The Best Complementary Colors for Red Windows and Doors

Bold home exterior accents will be hot in 2019. So, if you’re planning to paint your window and door frames red, now is the time to do it. But before you commit to this warm, captivating hue think about the most suitable sash, rail and stile colors that will go well with it.

Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee talks about your best options below.


This color is an excellent choice to complement the red framing of your window and doors for many reasons. As a trendy hue, black is fashionable, and as a neutral, it’s versatile.

In small quantities, black can make architectural elements seem richer and energize the space. When used in glass units that receive intense sun, black can neutralize the brilliance of the light.


If you want the redness of the frames to outline your windows and entry doors, make their sashes, stiles and rails white. Like black, Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee attests that white is a neutral that can harmonize with any other hue. Unlike black, however, white doesn’t arrest the eye. This color doesn’t draw attention and tends to emphasize the bolder elements near it.

Red Rock

This hue is a shade of red with a brown undertone. Being the darker color, it de-emphasizes the visual weight of the frames to make the narrower window sashes just as noticeable.

Cocoa Bean

As a distant cousin of red, this shade of brown can coexist beautifully with reddish hues. As the color of chocolate, using cocoa bean can make your windows and patio doors appear warmer. Its dark complexion can also complement the existing wood elements in your décor, underscoring the presence of nature in your home.
