Make a Modern Statement with Black Windows
Is it a Trend?
Black windows are not a new trend but they are very in right now. Because they have been popular for a few years already it is safe to assume that they will not go out of style anytime soon. That means that they are a great option for your new windows.
Having black windows installed will give your home a modern look. They offer many great design options and are ideal for a variety of house styles, with everything from farmhouse to industrial home. They are a wonderful option both as replacement windows or in new builds.
Black frames for windows make a bold statement and can complement modern design ideas. They can easily be combined with different interior and exterior colors. Black windows can contrast beautifully with lighter colors on walls and furniture.
Additionally, black window frames can fit in with any room. No matter if you want a modern dining room with large black picture windows, casement windows in your breakfast nook and kitchen or custom windows in your entry way, everything is possible with these windows.
When you choose black windows, you will break with predictability. The vast majority of windows are still white, even though black windows are more popular than they used to be. However, black windows are less expected and will make your home stand out in the best possible way.
Black Windows Do’s and Don’ts
One of the do’s with black window frames is to leave them uncovered, whenever possible. They look best uncovered or with neutral-colored drapes or shades. That might not be practical in every room but it really does accentuate the black best. There are numerous options for coverings when needed as well.
Another thing that is definitely one of the do’s is to repeat the black in the interior decoration. The black windows look best when you also have black design elements in the room itself. They complement each other very well and then you can contrast it with walls, furniture, etc.
The biggest don’t when it comes to black windows is to paint white vinyl windows black. We never advise anybody to do that. Vinyl windows contract and expand over time. That means that the paint underneath might get exposed and the paint on top will not look good anymore. It might look good at first but it will not last long. Better to have new black windows installed and not paint old ones.
If the siding on your home is dark, black window frames might not be the best choice. It can make your home appear rather dark and monotone. Black windows work best when contrasted with lighter colors, both on the interior and the exterior. Combining black windows with lighter colored siding is a great option.
You do not need to have black on the inside and on the outside of your windows. You can absolutely choose to have the window frames be black on the exterior of your home and a different color, like white, on the interior. There are a number of possibilities and design options available to you.
No matter if you decide to have black or any other colored windows installed, make sure they are from a good manufacturer. We always recommend windows from Simonton, Pella, and Andersen. They offer wonderful black windows and then you can count on the high quality and durability of the windows.
You can find inspiring ideas and design concepts on the webpages of these manufactures as well. Of course, we can also go over the different options you have and guide you on your way to find the right windows for you, your home, and your budget.
Installing new windows quickly pays for itself, especially if they are high quality windows. They are usually very energy efficient and you will immediately notice the savings in your utility bill. New windows have a great ROI and can vastly improve the curb appeal of your home as well.
