5 Window Trends in 2022

5 Window Trends in 2022


People have been spending a lot more time at home, making housing updates more prominent than ever. Window replacement is a high-impact investment that packs a lot of punch. Replacement windows are more than just a pretty face; new technology makes today's windows more beneficial than ever for homeowners.

If you're looking for updated, energy-efficient, and low-maintenance options but aren't sure where to start, here are the top window trends of 2022 to consider:

1. Bay Windows

There are many ways bay windows can add instant beauty to your home by accenting a room or acting as a centerpiece. A bay window comprises three windows extending beyond your exterior wall. A picture window in the middle is flanked on both sides by another type of window, typically a casement or double-hung window. The two side windows are angled, creating a flat surface space. This space can be used for anything from a display area to a fun window seat. 

2. Bow Windows

Similar to the bay window is the bow window design. The bow window creates a rounded shape using several of the same styles of windows in a row to create a subtle curve. As its name implies, the result is a window with a bowed appearance. The bow window lets in a lot of light and creates a spectacular view. The Pella Windows Architect Series is an attractive option with nearly limitless design options, including mahogany, Douglas fir, or pine interiors. 

3. Casement Windows

If you like the look of a picture window with a large, single pane of glass, but you want the benefit of being able to open the window, then casement windows are a perfect option. A casement window opens like a door. It has hinges on one side and a handle that you can crank to open the window toward the exterior. These windows are in one piece like a picture window, which makes for a beautiful, clear view outside with the bonus of a breeze. The Pella casement windows are available in wood, fiberglass, and easy-to-care-for vinyl. 

4. Double-Hung Windows

double-hung window vertically slides up and down. These windows are made of two separate pieces called sashes. The bottom sash of the window slides up while the top part can slide down, creating ventilation in two spots. This is different from traditional single-hung windows, where the top sash stays in place while only the bottom sash can be raised. Both double-hung window sashes also tilt inward to make cleaning a breeze. The double-hung windows by Pella are available in wood, fiberglass, and vinyl.

5. Black Windows

Windows of any style with black frames can really make your house pop. The popularity of this look started with the industrial warehouse trend but has branched out into every type of home, from farmhouse to modern. The black-framed windows can create a dramatic effect, especially when paired with a light exterior color or white interior walls. Black, after all, goes with everything. You can tie together the look even more by using black light fixtures or hardware. 

Window replacement is a wise investment no matter which updated design you choose. Whether you have a Mid-Century Modern, Tudor, Craftsman, Victorian, or any other style of house, one or more of these on-trend options will work beautifully for you and your home. There are so many customizable options, from colors to features to materials. 

To make choosing an option even more fun, you can customize any window to your style by adding a grid. Once used to hold together small glass panes, they're just decorative these days. There are numerous styles to pick from to get the perfect look for your home.

No matter your budget or style preferences, there is something perfectly suited for your home.
