The Best Complementary Colors for Red Windows and Doors

The Best Complementary Colors for Red Windows and Doors

February 28, 2019

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.

Black

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.

White

If you want the redness of the frames to outline your windows 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.

Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee offers up to 49 window-sash color combinations, giving you plenty of latitude to imagine numerous design possibilities. Call us at (262) 522-3034 today to schedule your FREE in-home consultation in Milwaukee and to learn more about our other customization options.

Hear From Our Customers

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
