These 2022 window trends will guide window design ideas both inside and outside your home.

A variety of window trends are emerging for 2022 that can help you blend window design ideas seamlessly into your home décor. Whether you’re looking for ideas for curb appeal or window design options to accent your interior spaces, here are some great options to get your design wheels turning.  

Window trends and ideas for curb appeal
Window Trend Ideas

Dark Frames & Natural Colors

Black or dark-toned window frames are a window design trend continuing to gain popularity. Able to transcend architectural styles, versatile black window frames can add depth that complements everything from suburban colonial to urban loft home designs. Think black is too stark for your home? Sherwin-Williams’ 2021 Color of the Year, Urbane Bronze, is a great dark gray-brown alternative to make ideas for curb appeal come to life. Did you know you can select any Sherwin-Williams color for your Performax54 windows when you work with Improveit? From black to bronze to any color of the rainbow, custom-color windows can set your home apart! 

Energy-efficient windows

While black window frames make a design statement, they’re not for everyone. Traditional wood tones for interior window finishes are also getting attention, and give a warmer feeling inside your home, particularly if you have wood trim and casings around your windows.  

Energy Efficiency

Energy-efficient windows continues to be at the forefront of window trends as homeowners continue to look for ways to reduce their carbon footprints and save money.  

Look for windows with smart glass that works with the sun, passively heating your home by allowing low-angle winter sunlight into your home, while reflecting it away from the house in the summer. This allows you to rely less on your heating and cooling systems throughout the year, saving energy and money! Insulated window frames and sashes, as well as non-metal spacers also play important roles in a window’s energy-efficiency, reducing the amount of heat that enters or escapes your home through the window. When considering window replacement to improve your home’s energy efficiency, make sure choose a company that offers an air-tight installation process, including spray foam around the rough opening to help eliminate drafts. 

More Natural Light

Allowing more natural light into the home is a trend many homeowners are taking advantage of. Houzz recently reported that lack of natural light was among homeowners’ top pet peeves for bathroom design in particular. Nearly a third of surveyed homeowners reported insufficient lighting in the bathroom, and 11% said they had no natural light at all.  

Architectural Windows Window Design ideas for curb appeal

Adding a window is an excellent option for increasing your home’s natural light, be it in a bathroom or any room of your home. Architectural and picture windows allow for more light to enter a space, while operable windows, including double-hung, casement, slider, and awning windows also provide ventilation in addition to daylighting

Use these guidelines to understand each window style and where they work best in your home.

Custom Bay Window

Large Format Windows

A desire for more daylight leads into our next noticeable window trend: large-format windows. Whether you’re dreaming of a wall of windows or just maximizing the daylighting and ventilation opportunities of your home’s current window configuration, larger-scale windows can help. Depending on the window company you work with, and the construction of your home, enlarging existing window openings is possible. You can also install windows side-by-side, or stack them to achieve the look of a larger window (think of adding an awning or architectural window on top of a large casement). 

All windows have minimum and maximum size constraints, and large bay and bow windows have their own design features and associated installation requirements. Be sure to discuss these considerations with your window company so you can take advantage of window trends while planning your project. Improveit design consultants are ready to answer any questions you may have! 

Bold Patterns

So how do you design around these window trends? Window Fashion Vision magazine identified a number of trends around window coverings that can enhance your window selections and your interior décor. Look for vivid colors like warm yellows, ocean-inspired hues, and jewel tones to make an appearance in window coverings, along with bold patterns. These ideas are prompted by pandemic fatigue with more homeowners looking for ways to inject style and color into their homes.

New window design ideas can make a big impact on the look and feel of your home. Schedule a free consultation with an Improveit design consultant to learn how to make these window trends part of your home in 2022!

“ImproveIt has been wonderful. Work is high grade, and if anything needs attention, they are back as many times as it takes. This was the second project for me, and I am having the second bathroom project. Their materials are top grade and very easy to maintain. The bay window is beautiful! My disabled daughter has 4 cats and this new window is their giant movie screen. These improvements will definitely increase the value of your home!”
