Your selection may be influenced by your home’s cladding and interior colour schemes. The window colour will often complement the cladding colour, with tones a few shades up or down. Contrasting joinery colours are also popular as well as darker natural tones and silver.
For a joinery colour that complements the house cladding it is common to choose a tone a few shades up or down from the cladding colour. Remember, however, that the colour of joinery you choose now may limit options in the future if you want a change of house colour.
Contrasting joinery colours are popular; natural tones such as darker greens, blues, greys or black are often chosen
Dark or black joinery against a light coloured house, especially in a plaster finish, can look very sharp and attractive
Matching the joinery colour to the roof or fascia for a unified look is also popular
Remember that the joinery colour can influence interior colour schemes. A good option is to choose a neutral colour that preserves flexibility for interior selections e.g white, cream, grey, taupe, black or silver.
Choosing the same colour as the house can give a very clean look, especially in white or cream tones.
