It’s hard to believe that 2018 is coming to a close. It seems like only yesterday we published our first blog of the year.
So before saying goodbye to 2018 and welcoming 2019, let’s take a look back at the blogs which connected with our customers the most.
February: 2018 Windows and Door Trends
And for those of you who kept things the same, here’s a recap of what you missed:
- Windows: It was all about modern and minimal. Ornate, fancy windows were replaced by a “back-to-basics” design that focused on sharp lines and black tones
- Doors: Big, bold, brash, and statement-making. Brass finishes, larger-than-normal doors, and even smart locks to showcase a home’s personality before setting foot inside
In case you missed it the first time, take another look at 2018’s window and door trends.
Wondering what 2019 has in store for windows and doors? Here’s a sneak peek:
- Blue (yes, blue) front doors
- Blinds inspired by nature
- Coloured windows
April: The Myths and Facts Behind Window Shutters
Since 1999, we’ve heard the same misconceptions when it comes to window shutters:
- Anyone can install them without experience
- They don’t allow much light to enter a room
- They age the appearance of a home
- They’re too expensive
In April, we separated fact from fiction when it comes to window shutters.
Nobody really knows where or how these myths came to be. But what’s for certain is many people believe them.
And if you happen to think the same way about window shutters, take a look at this helpful infographic to get the real scoop.
August: Bay vs. Bow Windows
It’s easy to confuse bay windows with bow windows (and vice versa) because they’re both:
- Similar in name and appearance
- Great for letting in plenty of light
So in August, we explained the differences between the two.
- Bay windows: Usually have 3-4 windows with a flat front that’s affixed in place, while the side windows are angled and can open up to a variety of angles
- Bow windows: Can have 4, 5, or even 6 individual openings (called “lites”). These openings are curved; the same size, and operate the same way
If you’re thinking of updating your windows in 2019, compare bay windows vs. bow windows to help you get exactly what you want.
