This time of year we are reminded how a simple change can completely transform a landscape. Fall is a great time to make home improvements and updating the colors of your home can have the same transformative effect as the changing color of the leaves. This is why each of our wood, fiberglass, and vinyl product lines offers a wide variety of interior and exterior colors to brighten your home. So cozy on up and let us give you a tour around the Pella products color wheel.

In the midst of all of these beautiful fall colors, how do you decide on a color that will make you happy for years to come? Ask yourself these three questions.

What is my goal for replacement windows?

While you might not think the reason you’re replacing your windows or your goal in doing so will affect the color of your windows, it actually plays a huge part. While there is some overlap in color, the different materials of windows all come in a variety of different colors as well so the material you choose determines your color options.brown wood casement replacement windows for fall

While color might not be a direct reason to replace, the material you need is directly determined by your needs and goals when deciding to replace. If you’re looking for great energy efficiency, you have the options of wood or vinyl. If you’re looking for a more historical look, you’re going to want to go with a wood window. If you’re looking for something more durable with low maintenance, fiberglass windows might be a good fit for you.

Additionally, if your goal is to modernize your home, color can play a large part. One of the best ways use windows to help modernize your home is to replace with black windows. Black windows impart a more crisp, contemporary look to your home.

Determining your goal when replacing will help you to narrow the plethora of options available, making your decision that much easier.

What am I looking to match my windows to?

Do you prefer your windows to blend in to the siding on your home or to pop out? Are you trying to match them to trim or to an entry door? Maybe you’re looking to add a pop of color to an otherwise monotone color scheme, whatever the reason, making sure your window color fits with the overall look of your home is of the utmost importance.

What colors do I like?

This is a huge factor in your decision as it should be. Even if brown windows match your home, if you don’t like the color brown, don’t get brown windows! High quality windows can last you for years. That’s a long time to look at your least favorite color so know all of your options and pick a color that you’ll be happy with for years to come.

If you’re unsure of your current options or are having a hard time deciding on your next step, you can learn more about the different color options for different types of windows on this very blog or you can reach out to one of our experienced sales consultants here.
