When it comes to improving the look of your home, window trim isn’t usually the first thing to pop into people’s minds – but it should be! Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t consider their window trim when thinking about home improvement. Window trim, and white window trim in particular, can greatly improve the appearance of a home – making replacement windows standout or otherwise plain siding look more elegant. So – how can you make the most of your white trimmed windows? Read on to find out.
- Visual Impact – Entryways and small windows can appear to be much larger than they actually are when paired with oversized white trim or crown molding. Tiny kitchen or bathroom windows look bigger when surrounded by white trim. If you’re thinking about adding a bay or bow window to your home, white trim can make it look brighter and more inviting. Adding splashes of white throughout a room brighten it and help to diffuse sunlight.
- The Minimalist Look – White trim is clean, simple, and elegant to look at. Because of this, it helps to accentuate other elements of design. White trimmed windows next to a modern painting or a surrounding a wooden exterior door with a nice stain can look great together if done correctly. White trimmed windows with white interior walls create a modern look that lets your guests focus on a piece of art or other creative centerpiece in a room.
- Opposites Attract – Do you have dark siding or dark paint on your interior walls? White trim is a great way to brighten up the room and add some much needed contrast to your home’s design. White trim works with a variety of dark shades, like olive green, dark grey, and navy blue. When selecting your window trim, make sure it has molded-in colors. This way it won’t fade over time and will still look great as the years roll by. All windows sold my Mr. Rogers are available in a white finish.
- Cool Colors Work, Too – White trim isn’t only good for adding contrast, it can look great with cooler colors and pastels! However, it’s a bit more difficult to match with the perfect color. If you paint a room in a color that is very neutral, it can make a room look bland. This is why you should come prepared when choosing the colors for a room. Always bring a color swatch with you – and make sure it’s a physical one you can hold in your hand. Colors may appear differently than they do in the real world when viewed on your smartphone or laptop!
