Choosing the right colour frame for your windows

“Colour is a power which directly influences the soul.”– Wassily Kandinsky

It would not be wrong to say that colours appeal to emotions, create the right ambience and even influence how we think. For those installing new windows, the choice of colours is an important decision. Depending on the colours, the windows can either merge harmoniously with the decor of the room or make their distinct presence felt.

Today, aluminium windows are available in a multitude of different colours. You can select different colours for different rooms, to add a wow factor to your windows.

Anodising or PVDF or powder coating: Which is better for aluminium windows?

Aluminium windows can be anodised, PVDF coated or powder coated and the colour palette is unlimited. Let us discuss these options below:

  • Anodizing is an electrochemical process that makes aluminium frames not just decorative but also lends durable, corrosion-resistant and anodic oxide finish.
  • If you want the aesthetic of wood without the associated maintenance requirements, PVDF coating is a good option. PVDF coating is available in a wide range of natural colours that let you customise your aluminium windows and give them a wooden finish.
  • Powder coating works just like regular paint. The paint is applied electrically on the aluminium window surface.

There are a host of creative possibilities for the homeowners looking for the right frames to match or contrast their home decor.

How colours work: Different shades convey different feelings

Windows can add visual interest to your home or make the room feel larger, especially when the colours of the window frames and walls merge. Understanding how different colours work can help you choose the right one for your home:

  • Dark colours: Depending on how you use them, dark colours can either ‘disappear’ into the glass or stand out distinctly. When used with a dark background, dark colours can make the aluminium window frames ‘disappear’ into the glass. This can result in a smooth and flat appearance. The same colour can create an eye-catching contrast when installed adjacent to a light-coloured facade or walls.
  • Light shades: Light coloured window frames when used on large windows make a dramatic statement, by giving you an expansive view while letting in plenty of natural light. White, off-white and other light coloured window frames can make small rooms appear larger.
  • High gloss finish: Those looking to lend a glamorous touch to their rooms can select a high gloss finish. It gives the window frames a more distinctive look.
  • Matt finish: For those who love a sophisticated look, a matt finish is an ideal option. It will make the frame appear lighter and subtler.
