Window and door trends for 2018/2019

Windows and doors are an integral part of any building. From large, commercial spaces to bijoux domestic homes, windows, and doors help to give a property its character and its style. Replacing old, tired windows and doors can therefore dramatically alter the look and feel of a space, both inside and out. To help you find the perfect new windows and doors for your property, we’re taking a look at some of the most exciting and stylish trends for 2018/19.

Industrial

The industrial look has been gaining popularity for some years now and in 2018/19, the aesthetic is really starting to take hold. From inner cities to small towns and the suburbs to the countryside, more and more homeowners are opting to give their windows and doors an industrial makeover. Think exposed steel frames, deep grey tones and strong, durable materials.

Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is something that’s very important to homeowners everywhere. Not only do well made and well fitted doors and windows help to minimise draughts and keep the warm air in, they can also dramatically reduce your home energy bills. If you want to improve the efficiency of your home, while doing your bit for the environment, investing in modern, energy-efficient windows and doors is definitely the way to go.

Expansive glass

These days, homeowners want to enjoy expansive, uninterrupted views from their bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens. As well as providing homeowners with sweeping vistas, expansive glass panels in doors and windows also allow more light into a property and increase the connection between the inside and outside areas of your home. As @builderonline says, “The growth in outdoor living has driven demand for opening glass walls and lift-and-slide doors, as well as larger windows mulled together.”

Coloured frames

Windows and doors are increasingly being used by homeowners to add style and individuality to their properties. When it comes to windows, a great way to add a bit of character is to invest in brightly-coloured frames. Giving your windows a unique look and bringing a splash of colour to your home, bold frames can look great on a variety of properties.

Bright doors

If you like the sound of adding colour to the exterior of your property, but want to leave your windows neutral, you could opt for a brightly coloured front door instead. A fantastic way to add a bit of character and personality to your property, doors are available in a great choice of tones. Match your front door colour to your paintwork or plant some complementary flowers in your front garden to really make your new palette sing.
