How to Choose Window Frame Color

Fall is a perfect time to replace your windows and doors. And add a bold pop of color inside and outside your St. Paul home.

This year’s most popular window frame color choices include cool neutrals, such as metallics, black and gray. And don’t leave out darker earth tones like brown, red and green.

But with a variety of different shades available, how do you select the perfect fit?

Our design professionals at Pella of St. Paul can help you find the right color to complete your home. We’ll review your options and equip you with a no-obligation quote—all from the comfort of your living room.

Remember Your Home’s Style

Keep your home’s style in mind when choosing a window frame color.

White and black work with pretty much any design style. Black is especially striking for industrial- or farmhouse-style homes, making windows a breathtaking focal point.

Contrasting trim colors let windows stand out in a traditional home. Matching trim colors that blend in are best for modern- or contemporary-style houses.

You can also choose a color palette that matches 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 exterior materials, as well as the St. Paul weather. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t absorb heat as fast.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make a distinct 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.

Avoid using red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the house.

Stucco

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