When it comes to choosing the correct colour for sash windows, there is no one-size-fits-all answer; it depends on many factors, such as where your home is located (if its heritage or conservation-focused), as well as other design elements you may have considered around your property like brickwork or trim colour. Below we discuss some essential tips to keep in mind while selecting the right shade:
Choosing Your Ideal Colour
Firstly, select a hue that adds contrast while still being complementary with existing colours within your space, whether this is vibrant primary colours alongside pastels or richer earthy tones against whites and neutrals. Consider uniformity versus texture, too – choose wood finishes that won’t overpower rather than detract from making an impactful statement visually.
It’s also worth remembering when selecting light-coloured window frames that traditional hardwood will darken over time – including changes in season – when exposed to ultraviolet light or rainwater; it can cause discolouration, which might affect the overall look you’re hoping for; speak to us at Super Sash Windows about ways to reduce these effects if needs be!
Lastly, different manufacturing processes typically provide between 8–14 stain options, so ensure you consider product warranty when considering cost vs quality performance properties here.
In conclusion, there is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to selecting the right colour for timber windows and doors. However, by considering factors such as the style of your home, surrounding colours and texture uniformity versus contrast, you can be sure to pick a hue that works beautifully for your space.
