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.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
