You know you’ve been admiring all those home renovations or new homes that with the black windows but thinking, that would never work for our home, it’s too traditional. Look again, those black window sashes and frames are installed in all types of homes, craftsman, farm, ranch and yes, modern. For many manufacturers black is offered as a standard color and for virtually all manufacturers black, even multiple shades of black come as finishing options for your interior, exterior or both.
Follow These Five Tips When Selecting Black Windows
Consider choosing matte black hardware to keep the clean look of black.
Explore your options for shades of black as it varies by window manufacturer.
Decide early in the process if you want both the interior and exterior of your windows black or two different colors as this will make a difference in the window series you can choose from.
Black finish looks very different depending on the window material, aluminum, wood, clad, fiberglass or vinyl. Be sure you look at the finish in different lights, including direct light to get the finish you want.
Pay attention to the sash widths to get the look you want. Narrower sashes will recede and the eye will go to the view, while wider black sashes will make a statement.
