Today’s post is sponsored by Milgard Windows and Doors.
Can we talk about windows? This topic may not always be on your mind, but when you need them, it’s good to think about how windows can affect the way your home looks on the inside and the outside. When you are used to looking at your home all the time, you may not notice how much the windows impact your home’s appearance. To be honest, I didn’t realize how much new windows could change the look of a home, until I noticed a new window trend.
Have you noticed the new window trend with thin black frames? It’s everywhere. There are a lot of new homes being built near me, and most of them (if not all) have the black window frames on the exterior. The other thing I’ve noticed about the new window trend is the look of thinner window frames. CLICK HERE to see the trend on Pinterest.
To give a bit of information about the trend, several years ago black iron framed doors and windows started becoming very hot. It gives the house an industrial look that is reminiscent of an industrial warehouse that has been converted into high end lofts. The look is cool and the concept of a re-imagined industrial space is increasingly popular. The trend has gained more and more popularity each year. Now it’s going mainstream, and, at least in my area, has become the norm for new homes. The interesting thing is that the look goes so well with contemporary and traditional homes. When I check out the high end neighborhoods, I see these new windows and doors popping up everywhere, and not it’s not just new home construction. People are purchasing replacement windows to get the new look.
I was excited to learn that Milgard Windows has an affordable version of this new design trend. Let’s take a look at the Milgard Trinsic Series vinyl windows. The frame profile is very thin, so you see more of the view and less of the window, plus it’s very energy efficient. They also have a Smart-Touch window lock that is unique to this series. It virtually disappears from view, offering a crisp, clean look to the window frame.
The windows are vinyl and require little to no maintenance, which makes me very happy. Milgard windows also come with a Full Lifetime Warranty. Check out all of the frame colors HERE.

I like the quiet series and the essence series
For me it would be between the Tuscany & Trinsic series-definitely the horizontal slider version though! Love the classic grid design to the Tuscany but the seamless look of the Trinsic would bring the outdoors in! For sure in black-to me it’s the equivalent of eyeliner or mascara-really makes the windows pop!

I like the idea of the Ultra series. I’ve heard good things about fiberglass windows…
Babette Thurston says
I really like the Tuscan series! We need to replace three windows on the front of our home. To be affordable though, I like the Style Line series! I would also love for them to be the horizontal slider! Great giveaway!
Mary Wells says
I think I would choose the Tuscany Series with the grids. I really like the look of them.
Marie Rhudy says
The Trinsic appeals to me because of the thin profile.
I love the wood frame windows and doors!
Audrey Stewart says
I like the Quiet Line™ Series because of the triple panes.
I love the Tuscany series with the grids in bronze color. I need a houseful of new windows!
I really appreciate the Quiet Line due to the triple pane feature.

I love the bronze Trinsic. So perfect for a modern farmhouse look.
I still like the double hung windows. There’s nothing like having the windows open in nice weather and being able to open from the top if you choose. I think I would go with the Tuscany line. I’m a firm believer in going for quality. I would choose an antique bronze finish to complement the shade of brown house paint that we have. Such a big departure from the white windows with the mullions which have been so popular for so long.
I love the Bronze Trinsic because I like the Modern Rustic feel it can give a wood home. Thanks so much for your post on this topic. I really appreciate the information on the new trend.
Living here in Palm Springs near the airport, the Quiet Line would be an excellent choice to block some of the noise. And help with the intense summer heat. A perfect choice for my home!
I like the Tuscany series.

Would have loved the black window frames for the future new house, but it was a bit more…so will have to look into the Milgard.

Oops…forget to mention the Quiet Line Series!
I’d probably get the Quiet Line series.
Hard to choose just one series – but I guess I’d have to say the double hung windows in the Tuscany series. I just love that look & love the idea of them being maintenance-free!
Thanks for the opportunity to be entered in the give away!l
Ultra Series is my favorite. It is true that Less is More!
I like the Ultra…it is true that Less is More!
I really like double hung windows so my choice would be the Tuscany series. However, it was interesting to learn that Milgard makes a Quiet Line series which would be a definite benefit since I live on a busy state road. Thank you for the opportunity!
Melissa Storms says
I love the essence series double hung wood windows.
I vote for the Trinsic because it is just so modern & easy to care for—great look

I love the Essence series. I love the wood windows!
I like the Essence series since they match most closely with my house’s original wood windows.
I’m definitely traditional so I love the Essence Series. I like the vinyl outside and wood inside along with the simulated divided lite. It’s got to be double hung for ease of cleaning on my upstairs windows! Traditional style with modern convenience!
Deborah Borovitcky says
These are lovely.
The quiet line is exactly what I need. I live in a lovely but bustling neighborhood and work from my home office, no noise dampening is a very attractive feature!
The ones that really appeal to me are the arched Radius windows.
