This year, neighborhoods from Denver city to the suburbs are embracing modern and contemporary twists with pocket doors and sliding doors.

Pocket Doors

Pocket doors are a hot new trend that are quicky gaining traction, specifically for to add style and finesses to residential bathroom doors. If you’re into the pocket door look, take the opportunity to make it your own and use your space with single or double doors.

Lift & Glide Sliding Doors

Modern Materials

Just like any other aspect of your home, there are countless door material options to choose from depending on your budget, aesthetic preferences, and durability standards. A few of the most popular door materials for 2022 include:

  • Dark hardwood. Hardwood doors are commonly used for external use, like front-entry doors—impress your guests with a striking and elegant timber door.
  • Sleek aluminum. Although aluminum frames used to be reserved for commercial buildings, this material has made its comeback to residential spaces to execute a sleek modern look.
  • Sliding fiberglass. Sliding fiberglass doors allow easy access to the outside world with a modern appearance that will withstand the test of weather and time.

Hardwood, aluminum, and fiberglass are all striking options for your doors with different benefits—before selecting the door style and material you want, do your research and consult with a local door company.

Windows with a Wow Factor

Windows might seem like a lower priority than other home remodeling projects, but did you know you can be bold and save money with new windows? Two emerging window trends of 2022 are energy efficient windows and dark or black frames to compliment your home.

Energy Efficiency is Key

Energy efficiency and green building is all the rage right now—to lessen your carbon footprint and your heating and cooling bills, invest in energy efficient windows for your home.

To find out what each window’s glass efficiency features include, look for an ENERGY STAR sticker with U-value (heat loss resistance) and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (heat transfer measurement) ratings. The lower the number, the better the energy efficiency. 

Black is Back

One of the most popular window trends for 2022 is the continuance of painted window frames. Regardless of what type of neighborhood you live in, new and old homes are jumping on the bandwagon on dark trim with neutral siding to create a timeless exterior design.
