It’s likely you never give any thought to window colours and styles, but here in 2022 this is a topic that more and more of us need to consider.
When renovating your home and installing new windows there is a huge array of colours and styles to choose from.
In this article, we’ll look at the different and most popular window choices, their benefits and how you can decide on the right window colours and styles for your home.
The Top Window Colours and Styles of 2022
We all know that putting in new windows will increase the value of your home.
The upkeep of our homes is incredibly important too, and if you’re planning on selling your home in the near future, it’s imperative you maintain the exterior of your home.
Why is the colour of your windows important?
Let’s consider how we ensure our home looks attractive to prospective buyers. The exterior design and colour of our home is important when choosing windows and getting this right means creating the right first impressions to everyone who visits.
Ensuring that the exterior, doors, window, paint and brick or stonework maintain a complementary look that feels smart and contemporary will really help elevate your home.
But how do you go about choosing the right window colour or style?
Don’t worry, it’s not as difficult as you think and there is a lot of help on hand.
We are going to consider two types of windows specifically in this piece:
- Flush Sash Windows
In terms of colour options, the contemporary shades of grey, like anthracite or slate, are some of the most commonly requested at this time. Many of us understand the calming, modern look of grey mostly in our interiors, but this popular shade is making its way into our exterior design too.
Installing a dark grey flush sash window gives a traditional look a distinctly modern feel – and can make your home stand out. We all love to make a style statement at some point don’t we.
2. Vertical Sliding Windows
Vertical sliding windows are similar to sash windows but, more typically are installed in Georgian or Victorian properties. They add elegance and a heritage appearance to any home.
In terms of style, they offer a traditional slant but can look fresh and add character to a home that may lack these period features.
Available in a variety of materials, from a wood effect uPVC to timber, and a choice of over 150 different colours, you’re able to create a window which appeals to your taste.
If you want to veer away from grey window frames why not consider a stylish green or even red – impact through your window frame colours has never really been easier.
Benefits of New Windows
Replacing our windows can seem like quite a daunting decision to make.
Even if we enjoy perusing the latest window colours we might still procrastinate over the installation.
There are, however, huge benefits to installing new windows.
Security – new windows offer increased security and are tested to the highest standards. Coupled with new bolts and locks, you’re giving you and your family increased peace of mind.
Environmental – new windows give you draught proof designs and high performance double glazing, saving on your heating bills and reducing your home’s carbon footprint. Also, the materials used are top rated and achieve A+ energy ratings.
Added to these are the fresh, well-maintained look of your home and the increase in value, and suddenly we start to realise that choosing new windows is a sound investment.
