British Standard modular steel screens

As open-plan living has become a more common feature across British houses, there has been a rise in popularity of crittall windows being used as room dividers. Made from window panels set in steel, these stylish screens offer a way to separate rooms but allow them to open into one easily, and allow more light to flow through every part of a house. The industrial-style decorating item's popularity does not look to be waning, and now British Standard has introduced the first line of ready made crittall windows for a fraction of the cost of making them bespoke, as is the norm.

As with all of British Standard's beautiful designs, they follow the popularity of their sister company's - Plain English- most sought-after bespoke pieces. Plain English has been creating bespoke modular steel screens for its clients' kitchens and the British Standard versions will come in a range of available sizes to suit many homes. The prices start at £900, much lower than a bespoke option. They are easy to install and customers can add a custom panel, nib walls and down stands to make them fit into difficult spaces. The screens come unglazed, giving you the option to choose the finish that works best in your space: clear, reeded, cast or Georgian glazed.

The crittall window-inspired screens let light flow into previously closed off spaces, making them an ideal door for a pantry, utility room or larder. They allow you to make changes to your layout that appear structural, without having to bring the builders in and undergo huge renovations to create new walls. All this, and you can take them with you when you move house.
