Windows and doors are the first impressions of your home. They can enhance both the exterior and interior of your home drastically. However, old windows and doors can be an eyesore and might be costing you money. If it’s time for an upgrade, make 2019 the year to replace the older windows, doors, or hardware. Below some 2019 Window and Door Trends.
2019 Window and Door Trends
The windows in your home can impact the areas. New window installation can give your home a much-needed facelift by improving your home’s décor, curb appeal and efficiency.
a) Energy Efficiency
- This year especially, homeowners are focusing on sustainability and how choices made inside the home will impact the environment.
- Most homeowners will opt to install new windows because they’re not doing the basic function of keeping the cold air out in the winter and the hot air in the summer.
b) Modern Fixed Windows
- Big windows with even bigger views are window goals for homeowners.
- This year expect to see more floor to the ceiling windows with modern minimal frames.
- An inoperable fixed window will give homeowners uninterrupted views.
c) Black Framed Windows
- Cookie-cutter white framed windows are on the decline now that matte black is having a huge moment in 2019.
- Black framed windows will turn your new windows into a statement piece and work well with both traditional and modern homes.
- While white framed windows will always be in style and look timeless, houses with black window frames look up-to-date and fresh.
Your home’s front door is the first impression of your home. Updating your door doesn’t mean getting a totally new one. These trends will help you update your current door or persuade you to replace your outdated one.
a) Smart Door Lock
- Have you ever left your home and couldn’t remember if you locked the door?
- What about that time you couldn’t reach your keys to unlock the door because your hands were full? Smart door locks work with your phone through Bluetooth and downloadable smartphone applications to help you out if you find yourself in those situations in the future.
b) Upscale Hardware
- Not all doors need and should be replaced. Sometimes, just a change of the hardware is a small change that will make an impact on your curb appeal.
- Metallic details, like the new door knocker or knob, mixed with another finish like natural wood are an up to date take on this trend.
c) Blue Door
- With more homeowners looking to make significant curb appeal updates, you’ll notice that front doors are getting colorful facelifts.
- While red has been a trendy choice in the past, 2019 is the year of a blue door.
