Choosing the right windows for your home is not always an easy task. Just as you decide on the style and size you want, it’s time to choose a colour.
With so many colour options available, it doesn’t make the decision any easier. Should you go subtle and traditional? Or, perhaps you should be bold and adventurous?
Before you throw in the towel, our team has compiled a list of things to consider when choosing the right colour for your windows – making the decision that bit easier. Let’s take a look at how you can make the right choice of colour for your home.
Match the colour to the character of your property
A good place to start when deciding the best colour of windows for your home is by first taking into account the style of your home.
The style of your property will greatly influence which window colour will best compliment your home.
If your home is more of a traditional-styled property then classic colours like Chartwell green will tend to be best suited. Whereas, modern properties are more versatile when it comes to colour and you can afford to be more creative with the colour of the windows you choose.
Think about the exterior
Not only is it important to consider the style of your property but what shouldn’t be overlooked is the type/colour of the materials used on the exterior.
The aim is to choose a window colour that blends nicely with the outside of your home and doesn’t look odd or out of place.
Take red brick homes for example. When you think of a traditional brick house, red brick is the colour that commonly comes to mind. This colour of brick is great when choosing a window colour as most colours will suit it.
Darker shades are the perfect choice for this colour of property, as the dark colour offers a rich contrast that compliments the orangey hue of red brick homes. Whereas white brick homes create a blank canvas and gives you the opportunity to be bolder with the colour you choose for your windows. So, when choosing a window colour, take a look at the exterior of your property.
Reflect your personality
They say that you can tell a lot about a person by just looking at their home. Our windows are usually one of the first things people see when visiting, or walking past your home – so it’s important that you make an impression.
The colour of your windows should reflect your own personality and personal tastes. You may not realise it, but a window colour can completely transform the appearance and atmosphere of your home.
For example, for a classic and sophisticated look, grey windows are the ones to go for. Whereas, yellow windows create a warm and welcoming aesthetic. Whatever your style, the colour of your windows should be a reflection of you.

As you can see, there are a lot of things to consider that go into choosing a window colour. However, picking a window colour should be a fun process and a chance to experiment with different colours. Sometimes playing it safe isn’t the best choice.
