The style of your property

Whether you have a traditional cottage or a modern townhouse, this alone will play such a vital role in the colour you choose for your replacement uPVC windows. Generally speaking white or light wood frames are more traditional than bright or dark coloured frames which are more stylish. It is essential to check whether there are any restrictions regarding your window colours too.
The colour of your exterior doors
It is important to think about the colour of your exterior doors when you’re replacing your windows. Lots of homeowners will match their door frames to their window frames, so consider whether this is something that you’d like to do. You should also look at the finish of your exterior doors as well, from gloss to matte these different textures can make such a big difference to the look of a product. So, think about which will work best for your new windows.
The interior design of your rooms
Sometimes, replacement uPVC windows are available in dual colours, which simply means the frame colour is different on the interior and exterior. If you’re interested in investing in dual colour windows, then you should also consider the interior design of the different rooms where you’ll be installing new double glazed windows. Whilst white is by far the most popular interior colour choice, so many other colours can work brilliantly, so don’t rule them out straight away.
The colour of your home’s facade
Whenever you’re making changes to the exterior of your home, it is always important to consider the overall look of your property’s facade. It is essential to choose colours that complement your home, as well as its surroundings. For example, consider the colour of the brick/cladding/paint, the roof and also the roofline products. All of these elements come together to make your home aesthetically pleasing, so make sure your window colour works with them.
The different shades available
When you’re considering all of the different window colours available, remember that more often than not, you can get different shades of each colour. For many homes, lighter colours will help their replacement uPVC windows blend into their home’s facade whereas darker shades will make them stand out more. So, think about how much of a feature you’d like your windows to be. Different shades can make a colour look so different, so consider all available options.
