Let The Sunshine In! 3 Window and Door Trends For 2021

2020 had us spending a lot more time at home, which is likely to continue into the New Year.  In 2021 we expect to see a shift in decorative trends to focus on how design can help families enjoy and meet the needs of everyday life while pursuing both work and play at home.

Here are 3 bright window and door trends that we love:


Let There Be Natural Light

Much like Pantone’s “Illuminating” color of the year, 2021’s window and door trends show people wanting more natural light in their homes.

Studies have shown that natural light improves mood and energy levels. As we spend more time at home, people are increasingly looking for environments where natural light fills the space. One way to get the most out of daylight is with multi-slide doors, French doors, and larger windows. Investing in new glass doors and windows will allow homeowners to brighten their environment by making it spacious, reflective, and welcoming.


Bring the Outdoors In

As many gatherings were limited to outdoor spaces in 2020, it is no surprise that indoor/ outdoor living is one of the top trends for 2021. In fact, connecting indoor spaces with the outdoors is expected to be the #1 area for home improvement this year, with many architects and interior designers reporting increased demand for indoor/outdoor living designs. Bi-fold and sliding glass doors are an easy way to take advantage of the enviable Coachella Valley weather and indoor/outdoor culture. Not only do they allow the homeowner to take in beautiful desert views, but they will provide a great return on investment.


Sound-Proof Interior Doors

It looks like working from home, remote learning, and hybrid working is here to stay. If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that proper interior workspaces can reduce stress and increase productivity. A prominent trend is an increased need to ensure that windows and doors block out noise during the day. A sure-fire way to do this is to swap out hollow core doors for solid core interior doors. Solid core doors can help muffle sound effectively, which gives them excellent noise-canceling qualities.
