How to Choose Window Frame Color

Fall is a great time to replace your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Terre Haute space.

This year’s most fashionable window frame color options 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 best one?

Our design professionals at Pella of Terre Haute can help you choose the right color to work with your home. We’ll explain your options and equip you with a no-obligation quote—all from the ease of your living room.

Think About Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s style in mind when selecting 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 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 select 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 Terre Haute average temperature. 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 an interesting 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 wall.

Stucco

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