Trim is one of the most underappreciated elements of design. More than just a covering between surface transitions, the right trim color can bring otherwise disparate elements together. Since patio door and window replacement frames typically have the same color as trim, here are classic and unique trim colors and finishes that work well with replacement windows and patio doors.
Natural Wood Finish
Trim and window frames with visible wood grain have more texture and earthiness than their matte counterparts. If you have a home that’s based on handcrafted components, as in Mountain or Arts and Crafts architecture, replacement windows and patio doors with natural wood finish should be at the top of your list. Our replacement windows, as well as our Frenchwood® and Narroline® patio doors, are all available in stainable pine, oak and maple interior finishes.
Trim with Same Color as the Walls
It may sound plain, but a lot of modern architecture homes have trim that’s the same color as the walls. It works much like a blank canvas by helping draw attention to a centerpiece, like a valuable piece of art or exceptionally-designed furniture. Choosing the same window frame color helps operable windows like gliding windows “melt” into the wall. To add depth to a room, choose a contrasting ceiling color.
Dark trim and frames against light colors is an interior design go-to that never gets old. They add an air of elegance and sophistication. Ornate trim looks best in black, as the texture plays well with reflected light. Dark trim and frames look great as exterior elements as well – dark window frames add a visual depth that draws the viewer’s eyes in. You can choose a dark stain for our interior wood and patio door finishes. We also offer black exterior trim for our replacement windows.
Bright White Trim
White trim is arguably the most common interior and exterior trim color, and for a good reason: it helps bring two dissimilar colors together. It works with any color range, from dark walls to pastel siding. You can choose to have your Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows and patio doors in all-white finish, including white hardware.
