“Using colorful accents is a smart way to make a style statement and enhance your home’s exterior.” This is the advice offered by Better Homes and Gardens to anyone who wants to boost curb appeal.
Even if you aren’t getting ready to put your house on the market to sell, you probably want your guests and people driving by to say, “WOW.” Who doesn’t want to come home at night to a house that really welcomes you– from the outside to the inside?
There are many ways to add colorful accents to your home’s exterior. You can paint the shutters, front door or window trim a bold color to set your house apart from the rest. You can add interesting decor like potted plants, a creative mailbox and sculptures. Now, you can go even further and install replacement windows with black frames. There’s no need to deal with the hassle and mess of trying to paint wood frames or grilles when you install vinyl windows that are painted by the manufacturer.
This new window option lets you incorporate accents into the exterior design of your home without worrying that you’ll have to scrape and repaint the frames year in and year out. Because the color is incorporated into the window material, it’s going to remain vibrant and will be more weather-resistant too.
There are so many accent colors to choose from and black is becoming a popular choice. Design experts point out that black isn’t necessarily a gloomy or depressing color. In fact, it can give your home a modern look that conveys a sense of sophistication, power and strength.
Black accents– such as what you’ll get with black window frames– easily complement many other colors like green, gold, silver and white. To make your exterior stand out and command attention, go with black window frames.
Flexibility with dual color frames
If you’re concerned about black window frames clashing with the interior rooms of your home, worry no more. Several window companies have developed dual color frames. These windows are manufactured with one color on the outside frame and a different color on the inside. Click here to find out more about dual color window frames.
You can make the bold statement you want with black frames on the outside and then go with something softer, like ivory, on the inside. Other dual color combinations available include: brown exterior and white or almond interior and silver or gray exterior with a white interior.
Dual color window frames make it easier to fill the interior rooms of your home with the color scheme of your choice as you command attention in a more vibrant way on the outside.
Isn’t it great to know that you have complete flexibility to express your color preferences when you replace your windows?
