Homeowners are exploring new window colors to give their home a boost in curb appeal. Traditionally homeowners would install vinyl windows and paint them later, but with new window offerings, you can get high-quality windows in almost any shade to complement your home. If you’re looking for the best window color for your home, consider these top 2018 window trends.
- Matching Colors – Some homeowners are opting for a more streamlined look where the windows almost blend in with the home’s exterior. Replacing your windows with ones that match or are the exact color of your home’s siding or brick can create a unique look for your home.
- Contrasting Colors – Finding complementary window colors to help your siding or exterior stand out can be a great way to add an extra touch of color to your home. For example, if your home has a taupe color, installing red windows can really make your home’s exterior come to life. Likewise, using light-colored windows with dark siding or vice versa can be a popular choice too.
- Non-Traditional Colors – Most windows are often offered in neutral colors or white. But, homeowners have been purchasing bolder colors like greens, blues, even violets. The key is to consider your home’s exterior and how a bold color for your windows may clash (or fit in) with your neighbor’s homes.
- Neutral Colors with Decorative Accents – If you’d rather stick with a more conservative or conventional look for your replacement windows, then adding ornate accents or trim colors can be an attractive option. Or, you may choose a neutral window color but upgrade your siding to a bolder or contrasting color. Using sandstone and charcoal gray trim have become popular colors for homeowners.
When choosing a window color it is important to consider how dirt gravitates to your home, especially your windows. For example, if you live in a dusty or dirt-prone area then using window colors and trims that can mask the dirt can be helpful, unless you want to regularly wash your windows and trim. Likewise, if you’re looking to help your home stand out, then avoiding colors that are already prominent in your neighborhood may be best.
