Contemporary Idea Book

Create a unique architectural look.

Stylish hardware. Stunning colors. Sleek finishes. No matter what design you have in mind, Windsor allows you to achieve it in style with our Contemporary window and door options.

Stile + Style

With more visible glass than a classic French stile, our narrow stile door significantly increases the daylight opening to create a clean, contemporary look.

Mix + Match

Streamline your design with contemporary finishes, or let understated colors be the showstopper. Go bold with a textured black exterior or a painted black interior.* Highlight your views with a low profile 90-degree corner window or a sprawling 20-foot multi-slide door. Our product combinations are nearly endless...

  • Take a daring approach with white interiors and hardware that serve as strong accents against other colors.
  • Choose black finishes for a powerful contrast to lighter colors in a modern design, or an inviting, seamless complement to darker shades.
  • Create a hint of drama and elegance in any door or window by incorporating bronze or black into your palette.
  • Add a sense of lightness to your home with satin nickel.
  • Brighten things up with brushed chrome, which offers a lighter luster than satin nickel while maintaining a subtle look.
  • Make your hardware stand out from its surroundings with the brilliant sheen of polished chrome. 

One-of-a-kind Configurations


Round out the contemporary look with our new Textured Black feature color.
