Top Window Trends for 2018

/ / Renewal by Andersen Windows

Looking for ways to combine style and functionality in your home upgrade projects this year? Investing in window replacements is a surefire way to achieve both.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency and sustainability are buzzwords in the home improvement industry. Homeowners are increasingly prioritizing energy efficiency in their home upgrades, both as a means to live more sustainably and to cut down on utility bills. In fact, purchasing products with ENERGY STAR® certification has become a must for many homeowners. At Renewal by Andersen, we are proud to offer ENERGY STAR-certified products that will greatly improve your home’s efficiency and comfort; when outfitted with SmartSun™ glass, our windows can reduce energy bills by as much as 25%.

Black Hues

The neutral shades of black and white will always be in style, but in 2018, you can expect to see a surge in the popularity of black windows. Black-on-black replacement windows are an excellent addition to both contemporary and traditional homes. They can be dramatic or, when combined with white trim, more subtle, creating a modern farmhouse look. Renewal by Andersen features replacement windows in black as well as several other dark and dramatic hues.

Expansive Glass

Last year, big windows that let abundant sunlight into your home were trending, and 2018 will be no different. The growth in outdoor living has homeowners investing in glass walls, lift-and-slide doors, and large groups of windows mulled together. From expansive views to increased daylight, the benefits of broad glass spaces in windows make them highly appealing to homeowners. Renewal by Andersen has a beautiful selection of window styles for homeowners who prefer less frame and more glass; the strength of Renewal by Andersen’s composite framing material, Fibrex®, allows thinner frames to be used.
