How to Choose Window Frame Color

Fall is an ideal time to replace your windows and doors. And add a modern pop of color inside and outside your North Carolina home.

This year’s most loved window frame color options include cool neutrals, such as metallics, black and gray. And don’t count out darker earth tones like brown, red and green.

Remember Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s décor in mind when selecting a window frame color.

White and black work with pretty much any design style. Black is especially striking 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 better for modern- or contemporary-style homes.

You can also work with a color palette that matches your home style.

Warm for Traditional Homes

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Brown

Cool for Modern Homes

  • Green
  • Blue
  • Purple
  • Gray

It’s also important to consider your home’s outdoor materials, as well as the North Carolina climate. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t drawn in heat as fast.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make an interesting 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.

Avoid using red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the house.

Stucco

Choose interesting colors for your window trim, since you can easily paint stucco a coordinating hue.
