How to Choose Window Frame Color
Fall is an ideal time to refresh your windows and doors. And add a bold pop of color inside and outside your Mankato space.
This year’s most popular window frame color possibilities include cool neutrals, such as metallics, black and gray. And don’t forget darker earth tones like brown, red and green.
But with many different shades available, how do you select the perfect fit?
Our design experts at Pella of Mankato can help you select the right color to work with your home. We’ll go over your options and prepare 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 selecting a window frame color.
White and black work with nearly any design style. Black is especially outstanding for industrial- or farmhouse-style homes, making windows a dramatic focal point.
Contrasting trim colors make windows stand out in a traditional home. Matching trim colors that blend in are better for modern- or contemporary-style houses.
You can also choose a color palette that matches your home style.
Warm for Traditional Homes
Cool for Modern Homes
It’s also important to consider your home’s exterior materials, as well as the Mankato weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t drawn in heat as fast.
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, especially for painted brick or neutral stone.
Stay away from red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the stone.
Choose striking colors for your window trim, since you can easily paint stucco a coordinating pigment.
