How to Choose Window Frame Color

Autumn is a perfect time to refresh your windows and doors. And add a bold pop of color inside and outside your Birmingham house.

Consider Your Home’s Style

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

White and black work with pretty much any design style. Black is especially outstanding for industrial- or farmhouse-style homes, making windows a powerful focal point.

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

You can also select 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 building materials, as well as the Birmingham weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t drawn in heat as quickly.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make a bold 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.

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

Stucco

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