Window Trends For 2018

We’re over halfway through the year and before we know it, it will be Christmas! Is 2018 going to be the year that you finally replace those tired, old windows and doors? We have put together some of the top trends of 2018 to help maximise your home.

Maximising Light

The initial reason for installing windows in your home is to bring in natural light. Therefore, why not ensure that you get the maximum amount of light possible? A sun-filled room can make the smallest of homes look spacious and airy. Every home needs natural light, it makes your home more inviting and a place that you will enjoy spending time with your loved ones in. Natural light is also good for your health, from the sunlight beaming through the windows carries Vitamin D which will boost your mood and keeps your immune system running well.

There are various other ways to maximise light in your home, mirrors being one of them. They are a great way of reflecting natural light around your home. Furthermore, keep your colour palette light. Using light colours around your home will help reflect the natural light which is beaming through the windows. Also, choose a hard floor over a carpet. A hard floor with a polished finish will also help bounce light around the room.

Finally, one of the most common ways to add light to your home, if you struggle for space is skylights. Having skylights can add a dramatic increase of natural light within a smaller, darker space. There are many choices and options when it comes to skylights, the sky is really the limit!

Energy Efficient Glazing

In any property, heat will be lost through windows and doors. Windows specifically are one of the weak spots in a house when it comes to losing heat. However, this can be reduced when a home has energy efficient double or triple glazing. We are serious about security, so when we fit the glazed windows we ensure that they will keep your home secure and weatherproof.

Energy efficient glazing reduces your carbon footprint, improves home security and reduces outside noise.

Modern Design with Indoor to Outdoor Connection

The ideal way to maintain the light and airy feel in your home is to maximise the glass area, open plan spaces are now as popular as ever.

Larger windows that double up as outside doors bring the inside and the outside of your home closer together. This doesn’t only just allow fantastic views of the landscape, but also adds to the landscape of your garden. This is one of the main reasons as to why large windows and glass doors are becoming increasingly popular.

Bi-folding doors are a great way to invite the outdoors into your home, creating a positive environment whilst bringing in light and fresh air. They are a simple but effective addition to your home to really make the most of the space you already have. Whether you own a traditional property or a sleek contemporary home, bi-fold doors can work for you.

Bi-fold doors are a new and exciting way to enjoy life in your home. Making it more enjoyable and relaxing.
