Black UPVC Window & Door Frames

The rise in popularity of coloured and particularly black UPVC window and door frames has been quite phenomenal in recent years. The consequent increased volume of black UPVC window and door profile produced has helped to reduce the additional cost over white UPVC profile. Black is a versatile frame option, fitting perfectly into a variety of settings whether contemporary or period style. It can reproduce the imposing stateliness and grandeur of Tudor or Elizabethan houses with their traditional black doors and leaded window frames.

One practical reason for the increased use of black UPVC window and door frames is the fact that people are recognizing the value which is added to their properties. In the right setting, black window and door frames are a serious enhancement to a home and can therefore be seen as a serious investment in the property.

UPVC Black Window & Door Frames – Traditional or Contemporary

In conservation areas, typically within larger properties, black window frames look authentic and traditional especially when leaded designs are included. Popular patterns include standard square and diamond leaded, which are elegant and distinctive. Black window and door frames can bring striking integrity to traditional stone farm house style buildings, instilling a smart sophisticated edge.

Contrasting windows make a strong statement and strong geometric shapes are ideal for a contemporary design.

UPVC Coloured Frames – Black, Cream, Grey, Green & Woodgrain

More and more homeowners are moving away from basic white to coloured window frames especially in areas where there are a number of large and listed buildings. In particular, black, cream, grey and contemporary woodgrain finishes could really set your home apart from others. Use of warmer darker colours such as grey or black tend to recess in low light, which makes your windows look bigger, creating a much more open look. There is also a sense that a coloured window or door frame gives the impression of a more intentionally decorated home than simple white frames.

Windows and doors are available in a selection of colours, shades and finishes to compliment your home colour scheme such as rosewood, golden oak, mint green etc. This versatility helps you to create the home of your dreams while enhancing its value. Windows are a natural focal point and consequently a great spot for an unexpected hit of colour.
