As we approach 2024, it’s time to look ahead and see what a new year will bring regarding window and door trends.
The thing about window and door trends is that they come and go. Does that mean you shouldn’t embrace them? Not at all
The glazing industry is constantly evolving and adapting to new trends and technologies. Many exciting developments are on the horizon, from innovative glass to soundproof windows. Whether planning a complete home renovation or a new build, discover the window and door trends that will influence how we live, relax, and entertain in 2024.
Many of the latest trends follow the window and door trends of 2023, where we strive to uphold minimalism and longevity to create an energy-efficient house full of light and transparency. It is, therefore, no surprise that floor-to-ceiling windows are an architectural feature that inspires all homes.
Another glazing trend expected to explode in 2024 is large sliding doors with glazing bars, allowing for large openings and creating a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living spaces. First growing in popularity in urban areas, the industrial look has been a trend in interior design for over a decade, making a surprising comeback within sliding doors.
Minimalist, sleek window and door designs with thin frames are all the rage. Pairing natural light with neutral colours provides a modern and contemporary aesthetic that matches minimalist heaven. In the minimalist interior, the window view becomes an architectural feature that adds wow to any room.
Integration of biophilic design principles, incorporating natural elements into windows and doors to enhance the connection with nature, create a peaceful oasis as a respite for your well-being
One of the most significant trends in the window and door industry is the rise of innovative glass. This includes smart glass, self-cleaning glass, and energy-efficient glass. These types of glass enhance the aesthetic appeal of windows and doors and offer practical benefits.
Switchable glass, also known as smart glass, also known as can change its transparency with the touch of a button. This technology is already being used in commercial buildings but is expected to become more prevalent in residential properties by 2024. Self-cleaning glass, is designed with a special coating to repel dirt and water, will also become more popular as homeowners seek low-maintenance solutions. And with energy efficiency becoming a top priority for many, energy-efficient glass will continue to be in high demand.
Noise pollution is a common problem for homeowners. That’s why soundproof windows are becoming increasingly popular and will continue to be a top trend in 2024. These acoustic windows are designed to reduce external noise levels inside your home. You are making your home a peaceful and quiet sanctuary. Acoustic glazing is a sought after option for homeowners living near motorways, airports and in cities and subject to noise pollution.
Soundproof windows use innovative materials and technologies to block out noise, such as acoustic laminated glass and specialised seals. They can significantly reduce noise pollution, making them a must-have for any homeowner looking for a more peaceful living environment.
Acoustic glass is manufactured to provide optimum protection against noise intrusion.
Is there one trend that stands out among the rest? Energy efficiency is a top priority for many homeowners. With a growing concern for the environment and rising energy costs, energy-efficient and sustainable windows and doors will continue to be a significant trend in 2024.
Energy-efficient windows and doors help to reduce heat loss, making them more energy-efficient and cost-effective. They can also help decrease your carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.
Many of our glazing systems surpass the building regulations requirements of Part L and Part F. If you want to enhance the thermal performance, triple glazing is a good option.
There has been a growing trend for the use of natural materials in home design in recent years, which will continue in 2024. Wooden windows and doors are on the rise due to their timeless appeal and sustainability. Wood is a renewable resource, maintaining ethical commitments to sustainability and making it an eco-friendly choice for homeowners, adding a touch of natural beauty to a home and offering durability and longevity.
With the increased demand for smart home technology, security features for windows and doors are becoming more advanced. In 2024, we expect to see an increase in biometric locks, which use fingerprints or facial recognition to unlock doors. This technology offers effective security and convenience for homeowners.
Other security features that will continue to be popular in 2024 include reinforced frames, shatter-resistant glass, and multi-point locking systems. These features provide homeowners peace of mind and act as a deterrent for potential intruders.
As mentioned earlier, smart home technology is becoming increasingly popular, which will continue in 2024. We expect to see more technology integration in windows and doors, making them more convenient and efficient for homeowners.
For example, smart windows can be scheduled to open and close at specific times, allowing for natural ventilation and decreasing the need for air conditioning.
Homeowners can unlock and lock their doors from anywhere with the use of Smart locks.
These technological advancements add convenience and contribute to energy efficiency and security.
In recent years, there has been a shift towards using dark colours in window and door design, which will continue in 2024. Homeowners are becoming more daring with their window and door choices, opting for dark colours to add personality to their homes.
