Window Trends To Help Enhance Décor, Add Light, and Save on Energy


If you are considering replacing the windows in your home, Designer Door & Window wants you to be aware of the recent trends in the market. Replacement windows are an important part of your home’s curb appeal and interior design, and will also enhance the efficiency and value of your home.

One emerging trend has homeowners becoming partial to inviting extra light into their homes’ interiors, which makes large picture-style windows very popular. These windows also enable you to visually bring nature indoors by providing a bright, expansive view of the outdoors. These high windows will also complement soaring ceilings and related interior architectural features, which in turn increase the amount of light filtering in from the home’s exterior.

The trend toward high, picture style windows also helps to save money on monthly utility bills, making this style a perfect fit for homeowners seeking to decrease their energy consumption. And, since homeowners consider every feature of a home for energy efficiency, many are opting for multi-pane glass that is promoted by ENERGY STAR® (a joint program of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy that helps save money and protect the environment through the adoption of energy efficient products and practices).  According to industry estimates, homeowners can save as much as 15% on their energy costs.

Another emerging trend that energy-conscious homeowners are choosing is windows with an additional coating to reduce heat and ultraviolet rays. In addition to impacting your energy bills, these windows can help keep your furniture colors from fading.

Finally, more homeowners are showing an increased preference for dark finishes for their window designs in order to mesh with kitchen and bath hardware and appliances. Dark exterior cladding finishes also reflect the environment. While eggshell and white are still popular color choices, you would do well to take advantage of the available variety of colorful windows to make a bold, dynamic statement.
