How to Choose Window Frame Color

The beginning of fall is an ideal time to replace your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Lafayette home.

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

But with numerous different shades available, how do you pick the perfect fit?

Our design experts at Pella of Lafayette can help you find the right color to complement your home. We’ll review your options and equip you with a no-obligation quote—all from the comfort of your living room.

Consider Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s look 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 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 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 Lafayette weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t allow in heat as quickly.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make a distinct 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, exceptionally 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 interesting colors for your window trim, since you can easily paint stucco a coordinating hue.
