Tips for Selecting the Ideal Window Frame Color to Complement Your Home Exterior

When selecting replacement windows for your home, keep in mind that they should complement both the interior and exterior look of your home. Do not underestimate the value that curb appeal can add to your home. If you ever plan on selling, many prospective buyers will decide whether or not to view your house based on their first impression of the exterior. Use the guide below to select a color to match your home’s siding and architectural style: Colored Siding

If your home features colored vinyl siding, you should choose a contrasting color for your home’s exterior window trim. Matching the siding too well will create a bland, flat look. Use classic white to complement darker or bolder colors. Reversing the color scheme and highlighting a light siding color with dark windows can create a dramatic look, too.

Exposed Brick

Though brick has a reddish-brown hue, its color is relatively neutral. Avoid using dark reds and browns, because they are too similar in color to the bricks. Black will not match either. Houses that feature unpainted brick exteriors will look good with bright white windows, or lighter shades of blue or green.


Since you can paint stucco any color, you may wish to choose neutral window frames in white, black, or a light brown that will work well with multiple color schemes. If you choose bright colors such as green or red, keep in mind that you should only paint your house complementary or contrasting colors. Stucco allows you to use much bolder exterior color schemes if you wish, including green windows to complement a purple or orange house, or blue windows on a yellow exterior.
