How to Choose Window Frame Color
Fall is a great time to replace your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Plattsburgh home.
This year’s most fashionable window frame color choices include cool neutrals, such as metallics, black and gray. And don’t leave out darker earth tones like brown, red and green.
But with a variety of different shades available, how do you pick the perfect fit?
Our design specialists at Pella of Plattsburgh can help you choose the right color to complement your home. We’ll explain your options and prepare you with a no-obligation quote—all from the comfort of your living room.
Consider Your Home’s Style
Keep your home’s look in mind when choosing a window frame color.
White and black work with most any design style. Black is especially outstanding for industrial- or farmhouse-style homes, making windows a powerful focal point.
Contrasting trim colors let windows stand out in a traditional home. Matching trim colors that blend in are best for modern- or contemporary-style spaces.
You can also work with a color palette that goes with your home style.
Warm for Traditional Homes
Cool for Modern Homes
It’s also important to consider your home’s exterior materials, as well as the Plattsburgh weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t absorb heat as fast.
Vinyl or Wood Siding
Make a bold statement with contrasting colors. Use white if your home has a darker siding color and black for a lighter siding color.
Brick or Stone
Contrasting colors like bright white, blue, green or black add curb appeal, especially for painted brick or neutral stone.
Hold off on red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the stone.
Choose bold colors for your window trim, since you can easily paint stucco a coordinating pigment.
