One of the best aspects of owning a home is fully making a space your own. Homeowners don’t have to fit into a specific box. Many styles, colors, and materials exist for every element of your home—windows included.
If you’re in need of replacement windows, don’t fall into the pattern of choosing the previous window style and materials you already had. Now is the perfect time to move toward a different trend and put your personal stamp on your home with Kelly Window & Door.
Black window frames are an increasingly popular window trend that can help you do just that.
Are Black Windows a Modern Trend that Won’t Last?
While black windows are seeing a resurgence in popularity, they are by no means a modern concept, although they do modernize a home. Black windows were originally used in the industrial era in factories or warehouses. The color choice was then adapted for residential use in the early 20th century, due to its bold contrasts and forgiving nature.
They are a classic yet contemporary trend that we don’t see going anywhere for a long time.
Why We Love Black Window Frames
We love installing beautiful windows for homeowners. Black frame windows are one of our favorite choices for a few reasons.
Breaks Away from Conventional White
Your options as a homeowner don’t have to be limited to white window frames. While white frames are timeless and beautiful, they can also become commonplace. Black windows provide a traditional and timeless look as well, but they veer from the redundant pattern of most homes.
Black windows flow impeccably with modern colors and designs. The popular white home trend coupled with black windows is far more eye-catching and aesthetically appealing. They make a statement from the street and don’t just blend in with your home’s exterior.
Flows with Many Interior and Exterior Color Palettes
Windows are one of those home items that must be considered from both an interior and exterior perspective. Their style, color, and shape must all be considered from both sides. Black makes the color part of the equation easy. It goes with everything while also providing a bold statement.
Makes Your Windows Statement Pieces
Black is perhaps the boldest of all colors. So rather than feeling muted and simple, you can make your windows stand out as a statement feature in your home, especially when you invest in beautiful custom windows!
Matches Your Decor
Black not only goes with every color, but it is a commonly used shade in interior décor. If you see hints of black in your furniture or decorations, black can help tie your home’s exterior into your interior design colors.
Matches Other Home Elements
Black is also being used more for in-home features like hardware, appliances, fireplaces, doors, and tiles. Connecting these elements through a punchy color like black makes them stand out while creating cohesion and simplicity in a space.
Home Styles That Work Well with Black Windows
Many homes in Raleigh have a classic feel. Black replacement windows are a great way to update your home while complementing its style.
The traditional home style is one of the most popular in Raleigh. But classic homes are seeing a trend of becoming less stuffy, so to speak, and more modern. Black accents like windows are a great way to achieve this.
The clean aesthetic of a modem home means clean lines and a simple color palette. Slender black window frames are the perfect match for this home style. They are also a popular stylistic choice that can increase resale value.
The modern farmhouse is overtaking the farmhouse design trend. While shabby chic is still a part of the design style, homeowners are now seeking a more tailored look for their homes with aged farmhouse elements. And black window frames create a less traditional, yet clean and classic look for any farm home.
Modernize your townhouse with black windows. This trend is incredibly popular in larger cities like New York and Chicago, as it transforms a townhouse into a tailored home.
Contemporize the space without taking away any character. Consider adding white trim around the black frame for even greater visual impact and character.
Traditional French country homes have an old-world feel. They utilized arched window frames that mimic the wrought iron details seen in their architecture. Black frames create that old-world feel while making a home fit today.
Mediterranean architecture is yet another style that utilizes beautiful and ornate iron. Black is the perfect complement to the warm colors and materials used in this home style.
This style relies on touches of juxtaposition, sleek lines, organic materials, and geometric shapes. Black is both contrasting, sleek, and a natural color, making it a perfect fit for this style.
