Interior Design Tips for Selecting Your New Milgard® Windows' Frame Color
Performing some home renovation or building a whole new home? Selecting windows is part of the process and while they aren't the largest part of a house, they have a significant impact on the look and style of the end result. This selection process must account for the window's size, type and style - as well as color. California Replacement Windows in Anaheim is a Milgard® Authorized Dealer and offers the brand's windows with a variety of color options. Here we will provide some tips on how to choose the right window frame color for your home.
Enhance or Disguise with Color
Nice windows should be showcased while those that aren't so attractive should be low-key, so for your new Milgard windows consider selecting frame colors that will make it stand out. For older and worn windows go for white or hues that let them blend with the walls.
Use Bold Hues Selectively
Neutral hues for window frames are a safe choice but going for bold colors add an element of fun to a home, which is an unexpected design option but will help make your home stand out. For balance keep the surrounding color neutral or in a similar color family as the frame.
Consider the Surrounding Décor
If the home's design style is traditional then consider window trim colors that contrast with the house color.
While tan and beige shades were once the go-to neutrals, cooler hues like cool neutrals have become popular. Gray is the main new neutral but shades of black and navy are also ideal choices. Milgard’s Fog, Evening Sky, Black Bean, and Twilight in the Essence Series, or Bronze, Light Grey, or Silver from the Premium Vinyl line will suit any home.
Factor in Climate and Environment
If your surroundings are dusty because it is near freeways or construction sites, then grays and taupes in mid-tones can conceal the dirt while white and light colors will reveal dust and dirt the most. Milgard’s Fog or Harmony in the Essence Series or Tan, Silver, or Light Grey from the Premium Vinyl line work best in camouflaging dirt and grime.
For homes in sunny or hot climates, lighter colors for window frames and the rest of the house will help manage indoor temperature as these colors won't absorb heat or fade as much as darker colors.
