If you’re going to invest in new windows in Cincinnati, you want to be sure that they hit the mark so that they really do deliver optimized performance and improved curb appeal. That’s why we’re taking a look at five replacement window trends to keep an eye on while planning your remodel this year.
The industrial look is one of sparse details, along with both thick window frames and simple lines. In fact, many industrial and modern homes feature enormous picture windows with black frames that form a perfect grid. This look is ultra clean, and it brings in a ton of extra light, while you still enjoy the energy savings of insulated panes.
Now that more homes feature additional outdoor living space in the form of outdoor kitchens or huge decks, Cincinnati homeowners are living it up with pass-through windows. Serve your guests directly from your kitchen without being left out of the conversation. This also makes cleanup easy.
Arches were a marvel of engineering in their own time, but these days we prefer sharp corners. We expect to see fewer decorative arches in favor of rectangular headers and design elements. However, bow windows will probably stick around for a while longer.
Better Building Materials
Energy efficiency has been the name of the game for many years, but now consumers have come to expect a whole new level of eco-friendliness. As a result, many of the new composite and vinyl windows will be made from recycled materials rather than raw. This is great news all around, and it could lead to falling prices as more of these materials are reclaimed in the future.
More Glass Treatments
Low-E window treatments have also taken off in the last two decades, but modern window manufacturers are creating variants of Low-E film that includes shading visible sunlight, reducing UV and more. There are also cold-weather options that are perfect for northern residents. Make sure that you are asking your window guide about all the different types of Low-E that are now available.
