When you get replacement windows in Sacramento, CA, it’s a great time to get a new, fresh color for your home. At the same time, you don’t want to treat the process like an experiment. New windows last for decades and when you get vinyl materials, they can’t be painted. You want to make sure you are going to like the color of your window frames since they are going to be around for the long haul. Here are a few things recent homeowners have done that you might want to repeat.
Match The Trim
Many houses have a certain color on the home itself and another color for trim that goes around the windows. You could simply match the trim of the house in order to streamline the windows into that portion of the house. It’s often nice for the trim and the windows to match, especially if the trim is a classic color like white that will go with the home no matter what color you paint it. If you match the trim in other shades, you will want to make sure you are going to keep that color on the trim or the windows may not fit in well any longer in the future.
Contrast The Trim
Contrast is a big thing right now, especially in modern homes. If you want your windows to stand out, there’s nothing wrong with contrasting against the trim of the house. You could, for example, get black windows to contrast white trim. You could get white windows to contrast with darker trim. Or you could get windows in the same tone of the trim, but in a darker shade to get the same contrast.
Paint The Trim
If your home is due for an update in other ways, you might want to get windows that go well with the overall home color and then paint the trim to look nice with the windows. Trim isn’t that hard to paint and doesn’t take much time, money, or effort. It’s a lot easier way to get a fresh look at your home over painting the whole house. You can decide what window colors you like with the home color and then find a trim that will make the windows really stand out. Highlighting the new windows in that way can make them look even more fresh and new.
It’s a big deal to get replacement windows in Sacramento, CA in a different color than what you have now. You might be surprised at how different your home looks when you see the windows in place. You just want to make sure you will like that difference or you’re stuck with it until you move or until the new windows need to be replaced—which will be decades down the road.
