Modern Trends in Home Windows
Once you’ve decided to give your home windows a subtle revamp with Renewal by Andersen Window Installation, you’re ready for the fun part. You now get to choose what window styles you want in your home. With so many different window styles popping up in newer homes and buildings, it can be hard to figure out what to choose for your own home. Whether your home is a classic, modern, or an eclectic mix of styles, you can try and figure out what works for you without spending a ton of money or creating a messy aesthetic. If you’re interested in the newest trends for 2018, here are a few helpful hints for designing the perfect home window.
Black and White is In
What’s better than the look of a fresh black and white print or accent? There’s very little in the world of design that can evoke a sense of freshness, classic beauty, and elegance without costing a fortune. Putting a bit of black trimming against a white background can go a long way toward making your home window treatment stand out. Another beauty of black and white styles is that they’re endlessly customizable and work with anything. Even if you’re planning on designing an incredibly colorful room, your black and white window framing will only enhance the other colors and work doubly hard to make them pop.
Squares Trump Arches
While there’s something regal and mysterious about a high arch, the new year is all about squares and rectangles for the win. If you were thinking about designing a high-up half-moon arch, consider a traditional square skylight instead. You’ll be letting in the same amount of light, expanding the look and feel of your room, and keeping up with the freshest styles all at once. The great thing about square-shaped windows is that they never really fall out of style. Most windows utilize a classic square or rectangle shape, so investing in this style will mean you won’t ever be stuck with an outdated-looking window, no matter how long you decide to stay in your current home.
Go for Wide Windows
When it comes to views, wide is where it’s at. Modern homeowners are more interested in large, undivided panes of glass like those offered by the picture window or bay window styles rather than the more sectional look and feel of a traditional double-hung window. Casement windows can also offer a wider expanse of glass since they’re built to show off a great view.
Choose Classy Wood Motifs
2018 is about wood all the way. But not just any wood. You want to invest in a high-end, beautifully polished dark wood like cherry-stained oak or fine-grained mahogany. Whatever wood you choose, make sure it’s going to stand out and really make your windows pop.
Cut a Clean Line
The latest trends aren’t about mess or chaos. Cutting a clean, orderly line goes along with the black and white motif in terms of keeping things simple and elegant. Try to choose crisp, neat cuts that allow each window to perfectly frame the view without any extra design distractions.
