Trends come and go, but some window trends are here to stay. In general, window construction and styles have lately gravitated toward energy efficiency and utility, with some even incorporating these features into more traditional choices, like double-hung windows.
Today, Kroll Construction discusses a few window design trends for 2019 and beyond.
A frame with a metallic finish versus an actual metal frame is at the crux of window frame decision-making. While homeowners like the look, committing to a frame they can tire of in a few years is a matter of concern. This is why black frames for replacement windows have begun to charm homeowners and window contractors alike.
Black is the catalyst behind a new wave of home trends that inspires homeowners, builders and designers to think about how this classic color can be used differently. Black windows are certainly not a novel concept, but their use grows by the day.
Color (Other Than Black)
What’s someone to do if they don’t like black as stated above? Color trends for 2019 offer something for everyone. You’ll surely find a great fit, from soft neutrals and pastels to bold palettes. For those who like the sun-kissed, light look, colors like classic white and soft beige can be considered for your windows. Perhaps sharkskin gray combined with white, beige or a classic wood finish? Try dark bronze and evergreen for an eye-catching look inspired by the more dramatic palettes of 2019.
Modern windows invite plenty of light into a home’s interior. Window options, such as our popular casement window, fit a contemporary home aesthetic. These replacement windows open with a crank without sacrificing function using a fold-away nesting handle for clean lines. Consider using them in double or triple combinations to make the most of them.
Homeowners are now more aware than ever of the environmental impact of their choices. When it comes to interior design, 2019 is a year that promotes a green approach by choosing home features and finishes that not only look great but also save energy or promote sustainability, such as low-E glass and recycled materials, respectively.
