If you’re contemplating a new look on the home front this year, you’ll be after some inspiration in the doors and windows department.
As luck would have it, a double glazing specialist has compiled a list of their top three home improvement trends for 2017.
Mark Farmer-Wright, Product Development Manager for Anglian Home Improvements, predicts these three trends will influence home styling over the next 12 months:
1 Get personal
Forget about the fashion for identikit minimalist chic – Mark says personalisation will “define home décor trends” in 2017.

“On the colour front, white will continue to become less popular with demand for sophisticated hues continuing to grow as more homeowners draw décor inspiration from their personalities for a look which complements their own unique sense of style.
“And when it comes to window frames, sage green, grey and cream are set to be some of the key growth colours in the next year.”

2 Bring the outside in
This has been talked about for a while, and the trend for bringing the outside in is only going to become more popular.
Mark says: “The blending of interior and exterior spaces is set to be one of the hottest trends with bi-fold doors in demand.
“In 2017, we will see more homeowners opting for aluminium bi-fold doors, with slimmer sight lines than PVCu, so even when the doors are closed the room still feels as though it has been opened up to the great outdoors.”
3 The doors have it
For many renovators, a home’s success hinges – ahem – on its doors. They’re a big deal on social media, too - over 70,000 Instagram posts have the hashtag #ihavethisthingwithdoors.
Mark says: “It’s unsurprising that doors are having ‘a moment’, given that they make such a statement to anyone walking past, approaching or entering the home.
“At Anglian, our composite doors have been in high demand; we expect sales of composite doors to increase even further this year, and at some point in the not too distant future to overtake uPVC doors.
“They are seen as more energy efficient and more secure, but ultimately they provide more options for personalisation, with a greater range of colours.”
