The Colors of the Year

As award shows pop up on the screen, you see which movies win and which actors take the prize. TV shows you’ve seen and some you’ve never heard of are awarded for their attributes as well. Well, the experts at California Craftsman wish there were awards for window colors instead! In our opinion, it would help a lot of homeowners quite a bit in their decisions when it comes to replacement windows in Penryn, CA. And so now, we present to you, the colors of the year. Then it’s up to you whether or not you choose them for your replacement windows.

Gray Tones
Have you heard that gray is the new white? It’s true! People used to love all white kitchens complete with white cabinets. While that’s still a big thing, gray is a big color this year. It’s similar to white in that it’s neutral and goes with anything, but at the same time, it’s a relaxing color that brings an air of elegance to a home. If you want to try something new and you know white would work on your home, gray will probably work too.

Earthy Brown
Everyone likes a natural look and feel. That’s why wood windows are still so popular. However, vinyl is the most popular material on the market when it comes to replacement windows, and while you will be able to tell vinyl apart from wood, you can still choose an earthy brown tone to give your windows a wood-like coloring. If your home is already brown, go with a slightly lighter or darker tone to highlight the replacement windows.

There’s nothing better for a contrasting statement than black windows on a lighter home. No matter what light color your home features, black is a bold design element that can really make the house pop from the curb. Keep in mind that if you get a lot of dust in your neighborhood, black does often show more dirt. But vinyl replacement windows are easy to clean off and wipe down in no time.

Bright and Bold
If you really want to go with something unique, consider a bright and bold color like red or green. These colors stand out because not just any home will use them. Just keep resale value in mind and make sure it’s something all homeowners would enjoy and not just you and your personality!
