How to Choose Window Frame Color

The beginning of fall is a great time to change out your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Evansville home.

But with a variety of different shades available, how do you pick the right one?

Consider Your Home’s Style

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

White and black work with nearly any design style. Black is especially outstanding 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 better for modern- or contemporary-style houses.

You can also choose 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 exterior materials, as well as the Evansville average temperature. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t absorb heat as quickly.

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 house.

Stucco

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