Home Improvement Trends For 2024

As the new year approaches, we reflect on the double-glazing home improvement trends of homeowners in Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire from the past year and predict how these trends will change and develop in the coming year. 

In a time when our homes serve as spaces to live, work and relax, creating a comfortable, efficient and aesthetically pleasing environment is more important than ever. From creating a connection with the outdoors with bi-folding and sliding doors to infusing timeless elegance and personalisation with hardware and a range of colour and style choices, next year’s trends promise a blend of functionality, style and sustainability.  

Join us as we delve into our trend predictions and inspire you for your next home improvement project:

1. Connecting with the outdoors

With more demands being put on our homes as working-from-home levels remain at an all-time high, our living space continues to play an important role in maintaining physical and mental well-being. It is essential for many homeowners to maintain a connection to their outdoor surroundings despite spending an increasing amount of time indoors.

Adding large areas of glazing to bring in natural light is one of the ways our Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire homeowners are choosing to bring the outside in. Bifolding and sliding doors remain a popular choice, boasting slim sightlines with minimal obstruction between you and your outdoor spaces. Not only do they provide easy access to your outdoor space but also help you to maintain a connection with the outdoors with year-round expansive views of your natural surroundings. 

Another way to open up your space and bring in additional light is by adding a Korniche roof lantern. They are a great investment and perfectly complement a diverse number of projects including flat roof extensions, orangeries, new builds, kitchen diners and garage conversions. Roof lanterns have the additional benefit of adding volume to your room, making it feel spacious and airy. 

2. Customisation and colour choice

Following a shift towards the home being a multifunctional space for living, working and entertaining, homeowners have been making more and more custom choices. Tailoring space to your personal needs and tastes through colour and configuration helps create a more special and meaningful environment. 

We have noted a rise in the popularity of warmer neutrals including pebble and agate grey, creamy off-whites as well as earthy sage green hues. This colour palette helps homeowners to create a welcoming appearance and sense of calm.

Customising your glass options is another great way to add a touch of personality to your property. We offer a wide array of decorative glass options: coloured, bevelled and leaded styles. Custom leaded glass designs allow for almost any image to be transferred onto the glass. Adding a bespoke design to your property helps to bring character and style into your home.

3. Comfort and energy efficiency

The search for energy-efficient, multipurpose spaces within our homes has become a driving force behind many recent home improvement projects. Energy efficiency is a vital aspect of creating versatile, sustainable living spaces that cater to our evolving needs.

Our energy-efficient windows are designed with a multi-chambered profile that allows for improved u-values. This reduces heat loss within your home and keeps the temperature regulated throughout the year. In addition to this, Solar glass can be installed to help keep your space comfortable by balancing temperature control while simultaneously maintaining natural light when the weather gets cooler. It also helps minimise solar heat gain and controls glare during the increasingly warm summers.

By incorporating a tiled replacement roof into your conservatory or extension, you not only expand your living space but significantly enhance the warmth and energy efficiency of your home. With a fully insulated roof design achieving U-values as low as 0.15—roughly 10 times more efficient than an A-rated window—the Equinox system substantially reduces heat loss, effectively cutting down your energy costs.

Equinox roofs are finished with insulated plasterboard which gives the appearance of a conventional home extension. However, if you want to benefit from added natural light as well as warmth and efficiency, you can add large, glazed panels.

4. Timeless style and traditional details

This year has seen an increase in homeowners opting for classic features and finishes that offer a timeless elegance. We expect to see this trend continue into the new year in both modern and traditional Lincolnshire properties. 

If you are looking to inject some classic style into your home, flush casement windows are the ideal choice for both modern and period properties. Replicating the aesthetics of traditional timber frames these windows offer a balance of classic elegance with the benefits of modern technology. With enhanced security and thermal technology, flush casements deliver a low-maintenance, cost-effective alternative to timber windows without compromising on charm and character. 

Our flush casements come in a wide range of colours and finishes. Adding a woodgrain finish is a great way to enhance the traditional and timeless feel of your windows. Other hardware options such as our monkey tail handles, can also help to add charm and character to your home. 

5. Sleek slimline aluminium

With clean lines and minimalist design, aluminium offers a timeless yet contemporary feel. It, therefore, comes as no surprise that it remains a popular choice among many homeowners.

Aluminium stands out as a sustainable choice with a lifespan of 40- 45 years and impressive recyclability. It is a highly recyclable material and can be used and reused nearly an infinite number of times. Today, around 75% of the world’s aluminium is already recycled.
