If you are looking for unique ideas to update your doors and windows in the new year, take a look at our list of how you can make your home even more stylish in 2023. We’ve put together a quick list of 10 unique window and door ideas for 2023 that we are sure you will love.
Stained Glass Windows
While actual stained glass is quite pricey, adding it to your home is a beautiful way to add a unique change for the new year. For those who don’t quite want to commit to new or vintage stained glass, there are plenty of stained glass decals online that allow you to create the same look for a fraction of the price.
Accordion doors are a great way to open up a space, and add a unique twist on classic sliding doors or french doors. Accordion doors tend to be more expensive than sliding doors, but are sleek and interesting investments that will add a unique touch to your home for years to come.
Arches in home decor have been trending since 2020 and are quickly becoming a modern classic. Arched windows will add a very unique architectural detail to your home and can even add value when it is time to sell yours.
The latest home trends for 2023 have been trending toward adding character back into homes. Homeowners are looking to add charm, history, and their own personality to their homes, especially in a market full of generic modern homes. A great way to add this character is with a reclaimed front door. You can typically find these doors online, or ask around at a local historical society for any historic homes that are being renovated or torn down nearby.
Painted Window Frames
While many people opt for classic white or black window frames, a much more unique idea for 2023 is to paint your window frames. What’s great about this idea is that you don’t even have to paint the inside and outside the same color. You can paint the inside the same color as your walls for a chic monochromatic look, and leave the outside plain to match your home’s exterior.
Barn Door Shutters
Instead of curtains or drapes, some people are opting for the unique idea of barn door shutters on the inside of their windows. These are a total statement piece and can be customized with wood carvings, painted, or just left natural to add some warmth with a beautiful woodgrain.
Most new homes in America opt for double-hung windows, which allow you to easily slide them open and shut. However, if you are looking for a more unique window, opt for the European standard of casement windows. While it may take longer to crank open, these windows offer a full unobstructed view and some unique old-world charm.
If you have a window that is too close to your neighbors, or a bathroom window that you continuously cover with a curtain or a shade, why not add an opaque film over the window? These opaque films offer more privacy than a curtain, while still letting in tons of natural light. Opaque window films are also available in tons of unique designs that can add extra character to your home.
A very unique way to upgrade your front door is to make it an odd size. A standard front door is 80 inches by 36 inches, so adjusting these proportions and making it wider or taller will give your home a custom and unique feel.
Wooden Window Frames
If you are looking for a more unique look for your windows, opt for wooden frames instead of the standard vinyl. While these frames break down faster, if they are properly sealed and maintained they will last beautifully for many years. Wood window frames are more unique than vinyl, as they are less common in modern homes, therefore refreshing your home and making it stand out in 2023 and beyond.
