Today’s savvy homeowners are looking for the perfect balance of beauty and performance, elegance and efficiency. Leading energy efficient windows deliver, and updated styles capture the clean, crisp, contemporary look you need to bring your design vision to life.
Homeowners need more from their windows, whether they are building from the ground up or installing replacement windows. Performance is at the top of the priority list. After all, feeling a cool breeze on your face is refreshing - unless you’re in your living room, wearing two sweaters.
To prevent costly, and uncomfortable, heating/cooling loss, homeowners are increasingly opting for:
Practicality, functionality, and performance are critical. But you don’t want to compromise. This is your home. While functionality is essential, we see an increasing desire for a clean, sleek aesthetic. To simplify: more glass, less frame.
This enduring trend comes to life in this Franklin Window & Door project. Notice the super-slim lines of the frame and the crystal-clear panes of gorgeous glass.
A slim line in the frame allows more of the outdoors to come in - and for homeowners to thoroughly enjoy the view - without detracting from performance.
That doesn’t mean, however, that the frame doesn’t add to the visual impact. In fact, this is a feature
that more homeowners want: a finish that truly adds the perfect final touch. Black, for instance, is growing in popularity as it provides a crisp, clean look. Obsidian, craftsman bronze, anodized silver, and microflake paint are other sought-after finishes.
More glass, less frame, indeed! And yet, the black finish packs a powerful - though subtle - punch!
Darker finishes are in demand, and it makes sense. With the slimmer profile frames, new or replacement windows accomplish two key goals: they allow the outdoors in with minimal disruption, and at the same time, they can become a gorgeous focal point of a room. At once striking and unobtrusive.
There is also the option to “mix and match” slim lines with more substantial frames, as we see here:
This achieves a smart, contemporary look that perfectly complements the design intent.
Leading window manufacturers like Marvin understand that energy efficient windows should be money- and utility-savers, as well as compelling elements of design.
