Window colour guide

Choosing a Window Frame Colour

With so much choice what colour should you choose for your aluminium windows and upvc windows? That’s the big question and here’s a few ideas to help you decide what colours would suit both your home and your upvc and aluminium windows.

Firstly look at the colour of your house externally, is it red brick, grey brick, sandstone or a render of another colour ? Usually a contrasting colour works best so with red brick paler colour look great like, white woodgrain, cream woodgrain or agate grey.

If, however, you have a sandstone property or a pale render you will likely be able to use a stronger or darker colour like chartwell green or anthracite grey.

You can also look at similar homes in your area, what colour windows do they have in comparison to the property and decide if there a local theme that you would like to replicate.

Internally paler colours like white woodgrain or subtle creams work well as they blend easily with most décor choices. However there are those who like stronger colours on the inside of their aluminium and upvc windows and if you want rosewood, anthracite grey or any other bespoke colour.
