Which colour is right for your windows

Every home is different, but it’s important to ensure any new additions to your property are in keeping with its aesthetic. This includes when they’re being incorporated to improve performance, appearance, or simply to make life easier.

Here at Unicorn Windows, we’ve been responsible for many window upgrade success stories. A vital part of our consultation process is to work with our clients to find a solution that complements the style of their home as well as produces the best possible outcome.

There are many factors to consider when upgrading your windows. In addition to determining the style, glazing options, security features and overall energy efficiency, the colour of your windows should be a consideration. Here we take a closer look at the main window frame colours so you can discover a finish that suits your home.


Our bestselling window frame colour, white is a popular choice for good reason. Clean and crisp, white windows are a great option for contemporary homes. However, being selective with your window design can also make them a fitting colour choice for period properties as well.


PVC-U and aluminium windows provide a number of benefits that many traditional, wooden window styles do not, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the classic wooden look and feel.

Available in rosewood and antique oak, our woodgrain window frames are excellent choice for older properties looking to complement their character, or more modern homes looking to add a bit of rustic charm. Our natural wooden shades provide an authentic finish that will make a beautiful architectural statement.

Dark brown and grey

For those looking for a window colour that isn’t the ever-popular white but is less traditional than the woodgrain shades, dark brown, or grey frames may be right for you. These shades provide an original colour palette for period properties, with Tudor homes typically sporting dark frames in greys and browns.


For those looking to add a splash of colour to the exterior of their home and create a uniquely enviable look, our coloured frames deliver the creativity you require. More suited to contemporary style homes, coloured frames can be used to pick up on elements of your property’s surroundings. For instance, homes located close to the sea look great with blue coloured window frames.

At Unicorn Windows, we stock a full range of coloured windows, including red, blue and green frames.
