Black window frames are on-trend at the moment, looking fantastic from the exterior. They are bold and beautiful, and when you inside your home, they play an important role in framing the outside world.

Variations of black window styles have been used in homes across Europe for centuries. However, they are now being adopted for use in contemporary and modern spaces. They can bring contrast to a flat exterior design or seamlessly match interior hanging black light fittings, internal doors, handrails, banisters, and kitchen worksurfaces.

Black window frames won’t work in every home, so you should carefully consider if restructuring your colour pallet and opting for a monochrome scheme the right thing for you.

Why Black Window Frames

If you are undertaking a home renovation, remodelling your floorplan, or building a new home from the ground up, then black window frames are an option. They will look sharp against a home that is painted white, on the inside or outside.

A light interior is considered essential, ensuring your interior space doesn’t become dull and dark. Wall colours that work well include all shades of white and even light grey. When you choose a dark frame colour, your windows will become a central part of your home decor. They are a great way to finish off a room’s design with a sense of style.

Wherever you introduce colour in your home, such as colourful flowers, they pop against the white walls and black window frames. If you are looking for a way to create visual interest and own your curb appeal, then black is the way to go.

Before you make a final exterior design decision, step back and take a few moments to envision the overall design of your house. Remember that you can opt for a different frame colour for the inside and outside portions of the frame in many cases.

If you want an ultra-modern look, then this is a direction you should go with. However, we shouldn’t forget that rustic-inspired homes and farmhouses are also perfect matches for this bold choice.
