How to Choose Window Frame Color

Autumn is an ideal time to replace your windows and doors. And add a modern pop of color inside and outside your Hingham home.

This year’s most popular 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 select the right one?

Our design professionals at Pella of Hingham can help you choose the right color to work with your home. We’ll review your options and provide you with a no-obligation quote—all from the convenience 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 outstanding 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 better for modern- or contemporary-style spaces.

You can also choose a color palette that goes 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 outdoor materials, as well as the Hingham weather. 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 bold 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, exceptionally for painted brick or neutral stone.

Avoid using 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 pigment.
