Choosing the Right Window Trim Color & Style

new windows and window trimMost homeowners recognize that their interior window trim should coordinate with the trim in the rest of the room both in style and color. However, few realize that replacing windows sometimes means new exterior window trim. Both interior and exterior window trim serves a purpose beyond just looks.

Purpose of Your Window Trim

Inside your home your window trim covers the gap between the wall and the window itself. It helps keep drafts out of your home and gives your window a finished look. Outside your home, the window trim provides a layer of protection against the elements and pests. Your exterior window trim also ties your windows and siding together aesthetically.

The Right Color and Style is Key

When you and your replacement window company begin discussing the color of your window frames, ask about your window trim too. The style often reflects the style of the home. For example, a ranch style home will often have plain and simple trim. An older historic home may have a more elaborate style trim.

The right color is a matter of personal taste. Many homeowners want their windows to look similar to the rest of the home so they choose a trim color that matches the rest of the home’s trim. Another choice is to go a shade lighter or darker than the color of your windows for added dimension. This choice keeps the home’s color scheme well-coordinated while adding simple visual interest. Of course, it really does come down to personal preference and style for your window trim.
