How to Choose Window Frame Color

Autumn is a great time to refresh your windows and doors. And add a contemporary pop of color inside and outside your Paducah space.

This year’s most fashionable window frame color options include cool neutrals, such as metallics, black and gray. And don’t forget darker earth tones like brown, red and green.

But with a variety of different shades available, how do you choose the right one?

Our design professionals at Pella of Paducah can help you select the right color to complete your home. We’ll explain your options and equip you with a no-obligation quote—all from the convenience 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 nearly any design style. Black is especially outstanding for industrial- or farmhouse-style homes, making windows a breathtaking 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 spaces.

You can also select 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 Paducah average temperature. 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 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.

Hold off on red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the house.

Stucco

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