How to Choose Window Frame Color

The beginning of fall is a great time to refresh your windows and doors. And add a bold pop of color inside and outside your South Burlington house.

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

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

Our design professionals at Pella of South Burlington can help you find the right color to complete your home. We’ll go over your options and equip you with a no-obligation quote—all from the comfort of your living room.

Remember Your Home’s Style

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

White and black work with most any design style. Black is especially noteworthy 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 better for modern- or contemporary-style houses.

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 exterior materials, as well as the South Burlington climate. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t allow in heat as rapidly.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make a distinct statement with contrasting colors. Use 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, particularly 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 striking colors for your window trim, since you can easily paint stucco a coordinating color.
