Trends are the variable of cultures, they come and go, some more frequently than others. However, some trends stand the test of time, and are so effective that they remain popular for generations. When it comes to windows and doors, aluminium is one of those materials that has been a favourite among builders, architects and end-users alike, for years.
Here are some of the door and window design trends that have inspired the creation of beautiful spaces.
Coloured windows and doors
While pristine whites or elegant black framed windows and doors remain highly popular choices, more and more homeowners are looking to shake things up a little with the use of coloured windows and doors to suit their unique design preferences. Aluminium is a perfect canvas for this purpose, since with this material, you can get high quality finishes, including polyester powder coating, anodizing finish in both solid and metallic colours. This process also provides outstanding resistance to harsh environmental conditions. You can also choose to have one colour on the inside and another on the outside of the frame. Brands that utilize high-end modern technology are able to offer more than a hundred colours by means of powder coating, the use of wood finishes, and anodizing. This is only possible with aluminium doors and windows.
New window designs and styles
Casement and sliding windows rule the roost when it comes to window designs and styles, however, with the introduction of newer styles, manufacturers are enabling builders, architects and homeowners to stretch their imaginations and create visually stunning spaces with variants like tilt & turn and villa windows. These new styles also bring a whole range of functional benefits to the table, apart from just looking great.
With the introduction of stronger, more robust profiles, we are now able to install larger windows and doors, which allow for much better views of the plush outdoors. Large aluminium window and door profiles also improve the indoor ventilation of a space, and also permit more natural light to enter. These factors, especially when combined with walls of a lighter colour, combine to enhance the soothing aesthetic of a space. Nowadays, people are opting for windows and doors with less frame, more glass and slim sightlines. Sliding glass doors are also especially popular as they provide the widest opening and save on indoor space.
As the world moves towards making more conscious choices in context of what is better for the environment, aluminium doors and windows stand out as an ideal choice because they are 100% recyclable. This single factor ends up saving 95% of the energy required to produce new aluminium from raw materials all over again. Aluminium is a material that can be recycled forever, without losing any of its amazing qualities.
