Most popular colour of aluminium windows in Wolverhampton 2021

With the new year fast approaching, we thought we would take a look back at some of the most popular trends for aluminium window colours in Wolverhampton for 2021. In a year where travel restrictions have paused holiday plans, many homeowners have looked at using funds to improve their homes instead. Discover what the most popular colour shades have been for aluminium windows this year, and why so many homeowners now turn to aluminium as their material of choice for replacement windows.

Versatile Anthracite grey windows

An ever-popular choice, Anthracite Grey has remained the most requested aluminium window colour in 2021. With the growing demand for aluminium windows for residential properties, Anthracite Grey has become popular with homeowners looking for an attractive alternative to white uPVC windows. Anthracite Grey is an extremely versatile colour that stands the test of time and effortlessly complements almost any building material. It looks great on buildings with painted render, exposed brickwork, stone, or even timber cladding. It is an understated colour and, although often chosen for contemporary property installations, it is equally suited to more traditional home styles.

Minimalist and classic shades of black for aluminium windows

Timeless and stylish, shades of black have continued to be a popular colour choice for aluminium windows in 2021. Black shades can be used to add contrast to your home, giving your windows a welcome difference from traditional shades of white and boosting kerb appeal. If your house is white or cream, choosing black gives you a really sleek and contrasting look. It is also suggested that black frames can help draw your eyes to the outdoor view. Almost like an optical illusion, black’s negative properties can make the interior frame seem to ‘disappear’ so that your eye is drawn to the outside view. Popular shades of black this year have included Graphite Black and Grey Black.

Bright yet unobtrusive Chartwell Green windows

Chartwell Green is a popular and bright pastel shade that has remained a firm favourite for homeowners in Wolverhampton throughout the entirety of 2021. It is understated and tasteful yet offers a brighter aesthetic than Anthracite Grey and other more muted choices. Beautifully light, airy, and low-key, Chartwell Green aluminium windows will win your home more kerb appeal and attention from passers-by without looking too garish or out of line with the rest of your property. Often a colour chosen for more heritage style homes in places like Sutton Coldfield, Chartwell Green is also suited to more modern property styles in newer developments in places like Stourbridge.


Woodgrain effect aluminium windows in Wolverhampton

2021 has seen an increase in the demand for woodgrain finish aluminium windows. Modern timber-effect windows are almost indistinguishable from the real thing, allowing you to enjoy the highly sought-after natural beauty of wood while retaining a thermally efficient profile to maximise your investment. Popular woodgrain effect colours include Irish Oak, Rosewood, and Mahogany. Real timber windows are often the most expensive window material choice and do come with the need for fairly regular maintenance. Aluminium windows finished with a woodgrain foil are not only considerably cheaper but also require next to no maintenance.

Dual colour aluminium windows to match interior décor

The term dual colour windows is used to describe windows that have a different colour for the internal and external parts of the frame. Many homeowners prefer them because they offer additional customisation by allowing them to create a different look for the inside and outside of their home. With the rise in home improvements from 2020 – 2021, we have seen an increase in the number of homeowners seeking dual colour finish aluminium windows.

Earlier this year, our customers Mr and Mrs Hooper totally upgraded their conservatory to feature an Anthracite Grey exterior with a Cream interior to complement their home décor. This is a stunning example of how effective opting for a duel colour finish can be.

Why choose aluminium windows?

As more and more homeowners in Wolverhampton are becoming aware of the benefits that come with aluminium windows, their popularity is increasing. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider aluminium windows:

  • Aluminium is inherently strong, making aluminium windows incredibly durable and secure.
  • Whilst also being durable, aluminium profiles have the added advantage of being easy to maintain. A quick wipe down once in a while with a damp cloth will be enough to keep your frames looking their best.
  • The use of thermal break technology means aluminium windows are extremely thermally efficient. Thermally broken aluminium frames provide exceptional thermal performance, reducing your energy bills whilst keeping your home well insulated all year round. Thermal break technology features a reinforced polyamide (plastic) strip between the inside and outside aluminium profiles, creating an insulated barrier within the window frame. This strip slows the conduction of heat and cold.
  • By its very nature, aluminium has a remarkably high strength-to-weight ratio. This means that there is less aluminium needed to withstand large amounts of glazing in comparison to alternative window materials. This means you can enjoy nearly uninterrupted views outside and plenty of natural light in your home.
