It’s said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, so it only makes sense that windows are the key to a home’s soul… and its value. We’ve teamed up with Magic™ to help shed some light on the latest window trends in 2021, and how they can help boost your ROI.
Buck the tradition this year – instead of basic white window frames, opt for a chic black design. Black window frames instantly pull the eye, becoming a room’s fashion-forward feature rather than fading into the background.
Window as Wall
A window wall can turn indoor living into outdoor entertaining in mere seconds. The Magic Window Wall™ pictured here incorporates a plethora of patented tech, making it the most advanced bi-folding window/door system in the world.
Windows Windows Everywhere
Windows are no longer reserved for walls – skylight windows have become an integral part of a home’s design. Ideal for parts of the house where you want more natural light but vertical windows aren’t an option, skylights or sun tunnels are two illuminated choices.
When a Door Closes
When seeking the stylish, on-trend option for backyard access, think beyond basic patio doors. These large, black panelled glass doors from Magic™ – engineered and made in Ontario – let in tons of light and provide plenty of room for guests to flow in and out. The Magic™ team uses a plethora of advanced, patented technologies to fit a client’s design brief.
A purposefully placed window above a guest bed negates the need for art on the wall – the view to the greenery outside (combined with a beautiful wallpaper) becomes the artistic focal point.
This year, having an indoor/outdoor entertaining area is a huge trend. Here, the Magic Window Wall™ – the only four-season-rated product like it in North America – turns an outdoor dining space into a year-round gathering hub, with maximum ventilation, thermal blinds and an integrated bug screen, all thoughtful design elements that cater to Ontario’s climate.
No Longer a Sinking Feeling
Sinks (and, really, kitchens) used to be banished to the backs of our homes… but these days they’re front and centre, ready to be bathed in natural light. Who wouldn’t want a beautiful view while washing up?
Making our living spaces more energy efficient is a goal for all of us these days – and looking at our windows should be a top priority. As a premium Canadian window company, Magic™ makes some of the most energy-efficient windows in the world, and has a lower carbon footprint because they manufacture their products in Ontario.
When it comes to the windows and sliding doors of this cute, modern pool house, the design concept is outside the box (or part of the box?). Turning a corner of this square structure into a corner of glass lets light flood in and eliminates the need for further windows or complicated lighting inside.
Another trend turning up this year is turning traditional window placement on its head (or at its feet). Floor-level windows extend the horizon by carrying sightlines out into the world beyond, creating a sense of expansiveness from the inside out.
