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.

The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
