How to Choose Window Frame Color

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

This year’s most loved 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 numerous different shades available, how do you choose the right one?

Our design professionals at Pella of South Portland 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 style in mind when picking a window frame color.

White and black work with pretty much any design style. Black is especially noteworthy for industrial- or farmhouse-style homes, making windows a breathtaking 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 spaces.

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 outdoor materials, as well as the South Portland weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t absorb heat as quickly.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make an interesting 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.

Stay away from red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the wall.

Stucco

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