Trend to Watch: Black Window Frames & Black Vinyl Windows

Last year, we shared 3 projects where “Black Windows Made an Impact.” If you read this blog and are still not sure if this trend has continued, now is the time to reconsider. And don’t take our word for it. You can scroll through libraries of black doors, window frames and black vinyl windows on your favorite design and home decor websites.

In the meantime, we have compiled three different ways black can elevate a home.

Black Window Frames & Doors Don’t Have To Always to Be Modern

Black Exterior Frames

A lot of the time, people think black window frames and black doors require modern architecture to support them. When in truth, there are many traditional (and even older styles) that can benefit from the use of black vinyl windows and black sliding glass or French doors. There are multiple applications for black windows outside of modern architecture.

But Black Vinyl Windows Can Make a Modern Home Stand Out


Sometimes, modern homes are viewed as cold, sterile, and plain. PGT loves all styles of homes. We have seen our customers with beautiful modern homes using black window frames and doors to add more interest to their white stucco exteriors. Also, the use of black window frames and doors helps draw the eye to architectural features that may not have been seen otherwise against a light-colored backdrop.


Regardless of Your Home’s Architecture, Black Vinyl Windows Create “Wow” Moments


When looking at new construction, it’s easy to get caught up with the common materials used on the exterior—the trim paint colors, landscaping, etc. But black window frames allow homeowners to create a “wow” moment that will garner plenty of second looks. From black French doors to black vinyl windows, homeowners can bring a unique look to their new homes or even give an existing home a stunning makeover.

Black window frames and black sliding glass / French doors are not going away in 2020. They are something homeowners should consider if they’re building their dream home or if they’re looking to give their existing homes a fresh, new look. When it comes to products, there are numerous ones available, so take the time to do your research and select the right product for your home.
