Hi, do you live in a conservation area or is your property a listed building?

Thanks. Apologies for the delay.

Well, there is nothing stopping you from changing the size of your window.

Please bear in mind though that you may need Building Regulations approval from the Council, to make sure a suitable lintel support is installed to protect the structure of your main wall.

Your installer can advise you upon this. I hope this assists and if so I would be grateful if you could leave feedback at the top of your screen with 4 or 5 stars before you leave the site tonight.

Kind Regards
