window design trends

While most people simply think of windows in terms of function, energy-efficiency, and protection, they are also part of the design of your home. Windows don’t have to be an afterthought when planning your renovation. Instead, consider them part of the vision you have for your design. For inspiration, we’re sharing some window design trends you’ll love.

Black Frames

Black is back and is quickly becoming one of the most popular colors for windows for the interior and exterior. These windows can look stunning on the interior with light or dark walls. From the exterior, they’ll define your home and give the appearance of drama. For this trend, we recommend Milgard fiberglass windows.

Clean, Modern Lines with Expansive Glass

Squared edges are all the rage in window design trends. Crisp lines and modern looks work well with lots of different home styles, so it’s not relegated to just contemporary design. Clean lines are also driving the consumer to choose more fixed windows and casement windows over double-hung.

The new Trinsic Series from Milgard is a great choice for this trend with its expansive glass qualities and even sight lines. This also brings in more natural light to the home’s spaces, which is another ask for many homeowners.

Wood Windows with a Protected Exterior

Many homeowners still love the look of rich, real wood for the interior. The wood interior can complement or match any wood accents in the home. However, homeowners don’t want to worry about the exterior. That’s why Milgard offers a clad-wood window product, with wood options on the interior with a fiberglass cladding on the outside, which can be prefinished in 16 colors!

Blending of Interior and Exterior

As more homeowners create outside living spaces, the desire to merge interior and exterior is growing. This trend is best captured by the right patio doors for your home. This depends on how much room you have because patio doors are customizable to much larger widths than ever before. There different operating styles to fit your specific needs. With modern thin frames, the glass is all you see so that your outdoor living space simply becomes more square footage for you to relax and entertain.

Industrial Looks – Now Found in Homes

The industrial look has continued to grow in popularity, including everything from exposed ductwork to lots of metal accents. Homeowners now want to take this trend to their windows. To capture the look, aluminum windows are the best bet. These narrow frame windows are available in clear anodized or bronze anodized to best suit your space.
