How to Choose Window Frame Color

The beginning of fall is a perfect time to replace your windows and doors. And add a bold pop of color inside and outside your Calgary house.

This year’s most loved 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 numerous different shades available, how do you choose the perfect fit?

Our design experts at Pella of Calgary can help you choose the right color to complement your home. We’ll review your options and provide you with a no-obligation quote—all from the ease of your living room.

Consider Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s décor in mind when selecting a window frame color.

White and black work with nearly any design style. Black is especially striking 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 houses.

You can also choose 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 Calgary climate. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t allow in heat as rapidly.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make an interesting 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.

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

Stucco

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