5 Residential Window Trends: Style and Function for Your Replacement Windows

Are you considering replacement windows for your home? Want to make them stylish and functional? Then you’ll want to consider these residential window trends. After all, windows are more than just space fillers—they can add design details to the interior and exterior of your home. So why not add a little whimsy or modern flair to your home’s new windows.

Black Hues

Black is the fundamental modern neutral. A black window finish on the interior or exterior is striking and sleek. On the inside, you can pair your dark window trim with dark walls for a subdued look or with white for a dramatic contrast. For black finished windows, we recommend Integrity Ultrex fiberglass windows. These windows have an industry-best acrylic finish that meets AAMA’s 624.10 finish specifications.

Clean Lines

Homeowners are loving sharp edges and clean lines for a contemporary feel. These longed for details have brought back the desire for aluminum windows and the choice of casement windows over double-hung windows. For a contemporary aluminum look, we recommend Milgard aluminum windows. Depending on your region, you may want to use Milgard Thermally Improved Aluminum windows. The aluminum frame is also available in four colors: white, tan, clear anodized, and dark brown anodized.

Expansive Glass

If you have a view worth framing, then expansive glass is for you. It’s also a good choice if you want to seamlessly merge indoor and outdoor living spaces. These narrow profile windows deliver a clean aesthetic that is perfect for the minimalist crowd but also flexible enough to fit with any type of architecture.

For expansive glass windows and multi-slide patio doors, we recommend Marvin’s Scenic Door Collection and Western Window Systems. Both brands have unique perspectives on expansive glass that are sure to impress you.

Energy Efficiency

As Californians, it’s critical to be mindful of the efficiency of your windows. Not all windows have the attributes you need to ensure that they are performing as they should. Fiberglass, vinyl, aluminum, and wood windows can also qualify as ENERGYSTAR® certified, as long as they have Low-E glass features. You’ll want to ask about each window’s R-value, U-value, and ability to meet Title 24 requirements.

Fiberglass as the New Favorite

Fiberglass is one of the most durable and versatile materials in window production and beyond. If you are considering a window replacement, you should look into all the benefits of fiberglass windows. These windows perform in any climate—rainy, hot, humid, and dry. Fiberglass doesn’t react to the change in conditions like many materials do. It doesn’t bow, warp, peel, or contract.

You can also make fiberglass windows look how you like. Choose a woodgrain finish or a painted wood finish.

These residential window trends are a great way to inspire what you’ll choose to do with your new windows. We’re here to help you through the process of finding the right windows. Get in touch today to get started.
