One of the best things about custom windows is that you have a wider selection of frame colors to choose from, which makes it more likely that you’ll find a frame color that appeals to you. In this blog, Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas-Fort Worth takes a look at popular window frame colors and why these colors appeal to certain people.
The color white suggests serenity and cleanliness and creates an open feel, especially when used as the dominant exterior color. For window frames and trim, white is the go-to color when the exterior palette consists of dark or strong colors. It may seem like the most boring window color choice there is, but what it actually shows is that you want your windows to stand out while being in harmony with other colors in your chosen palette. This is why we offer white interior and exterior window frame colors with hardware to match.
Gray conveys a wide spectrum of moods depending on the shade. For instance, mid- to dark-gray portrays intensity, which works well in contemporary designs. Light gray, on the other hand, is similar to white in that it exudes relaxation. As a neutral color, gray works with almost every color palette and any architectural style. Our custom residential windows are available in Sandtone® and Terratone® gray frames.
Brown is another neutral color, but with a warmer, more rustic feel. Together with brown trim, it works best on Mock Tudor as well as Arts and Crafts architectural styles. Brown has become a popular choice for homeowners who prefer the earth-tone color palettes that we offer as part of our standard frame colors, which include Cocoa Bean and Dark Bronze.
Green gives a feeling of freshness and growth reminiscent of spring colors. As a window frame color, green is a great alternative to brown, especially if you want to evoke a more vibrant feel. Our replacement windows are available in Forest Green, which stays vibrant for a long time with minimal maintenance.
Black window frames kindle a sense of mystery and elegance, which is perfect for homes located in urban areas. They also work well in contemporary architecture. One main draw of black window frames is that they add depth by drawing one’s eyes to the viewing area instead of the frames. Black is a recent and popular addition to our frame color selection, which we now offer together with matching black interior color and hardware.
