It doesn’t happen very often, so when it does, you want to get it right. Is now the time to replace your windows? If so, you’ll want to install something that will look great for years to come while providing you with plenty of light and shelter from the elements. In this article we’ll go over four popular window trends to give you some ideas when the time comes to make your purchase.
Energy Efficient Windows
Windows are no longer simply for light, fresh air and viewing. Today’s double and triple glazed windows can actually save you big money with regards to your energy bills. Modern materials have increased the ability of your windows to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This is a trend that’s not going to go away. Now is the time to take advantage of replacement windows that will save you money in the long run.
Soundproof windows are great for those who live next to busy roads, are employed in shift work or who simply need peace and quiet to get a good night’s sleep. Today’s soundproof windows can reduce noise pollution by up to 95%. Thicker glass and larger air spaces reduce the ability of sound waves to travel freely. Although not cheap, if you have a problem with noise, this is something you’ll want to look into.
Floor To Ceiling Windows
To make the most of a beautiful view you’ll want to install larger windows. Floor to ceiling windows with smaller frames are popular for the back of a house that looks out onto a backyard or other vista. Not only will you get a better view, you’ll allow a lot more natural light to enter.
Coloured Window Frames
White frames have been the norm for ages, but different coloured frames are becoming more popular. Black or grey framed windows seem to add a touch of class to the home’s exterior. They also match well with almost any type of furniture or paint scheme inside the house. You can even get frames that have different colours on each side allowing them to function best with whichever direction they’re facing.
