Reasons Why Black Windows And Trim Are Trending!
In the design community, there’s a massive trend with black windows. Does it mean white windows are out? Does it mean black windows are merely a fad? The response to all of these queries is no. Both white and black windows are great options based on the design of the home you are trying to build or redesign. The answer of which will be better between black vs white can vary. Black frames can enhance the view out a window and draw the eye outside. In a garden, wooden, or ocean setting, the color black can blend into the scenery while white frames the view even more.
It pays to be aware of a possible drawback to black window frames. The black color will absorb more heat, which could be a great idea, depending on the spot. But if your windows face the western sunlight or it gets hot where you live, heat transfer is a sure negative. Thankfully, there is a solution. If your black window frames are aluminum, choose thermally broken frames. They feature plastic separators to prevent heat from transferring between the external and internal frames. Thus, a more comfortable house.
Although black windows are becoming extremely popular over the past several years, they date to the last 100 years. Black steel windows were initially installed in factories and warehouses. Then they eventually made their way straight into residential properties. As we see, black windows are used more often in new construction and older homes today; some believe it may be a trend. But some disagree. Some believe that black windows are classic, and considering they date back so far, they have a feeling of timelessness and character about them. Black windows can be utilized in various design styles. Probably the style that we most often see is the modern farmhouse design. When others see a white house black windows, they immediately assume “farmhouse.” But they are not limited to modern farmhouses. If there is one negative thing to black windows, it is that the grilles could be challenging to see in the daylight on the exterior. They mingle in with the dark glass if there isn’t something bright reflected in the windows or if there aren’t any curtains or blinds directly behind the glass. When considering white windows, some may be frightened at the thought of having a noticeable color difference between the white window and the white shade of the house’s exterior. However, with black windows, this is not an issue since it is a drastic contrast.
