Siding Hues to Complement White-trimmed Windows


Design is in the details, and it’s the little things that matter most. What seems like a small detail, the color of your window trim, can actually alter the entire look of your home’s exterior.

For instance, black window trim may come across more modern, or a window trim that matches your siding can look more subtle with less focus on the windows, and the choice of white window trim adds a clean, crisp pop, drawing your eye straight to the windows.

Take a look at the difference in the details:

Midwesterners prefer the white window trim look. In fact, according to market research, 81 percent of Chicago-area homeowners choose white for their window trim. Because of this, we decided to round up some well-designed homes with unique siding colors that complement white-trimmed windows. Here are a few that pop:

This Midwest suburban home is clad in HardiePlank® lap siding and straight edge HardieShingle® siding in a bold Deep Ocean color with Arctic WhiteHardieTrim® boards and matching white-trimmed windows. With the choice of the richer blue hue, the bright white stands out, making the numerous windows a focal point of the home.
