Butt joint and corner butt joint fixed window: This is used in the gym in the basement and what a perfect way to remove all interruptions and expand the space from the gymnasium to the car park.
  7. Raked window. Particularly angled at bottom: used right next to the stairs which is usually a narrow confined space. By using a raked window aligned with the flow of the stairs creating a practical solution for light and space while significantly acquiring a style of It’s own.
  8. Massive window showcasing the vertical garden. Combining inside with outside while opening up the gates for light to flow into the stairs and the basements. The size of the window rising from the basement level pushing its way all the way to the ceiling is a very creative and genius way to introduce glass while maintaining soft feel of home.

The outcome is a piece of art and a delightful experience inside out, the finish accentuates the values that Accent believes in and that is 100% satisfaction and value for the customer.

Truly a Gem of Malvern.

Designed to straddle the water-sensitive divide between the indoor and outdoor spaces, threshold drains have become a focal point in many home designs. They feature a linear stainless-steel drainage system with a concealed channel section for door tracks and thresholds.

The smooth integrated concealed sub sill collects water and condensation around the doorway, carrying it to an external draining system

These stunning and practical drains can also integrate seamlessly into sliding doors, bi-fold doors and pivot doors.

5 Signs That It’s Time To Replace Your Windows

IKkUeZfc

Checking the conditions of your windows from time to time should be taken into consideration, as windows play an important role in your household. Windows can add value to your home, improve your comfort, increase energy efficiency and provide more access to natural light. So, when was the last time you checked your windows? How will you know when it’s time to replace them?

We’ve put together the 5 biggest signs that indicate you need new windows:

  1. Difficulty opening, closing and locking windows: Close and open each window in your home to check for smooth operation, if it requires some force and pressure to open then it’s time to replace them. Windows that are difficult to operate may be rusted over, making it a chore for you to open and close. If your windows don’t close properly, you probably won’t be able to lock them, which can impact the safety of your home.
  2. Window Frames Are Decaying: Window frames are constantly exposed to moisture and it can build up over time, causing serious decay and safety issues.
    Having a build-up of moisture can also cause leaky windows, as a result, you could find some droplets or even small pools of water around your home from your windows. If you notice that your frames show signs of decay or there are droplets of water around your home, then this is a definite sign that you need a serious upgrade.
  3. Windows Aren’t Soundproofing Your Home: Windows are designed to reduce the amount of sound from outdoors, which can make a huge difference to homeowners who live on a busy road. If your window is shut and you can clearly hear noises from outside, then this is probably an indicator that your window needs replacing. So, if you want a window that ensures you peace and quiet in your home; then organizing new window installation is the way to go.
  4. Windows are Drafty: Do you feel a breeze from your windows when they’re closed? In this case, there may be a broken or faulty seal that causes your window not to shut properly and changes the overall temperature in your home. As a result, your energy bills will be higher as your system would work in overdrive to keep up with the fluctuations in temperature. Installing a new window will eliminate those drafts and drastically improve your energy efficiency.
  5. Condensation build-up: Not all condensation is bad, but if you notice that your windows are building up condensation between the layers of glass, it means your seals have failed and allowed moisture between the glass panes. Once the seals fail your windows become leaky and the efficiency is gone. So, if you do see condensation between the two panes of glass, then that’s a sign to get your windows replaced before they get too leaky.

Do You Think Your Windows Need Replacing?

If you’re finding that your windows aren’t operating properly then you need to choose the right installation team to replace them. At Accent Windows, we understand that replacing your windows is a big investment; that’s why we work with you to provide you with windows that are as unique as your home. We offer custom exterior colours to perfectly match the exterior colour of your home, while also offering a variety of designer glass options, allowing you to personalize your windows to match the aesthetics of your home.
