Window replacement is an exciting project that can enhance the beauty of your home in various ways. But before your contractor could begin the vinyl window installation process, there are a few decisions that you need to make with regards to the look of your new windows.
Your window trim, for instance, should have the right colors to complement your home on both the interior and exterior. In this post, Timberland Exteriors shares a few essential tips on selecting interior and exterior window trim colors.
Traditional or Modern?
When choosing colors for your window trim, you can start by considering your home’s architectural style and your personal style. Some manufacturers can offer custom colors, so feel free to choose a palette that suits your taste, your home and your neighborhood. Using the color palette you’ve created, you can limit your options and ensure that the colors you’re going to select will go well together.
Generally, warm colors such as reds, browns, oranges and yellows suit traditional-style homes. Meanwhile, cooler tones such as blues, greens, grays and purples look great on modern homes.
Don’t Try So Hard to Keep Up With the Trends
Designing your home based on the current trends can be fun. But when it comes to your windows, it might be best to stick with colors that can stand the test of time. If you have wood windows, make sure that you’ll be able to replicate the color in the event that repainting is needed.
Of course, you’re free to select bold colors for your windows. However, choose them wisely. Bold or bright hues are generally a great way to grab attention. And if such colors are really your style, remember to use neutrals on the surrounding colors. If you’re also planning a vinyl siding installation project, you can consider choosing a color for your new siding and using a more subtle shade on your windows.
Own Your Color Choices
If you’re keen on playing with colors for your window trim, go ahead and make sure to own it. Consider the overall look and feel of your home’s exterior and interior, and find ways how you can make the most of the window trim colors that you’ve chosen.
