How to Choose Window Frame Color

The beginning of fall is a perfect time to change out your windows and doors. And add a bold pop of color inside and outside your Kalamazoo space.

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

But with many different shades available, how do you choose the perfect fit?

Remember Your Home’s Style

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

White and black work with nearly any design style. Black is especially striking for industrial- or farmhouse-style homes, making windows a breathtaking focal point.

Contrasting trim colors make windows stand out in a traditional home. Matching trim colors that blend in are well-suited for modern- or contemporary-style spaces.

You can also work with a color palette that goes with 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 Kalamazoo average temperature. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t drawn in heat as rapidly.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make a bold statement with contrasting colors. Choose 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, exceptionally for painted brick or neutral stone.

Hold off on red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the wall.

Stucco

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