Choosing doors and windows an have a huge impact on the look and feel of your home – not to mention how well it connects to your outside space. If you’re building or renovating and searching for ideas, look no further. Here are 11 statement-making doors and windows to consider.
1. Make It A Focal Point
Windows don’t need to play second fiddle to the other decorative elements in a room. If you’ve got a killer view, it pays to take them as large as the space (and your budget and planning regulations) will allow. Wrapping an oversize window around the corner of a room, makes it the undeniable star of the space.
2. Add Texture
Fluted or reeded glass, with its delightful, ripple-effect surface, is a genius choice for internal doors. Not only does it add a touch of old-world charm to a space, but it allows you to close off a room without sacrificing light.
3. Soften With Curves
Curved walls, ceilings, furniture – there’s no denying that round, voluptuous lines are back with a bang in 2020. A rounded window adds softness to a room and allows you to follow a curvaceous roofline.
4. Add Angles
Forget boring vertical surfaces – highlight an interesting wall or ceiling shape with oversize, angled windows. Opting for bold black frames emphasises the dramatic shape of the windows, while adding lourves allows you to catch the breeze on a hot day.
5. Embrace Modern Country
A sliding barn door is a smart choice if you want a style that won’t protrude into the room when it’s open. If you’re not a fan of the farmhouse look, don’t despair – the latest barn doors boast simple styling and pared-pack lines that make them work in many contemporary home settings.
6. Natural Appeal
Details matter; if you’re building or renovating, don’t miss the opportunity to add those beautiful touches of character to your home that will elevate it to something truly special. Deep window frames lined in timber are a great way to add warmth to the home and reference its location.
7. Follow The Shape Of The Room
Emphasise a unique wall shape by echoing it with a curved window. Keeping the framing simple adds a chic, contemporary aesthetic.
8. The Beauty Of Bi-folds
Bi-folds aren’t just for doors; use them on windows and you’ll boost ventilation while creating a seamless connection between indoors and out. It’s worth noting that bi-fold windows (like doors) will protrude externally when open, so it’s best to use them in areas overlooking an unused space rather than in an entertaining area where they might get in the way.
9. Go Big
Frame a beautiful outlook with a supersize black-framed window and it suddenly resembles a work of art. Keep the rest of the decor simple to keep the focus where you want it.
10. Keep It Simple
If you’re more concerned with boosting natural light than privacy, opt for a glass front door. Your hallway will be bathed in light, making for a bright and welcoming feel, and you’ll never have to guess who’s at the front door again.
