Spring and summer are the best times to energize your living space by adding a fresh coat of paint and replacement windows and patio doors. Instead of painting your old doors and windows and making a mess, enjoy brand new replacement windows in your favorite colors. Some homeowners like a unified look throughout their home, while others choose colors that go with the décor in various rooms of their Michigan home. While you could paint your own windows and doors, it’s tricky to get an even coat of paint with different grille patterns. Also, painting older windows or doors won’t improve the energy-efficiency in your home or prevent nuisance insects from entering through cracks or tears.
- Exterior colors for replacement windows
Some of the popular exterior colors for replacement windows include forest green, dark bronze, black and neutrals such as white, canvas and sandstone. If you own a modern home in Michigan with a lot of stainless steel, consider black or dark bronze. Forest green works well in a traditional home as well as a rustic cabin on Lake Michigan.
- Interior colors for replacement windows
The interior colors of your windows should complement the kitchen cabinetry, flooring and other design details such as ceiling fans. If you have maple cabinets in your kitchen, opt for a maple interior color. If you have pine or oak floors in your Michigan home, choose the same interior color choice for your replacement windows. White and neutrals work well with any architectural style. If the walls of your living room are deep red, the crisp white will really pop.
- Colorful choices in patio doors
Whether you choose white patio doors or a natural wood tone, you can choose different hardware styles including stainless steel, gold or bronze. After a professional installs your replacement windows and patio doors, consider different colorful window treatments. According to an article by decoist.com, modern architecture is all about the view to the outside as well as the interior décor. Sliding glass doors or patio doors blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors. Whether you choose elegant simple white curtains or something more colorful, curtains over sliding glass doors can be great insulators.
