A contemporary home design is a broad area of architecture with many different styles and features prevalent throughout the specific design sector.

However, when it comes to windows a few specific design trends hold steady, being noticeable on many contemporary house designs.

Keeping framing profiles square and flat will create a fuss-free framing design, both inside and out. Contemporary house designs tend to prefer clean, straight edges and lines and mirroring this in your window design will help create a modern window installation.

Also, the use of larger opening windows is popular, creating larger openings of glass into a room. This can create a dramatic visual from the room, especially if your home is gifted with a great view, and can also allow a large amount of nature light into a space which is desirable.

The size of the frame will always be governed by the size of the window opening, as the larger the window opening the more framing that will be needed to support that larger weight. So larger opening windows, like the  Schuco Oversized Casement Window  available at 1m x 2m windows, will have slightly large framing profiles to support the extra weight of glass.

Smaller windows can benefit from a slimmer frame, like the  HSieger Slim Casement Window  that has a minimal 63mm vent and frame profile.

The article also touches on a new window design trend in modern houses for steel replacement, or steel appearance windows. Characterised by slim dark frames, shaped profiles and horizontal mullions, these windows are perfect for industrial design projects of listed projects.

The  Sieger Steel Replacement Window  is a cost effective option for steel replacement windows (most designs are extortionately expensive) recreating the design and appearance of a steel window in a modern, thermally efficient window design.
