Trim color may seem like a minor detail in the grand scheme of things, but it’s nonetheless an important component in rounding out an attractive interior color palette. In fact, your choice of trim color can make or break the beauty of your replacement windows.
To appreciate why some hues work while others don’t, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland talks about the visual appeal of popular choices:
Of all colors, white is the most forgiving. It harmonizes with almost any window frame hue, making it the safest choice. To use it to best effect, though, we recommend pairing it with contrasting hues. Surrounded by deep-colored walls, white makes windows pop. If you want to highlight your stunning dark wood elements, white trim is the perfect solution.
At the other end of the spectrum, black has a similar effect as white on replacement windows, but does so in a bolder fashion. Black trim is an excellent contrasting element and can help energize a predominantly light-colored environment. Black-painted trim lends your space a graphic look, giving your home sophisticated charm.
Gray is a thoughtful trim paint choice when you want to achieve a transitional look. It puts order in an otherwise jarring design where traditional and modern details coexist.
Wood-framed replacement windows matched with wood trim can add rich texture to your interior design. The warmth of woodwork gives any room an inviting vibe. Whether you stain your trims to match other wood elements in your interior or decide to embrace the contrast, the effect will be visually pleasing.
