Windows help to give a certain aura to your home and allow natural light to enter every room of your house. Many homeowners have spent more time at home in light of the pandemic, necessitating that they make their home a place that they love to be. One way to do this is to change up the windows of your home. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out some of these interior design trends we expect to see rise in popularity in 2021.
1. The Bigger, the Better
Many homeowners are becoming more intrigued by the idea of large windows in their homes. Many assume that the bigger the window, the better it will be. Some contractors are even seeing requests for windows as large as 79 inches in height. Large windows allow for more sunlight to pour in, which has a natural ability to make you feel happier. They can also cover a large portion of a certain wall of a room to dramatically alter its aesthetic.
2. Dark Framing
If you were to walk into a typical home, you would most likely see white window frames on almost every window of the home. Darker window frames, however, are becoming increasingly popular—including black ones. They give off a minimalistic, industrial, or modern vibe to really make your home feel unique. Black frames could also become a large selling point if you ever decide to move out of your home.
3. The Use of Technology
Every part of your home is becoming more and more advanced, and this trend is continuing with the use of technology for the windows in your home. You can remotely control the curtains, the blinds and even the locks on your window through this technology. It makes your home even smarter and increases automation to enhance your productivity demands, especially if you are spending more time working from home now.
4. An Increase of Shutters
Shutters are becoming nostalgic. This has made them very popular for home windows in recent years, and the trend is only expected to become stronger going into 2021. There are all sorts of stylistic variations to choose from including nautical shutters, antique shutters and more. Many modern shutters that are available today are more functional and easier to control than the ones of decades past, with some even having the technological features previously mentioned. Most importantly, shutters have the ability to showcase your and your home’s personality through your windows!
5. Indoor-Outdoor Connections
Many homes today also use windows to enhance the connection between the indoors and the outdoors. Homeowners have made the indoor parts of their home cozy and comfortable, while the outdoor places are a safe as well as entertaining space. Windows with sliding doors, for instance, are becoming increasingly popular, allowing the transition from inside to your outside sanctuary to be seamless. There are even windows now available that you can walk through.
Windows, quite literally, let others see into your lives by looking into your home. They help to bring a sense of freshness and joy into your home as well through letting sunlight in. There are many window trends, just as there are many interior design trends, so it is essential to choose the one that will work best for you and will bring you the most happiness.
