If you’re like many Long Island residents, you enjoy watching Property Brothers, Fixer Upper and other home improvement shows to get inspiration – and to find out what is trending in the rehab market. You’ve surely noticed that windows make a dramatic impact on the appearance and functionality in a home.
Naturally, here at Renewal by Andersen of Long Island, we’re always happy to see these shows highlight the positive role that updating windows can have when it comes to increasing home value, boosting energy efficiency and beautifying your spaces. We understand that choosing to invest in replacement windows can be a bit overwhelming, but the process can also be fun since you get to personally design every window. Let’s look at 2017 replacement window trends that are sure to make you smile when you make them part of your home renovation project.
Trend #1: Let There be Light in the Kitchen with Big, Bold Replacement Windows
It’s a proven fact that sunlight is a natural mood elevator. Low profile replacement windows with narrower frames and trim provide more health-giving light than other double-hung or casement window units of the same size. Whether you install a large window over the sink, or replace an existing solid wood door with a sliding patio door in the dining area, find an opportunity to bring in more brilliant sunshine to lift your mood and chase away those occasional blues.
Trend #2: Showcase Your View in the Family Room or Den with a Wall of Glass
Floor to ceiling glass walls bring in abundant natural light and give your room a warm, inviting aura. Plus, if you combine a large picture window – which is the most energy-efficient replacement style – with smaller operable windows for ventilation, you may save more on your heating and air conditioning bills than if you installed only operable windows throughout your home. Ask your Long Island replacement window specialist about style combinations that enhance energy-efficiency without blocking your view from both sides of the glass.
Trend #3: Give Yourself Some Love in the Master Bedroom
Some homeowners overlook opportunities to dramatically transform the master bedroom into a luxurious, rejuvenating sanctuary. Add a versatile bay window, or for a more dramatic look and feel, consider replacing those standard windows with a French-hinged style patio door. The average American adult spends one-third of their life sleeping. Wouldn’t it be great to fall asleep and wake up in a room that exudes peace and tranquility?
Trend #4: Increase Your Home’s Value with a Bonus Feature in the Master Bath
According to Trulia.com research, buyers scrutinize kitchens and baths more than any other rooms in a home. Today, the master bath is synonymous with a home spa. We are seeing more awning and casement replacement windows in bathrooms than styles that have two sash that raise and lower vertically. Go from ordinary to extraordinary with a design trend that adds some visual texture. If you prefer to keep the double-hung, add an equal leg arch or semi-circle window mulled above the window unit. Or, opt for a patterned glass that complements your color scheme, while enhancing privacy without window treatments.
Trend #5: Express Yourself & Capture Your Vision in Every Room in Your Home
Beautiful window designs are showing up everywhere today. With modern, custom-crafted replacement window options, homeowners have more flexibility to turn their vision into reality. All across Long Island, homeowners are making a personal statement with their replacement window design choices. Knowing you can paint or stain wood interiors makes many of our customers smile because decorating options are only limited by your imagination. Knowing you decide which window styles fit your lifestyle best and whether you want to add custom grille patterns and exclusive hardware finishes or recreate the look and feel of your existing windows gives you confidence you’ll be happy with the project once it is finished.
