How to Choose Window Frame Color

The beginning of fall is a great time to change out your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Asheville space.

This year’s most fashionable 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 numerous different shades available, how do you pick the best one?

Our design experts at Pella of Asheville can help you choose the right color to complete your home. We’ll go over your options and prepare you with a no-obligation quote—all from the ease 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 dramatic focal point.

Contrasting trim colors make windows stand out in a traditional home. Matching trim colors that blend in are best for modern- or contemporary-style houses.

You can also choose a color palette that matches 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 building materials, as well as the Asheville average temperature. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t allow in heat as fast.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make a bold statement with contrasting colors. Choose 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.

Avoid using red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the stone.

Stucco

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