Finding the right colour to best suit your home 

Deciding on the colour of windows can be one of the hardest decisions to make and I’m sure you keep asking yourself the same question… what colour window frames will suit my house? With so many colour options available (VEKA offer an incredible 31 colour combinations) you need to consider a number of factors before taking the plunge, so here goes…


The style of your property

All homes have an architectural design that makes them unique and choosing windows that match this design is the first step in choosing the right windows. Is your home modern or traditional?

Victorian-style homes tend to suit classic colours, whereas modern homes can suit anything from bold to the more subtle colours.


The exterior of your property

It’s important to choose a colour which will complement the building material used in your property. Take a walk around your neighbourhood and see what colour windows your neighbours have, this could be a great indicator of what will be a perfect match for your home and also give you options which are a definite no no.

Your personal taste

The colour you choose should reflect your own personality. Windows are a lifetime investment so there’s nothing worse than choosing a colour that you’ll come to hate a couple of years down the line. Also remember that the colour you have on the outside doesn’t need to be the same as the colour you have on the inside. So, if you have a period home, but a modern interior, it’s easy to create the ideal look either side of the windows.


Colour trends

Taking a look at colour trends can be a great way to gather some ideas and options to choose from. For example, grey window frames are very in fashion at the moment, being the most popular colour it goes with most building materials, it’s subtle, timeless and will suit most styles of properties.


Colours to consider 


  • Darker colours tend to blend in nicely, creating a uniform, uninterrupted exterior. They’re also a creative way to make a statement on your home without choosing a vibrant colour.

  • Lighter frames will highlight the windows, making them more of a feature.

  • White frames are a traditional choice, making your property look fresh and clean.

  • You can also create effects using textured or gloss foils. For you very stylish homeowners out there, an ultrasmooth, ultramatt finish can be an absolute gamechanger… be sure to check out the VEKA SPECTRAL range.
