Grey aluminium windows

Window and door trends in 2019

Is 2019 the year to undertake some much needed home improvements? a new kitchen, a new bathroom, time to build that extension you have been talking about, or the year to build your dream home?

Investing in upgrading your windows and doors will not only improve the look and feel of your home, both inside and out, but it can also improve the resale appeal and value. Therefore, a cost-effective and future-proof home improvement project.

Your windows and doors are an important part of your home, both in terms of function and design. When looking for the best fit for your house, don’t get overwhelmed by the options, Aspect Windows are here to help.

The need for simplicity, efficiency and beauty in windows and doors will continue to be a trend in 2019, matching the rest of the home. With many people being modern and contemporary in their style choices.

Big glazing

Big windows with even bigger views is one of the top window goals for homeowners. Slim frames and large glazed areas are key when choosing windows and doors in 2019. This year expect to see more floor to ceiling windows with modern minimal frames. As the market evolves, larger windows are becoming more accessible to homeowners. Helping to blur the lines between inside and outside living.

Coloured Windows and Doors

For many years there has been a steady increase in homeowners choosing a colour finish for their windows and doors, in both aluminium and PVCu. Grey has become the new white. With black finishes becoming more and more trendy.

Matte black is set to be very popular in 2019. Black framed windows will turn your new windows into a statement piece and work well with both traditional and modern homes. While white framed windows will always be in style and look timeless, houses with black window frames look up-to-date and fresh.

Bright and bold colours are also set to be popular in 2019. An excellent way to add style and individuality to your property.

Whether you are choosing aluminium, PVCu, or composite timber windows there is a range of colours to choose from. Including the option of dual colours, allowing you to have a different colour on the outside of your frames compared to the inside.

Energy efficient Windows and Doors

Energy efficient windows are a must for 2019, with homeowners looking for windows and doors with low u-values.

One of the biggest reasons for upgrading windows and doors in a property is due to energy efficiency. Along with the fact that modern materials are much better at keeping the warm air inside and the cold air outside, perfectly installed modern windows and doors will also prevent draughts.

Thanks to the energy efficiency of modern windows and doors, it is now possible to have incredibly thin frames and large glass panels. As a result, households can enjoy sweeping, uninterrupted views out of their glazing, and have natural light fill their homes.

Smart Door Lock

One to look out for is Smart Doors Locks, we’ve seen it with cars, where the car automatically unlocks/locks when you get close to it with the key. Similar is available for your house. Smart door locks work with your phone through an app and Bluetooth. Meaning you no longer need to worry about your home when you can’t remember if you locked the front door. Or struggle to reach your keys to unlock the door when your hands are full.


The forecast for windows in the coming year and beyond is big units with an unobstructed views, set in minimal frames. With the aesthetic being unabashedly modern, and shapes being square and rectilinear.

Like with most things in life, when choosing windows and door for most people it is a balance between cost and performance. Whilst wanting high performance installations, aesthetic, technical and cost parameters all need to be balanced. In the south west we also have the added complication of severe weather rating to contend with plus the marine environment.

"The whole process has been excellent - I really appreciate the patience you've taken on what is a huge expenditure for a passion project, working with total amateurs! You've always taken the time to answer questions, explain options and crucially, make recommendations when nativity/inexperience clouds our judgement. A real skill and something I personally have really appreciated as I feel confident that we now have windows and doors that complement our house, design and style. Without that level of consultative engagement and relationship I'm confident I would have overlooked details and made a substandard decision. Thank you!"

Mrs Trestain, Padstow

"Just a quick note of thanks to the whole team for our fab windows and doors, we are delighted with both the product and also with the whole fitting process. The lads were brilliant (it's not often you get trades in the house who leave it cleaner at the end of the day than when they arrive in the morning!!) and just quietly got on with the job. Thank you again"

"I wanted to just send my thanks and appreciation. We had an install approx. 6 years ago including some bi-fold doors which in recent weeks appeared to have dropped and became very difficult to lock. I called the office on Monday and a lady took my details and quickly called me back suggesting you had an engineer locally the following day. He arrived and was extremely polite and efficient and diagnosed a broken hinge. He went back to the depot collected the replacement part, then returned to Budleigh and completed the repair. We really appreciate the speed and efficiency with which you dealt with the issue and the ease from a customer perspective. "

Mr Ashby, Budleigh Salterton
