Putting a stylish spin on modern window design involves:
- Getting the frames right

- Learning how modern architecture loves windows
- Knowing the energy ratings
Let’s take a closer look at each point.
Getting the frames right
Modern window designs do not need the traditional thick, wide, and unsightly frames on your windows.
Frame materials such as high-density fiberglass give you freedom when choosing innovative window designs. Modern designs allow the use of thin frames, which allow in more light. These stylish frames give a longer, wider feel to a space and enhance your home
Modern window design brings the outside in, and the frames are an integral part of that feeling.
Taking a look at the different designs available
There is a wide choice of modern window designs available.
The picture window stands out as a real sign of modern design in a building. This long, single-frame window can be portrait or landscape in shape. The window also frames a beautiful view outside or maybe highlights a favorite part of the garden. The eye is not distracted by a frame, turning the window into a picture on the wall.
Awning windows are perfect for controlling airflow through a room, and look great along a hallway or extended area. They fit to the top of the frame, or the foot and open outwards on hinges or cranks. An awning window can be up to five-foot-high and eight-foot-wide. A thin frame helps the awning window to become part of the overall design of the room, effortlessly.
Casement windows in modern design frames work well in combination with awning windows. They can also work as picture frame windows, but open out to let in fresh air during the warmer months.
Learning how modern architecture loves windows
Modern architecture is all about living as part of the surrounding environment.
Take a walk through a home built along modern architectural designs, and you will love the light. People also love feeling part of the surrounding landscape and how big windows draw their eyes to what is happening outside.
Modern window design is behind these advancements.
Stylish choices will open your home to the outside, and let the light flow into each room. Picture windows, awning and casement designs, all in thin, fiberglass frames look stylish and add to the modern design.
A modern architect will love to open your house to the light. Work with them and use stylish windows to complete the project.
Knowing the energy ratings
This is where stylish, modern window design can save the homeowner money.
Using energy-efficient glass in your window design will reduce utility bills by keeping the heat in during the winter, but out during the summer months. Both dual pane and triple-pane windows are sealed with Argon gas, which stops the flow of air through the glass. UV filters prevent a room from becoming a hothouse on sunny days, a vital consideration when you have those tall, beautiful windows bringing in all that light.
Take heed of energy ratings; they are essential in choosing the right windows for the home.
