4 Benefits of Choosing Black Window Trim for Your Home

Looking to modernize a room in a simple yet standout way? Skip the white and go bold with black fiberglass windows with very low expansion rates. Black is a timeless color for home design, and black trim has been an ongoing home trend for years now — loved by both homeowners and interior designers. If this is a trend you’ve been eyeing, keep reading below for 4 benefits of choosing black for your interior windows.


The strong contrast between dark trim and white walls can energize the space in your home. It adds a sense of depth to an otherwise understated room. If you’ve always wanted to try something more “daring”, black trim is a good place to start experimenting with color. Its boldness allows this combination to create an eye-popping environment. Black trim also works wonders for underscoring high ceilings because it draws the eyes upward. This makes the room look bigger than it really is, perfect for rooms where you plan to entertain guests.


If you’re a homeowner who doesn’t like filling their rooms with too much decor, artwork, or over-the-top colors, then black trim may be just the perfect statement for you. Black trim instantly defines the windows as a focal point. Paired with light walls, this dark outline of black trim effectively defines shapes, accentuating your windows. This is a clever trick to help your space make a statement with minimal effort and minimal “stuff”. We’d go as far as saying that If privacy isn’t an issue, you can ditch the window treatments altogether.


Practically speaking, black is the perfect color to hide baseboard scuff marks compared with lighter shades. We’d say that this is the perfect color for a homeowner who has kids, pets, or would rather not worry about keeping the trim scuff-free. Or it’d even be a good choice for kitchens where there’s constant traffic. However, keep in mind that dust is more visible on black, so it will still need some form of upkeep. Either way, it’s still an ideal option for family-filled homes.


Hello, beautiful view! If wonderful views surround your home, there’s no better way to highlight them than with black windows. Think of it as the perfect picture frame, highlighting your lovely new windows and your worthy-to-see view. Another perk is that dark colors on windows capture the eyes, dragging the attention away from unattractive areas around your home. Black also works well with fixtures facing the sun to counter the overwhelming flow of daylight.
