Guide to choosing coloured windows – black, grey, blue and more!

 Adding colour to your home can help you stamp your personality on the property and bring the space to life.

As @freshome says, “Color sets the mood and the tone of the home – some colours are vivacious and energetic while others are much more calming and relaxing by nature,” Choosing the right colours for your property will help you to create the home you’ve always wanted.

Most people think of walls, soft furnishings, and floors when selecting their colour palette. However, there are a lot of other home features that can benefit from some brightening up.

Something that’s often overlooked when it comes to colour are your window frames. An integral feature of every building, the colour of your window frames will have an impact on both the inside and outside of your property.

Why choose coloured window frames?

The majority of homeowners choose white window frames when glazing their properties. While white is a timeless, classic choice, it doesn’t really stand out from the crowd. If you want your home to turn heads, opting for coloured frames over white is a great way to do it.

A good quality window manufacturer will be able to offer you frames in a variety of tones. Black, grey, and blue are all great shades for window frames, or you can go a little brighter and choose a unique colour for your home. Talk to your window supplier to find out about the different colour options available.

How to choose the right colour for your window frames

As your new windows will stay in place for years, and potentially decades, it’s essential you make the right choice when it comes to colour. The most common colours used in window frames, aside from white, are blue, black, grey, and brown. These dark, attractive tones will add a subtle statement to your home and help your property to look unique.

If you want your property to look clean, and contemporary, grey is a great choice for your window frames. Grey window frames look attractive and stylish and will work with your interior, as well as your exterior, décor.

In contrast, black frames will work with almost all colour palettes. Like grey, black frames look great on modern properties. Use these dark frames to help give your home a sharp aesthetic.

If you opt for brown or blue frames, it’s important to ensure they’ll work with your interior décor before you buy. Brown windows echo the tone of the wood and so can work well with period properties. In comparison, blue window frames can look fantastic on character properties and are evocative of the seaside and coastal regions.
