Choosing the Right Window Colour


How important is window colour when it comes to exterior (and interior) design? The answer is very. It sets the tone for the rest of your aesthetic and can have a major impact on other style decisions.

How do you know which colour is right?

There is a lot to take into account when it comes to window colour. Thankfully, the fantastic Maria Killam recently wrote a blog on the topic to serve as your guide. If you’re planning a window upgrade of your own, use this helpful tool to decide which colour is right for your own home and personal style.

“I recommend creating a plan for your colours and finishes BEFORE choosing the window colour. Don’t just default to white or black windows.

I had a client early in the black and white trend whose contractor went ahead and ordered 40K of Almond (green beige) windows based solely on wild assumptions. This window colour choice impacted ALL other colour decisions for her exterior and led her directly into a much earthier (brown and beige) colour scheme than she had in mind.

She called my eDesign department in a panic.
