Is it time to upgrade your home's windows? Outdated and underperforming windows may be costing you money and ruining the appearance of your beloved home. There are many different window styles available on the market today, and the Jewel Windows experts are here to share all the latest style trends.
The cosy cottage aesthetic has been popular for a few years now, and the rustic look is still on trend in 2023. If you are a fan of the ‘cottagecore’ trend, you will want to invest in modern windows with a timber-like appearance.
The quintessentially cute cottage appearance often includes wooden window frames and doors, but the reality of timber profiles can be a little less appealing. Old timber window frames are often ill equipped to deal with the poor British weather and can succumb to rot, damp and other weather damage over time.
If you want the rustic charm associated with timber windows, we recommend installing uPVC frames finished with woodgrain foils. There are many timber-replica windows available on the market today that have an authentic appearance while also benefiting from the durability, energy efficiency and security offered by modern uPVC.
If you want windows with a classic look but ‘cottagecore’ is not your thing, contemporary sash windows are also on trend this winter. Originating way back in the Georgian era, sliding sash windows ooze character and bring personality to properties of all ages.
Modern sash windows are the perfect solution for homeowners seeking traditional aesthetics and reliable performance. uPVC sliding sash windows are a popular choice for period properties as they are the ideal way to replace outdated timber frames without losing the beautiful, timeless appearance.
Contemporary sash windows can be customised to suit every property, and astragal bars, dummy sashes, run-through horns, and other decorative features can be added for the ultimate vintage design.
Long Lasting Finish
While sash windows seem to never go out of fashion, old uPVC frames are falling out of favour with modern homeowners. Outdated uPVC window frames can lose their shiny appearance over time and become dull and faded due to weather exposure. Many modern homeowners are choosing to update their homes with contemporary uPVC frames.
Manufacturing has come a long way in recent decades, and modern uPVC is designed to offer exceptional long term performance. This low maintenance and durable material will continue to look its best for many years to come while also offering impressive overall performance.
Modern uPVC is easy to colour, and a popular window style trend this year is the ‘dark academia’ aesthetic. To create this moody appearance, choose uPVC frames coloured with black, grey, deep emerald or dark maroon shades.
Sleek & Stylish
While contemporary uPVC has many benefits and continues to be a popular choice for homeowners, we are seeing a rise in aluminium window installations this year. Aluminium is one of the strongest materials used in construction today and can easily be shaped to create window frames in all different shapes and sizes.
If you are building or renovating a modern home with a sleek, futuristic appearance in mind, the aluminium trend may be the perfect solution for your window needs. Due to its impressive strength, aluminium can support large panes of glazing with only slim frames in the structure. The lightweight and thin frames are deceptively strong and will easily hold expansive panes of double or triple glazing in place.
With slim sightlines and a sleek finish, aluminium windows are growing in popularity and are a great way to encourage more light into your home this winter.
Money Saving Windows
Finally, a window style trend that we predict will continue to grow as the temperatures start to drop is energy efficient frames. Properties lose a large percentage of heat through their windows and doors, and outdated glazing can cause an unwanted hike in heating bills. Here in the UK, energy costs are high and more and more homeowners are looking for ways to save money.
Here at Jewel, we install energy efficient uPVC and aluminium windows. Our cutting edge designs effectively keep cold draughts outside, reduce heat loss and provide effective heat regulation throughout every season. With everything from double glazed casement windows to multi-function Tilt & Turn frames, all homeowners can find an energy efficient window style to suit their home and thermal performance needs.
Saving money and keeping warm during the winter is a trend that will never go out of style!
