4 Great Benefits of Black Window Frames for NY Homeowners

When you purchase replacement windows for your Long Island, NY home, one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make is to decide what color to choose for your window frames. You don’t have to choose only plain boring white like everybody else. Window frames from Renewal by Andersen come in many colors, including a striking, rich black. The color of your window frames can dramatically impact the appearance of your home, including its curb appeal from outside and your décor on the inside.

Black has become a popular window frame color for good reason – it creates a high-contrast look, coordinates well with other colors and overall can add value to the right kind of home. Below, we’ve listed the reasons to consider black for your home’s replacement windows.

#1. High Contrast Window Frames Create a Striking Interior Decor

Black window frames featured against white or light colored walls makes for a high-contrast style that is both beautiful and interesting. This contrast draws attention to the windows and provides visual interest that seems sophisticated as well as elegant.

This works especially well in rooms that feature a lot of white and light colors such as light gray or light blue. Leaving your black window frames to be the darkest color in the room creates a geometric frame that’s beautiful to behold.

#2. Black Coordinates Well with Neutral Interior Decor

Black coordinates well with neutral colors like gray, beige, brown, cream and white. These colors are often used in homes because they’re easy to mix and match with other neutrals, and they’re also easily combined with bolder colors.

Installing black window frames in your home means that your windows should continue to match your home decor for years to come, no matter how many transitions your home decor goes through over the years. Like a little black dress or a black suit, your windows will not stand in the way of your ability to style or accessorize your house.

#3. Black Window Frames are Good for Home Staging

Home staging is important if you’re trying to sell your house or impress guests. Stylish black window frames make home staging easier because they’re sophisticated. Black window frames go well with a variety of window dressings, can be easily matched to a variety of home decor styles and also draw attention to your lovely windows, making them a feature to behold.

#4. Black Window Frames Easily Frame Exterior Views

If you’ve got beautiful views outside your windows, why not flaunt them? Black window frames draw a line around your exterior landscaping and any other views outside your home, making them living artwork. Framing the exterior landscape in this way creates a focal point you can enjoy every day when you’re spending time in your home.
