Matching Windows To Interior Trends

Premium window and door designer The Residence Collection, has worked with experts to identify the top six interior design trends in the UK which will influence what homeowners fancy from their new windows.

This year’s hottest trends, and which windows perfectly complement them, are:


Country cottage

The timeless country cottage or cottagecore trend in interior design captures the cosiness, comfort and rustic beauty of a classic cottage. Windows in English oak would fit in.


Art Deco

Throughout the 1920s, moody colours, jewel tones and geometric patterns dominated the Art Deco designs which are currently seeing a renaissance. The Residence Collection R7 has a match with its contemporary colours such as Noir, Rosewood, and Eclectic Grey.



Bringing the outside inside with natural materials, a modern colour scheme and plenty of natural light streaming through your windows are the principles of Biophilic interior style. Windows in Irish oak would be band on trend.


Dark academia

Dark academia is all about creating a moody, comfortable, and atmospheric room that makes you think of a library or study. The R7 window in Noir would fit this style. This true black is a luxurious window colour that helps create a real sense of atmosphere.



The interior design trend known as ‘newstalgia’ combines retro and vintage furnishings with modern accents and is a wonderful way to showcase homeowner’s individuality – a bit like Residence 9.



With a focus on minimalism, a clutter-free environment and functional furniture, this interior design blends Scandinavian functionality with Japanese minimalism. The neutral shade, Clay, is ideal for Japandi styling. Windows that come in any RAL colour could be suited to Clay.



Residence Collection offers R2, R7, and R9 all with dedicated door sashes for open-in, open-out and engineered doors. The R9 collection will replicate 19th century timber windows and is designed to embrace modern manufacturing techniques.

R7 has flush sash finishes inside and out, giving the R7 its modern appearance and versatility to be used for a wide range of properties and interior trends, such as art deco and dark academia.

The R2 collection is a combination of modern materials and classic styling with clean lines and a squarer modern look.

All three window systems have been approved and installed in conservation areas and listed buildings across the UK.

Jo Trotman, the marketing manager at The Residence Collection, says: “Windows are integral to a home and can help transform the look of a property. When looking to update and make changes, whether it’s to fit current trends or not, we have pulled together this research for homeowners and installers to consider The Residence Collection and our versatile and comprehensive list of products.”
