Author: Contributed by Paula Marquez

With 2024 just around the corner, home design trends are quickly evolving. As change and opportunity present themselves, it’s important that your home reflects your style and priorities.
When looking to personalize your home, windows and doors are the perfect answer as they can entirely set the tone of a house. For this reason, understanding which styles and applications are best suited for your home while sticking to what is up-to-date and chic can be a game changer. To spark some ideas, let’s take a look at some trends that are set to govern the design of windows and doors for the coming year.

1. Modern Windows With Exposed Wood Frames

Exposed natural materials such as wood will without a doubt be on the rise in coming years due to the desire for sustainable design. Placing focus on the beauty and character of materials themselves rather than on the conventionality of added paints supports this idea. A seamless way to bring exposed wood into your home is through windows with exposed wood frames. Utilizing exposed wood along with modern window styles allows for a step back from the “dated” look that these windows have previously fallen into, creating a sought-after, chic look. The colour of the wood itself adds contrast to simple walls. Modernized exposed wood window frames yield an effortless mix of styles, able to add depth and personality to your home.

2. Equilateral Square Window Design

Square windows are set to become increasingly sought after in 2024 due to the continued rise in popularity of minimalism in home design. Their symmetry and geometric nature perfectly complement these modern homes while adding visual appeal. Although these windows are mostly utilized in modern homes, they can be easily styled for a more classic look. Dark grilles and a stylish trim can quickly elevate the look of square windows to fit seamlessly within traditional homes. Not only are these windows able to fit in, but they are also sure to add significant interest to these homes. They are a great option for floor-to-ceiling windows as their broad shape invites light into entire rooms opening them up to the outside world and creating the illusion of a bigger space.

3. Multi-Slide Patio Doors

A sense of connection to the outdoors has become essential in the homes of today. Going into 2024 there is no better way to bridge the gap between indoors and outdoors than large, multi-slide patio doors. These doors offer beautiful unobstructed views while also allowing the warmth of natural light to fill your space. Once opened, Windsor’s Pinnacle Clad multi-slide door panels can be stacked against each other or even tucked away, essentially breaking down a wall between your home and the great outdoors. Their sliding nature and ability to be stored make them unmatched in terms of space efficiency, further contributing to creating wide, open spaces. These doors are also style versatile. Contrary to popular belief, multi-slide patio doors are not only suited for contemporary homes but can just as well be made and styled more traditionally. Multi-slide patio doors are able to create fabulous open, indoor-outdoor spaces suited for any and every home.

4. Above the Kitchen Sink Windows

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where you start your day, where you gather with loved ones, and it can set the tone of your house. For these reasons, kitchen improvement projects will continue their popularity going into 2024 with a focus on creating spaces that reflect liveliness and positivity. A slick way to achieve this is by including broad windows above the kitchen sink. These windows help bring warm natural light into the kitchen and provide lovely views, perfect for when spending long periods of time at the sink. Windows above the kitchen sink are not only aesthetically pleasing but also provide functional advantages. They contribute to added ventilation in kitchens, ridding the space from smoke, odour, and any airborne contaminants. Windsor Pinnacle Clad windows are available in Casement, awning, double-hung and glide-by options, all able to provide ventilation as well as a bright, homey vibe to your kitchen.

5. Black Exterior Windows

Going into 2024 there is major buzz around black windows as they are a bolder alternative to standard white windows. Their clean, elegant look makes this window style timeless, meaning it won’t make your home look dated in a few years. Black exterior windows are also versatile, fitting a variety of home design styles: They can be both classic and modern. Furthermore, the colour black is known to compliment a wide variety of colours and textures making it a good choice for virtually any home with any exterior material. This striking window colour can create contrast between a home and its openings, adding interest while still maintaining a sophisticated appearance. High-end black window finishes also offer advantages in terms of maintenance as they can withstand the elements well. Windsor’s powder-coat paint offers protection from scratches, chipping, and UV fade. If you are looking for a fashionable yet sustainable way to elevate the look of your home, black windows are the way to go.

6. Corner Windows

Circling back to the desire for connection to the outdoors, another trending solution is corner windows. Originally made popular in the 1940s, these windows are making a significant comeback with more innovative applications and designs. Corner windows are direct set and span adjacent walls of buildings meeting at a corner, giving way to beautiful, panoramic views not achievable by the use of any other window type. Windsor 90-degree corner windows are designed with clean, straight lines allowing for optimal, uninterrupted views. This type of window is yet another way to bring immense amounts of natural light into your home as sunlight is able to enter the space from multiple angles. These immersive views and natural illumination work together to create the appearance of broad open spaces even in the smallest of rooms.

7. Oversized Front Doors/ Pivot Doors

With this final trend, 2024 is set to be the year of grand entrances. Oversized front doors have been increasing in popularity recently and will continue to do so in the coming years. These entranceways are incredibly eye-catching and can elevate the curb appeal of a home significantly. One of the most popular types of doors used in this type of application is pivot doors. Pivot doors are unique in that they hinge at their top and bottom, closer to their center rather than at their side edges. These doors are inherently aesthetically interesting but when made on large scales they become even more impactful. They are well suited for this type of use as their hinge system allows for the weight from large, heavy doors to be transferred directly to the ground. Oversized pivot doors are an innovative way to incorporate a functional, purposeful focus piece into homes in the coming year.
