At JELD-WEN, we’re deeply invested in style research and product development to deliver windows and doors that complement the style of every home—and every price point. 

So we invested in research to understand the elements of trending styles, incorporate them into our windows and doors, and curated style collections to make it easier for builders, contractors, and their clients to design and budget.  

JELD-WEN has the science of style on lock. Let’s take a closer look at the defining elements of today’s popular home styles and simple ways to bring them to life.  


Coastal homes mix expansive contemporary glass and open floor plans with traditional touches like plank detailing, natural wood, and decorative lite configurations in the entryway. Together, these elements can make anyone feel like they’re enjoying a day at the beach.

Updated Traditional 

Updated Traditional takes classic regional architecture styles and elevates them to stunning and sophisticated reincarnations. Key elements for this style include clean lines, decorative glass, vintage details, and lots of natural light mixed with classic features.

Farmhouse style is popular all over the country, from urban areas to farmland. Defined by simplicity, natural light, and authenticity, it’s a style that’s much bigger than the home—it’s about meaningful pieces that tell a story.

Having a pulse on trending home styles is an important part of predicting what’s next. While there’s a market for popular styles in every region, right now traditional styles are a safe bet. According to the National Association of Home Builders, traditional is preferred in eight out of nine regions.
