In the past, when it came to windows, you could have any colour you wanted, as long as it was white :-). Well times have moved on and there is now a much wider choice available. This means you can now choose a colour that best suits your property. In this post I will be looking at how this change came about as well as a look at some examples of coloured windows.
Over the last decade there has been a transformation in the look of windows and doors that are used in homes. This significant change is of course, colour. Architects behind commercial buildings have for many years selected the colour for windows and doors as this is something that makes a significant difference to the aesthetics of such buildings (you wouldn’t expect to see bog standard white windows or doors on such buildings).
The change is such that using a colour is now the preferred choice. As it turns out, grey is said to be the most popular choice. Grey windows (and doors) have seen a massive surge in popularity in recent years.
This change is said to have started with architects in commercial buildings and modern homes which has then been adopted across the industry. Showrooms are increasingly embracing colour with the availability of coloured products becoming much easier.
This shows that tastes and buying habits are changing and it looks like the move towards coloured windows is set to continue for the foreseeable future.
Looking at some examples taken from Dolphin Windows, I love the striking red of the frame on the left in the picture above. Of course I appreciate that this may not be to everyone’s taste, but I love red and I think this gives a warm feel to the property. It’s important to remember that you can’t just pick any colour and expect this to work, what’s suitable for one property could look ghastly on another! I also love the other red in the frame on the right. This is a rosewood red, which with a different finish to the one on the left gives it a completely different, I would perhaps say a more classical, look.
I also like the contrast of the darker frames in the picture above. Using this as an example, white frames would just clash with the colour of the walls of the property.
Do you like coloured window frames? Have you used coloured windows in your property? What colour/finish do you like? Please leave a comment as I would love to read your thoughts.
