Black windows have been popular for a very long time, thanks to the sleek style they can bring to any home. If you are thinking about updating your home with new windows, we think black is a great choice. Here are a few things to think about if you want to work out if black windows will work for you!
Contrast – for ideal modern living spaces
Black windows create the perfect contrast between light-coloured interiors and exteriors.
Think back to 1920s art deco styles – bold black and white patterns created fashionable contrasting pieces, and could be found anywhere – from floors to walls!
What sort of home styles will black windows suit?
Black windows offer a bold style choice and can seriously enhance a range of homes – both those that are more traditional and contemporary. Black windows really help to make your windows ‘pop out’ – and therefore give your home a new lease of life.
Really, it all boils down to your style preference. If you are worried that they won’t look right, take a look at neighbouring houses, or those that are similar to yours in character; do they have bold window colours?
Will they be too bold?
If you are worried about black windows being, well, too dark, then fear not. Opt for a white trim on the sash, and this will help to create a more subtle aesthetic – and will add appealing character to the exterior of your home.
Internally, if you are worried that black windows won’t fit in with the rest of the design, you can pay a little more for dual colouring.
Maintenance made easier
The beauty of black windows is that they stay looking sleek, clean and stylish – regardless of age and weather conditions.
Whereas dated white windows have a higher risk of discolouring, black windows will ooze style for decades to come.
