Natural, Bright Light
Take down those valences and heavy curtains and let your windows speak for themselves—minimal window treatment that allows for bright, natural light can easily transform homes to look more spacious, warm, and inviting. If you’re looking to expand the natural light that comes into your home, consider bay, bow, and transom windows.

Weather Shield offers bay windows, bow windows, and transom windows made in a variety of energy efficient materials that can increase the amount of light coming into your home and improve the openness of your living, bedroom, or kitchen space.
While this trend seems to have topped the charts year after year for a variety of home products and fixtures, energy efficiency is still at the top of mind for many homeowners. New, replacement windows are even more energy efficient than windows made five to 10 years ago. A window’s energy efficiency is measured in its U-value (which is its resistance to heat flow). The main factors of a windows energy efficiency are the material it’s made out of (fiberglass windows top the charts) and the manufacturer (top-end manufacturers strive to constantly push the limits and increase energy efficiency). The more energy efficiency your windows are, the less you’ll be wasting on energy loss (for example, from escaping heat during the winter).
Statement Décor & Design
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala—a deep burgundy. While this trend won’t necessary impact the windows in your home, you can incorporate it into the design of your room, highlighting Marsala toned vases, pillows, paintings, and other accents where the light from your windows hits them best.
If you want to dedicate you home’s aesthetics to Marsala, you can have your windows painted a similar color. For example, fiberglass windows from Weather Shield come in a variety of finishes, including Brick Red, Boysenberry, Sundried Tomato, Firebrick, and more!
