Windows lie at the heart of your home’s finished look – and not just from an architectural perspective. Whether framing a view or filtering in natural light, well-designed glazing will always draw the eye and provide a focal point for your interior decor scheme.

With options such as dual-colour finishes enabling you to personalise your windows inside and out, there’s a huge amount of window design choice available to suit different styles and trends. Here are six on-trend design ideas:


This interior style is all about expressing your individuality by pairing nostalgic retro pieces with new contemporary accents. There’s no set colour palette to follow, but wavy patterns and curvy furniture, preferably upcycled, are key features.

So, Newstalgia offers a fantastic opportunity to bring family heirlooms into a stylish modern home. For the perfect backdrop, look for windows that will bring out the natural beauty of your home, such as Residence Collections’ 9 collection in Honey Oak.

Dark Academia

Taking inspiration from libraries and studies, this trend focuses on creating cocooning, romantic and atmospheric spaces. A moody, modern palette of dark greys, blacks, aubergines and emerald greens is set against accessories such as globes, bankers’ lamps, candles and books.

Featuring a contemporary flush aesthetic, clean lines and great acoustic and thermal properties, the R7 window in Noir fits the bill perfectly – matching outstanding performance with a velvet-like, pure black finish.

Country Cottage

This ever-popular style – often referred to as Cottagecore – embodies the cosy, rustic charm of a quintessential English country cottage. Team gingham, striped, tartan and floral patterns with warm shades of cream and yellow for a truly inviting living space.

Fresh flowers, shabby chic decorations and cosy soft furnishings will add a homely touch. Window-wise, it’s in the name: look no further than the elegant flush exterior and sandy yellow-brown tone of the timber-alternative R9 in English Oak.


Want to bring the outside in? Capture the tranquillity of the biophilic trend with houseplants, natural materials (stone, rattan and bamboo), a fresh colour palette (whites, creams and greens) and plenty of natural light beaming through.

Backdrop this with beautiful garden views, framed by the R9 timber-alternative window in a soft, modern Irish Oak finish. You’ll stay cosy, too, as the R9 range offers U-values as low as 0.74 W/m2K in triple glazing or 1.2 W/m2K for double glazed options.

Art Deco

Bring the glitz and glam of the roaring 20s into the 2020s. The Art Deco trend is heavily focused around jewel tones of navy, ruby, emerald and plum, adorned with geometric shapes and gold accents for a luxurious touch.

The R7 in Eclectic Grey is a fantastic foundation for a 1920s vibe – a bold, interesting shade that lends itself to both heritage and modern properties. Other suitable shades from the Residence Collections’ range of 26 colours include Noir and Rosewood.


Couple Japanese minimalism with Scandinavian practicality for a clutter-free home that will help ease your mind at the end of the day. For this style, start by removing everything you don’t need from your living areas. Keep only what’s essential and ensure new elements are simple, neutral, minimal, fresh and functional.

The R9 window in Clay, part of the coastal collection, is the perfect partner for both style and function – offering an A++ energy rating thanks to its nine-chamber design.

The Residence Collection’s windows replicate 19th century timber designs while incorporating a raft of modern features and benefits, including excellent acoustic and thermal properties, and are perfect for a range of interior styles.

You’ll find everything from timeless classics like Grained White through to modern favourites such as Electric Grey – including a dual finish option so you can enjoy windows and doors that look as good from the inside as they do outside.
