Top Window Trends to Look for in 2024

While windows are an essential architectural feature, they’re also more than simply entry points for sunlight and air. The windows you choose for your home are a central aesthetic element that can either blend in or make a notable statement.

Today, window trends are shifting from standard, traditional shapes, sizes and colors to a new world of sleek, modern designs. If you’re thinking about upgrading your home’s windows, here are the top 2024 window trends to consider.

Energy Efficiency Innovations

More people are searching for ways to reduce energy consumption in their daily lives. As we strive toward greener living, energy-efficient home improvements are increasingly popular. Among this category of home upgrades, energy-efficient window innovations can make a significant difference by reducing heating and cooling costs.

Innovations in energy-efficient windows now go beyond standard double-pane glass. This year, smart glass technology works with external conditions to maximize sunlight in the winter and minimize it during the summer.

Renewal by Andersen offers High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun Glass With Heatlock® Technology window replacements. These innovative windows can prevent heat from escaping your home through the windows. The HeatLock technology incorporates a double-pane design that offers the energy efficiency of triple-pane windows. These window replacements are a savvy investment for homes in regions that experience cool weather because they can trap heat.

For homes in warmer climates, High-Performance Low-E4 Sun Glass is a great choice. These energy-efficient windows can filter out heat rather than trapping it inside. The window technology incorporates an innovative, subtle tint coating that can reduce light. It has an impressive ability to repel heat, which translates into lower cooling costs for homeowners.

Larger Windows for More Natural Lighting

Large, modern windows can maximize your view outside and flood your living space with stunning natural light. Whether your house has a stunning view of the mountains or you just want to brighten up a few rooms, investing in larger windows can give you a perfect picture of the outdoors.

Expansive picture windows usually boast minimal framing designs to ensure the frame doesn’t distract from your new spectacular view. They also offer seamless integration between modern interiors and exteriors to create an elegant and impactful design statement.


Windows that are made specifically for the space are another new trend this year. Instead of settling for standard window sizes and designs, why not vamp up your home’s interiors and exteriors with customized windows? Homeowners now have the freedom to choose custom windows to uphold a specific aesthetic style that standard, one-size-fits-all windows simply can’t.

Classy arches, triangular shapes and rounded porthole-style windows are trending options, but you can also opt for custom shapes to create statement focal points for your home.

With Renewal by Andersen, you can choose from a range of 49 color combinations, various hardware finishes, stylish grille designs and a selection of modern, slim frames. You can also opt for custom shaping to fit windows to your home’s architectural style and your own design preferences.

Minimalist Frame Designs

Minimalism is no new trend, although this year, minimalist designs have extended to incorporate windows. Sleek, minimalist windows can transform a home’s interior and exterior charm. The trend focuses on window frame designs, with slim or even hidden frames encasing windows, which ensures a seamless connection between windows and walls.

Minimalist windows can enhance a room’s interior by adding a sense of openness, making the space seem larger. Slimline window frame profiles and hidden frames work well with large picture windows and floor-to-ceiling window sizes, although this trend can be applied to standard window sizes, as well.

Whether you choose expansive windows or several tall, thin windows, minimalist frames can add a notable sense of modern charm and classy sophistication to any home.

High-Performance Glass

These days, homeowners want window glass that will perform well, providing strength and resilience and aligning with energy efficiency needs. Renewal by Andersen’s exclusive Fibrex® window material is crafted from recycled Ponderosa pine wood fibers and polyvinylchloride, a synthetic polymer of plastic.

These eco-friendly windows use High Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which is the most energy-efficient glass on the market. This glass can improve energy efficiency by a staggering 70% in the summer by reflecting heat to improve indoor temperatures. In the winter, these windows can boost energy efficiency by up to 49% by keeping heat inside your home.

Beyond energy efficiency, High Performance™ Low-E4® glass also blocks 95% of ultraviolet rays, protecting your furniture and decor from fading.

Different Window Frame Colors

Gone are the days when white window frames dictated the trends. While white frames remain a timeless choice that suits most home styles, changing the color of your window frames can boost your home’s curb appeal significantly.

These days, black windows are a trend. Black window frames offer a timeless elegance that upholds the modern minimalist trend. They offer chic contrast and depth and are the perfect choice for any homeowner who wants to make a bold statement.

If you opt for black, it’s worthwhile to consider sleek, slimline frames. The combination of these elements is a surefire way to amplify your home’s interior and exterior design.

Window Treatments

Beyond window trends, trending window treatments in 2024 include smart, automated window treatments. You can control these treatments remotely through a smart home system. The innovation makes it possible to adjust privacy by changing shading at the press of a button.

These treatments can also be set to change shade coverage automatically according to outdoor conditions. With automated functions, windows can let in more natural light or less, depending on the weather. As smart home technology continues to offer innovations, homeowners can enjoy integrating new technology into many core home features, including their windows.

Other current window treatment trends include layered treatments that combine shades or blinds with sheer curtains and heavy drapes to create depth and texture. Cascade shades are also trending as a versatile and stylish way to dress up windows, while classic shutters remain a trendy yet timeless choice.
