How To Match Your Windows and Doors to Your Home’s Exterior

Mar 28, 2024

If you’re looking for new windows and doors for your home, there are many customization options and design elements to consider. However, as you start exploring, it’s important to choose features that complement your home’s appearance. Depending on the architectural style, color, and other aspects of your property, some windows and doors will work better than others. Here’s what you need to know about how to match your windows and doors to your home’s exterior for a cohesive appearance and elevated curb appeal.

Window Design Elements

There are several design options to choose from when personalizing your new windows. These typically include:

  • Window style
  • Frame color
  • Grid design
  • Window hardware
  • Glass design

All these elements will affect your home’s exterior appearance. For the window style, consider the windows you currently have, what types of window styles your neighbors have (if they have similar architectural styles to your own home), and what kinds of window styles you see online on houses like yours. This will give you an idea of which might work for your home. Similarly, you can take note of various window grid designs as you do your research.

For frame colors, consider a neutral color that complements the color of your home’s siding. You can look at the color of the trim work and match it to your home. Traditional home designs often have white trim, which is also a standard color for window frames. Depending on the rest of your home’s design, however, white window frames may create too sharp of contrast, and a darker complementary color may better suit your home.

Other elements, such as window hardware, glass texture, and interior frame color, will likely have less impact on the aesthetic of your home’s exterior.

Matching Your Entryway to Your Home

There’s much more room for customization for your front entry doors. Unlike windows, you only have one front entryway to consider, so there’s more opportunity to get creative in designing a unique, welcoming, and one-of-a-kind entrance. Like your windows, it may help to explore your neighborhood or look at similar home designs online to find inspiration for your home’s entryway. Neutral colors, colors that are complementary to your home’s siding, and woodgrain finishes are all popular choices that tend to work well. You’ll also want to consider decorative glass designs, door hardware, and the profile of your front doors to put the finishing touches on your home. Whether you opt for a bold and eye-catching entryway or a subdued and elegant set of front doors, you’ll have plenty of options to match your home and your personal preferences.

Enjoy Peace of Mind
 Pure Home Restoration replaced all of the windows on the north, east and west sides of my house including the picture window and sliding glass door in the kitchen. Don was great to work with. They took care of all of the claim/insurance company dealings which was very helpful. I haven't had to do much more than enjoy the new windows. 
 Don Darnell and the Pure Home team were incredibly professional and knowledgeable throughout our entire repair process. Don went above and beyond advocating for us with our insurance company. His attention to detail throughout the repair process was greatly appreciated which allowed for a seamless installation process. We would recommend Pure Home without hesitation and plan to work with them again if/when the need arises. 
 Pure Home was quick in responding to me, and worked directly with my insurance and mortgage companies to help guide me through the process of the claim. They had an onsite foreman each day to check the progress of both the roof and gutter replacements. They were professional and thorough.
