Builders and replacement window companies are selling and installing more black windows today than ever before. Black windows have been available for quite some time. However, until about three years ago, were not something many people considered for their home. So why are they the hottest window trend today? We think these are possible reasons.
Farmhouse & Contemporary Style Homes
As more people remodel in a farmhouse style and home designs trend to the contemporary or modern style, black windows make sense. Farmhouse homes often have white walls and a black roof. Black windows look great in this style. Modern style homes are often grey, white and natural wood, black works well with the color and design scheme.
This is especially true if your home is undergoing a remodel. Outside, black replacement windows pop against virtually any color home. If your new roof is dark, the black frames and trim will compliment it. Inside, your windows will be a focal point in your home. If the only thing you change on your home’s exterior is the windows, you’ll be surprised at how they increase your home’s curb appeal.
They Create a Focal Point in Any Room
Think about how a frame around a picture draws your eye to the picture. Black windows create a frame around the view outside your home. In many cases homeowners who install black replacement windows realize they no longer want or need window treatments as the black frames are enough of a design element without a curtain or valance.
Dirt is Practically Invisible
If one of the things you dislike most about your while or light-colored windows is that they show dirt after every rain storm, black replacement windows might be exactly what you need. Although you can see dirt and water spots close up (like any color window), it’s much harder to see on a black window.
