How to Choose Window Frame Color

Autumn is an ideal time to refresh your windows and doors. And add a modern pop of color inside and outside your Kelowna space.

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

But with a variety of different shades available, how do you select the best one?

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

Remember Your Home’s Style

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

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

Contrasting trim colors make windows stand out in a traditional home. Matching trim colors that blend in are well-suited for modern- or contemporary-style spaces.

You can also work with a color palette that corresponds with 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 Kelowna climate. White and other light, neutral colors can help keep your home cooler, since they don’t absorb heat as rapidly.

Vinyl or Wood Siding

Make a bold statement with contrasting colors. Start with 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, exceptionally for painted brick or neutral stone.

Stay away from red, brown or black with natural reddish brick, since it will blend in with the stone.

Stucco

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