Modern Front Door Trends

Posted on 12.01.2024

The world of window and door design is evolving, offering exciting prospects for those planning home renovations or new builds. At Bowalker Doors, we recognise the importance of staying ahead of trends to bring you innovative solutions. Here are some of our favourite front door trends, and popular window and door options, that will shape the way we live, relax, and entertain in 2024.

  1. Sliding doors with astragal bars: The industrial heritage look

Large sliding doors with aluminium astragal bars are set to make a comeback this year, providing expansive openings that seamlessly connect indoor and outdoor living spaces. Originating in urban areas, the industrial look is a decade-long interior design trend, now giving a new edge to sliding doors.

  1. Minimalist design: Less frame, better views

Expanding the minimalist trend of 2023, thin-framed, sleek window and door designs are gaining popularity. This approach, paired with natural light and neutral colours, creates a contemporary and modern front door, turning the window view into a captivating architectural feature.

  1. Biophilic design: A closer connection to nature

Biophilic design is a concept to increase the homeowner’s connectivity to the natural environment using both direct and indirect nature and space. Integrating biophilic design principles into windows and doors enhances the connection with nature, creating a tranquil oasis for wellbeing. The incorporation of natural elements promotes a peaceful atmosphere within your living space.

  1. Innovative glass: Modern innovations for any home

The rise of innovative glass, including smart glass, self-cleaning glass, and energy efficient glass, is a growing trend. Smart glass has switchable transparency and is expected to become more popular in residential properties. Meanwhile, self-cleaning and energy efficient glass offer practical benefits while enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of any home.

  1. Soundproof windows: Creating a peaceful sanctuary

Addressing the common issue of noise pollution, soundproof windows are gaining popularity. Using innovative materials like acoustic laminated glass and specialised weather seals, these windows significantly reduce external noise levels, creating a tranquil living environment.

  1. Energy efficiency and sustainability: A top priority

With a growing concern for the environment, energy efficient and sustainable windows and doors remain a top trend. These solutions not only reduce heat loss but also contribute to a more sustainable future, aligning with the ethical commitments to environmental responsibility.

  1. Smart homes: Convenience and efficiency

As the demand for smart home technology increases, we anticipate more integration in windows and doors. Biometric locks, reinforced frames, shatter-resistant glass, and multi-point locking systems offer advanced security features, contributing to homeowners’ peace of mind.

  1. Dark window frames: Adding personality

A shift towards dark colours in window and door design is expected to continue in 2024. Homeowners are becoming bolder with their choices, using dark frames to add personality and style to their homes.
