As we’re now in the New Year, it means a few more cold nights in that we’ll have to wait until we have something to all look forward to. So whilst we wait, why don’t we take a look at some new household trends emerging this year that you might look forward to installing in your home for 2022?
With a greater emphasis on environmental sustainability, triple glazed windows are definitely increasing in popularity this year. Often installed in really cold countries like Denmark, the surge of demand for these windows in the UK has risen possibly due to soaring energy prices. Triple glazing insulates far more than other glazing options, henceforth meaning that it can reduce energy bills overall. We think that demand for them will only continue to grow in the future, as the goal to reach net zero carbon emissions will result in more energy efficient solutions like this being implemented in homes around the country.
uPVC has come a long way since its beginnings decades earlier. What was once seen as clunky has become a far sleeker and stylish fitting option but still with all the benefits of the original uPVC frames. Casements are incredibly versatile in both the sizes of the fittings and the styles of casements that can suit any aesthetic.
This type of door is a very popular option that pairs well with patios and conservatories. When installing the doors, French Doors can work around your home’s layout very easily, being both inwards and outwards swinging. Again, this door is another well insulated option with its double glazing, meaning that not only can the doors keep your home cool in the summer, but insulate well in the winter also.
Bi folds are increasingly popular alongside patios – with such a wide opening, the door offers many benefits. A bi-fold door really lets the outside indoors, in the hot summer months the large opening from the doors pulled opened all the way really helps aerate your home and looks very appealing (especially when you’ve got company round). Not only does the fitting look great, but with such large panes it does a fantastic job of letting in a lot of natural light meaning that even when the nights pull earlier on those dark winter evenings, you’ll still enjoy the most of the natural light through the large bi-fold door panels.
Conservatories as home offices
The way we work has changed due to the pandemic, it’s interesting to see that many more homes have had conservatories installed – potentially as a place to work from home in. Not only can a conservatory be a great place to set up a home office in, but can also add value onto your property. And if you are worried about cleaning, the latest options include self-cleaning glass, a trend that is sure to be in demand in 2022.
