More and more designers and homeowners are upping their trim and frame game by choosing windows and doors that feature a black exterior and interior. The deep saturation of the dark hue enhances your windows and doors, turning them from a basic home element to an architectural beauty.
Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Louisville and Lexington shares some design tips and ideas on how to incorporate black in your doors, windows and other pieces.
Bring In Some Texture
In the right space, casement windows with a black frame can add serious character, drama and style. This can take your elegant, classic home design to the next level.
Black also works well with modern designs. In the living room, for example, the black frames can perfectly suit an industrial-style interior design. The strong, neutral ebony will look great alongside exposed brick walls, a rough ceiling and pallet or wooden furniture.
Go for Gloss
If your room doesn’t get ample natural lighting, go for black doors and windows that have a high- or semi-gloss finish. The sheen will make the space look brighter by reflecting what light is available. The glossy finish also helps highlight metallic pieces and accents.
Conversely, if the room is well lit, opt for a matte finish to tone down the lights and give it an earthy look. Double-hung windows with a matte black finish, for example, pair well with white walls as well as wood panels.
Blend With the Outdoors
Black window frames can highlight the view and draw the eyes outside. In a plateau, bush land, prairie, lowlands or coastal plain setting, the coal-colored frames blend into the view, while white ones frame the view more starkly.
Stain the Office Dark
Most home offices could benefit from strong, bold décor and furniture. This is why many furniture pieces are dark-stained and why black-framed windows and doors work well in this kind of space. When it comes to window installation, it’s best to keep the colors and pieces simple yet bold, and this usually means choosing simple colors such as brown, black, and white.
