Replacing white window frames with coloured ones, and a matching or contrasting door, can make your home stand out from the crowd and give the impression that you have specifically chosen them to suit your property, rather than just sticking with what is currently in situ.
All of Evolution’s timber alternative windows and doors are highly energy efficient and virtually maintenance free.
Evolution offers 10 standard, timber-effect finishes (including white, black and three shades of grey) to compliment traditional and contemporary properties. Alongside these colours, Evolution offers a bespoke colour matching service with over 200 RAL colours to choose from. Aside from the current trend for grey, homeowners often choose pale green or cream to give country cottages a classic look.
Fifty shades of grey
Grey doors and windows are leading the way in the popularity stakes and the trend doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of waning. There are infinite shades of grey, but Evolution’s most popular choices are olive grey, agate grey and anthracite grey. The lighter olive and agate greys add an elegant feel to character properties, whilst anthracite grey is a punchier hue, giving a more contemporary finish.
Black or white?
Whilst white gives a clean, contemporary finish, black window frames are becoming more popular. Often thought a contemporary choice, black window frames can also enhance traditional properties, particularly those with leaded windows, such as Tudor-style homes. Black doors (think 10 Downing Street) have been said to reflect power and prestige.
Timber colours are still a popular choice for doors and windows. Timber colours, such as oak, natural wood or rosewood, can enhance traditional properties, but also look fabulous on contemporary homes.
One of the advantages of Evolution’s timber alternative doors and windows is that you can choose to have a different colour on the inside. While many love the idea of having coloured frames or doors to enhance a property’s exterior, white is still the most popular choice internally to avoid clashing with interior décor.
