How to Choose Window Frame Color

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

Consider Your Home’s Style

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

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

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

You can also select a color palette that corresponds 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 Southern Pines weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t drawn in heat as fast.

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, especially for painted brick or neutral stone.

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

Stucco

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