Are Black Window Frames a Good Choice?

Trendy, but timeless black window frames are all the rage, but are they the right choice for your home? New black trim windows can make a statement, increase curb appeal, be period appropriate, create instant elegance, or bring a modern feel to your house. That said, black windows aren’t necessarily the best choice for all homeowners.

Your windows are a prominent part of your color scheme, so if your design style leans more towards a Danish pastel aesthetic or if you prefer an earthy color scheme, black windows may not be for you. If you’re not a fan of black décor’, windows with black frames may not be for you.  

Not sure if black windows are the right choice for your home or style? Here are some reasons why new windows with black trim may be right for your home.

Black Windows can Make a Statement

Black is a bold color. It’s an excellent choice for accentuating the frames of your windows and making them stand out from the rest of the house. If you have a white or light-colored home exterior, black windows can provide a contrast that can create serious drama and style. In a contemporary home, black window frames make a sophisticated modern statement, while in a traditional design black trim windows can stand out as classic and elegant.

Black Windows can Increase Curb Appeal

“Curb appeal” is how a home looks from the outside, in other words from the street curb. You only have one chance to make a first impression, whether, for a guest, a new neighbor, or a potential buyer, the initial look of your house is important. After all your home is a reflection of you as well as an important investment.

Increasing your home’s curb appeal is always something to keep in mind when making any home renovation or replacement decisions. Windows can make a statement, elevating your home’s curb appeal by updating the style and giving it a more modern appearance. While not the right choice for all homes, black vinyl windows in the right setting can make your home not only look updated but on-trend.

Black Windows can be Period Appropriate

Dark window frames can create a contemporary look and are an excellent choice for a home with a chic modern style.  But black vinyl windows aren’t just for ultra-contemporary or urban-style homes.  We have also seen black window frames become a popular choice for owners of farmhouse owners who want to add drama to the classic style of their homes. Also, Victorian era homes where the fascia, gutters, and wood trim are also black as well as the window frames. Have a Mid-Century Modern home? Black is a distinct, sleek, and natural color, that can be a perfect fit for this style.
