Black Windows: Trendy or Timeless?
Black windows are a bold, eye-catching accent for homes of all architectural styles—from farmhouse properties to contemporary condos.
Though black windows have emerged in popularity in recent years and offer a more modern look than traditional white or natural wood windows—this trendy look is here to stay. Black windows have always been a design staple for ultra-modern houses, but now, they’re popularly used for “transitional” architecture that mixes contemporary and classic styles.
Top Reasons Minnesota Homeowners Love Black Windows
Black windows offer several advantages to homeowners who want to embrace their sleek, contemporary appearance, including:
Black windows are ideal for embellishing your home with a strikingly modern look that’s subtle yet elegant. Plus, there are tons of unique ways you can embrace black windows in your home. For example, you can install a black picture window to welcome natural sunlight into your living room or use black windows to create a clean, airy, and stylish look in your bathrooms.
Emphasizes Other Features
You may assume that since black is a bold color, your eyes would be drawn to your frames, but the opposite is true. Black is a neutral color, so when you look outside, your eye is drawn to the gorgeous scenery—not your window frames. Black windows help to accentuate your outdoor views, whereas brighter frame colors may detract from them.
Black windows are designed to be a focal point of your home’s design—not hidden behind window treatments. It’s wise to treat your black windows like you would beautiful furnishings, so pair them with your home’s furniture and finishes. Perhaps you could match your windows to your kitchen cabinets, iron chandeliers, or black-framed artwork. The choice is yours!
If privacy is a concern, it’s smart to choose window treatments that can be easily pulled away from your windows, like roller shades or curtains on rods, to ensure your black windows get the attention they deserve during the daylight hours.
Drywall Returns Can Really Make Them Stand Out
One of the best ways to embrace the contemporary style of your black windows is with a “drywall return”— that is when the window is installed without surrounding casing, trim, or moldings. This creates a clean, modern look that draws your attention to the windows, frames, and beautiful scenery.
Black is a neutral color, so you can technically pair your black windows with any exterior shade you’d like. However, black windows are most frequently used in two ways: contrasting shades or monochromatic colors.
Black windows really “pop” when paired with light colors, so light-toned wood, stucco, or siding and white walls are perfect for drawing attention to your black windows. On the other hand, choosing a dark exterior color to pair with your black windows (monochromatic colors) draws your attention away from your windows and sets your focus on the entire home.
Since black windows are such a popular trend, you may assume they are more expensive, but that isn’t true. Many brands, including our wide range of top-quality window manufacturers, offer black as a standard color option—so no additional cost is required.
