Have you ever heard of the old adage, “If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade”? Windows of opportunity are short-lived, like summers here in Maryland and the Northern Virginia area!
The summertime is the best time to complete home renovation projects like an extensive remodel or new window installation.
If you’re considering a home renovation, don’t let your window of opportunity pass and allow these projects to fall by the wayside! Zen Windows DC experts picked some of the most on-trend summer ideas for windows to inspire your choices.
If you want to open up a room, both bow and bay windows add extra space and dimension to your home. Bow and bay windows can also increase your home’s market value, improve natural light, increase ventilation, and provide sizable views of natural surroundings.
Many DC, Maryland, and Virginia homeowners are looking for ways to save on their energy bills. Picture windows are energy-efficient windows that provide ample natural light and lower energy bills by sealing in cool air. Our popular double-hung windows allow for better overall air circulation and help prevent drafts.
Ventilation is critical in keeping your home’s indoor air quality fresh and temperatures comfortable for you and your family. Casement windows are among the most popular window choices if you’re looking to maximize airflow. They can open as wide as their frame size will allow them to. Slider windows also allow for increased airflow because their design supports larger panels like casement windows.
Natural light is in for 2022 and is a benefit of windows that will never go out of style. As we mentioned, bow windows, bay windows, and picture windows are great window options for letting in the natural sunlight. Expansive windows that reach from the floor to the ceiling, commonly referred to as walls of windows, are trending this year as they allow the outdoors to become part of the home décor and provide the perfect amount of light to enjoy beautiful views. They also serve as the ideal upgrade to a modern makeover to those outdated interiors.
Another latest trend is bringing in bold colors such as black and other neutral-colored frames and finishes because they add sleek sophistication to your home. Black window frames serve a dual purpose as they are highly versatile and offer a beautiful window design that adds a modern touch to any home. Additionally, black adds a sense of cleanliness and simplicity that blends well with both interior and exterior décor.
Your living space is always a personal expression of your interests, style, and creativity. This list of top window trends for the summer can help you enjoy your property now and for years to come.
