This means that whatever the weather, homeowners can enjoy plenty of natural light in their homes. What’s more, window designs without any grids are very popular as they allow for unimpeded viewing.

Clean lines are a popular choice for homeowners around the country because they are a great way to achieve a modern design, without compromising on your choice of décor. Casement windows are a great option when it comes to clean lines and letting in plenty of light in. For homeowners wanting a beautifully clean finish with lovely straight lines and plenty of surface space to enjoy the view, opting for casement windows is a fantastic choice.
Coloured Windows and Doors
This trend began sneaking into home improvements last year, but it has made a real impact in 2018. Coloured windows and doors are more popular than ever before and really help your home stand out from others on the street – a much more exciting choice than plain white. What’s more, rumour has is that Ultra Violet is the ‘Colour of the Year’ for 2018. So, if you fancy staying on-trend with your colour choices, this might be the option for you.
2018 is the year of environmentally-friendly practices. It is becoming increasingly popular and trendy to have energy-efficient windows. You can save a lot of money with energy-efficient windows by ensuring all that warm air coming from your radiators isn’t seeping out while the cold air sneaks in. Double glazing keeps your home at a comfortable temperature all year round, meaning you’re not losing money on your heating bills and your home works far more efficiently – saving you money and helping care for the environment.
