What Makes Black Double Glazed Windows And Doors So Popular

When upgrading the windows and doors at your property, you will have a lot to think about in terms of design. It goes without saying that the products you choose will completely transform the look and feel of your home, so it is important to ensure that you’re installing double glazed windows and doors that are perfect for your surroundings. Arguably, one of the most important things to consider in this regard is colour. 


Traditionally, almost all windows and doors would be a natural brown colour because they were made from timber and then, in more recent years, when uPVC became popular lots of homeowners started installing white windows and doors instead. However, now that material options like composite and aluminium are available, not to mention the option to spray paint any product too, the colour choice available to homeowners really is limitless. 


Whilst you could have green windows and red doors if you wanted to, one of the most popular colours currently available is black. Lots of homeowners are choosing to install black double glazed windows and doors, and below we have looked into some of the reasons why. 

They look elegant and modern 


The way that black frames look is what makes them so popular. They instantly provide a contemporary and luxurious feel to a property, and they can make it stand out for all of the right reasons. Their ease of compatibility with any exterior property design, from traditional brick to modern cladding, makes them the first choice for lots of homeowners these days. 


They are easy to maintain 


Unlike natural wooden windows and doors or white uPVC windows and doors, when you opt for a darker colour, general wear and tear is less visible. Lots of homeowners are drawn to black composite, aluminium or even uPVC products because they look amazing all year round and they don’t have to regularly clean the frame to prevent them from looking dirty and tatty. 


They can blend in 


Whilst some homeowners will contrastingly pair black double glazed windows and doors with a light colour home exterior, they also work brilliantly at properties with darker exteriors too. Black frames can blend in really well at converted barns, for example, and they prevent the windows and doors from looking out of place. They can be less harsh than stark white alternatives. 


They work at any property 


Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t only modern new build properties that darker frames look good at and it isn’t uncommon for them to be found at cottages, farmhouses and period properties too. They are more versatile than people initially realise and homeowners opt for them because they will complement their home’s surroundings, whatever they may be. 


They add to the interior design 


Of course, your window frames change the way that the interior of your property looks too and lots of homeowners love how much of a difference black double glazed windows and doors can make in this regard. No matter what your interior design colour scheme may be, you can easily incorporate the darker frames into it and they can enhance the look of the inside of your home.


They suit all window and door styles 


Whether you’re wanting a black front door or black bi-folding doors, black casement windows or black tilt and turn windows, they will look amazing. This darker frame works well with all styles and designs, and it is also the perfect base for any type of hardware too. Homeowners like the fact that having black frames opens up so many design options for them. 


Purchasing double glazed windows and doors 


All in all, it is fair to say that whilst brown and white might be the most traditional colour options available for windows and doors, it is easy to see why so many homeowners are opting for a more controversial black colour these days. It is undeniably worthwhile considering the different colour options available to you if you’re wanting to upgrade the windows and doors at your home and you never know, something less traditional might complement your home best.
