How to Choose Window Frame Color

Fall is a perfect time to refresh your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Westerly 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 pick the best one?

Our design experts at Pella of Westerly 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 ease of your living room.

Think About Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s décor in mind when choosing a window frame color.

White and black work with nearly any design style. Black is especially outstanding 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 well-suited for modern- or contemporary-style homes.

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 outdoor materials, as well as the Westerly climate. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t absorb heat as rapidly.

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, especially for painted brick or neutral stone.

Hold off on red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the stone.

Stucco

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