Top Window Trends for Summer
Replacement windows not only enhance your home’s curb appeal but also provide a wonderful opportunity for an upgrade that reflects your personality, taste, and lifestyle.
Ohio’s summers are famous for their heat and humidity, so choosing the best replacement windows to keep your home comfortably cool while providing energy-efficient savings is a must. Whether you prefer vinyl, fiberglass, or wood windows, some styles are better than others for maximizing natural sunlight, adding an attractive focal point, or improving your home’s airflow.
Here’s what’s trending this year in warm-weather window design.
For Sun Lovers
A little sunshine every day can improve your mood and make everything just a little brighter. Welcome the sun into your home with some beautiful new energy-efficient picture or fixed glass windows. Floor-to-ceiling picture or fixed glass windows connect you with the outdoors by letting lots of natural light stream in. It’s a dramatic look that’s also extremely versatile.
- Picture windows perfectly frame the outdoor landscape and can be paired with overhead transoms or awnings to allow for ventilation. You can get the same effect with a wall of double-hung or single-hung windows.
- A wall of fixed glass windows is a dramatic look that provides stunning views and a one-of-a-kind look for your home. They’re a terrific choice for living rooms, home offices, and master suites.
At One With Nature
Looking for a window style that lets you enjoy summer’s extra daylight while adding practical value to your home? Bow windows fit the bill. Featuring three or more windows in a curved arc, bows have the added benefit of giving whatever room they’re in a more spacious feel. When everyone escapes into the air-conditioning during the hot summer months, the extra ledge space can be used as a comfortable seating area so people can still enjoy the outdoor view.
Let in the Fresh Air
With heat and humidity come summer storms. If rain puts a damper on your plans, choose double-hung windows with tiltable frames. They make it easy to increase your home’s airflow while simultaneously protecting everyone from the rain.
When choosing one or more styles of replacement windows, consider the:
- Material. We offer wood, fiberglass, and vinyl windows, all of which provide multiple benefits, including energy-efficiency properties offering solar heat gain solutions.
- Frame color or wood grain. Today, the sky’s the limit when it comes to window frame colors. Neutral colors remain popular, as do gorgeous wood grains like mahogany. Black window frames remain on-trend this year, and designers expect them to be a favorite for the foreseeable future.
