Trends in Window Design This Year

 

There are a few major, clear trends in window design that is here to stay in 2019. Architects are mulling windows together and occasionally mixing shapes in order to achieve the large window units that home buyers want. It depends on the weight of the glass when it comes to making an inoperable window larger than one that operates. For larger windows, such as in living areas, fixed windows are generally fine. South Florida Millwork vice president Joe LeFore notes that “everybody wants more glass and less frame,” and that “Bigger is better.” Florida Engineered Glass Corp., who provides hurricane windows and doors Miami homeowners trust, has seen that bigger windows with minimalist frames is a clear trend that is going to be here to stay for a while. We even occasionally do away with grids and muntins to increase the viewing area of the window. Moreover, while screens are always offered as an option, many people simply don’t want to have screens and don’t need the hassle of storing something away that they won’t be using, which is why screens are going away.

 

We Are Top Impact Window Manufacturers

 

When it comes to frames, painted metallic frames are a major trend, and the trend towards black frames on both the interior and exterior of windows continues to be a top trend. Painted frames are preferred over an actual metal frame, due to the fact that while home buyers may enjoy the look of a metal frame, it’s a concern that they may tire of the look in a few years and having an actual metal frame is a commitment. Moreover, aluminum windows are also costly to thermal break. The palette for other darker colors is also getting larger as they become more popular. Wood is popular in darker colored frames such as dark brown, barn red, and dark greens. While keeping costs in line is often at odds with trends in production building, Philadelphia architect Jim Wentling will often utilize smaller square windows as accents in Craftsman-style home, or in a ranch-style home accent with a ribbon window.
