New construction. Have choosen PGT vinyl windows in white. The house will be siding in a sage color by sherwin williams. The trim color to best work with the siding should be an ivory color. How will that work with the white vinyl? What do others use to keep the trim and window colors looking right? I believe it is not to late to order windows in beige but would that make the interior beige as well? We wanted a white inerior trim.

I, personally, would order the windows in white. Not only will they go with your interior trim color choice, but white will probably look "cleaner" with the ivory outside.

RE: trim color and vinyl windows

Two tone vinyl windows are made. There is an up-charge for that option. The two tone option is sometimes difficult to match to existing trim coils.

I would encourage you to stick with the white.

RE: trim color and vinyl windows

We just built, have white vinyl windows and cream trim. It looks fine and I have to admit that I am picky. Plus, you'll likely add blinds etc. My blinds are pure white as well and look fine with the cream trim.

Now subway tile in the kitchen with cream cabinets is a different problem. There, I think you match the trim and go cream.
