How to Choose Window Frame Color
Autumn is an ideal time to change out your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Eau Claire home.
This year’s most popular window frame color choices include cool neutrals, such as metallics, black and gray. And don’t count out darker earth tones like brown, red and green.
But with a variety of different shades available, how do you select the best one?
Our design specialists at Pella of Eau Claire can help you find the right color to work with your home. We’ll review your options and provide you with a no-obligation quote—all from the comfort of your living room.
Think About Your Home’s Style
Keep your home’s look in mind when picking a window frame color.
White and black work with most any design style. Black is especially striking for industrial- or farmhouse-style homes, making windows a dramatic focal point.
Contrasting trim colors help 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 building materials, as well as the Eau Claire average temperature. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t absorb heat as rapidly.
Vinyl or Wood Siding
Make a distinct statement with contrasting colors. Start with 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 wall.
Choose striking colors for your window trim, since you can easily paint stucco a coordinating hue.
