Black window frames are typically seen on modern homes, and it’s easy to see why people would think it’s unsuitable for other home styles. However, they work in virtually any style, and if you’re considering passing on black window frames, read on as Blackstone Exteriors discusses the things that they can do for your home.
1. Hide imperfections. If you have kids and pets in your household, you’ve probably had to spend time and money trying to fix scratches on your trim, baseboards, and window frames. While black window frames are not scratch-proof, they are certainly better at hiding them compared to most colors and finishes, which can help take a load off your home maintenance tasks. The only catch with dark surfaces — black window frames included — is that dust is more visible on them, which means you still need to dust every now and then.
2. Add energy. Black frames add boldness and energy akin to hanging a stark black-and-white art piece on a plain white wall. They add punctuation to an otherwise plain-looking exterior. Black window frames work especially well in homes with high ceilings because they create a line for the eyes to follow, and therefore can draw attention to the ceiling when placed in the right areas.
3. Frame a view. A dark-colored frame draws the eyes to its center — it’s the reason why devices with screens like televisions and smartphones tend to have black bezels. This makes windows with black frames the best kind of windows for framing a beautiful view.
4. Create a timeless feel. As we’ve mentioned in our introduction, black window frames are typically seen in modern-style homes. But they’re actually not, and you might be surprised at how flexible black window frames can be. Being a neutral color, it’s not bound to any specific color palette, which can give you more latitude with your overall exterior color palette.
