The latest door and window trends bringing the love in 2024

Doors and windows are so much more than just a barrier between inside and out.

They represent your style, they are often the first part of your home visitors see and feel, and they keep you and your family secure and warm. But what will the big trends be in 2024? And how can you take advantage of demand?

Make a statement

When it comes to front doors we’re seeing an increase in demand for bold eye-catching pieces.

The iconic doctor's door knocker makes a strong statement on any front door

Traditional hardware, whose designs date back centuries, is in high demand as home owners, architects and developers look to capture the elegance of times gone by.

The sturdy iconic doctors’ door knocker, for instance, used in Georgian times to identify the doctor’s house to patients, is one of our best sellers.

Perfect match

One of the most requested features from our customers is having a range of matching hardware that can be suited across a whole project.

Demand for matching suited hardware continues to drive innovation

If you’re replacing a front door, updating windows or extending a property, there’s nothing worse than ruining all that hard work with mismatched hardware and finishes.

Coastal Group offers a wide range of collections, including durable antique black, satin and polished stainless steel and brass. These collections give you the hardware you need to add the finishing touches to any job.

Energy efficiency

The practical side of property development will always win, particularly as the cost of living continues to make headlines.

Practical considerations such as energy efficiency continue to impact the market

Keeping heat inside, preventing drafts and improving insulation are all important factors for home owners and businesses looking at door and window improvements.

At Coastal Group, we can advise on the best weather seals and tapes to keep the cold out and the heat in until the warmer days of Spring and Summer arrive.

Let’s go outside

An ever popular way to improve living space is to bring the outside in with bifold or sliding patio doors. Online searches for ‘patio doors’ double in the Spring, making now the ideal time to tap into this growing market.

The latest folding and sliding doors offer the best of modern living

With people spending more time at home through hybrid working post-pandemic, additional space and light will undoubtedly continue to drive demand for external folding and sliding door systems.

Sustainability

While love should last forever, your waste isn’t something you want hanging around in ten, twenty or thirty years.

Packaging that can be recycled and sustainable manufacture are just two ways we're reducing our carbon footprint

Companies are increasingly looking for ways to reduce their waste and maximise sustainability through recyclable packaging and sustainable materials.

At Coastal we’re always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint, either through packaging that can be recycled or through more efficient production.

Min frame, max view

Following on from the love of folding and sliding doors is the growth of floor to ceiling windows with slim frames.

In minimalist contemporary homes, thin frames have never been more popular. Paired with neutral colours and natural materials, they open up spaces while adding the wow factor with no distractions.

We’ve developed a range of handles, thumb turns and escutcheons to meet growing demand for sliding door furniture on slim frames.

Got wood?

The enduring charm of wood makes timber doors and windows as popular as ever. Wooden doors have excellent insulation properties, provide unmatched sound-proofing and can be sourced from sustainable suppliers.

They can even be enhanced with high tech treatments such as Accoya. Created from sustainably sourced soft wood, Accoya is a hardy coating that prevents shrinkage and warping, producing a durable product with uncompromised strength.

Add the finishing touch to your next Accoya projects with Coastal’s range of BLU hardware, manufactured from 316 marine grade stainless steel, designed to work seamlessly with Accoya wood.

Whatever you’re falling in love with this Valentines Day, we hope it lasts as long as 316 marine-grade stainless steel (i.e. a lifetime).
