Window Trends for 2018—Are They Right for Your Wixom Home?
Every year designers pay close attention to new color choices for home interiors and exteriors. Of course that includes taking note of new window frame colors—and 2018 is no exception. What does that mean for you if you’re considering new or replacement windows for your Wixom home? Are the new colors right for you?
First of all, it’s important to note that not all designers agree one what the predominant color for the year will be. For example Glidden Paint has announced that their color of the year is “Black Flame PPG1043-7” while their competitors over at Sherwin-Williams insist that their three new color palettes (“Affinity”, “Connectivity”, and “Sincerity”) are actually the “hot” colors for the year. Meanwhile, the color experts at Pantone are adamant that “Ultra Violet” (Pantone 2096) is their choice for color of the year.
Obviously, you have a range of choices for colors in your Wixom home. What about for windows, though? A recent Realtor Magazine article drew attention to the resurgence of black windows, saying that, “some feel the interest in black is a welcome contrast after years of off-whites, grays, and beiges. The hue is coming on strong in every category—appliances, plumbing fixtures, lighting, metal finishes, hardware, and soft goods.”
The article specifically mentions that Marvin Windows and Doors launched its Designer Black line this year, incorporating a hip industrial vibe and designer Kristie Barnett, loves how black mullions draw the eye out toward exterior views more efficiently than white windows can.
What if black is a bit too bold of a statement for your Wixom home? You don’t have to worry. You can still get the outstanding quality, performance, and style that come with Marvin Windows in a variety of other colors.
If black isn’t your preference, here’s a look at the options available to you for interior and exterior window colors.
