Window & Door Trends

Open the windows and welcome 2021 in through the front door. Take a look at these window and door trends you will likely see this year!

Painted Window Frames

Windows are taking center stage in 2021. One of the growing trends is painted vinyl windows. Black vinyl frames are the most sought-after frame color against lighter siding creating a nice contrast and modern look. Other popular choices are dark brown and deep warm colors like reds and greens.

Wide doors

These extra wide doors won’t work everywhere, but if you are going for a contemporary and luxurious-look, extra wide entrance doors make a statement.

Tall doors

Installing interior doors that are ceiling height can lengthen the look of your living spaces. Often times without a traditional door casing, these tall doors draw the eye to the ceiling instead of cutting it off at the top of the door frame.

This trend is easier to incorporate into your front doors so long as the look of a tall door matches the overall style of your home.

Glass/ Sliding Doors

An easy way to maximize the space of your home’s interior is to include a sliding door. This type of door eliminates the need for the swinging space of a normal door. This is also an easy way to merge two rooms without taking out the door altogether, simply leave the sliding door open.

There are many different materials that can be incorporated into a sliding door. Glass sliding doors are popular for the entranceway to your back patio or yard. These types of doors also add natural light and open up the space. More modern types of sliding doors include a barn-style door or a Crittal style door which can add a design element to practically any room in your house. It can be used as a pantry door, bathroom door in your bedroom or any other interior entranceway.

Mixed Material Doors

Another way to add some interesting elements to your front door is to choose a mixed material door. Examples of materials that work well together are wood and aluminum, which conveys a rustic, yet modern look. Another example is metal and fiberglass. These materials are versatile and can be bought in a variety of colors and designs to suit your personal style. If you don’t feel like changing the overall shape of your doorway, replacing your traditional door with a mixed material door is an easy way to upgrade your home.

Replacing your doors is a moderately easy way to upgrade the entire look of your house by making one simple change. There are many types of doors to choose from, so make sure to do research on what would look best for your specific home style.
