Small alterations can make a big difference when it comes to the overall appearance of your home, specifically with window customization. By choosing complementary color window frames and trim, you can further enhance your replacement windows with added style. Check out these handy tips when choosing trim and frames.
- Blend or contrast: Decide if you want a trim color that blends perfectly with your interior’s existing color palette, or if you want to go with a contrasting hue to switch things up.
- Choose a trim in a similar shade to your interior walls: When you seamlessly blend the color of your window trim with your wall color, it’s easy to modernize the whole look.
- Stick with different shades of white: If you like to play it safe, go with white trim for a classic yet effective way to offset the interior. Did you know that white window trim gives the room the impression of being clean and neat? Bold colors, when combined with white trim, will accentuate the vibrant elements while offering visual relief at the same time.
- Go dark: Dark window trims offer an interesting focal point to any room. Dark trim works best with paler hues on interior walls because it highlights the contrast between dark and light. Just keep in mind that dark trims are better for large spaces.
- Traditional vs. Modern Styles: You have many options to choose from, depending on the style of your home. Take a traditional style, for instance…the color of the window frame you select should contrast with the other colors of the house. Warm colors, such as reds, yellows, oranges and browns are more traditional. For a more modern style, the color of the window frames should blend in with the colors of the room. Modern colors include cool colors such as blues, greens, purples and grays. White and black will work with either style.
- Home Exterior Color Choices: If your exterior is made of exposed brick or vinyl siding, you may want to go with a more traditional color trim. If your home has a stucco or other type of exterior, go with a more modern trim. It’s best to remain with a neutral window frame color that works with many colors, just in case you ever change the color of your home’s exterior. For neutrals, go with beige, tan or gray.
