Both are good materials. If it is a coastalarea then go for uPVC. Aluminium has sleek and thin sections in steel colour. uPVC has thicker sections in white colour. Make sure your bathroom tiles match accordingly.

I like the look of wood but see that in many places, it looks weathered and needs maintenance after a few years. So I was hoping to get wood-looking window frames.

My house will be right on the seafront, so it seems that we cannot use aluminium. Do you have any estimate of how long aluminium windows can last in coastal conditions?

@artius are these wood laminate windows available in Singapore and Malaysia?

@HU 2576...83, uPVC windows that look like wood can be considered.
