After the wild ride of the housing markets of 2020 to 2022, home design is going to continue to emphasize simplicity, welcoming renovations, and general integration of indoor and outdoor spaces going into 2023. With the pandemic and increasing urgency over a healthy amount of space, up to 70% of U.S. households are now single-family homes, according to the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy. If you’re a homeowner looking for the best ways to optimize your living space, here are the top window and door trends to consider for 2023.
Escaping the Boundaries of Indoors and Outdoors
Americans are craving a change from the everyday confines that they found themselves in during the pandemic, and they are insisting on wider, more welcoming windows and doors that put minimal barriers between the interior of the home and the great outdoors. Windows are becoming more door-like, with casement windows being on-trend after years of sidelining in interior design, as well as more all-glass walls that function as doors. Removing the boundaries between indoors and out remains a trend in new construction and renovations.
Bigger Windows Make Better Pictures
The glass windowed patio door has been around for many years, and it’s becoming even more popular now than it was in the past. The University of Minnesota has published multiple studies showing that the more times and ways that people can get close to nature, the more their health benefits from it. Outdoor exercise and leisure are better for you than spending time indoors, but being outside at all times isn’t practical. Having larger, more transparent windows and doors will enable you to enjoy the many benefits of natural light, even from indoors.
Wider Doors for an Aging Population
By 2027, every member of the Baby Boom generation, those born from 1945 to 1962, will reach retirement age. Older people tend to need wider doors in their homes, both exterior and interior, to accommodate mobility aids they didn’t need when they were younger. Aging homeowners must continue to renovate their homes to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs as they get older. This way, they can stay in their homes longer, which has a proven beneficial effect on physical and mental health.
Modern trends in windows and doors will only accelerate in 2023. To begin your remodeling journey this summer, contact All American Window and Door today. We look forward to working with you!
