4 Reasons to Use a Darker Trim for Your Windows

White is usually the first color that comes to mind when it's time to pick a color for your trim. That said, your windows can actually be the perfect place to experiment and go bold with black trim. This is because choosing black on your windows can provide a gorgeous definition and enhance the entire look of a room.

Southwest Exteriors, the top provider of quality windows in San Antonio, lists 4 reasons why you should consider whipping out a paintbrush and some dark paint for a quick trim update:

1. Create a High Contrast

Dark trims provide an easy way to go bold with a color you might be unwilling to put on your walls. If you have white or very light walls, you can use high gloss darker trims to create a strong contrast for a modern look.

2. Highlight a View

Framing a view in dark tones can draw the eye in, highlighting an outlook or just pull attention away from an unsightly area of the home. This approach is probably best for north-facing rooms and homes since dark trim may not blend well against a sun-filled room.

3. Eliminate the Need for Window Treatments

Dark trims are a great way to give your windows a finished look and eliminate the need for costly window treatments. Dark colors provide an intentional design and still let in plenty of sunlight without making the room feel too fussy.

4. Hide Flaws
