How to Choose Window Frame Color

Fall is an ideal time to change out your windows and doors. And add a modern pop of color inside and outside your Eau Claire house.

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 choose the best one?

Our design specialists at Pella of Eau Claire can help you find the right color to complement your home. We’ll go over 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 style 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 make 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 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 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 drawn in 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, particularly for painted brick or neutral stone.

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

Stucco

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