3 Tips on Choosing a Color for Your Window Frame

When you call on the services of Renewal by Andersen® for a new window installation, there’s one more thing you need to think about, and that’s your window frame colors. Many property owners start to feel confused at this point. Should they go with something tried and true, or should they be a bit gutsy?

And how do you then integrate the frame color to your home’s overall color? Here are some tips to consider.

Think About What You’re Trying to Achieve

The first challenge in choosing the ideal color for your window frame is recognizing what you are trying to create. If you just prefer stylish windows that fuse seamlessly with the rest of your home, then a neutral color is best for your frames. For period property owners who want to preserve their home’s design charm, sticking with the original color palette can be the best choice.

Look Around You

If you’re still unsure about what hues to choose for your window frames, look around and get inspiration from other properties. Whether you live in a countryside or in a small town, you will definitely find homes that match yours in terms of design and materials. This is an effective way of identifying what you do and do not like.

Consider the Climate and Environment

If you live in an area where dust and dirt accumulate easily, remember that taupes and grays hide dirt best. Very light or dark colors tend to show dust the most so make sure not to choose these colors. Your best bet is to call the services of Renewal by Andersen® for a quality service. In addition to offering quality replacement windows, we can help you come up with the ideal color that will suit your style.

Windows can add interest to your home’s facade, so consider all your color options before making a decision. Our experts at Renewal by Andersen® have the tools and experience to get you the windows your property deserves and install them for you the most reliable way.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
