WINDOW AND DOOR COLOR TIPS FOR A HARMONIOUS HOME EXTERIOR

Window and door colors are relatively small details with a major visual impact in curb appeal. If you choose the wrong hues, it can be difficult and costly to correct your errors.

Window Door Color Tips Harmonious Home Exterior

To help you round out your exterior color palette for home remodeling, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis shares some practical advice:

Conform to Tradition

If you’re timid about selecting your window and door exterior colors based on your gut feeling alone, it’s best to follow the norm. Most architectural styles, traditional and modern, have quintessential accent hues that highlight their character.

Capes usually use forest green, while Georgian- and Federal-style units typically come in s andtone. Considering the factory-like design of Industrial Modern dwellings, their windows and patio doors are generally black on the outside. Tudor-style homes, on the other h and, are better off with red rock, cocoa bean, or dark bronze, reminiscent of wood elements.

Tie Everything Together Using Window Color

The usual purpose of window and trim colors is to connect every hue in the palette. They should complement the look of your roof, siding, and even hardscaping. Neutrals are your safest bet but don’t use shades of white or beige if they don’t make sense for your exterior design.

Match Window and Trim

A good rule of thumb is to pick the same color for your window frame and trim. A similar hue would avoid creating a jarring effect and make these architectural features more prominent from the street.

Choose a Separate Hue for the Door

In most cases, doors contrast with all other exterior hues. This is especially necessary when the body of your home is of a subtle neutral color. A striking color would set off your patio doors and help express your personality.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
