The windows of your home can give you a view of the outside world. Some windows are stunning and eye-catching. Others are practical and get the job done right. And, still, other windows have both functionality and appeal.

So whether you are looking to remodel your home, simply replace your windows, or just looking for ideas – here’s a list of the top 5 window trends for 2021.


1. Black-Framed Windows

Black-framed windows look great with any style of home and they bring a bold, distinct, classy look. This trend showed up from the 19th-century warehouses and factories –  and shows no sign of slowing down.


2. Laminated Glass Windows 

Laminated glass windows are more commonly referred to as impact windows. They allow those who live in hurricane-prone areas to protect their home while avoiding the need for shutters. But they are also a great option for those who live in noisy areas. After all, when you are home, you shouldn’t have to worry about hearing the outside world.


3. Natural Wood – Without the Wood

The beauty of new windows framed in natural wood is beautiful and earthy, but it comes with downfalls. To keep wood looking great, it requires maintenance since they are so vulnerable to rotting and warping.

This new trend allows you to have the look of wood without all the hassle that comes with it. Manufacturers of vinyl windows have created windows with the real look of wood. Perhaps the best part is that they come in different finishes, too, such as cherry, oak, and maple. Combining the wood look with the vinyl functionality gives reason for this trend to hang around a while.


4. Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors are a great option for those who spend a lot of time indoors or who have a relatively small space. The wide glass doors slide effortlessly back and forth allowing you to move between the inside and out. And not only do they give you a magnificent view from inside, but they also allow sunlight in to brighten up the space.


5. Floor-to-Ceiling Windows

Bow and bay windows are incredibly big and easily become focal points in the home. But like the sliding glass doors, these windows make the outdoors the centerpiece of the room. They let in light and make smaller spaces look larger and more lively.
