Think About Your Home’s Style

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

White and black work with pretty much any design style. Black is especially noteworthy 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 houses.

You can also choose 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 Charlotte weather. 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 an interesting statement with contrasting colors. Use 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.

Stay away from 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.
