How to Choose Window Frame Color

Autumn is a perfect time to replace your windows and doors. And add a modern pop of color inside and outside your Baton Rouge home.

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

But with many different shades available, how do you select the perfect fit?

Our design professionals at Pella of Baton Rouge 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 convenience of your living room.

Consider Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s décor in mind when picking 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 breathtaking 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 work with a color palette that goes 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 Baton Rouge weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t drawn in heat as quickly.

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