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.

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.

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."
