When it comes to choosing the right window frame colour, most think white is the best option. But with an infinite range of colour choices out there, homeowners have the option to customise their property’s UPVC windows in any way they want.
This can have a dramatic impact on the overall appearance of your property and if you’re deciding on a colour scheme that will look great for years to come, here are a few things to keep in mind.
1. Your Home’s Exterior
A home’s exterior is probably the most important factor to consider when choosing the right window frame colour. You want frames to complement, not clash.
For example a lightly-coloured home would suit darker frame colours for a more striking contrast. Don’t forget about the colour of your doors, interior, garage or fences / walls to see what would work best in unison.
2. The Style & Era of Your Home
The style and era of your home is also important. From its building materials to the shape of the windows, doors and roof; all these architectural elements make a home unique.
If you have a traditional Victorian or Georgian period property, you might want to choose a neutral window frame colour like white or dark brown. But if you have a modern home, you might want to pick contemporary colours like black or grey to create a sense of elegance and drama.
Bolder colours like green, blue or yellow help make a home feel brighter and more vibrant, especially pastel shades for countryside and coastal properties to match their natural surroundings.
3. Your Climate
Depending on the climate of where you live, this could affect your decision in choosing the right window frame colour. In a colder environment, you might want to choose a darker frame colour that will absorb more heat from the sun. But if you live in a warmer environment, a lighter frame colour will reflect heat and keep your home cooler.
4. Gloss, matte or satin finish
Finally, look at the type of finish you want for your window frames. Glossy finishes are typically more reflective, whereas matte and satin finishes tend to be more muted and subtle – the best option for most customers.
Ultimately, the right window frame colour comes down to personal preference, so pick the one that speaks to you the most!
