During a window installation, homeowners are often tasked with making dozens of decisions about their replacement windows. From choosing which style of windows would best complement the rest of your home to selecting the right glazing to maximize energy efficiency, all these choices can certainly be confusing, especially for first-time remodelers. One particularly challenging decision is color coordination.
Read on as our professionals from Renewal by Andersen® of Greater Philadelphia give you a few important pointers about how to choose colors for your new windows.
Trims and Sashes
Some people mistakenly think the frame of their windows holds the glazing together. The frame is a general term covering a lot more parts than that, including the trim and sashes. The trim is the outermost part of your window, and is sometimes carved out with intricate patterns to give the window more character. You can think of the sash as a “frame-within-a-frame.” It’s the part that actually holds the glazing and typically moves with the glass when you open or close the window.
The key to a well-designed exterior is making the elements blend seamlessly together to form a cohesive unit that has charm and character. This skill takes time to develop, but there are a few basic design concepts that are always reliable.
