In 2015, contemporary architectural designs are a popular choice for homeowners looking to emphasize an open floor plan with large, expansive windows, natural lighting, and flexibility. There are many design choices within a contemporary style. One of the most well-known and trending window design choices residents elect to style their home with is modern windows.

Below, we outline a few of 2015’s most popular contemporary window design trends, including modern window design!

Popular Contemporary Window Designs

Modern Style Windows

One of the most significant differentiators separating modern windows from traditional windows are their simple, angular shapes. Modern windows often include design aspects such as large panes of glass, simple lines, an alignment of windows and doors for a clean look, and free of grilles.

Modern windows are a great solution for homeowners looking to allow a lot of natural lighting into their home and who want an open design plan. Modern windows give homeowners flexibility in their interior design plans and are the perfect way to show off your new windows!

Incorporate Contemporary Windows into Your Interior Design

Contemporary windows aren’t only for your neighbors and passerby’s to look at, they’re for you too! One way to maximize your contemporary windows are to integrate them into your interior design. To do this, some options include:

  • Incorporate patio doors into your modern setting to provide a modern, yet easily accessible entryway to a balcony or outdoor area.
  • Leave your contemporary windows undressed (without curtains or draperies) to show off a sleek, modern design.
  • Use narrow blinds or mesh shades to keep some sunlight out when desired, but still tie in a modern look with a neutral color or hard-to-notice print.
  • Install “window walls.” A flexible, beautiful alternative in modern architectural design, window walls are a great way to show off beautiful landscaping or breathtaking views without breaking up your contemporary interior design.
