uPVC window frame colours

Gone are the days when white was the most popular choice of uPVC window colours for most homeowners in Yorkshire.

Nowadays with the option of single or dual colour windows, there is an ever increasing trend with homeowners to choose from a variety of coloured uPVC windows.

Match the exterior of your home

Ranging from ultramodern shades of grey and black, to the Heritage shades of cream, Chartwell green or duck egg blue, homeowners are choosing coloured exterior frames to compliment and match the brick, stone or render finish of their property.

Dual colours

If you are finding yourself considering a dual colour with dark exterior frame colour and want to keep your interior brighter or more vibrant, then opting for a neutral interior colour will enable you to complement your property and your decor.

Grey uPVC windows

A sophisticated and refined colour for the exterior of the modern and classic homes. Anthracite grey windows’ dark shade is a functional colour that advocates a modern architectural aesthetic, whilst executing a remarkable contrast against off white or cream render.

Anthracite grey is more suitable for the more modern window style with minimal frame and large panes of glass, meaning it may not be the most suitable colour for Georgian or leaded windows. Other on-trend shades of grey are Agate grey, Olive grey and French grey, which are all lighter and more subtle shades of grey that add character and charm to classic cottages or period properties.

Black uPVC Windows

Abiding and classic colour oozes finesse and elegance with industrial-inspired architecture that displays no signs of weakening in popularity anytime soon with developers and architects.

Whilst mid-century modern interior decor has been influencing the more simplistic aesthetics and minimalism over the years, many homeowners would find that black window frames appease these current trends, as black has now made an entrance in interiors of homes. Naturally giving the illusion of minimalism, the black frames would draw the eye to the outside view of your property.

Black Aluminium Windows

Home renovation TV programmes such as Grand Designs have commenced an ever increasing trend in aluminium windows for new builds and renovations. They add an extraordinary style and definition to many property styles, ranging from a traditional Country house to a modern penthouse.

Black is simply perfect for accentuating the smooth and simple clean lines of the window frame, whilst also complementing dark brown or red brickwork and natural cladding.

White windows are a preferred choice for leaded and Georgian windows and create an eye-catching opposition against both neutral and bright coloured render for urban and coastal properties.
