Window Trends in Maryland, Virginia & Washington, DC

From sitting around bonfires to picking apples to even looking out your window at all the colorful leaves, fall is a season of change and festivities. With that said, you could want to change your current window treatments and consider window replacement.

If you’re in the Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC area, learn about the latest window trends and how Quality Window & Door can help with window replacement in Columbia, Clarksville, Ellicott City and other nearby cities in the metropolitan region.

Organic Materials: One of the Most Eco-friendly Window Trends

You’ll notice this fall heavy curtains and drapes are out and organic materials are in! Materials like wood are making a comeback for both the structure of the window and its decorative hardware. Homeowners are opting for lighter and more natural materials like bamboo, matchstick, or organic cotton to serve as window treatments and provide extra shading. This European-inspired trend is due, in part, to the passivhaus energy trends currently sweeping Germany, Austria, Sweden and a host of other European nations.

What’s great about this window trend is you can incorporate it in your house in a variety of ways. Whether you’re considering window replacement and eco-friendly window installation or you’re looking to simply change the window treatments, greener materials in Maryland are here to stay!

Simplicity: One of the Most European Window Trends

There’s no doubt European window trends emphasizing simplicity are slowly gaining momentum in the United States. Americans are opting for window structures, styles, and treatments that are both visually appealing, but also functional. As a result, simplicity is another window trend this season. Gone are the days of grandiose and over-the-top window treatments. Instead, homeowners are opting for more simple lines, structures, materials, and treatments for their window. For instance, the European trend of industrialism—a trend that’s all about minimalism—features clean lines and few ornate decorations.

Quality Window & Door carries a variety of windows that cater to this style. Whether you prefer wood, vinyl, or aluminum, we can help you pick windows that are simplistic yet elegant. Remember—less is more! Let Quality Window & Door guide you in your decisions with the latest window trends in Maryland.
