How to Choose Window Frame Color

Autumn is a great time to refresh your windows and doors. And add a bold pop of color inside and outside your Danville home.

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

But with numerous different shades available, how do you choose the best one?

Our design experts at Pella of Danville can help you choose the right color to work with your home. We’ll review your options and prepare you with a no-obligation quote—all from the ease of your living room.

Consider Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s style in mind when choosing 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 breathtaking focal point.

Contrasting trim colors help windows stand out in a traditional home. Matching trim colors that blend in are best for modern- or contemporary-style homes.

You can also work with a color palette that corresponds with 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 Danville 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 a bold 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.

Avoid using 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 color.
