Three Trends In Doors And Windows You Need To Know

Doors and windows give a home its character, and that’s why it’s so important that you know where the industry is moving in terms of style and trends when you’re building a custom home or renovating your exterior. Look for trends that are going to have duration, so that they won’t look dated in just a few years. And while you’re probably going to want to focus on a new style and look, don’t neglect performance.


Greenery - Doors and Window Frames


The 2017 Pantone color of the year, Greenery, is an earthy, natural, yellow-tinted green reminiscent of the undersides of leaves in the peak of summer. It’s a gentle color that causes people to stop and take a deep, relaxing breath, and it will look great on houses that have lush, full-grown lawns with mature trees and well-maintained grass. Unlike past Pantone color of the year choices, Greenery is timeless, and it will look great for years to come on the front of your home. If you buy your door from us at Golden Windows, we offer a wide range of colors, including Leaf Green, Tavern Green, Amazon Green, not to mention plenty of options from other sides of the color palette.

Architectural Windows


When it comes to new homes, especially custom homes in cities across Southern Ontario, big architectural windows are in huge demand. They open up your home to the outdoors, which is why they’re so popular in country homes, but they’re also popular in the city as well. Architectural windows have been enjoying greater use thanks to their major role in contemporary design. Many contemporary homes are all about bringing in greater amounts of natural light and letting the outdoors feel as though it’s in your living room. Architectural windows are great both in city homes and at the cottage where they can give you an incredible view of the lake, framed by the trees. In the city, architectural windows can be used for dramatic effect on the street. They give a house clean lines and a mirror-like reflectivity that expresses an ultra-modern sensibility.


Energy Efficiency


Of course, energy efficiency and architectural windows go hand in hand – supplying doors and windows in Kitchener, London, and Kanata, we work with homebuilders and owners who don’t want to sacrifice the view but don’t want to break the bank with utility bills either.
