2023 Window & Door Trends

2023 Window & Door Trends

While New Year does not equal New Home, it does open the door to home upgrades and renovations. If you’re ready for a change and are unsure about which area of your home to invest in, we’ve compiled 10 top 2023 trends for your doors and windows this year.  

1. Monochromatic and Dark Window Trim 

Last year’s trend of using black or dark window trim to add drama to your home’s façade is bolstered by this year’s dark palette of Colors of the Year suggested by designers and paint companies. The 2023 colors range from a crimson hue called Viva Magenta from Pantone and Benjamin Moore’s Raspberry Blush, and combined with dark window trim make for a moody and warm interior. Also popular this year is the design concept of matching your interior trim to your wall color to create an effortless flow and a modern monochromatic calming appearance.  

2. French Doors 

Large entryways are becoming more and more common to add curb appeal and create a lasting first impression on guests. French doors add a grand effect to your entryway and can even make your home seem larger 

3. Large Front Doors 

If French doors aren’t your thing, you can still elevate your front entryway with a larger size front door. Widening your door frame and adding a custom sized door will make your exterior seem bigger, adding a grand effect with just a slight difference.  

4. Rounded Window Frames 

Providing some architectural interest, arched windows and doors help to also soften a home’s interior look. Rounding out this trend is a nod to the curved shape with the room’s furnishings. 

5. Picture Windows and Art Deco Shapes 

With its simplistic and sleek look, large picture windows add an unobstructed view of the outdoors and allow natural light to flow inside. This feature matches in any style home because of its sleekness and simplicity and is especially a favored window style with modern homes. Windows can help capture an art deco look by combining window shapes to create a modern design. 

6. Glass Detailed Front Door 

Letting natural light into your home makes it feel larger, brighter and can even lower your electric bill. Adding glass detailing to your front door is a small feature that could bring in this natural light into your entryway room, and adds a stylistic feature to your front door. 

7. Bold Color Front Doors 

Simply painting your front door makes your house stand out, and adds personal flair and charm to your home’s exterior. Consider replacing your front door if your wood is stained or worn, as a fresh coat of paint will look best on a smooth, clean, wood material door.  

8. Bay & Bow Windows 

Bay and bow windows are windows that extend slightly out of your home and incorporate more glass. They add a focal design point in the room, and makes it feel bigger since they add interior space. If you have a backyard with a view, bay or bow windows are a great way to accentuate this. 

9. Mixed Material Doors 

A good way to add interesting elements to your home’s exterior is incorporating a mixed material front door. Some materials that work well together are metal and fiberglass, as well as wood and aluminum. Upgrading the material of your hardware is an easy way to upgrade your door without replacing it.  

10. Upgrading Your Windows 

This exterior upgrade does some double duty for your design trend upgrade. Upgraded windows add resale value to your home and can save you a significant amount on your electric bill. Energy-efficiency started as a trend that is now a lifestyle.
