How to Choose Window Frame Color

Autumn is a great time to change out your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Owensboro house.

This year’s most popular window frame color choices include cool neutrals, such as metallics, black and gray. And don’t leave out darker earth tones like brown, red and green.

But with a variety of different shades available, how do you choose the right one?

Our design specialists at Pella of Owensboro can help you select the right color to complete your home. We’ll go over your options and equip you with a no-obligation quote—all from the convenience of your living room.

Remember Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s décor 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 powerful 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 houses.

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 exterior materials, as well as the Owensboro weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t absorb heat as fast.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make an interesting 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, exceptionally for painted brick or neutral stone.

Stay away from 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 pigment.
