Curb Appeal--Window Grid Color

Posted by lsandler (My Page) on

We are in the process of picking out our replacement windows and have decided on Marvin Infinity. The inside window will be white with white grids and the outside will be a cashmere color or medium-dark beige. If the outside grids are the same cashmere color, I think it may look like a grey hole. To counteract that look, I was thinking about the outside being the cashmere color window with white outside grids. My CG says most folks do the same color grids as the window but some folks change it to white.

Have you ever seen a white grid with a medium-dark beige window?

I have never seen that.

I think you might be in the minority there. I might look odd in my opinion but perhaps others have seen it that way.

RE: Curb Appeal--Window Grid Color

I don't think it would look right. The outside should all be the same color. However, if you have window trim, that could be a different color than the window itself and may lessen the "grey hole" effect. But I'm not sure I quite understand what you mean be "grey hole".

RE: Curb Appeal--Window Grid Color

We just completed a couple of installation in a neighborhood where all the homes had wood windows painted Colonial Ivory and all the grids where white. These were the original windows. I thought it looked OK. If it was my house, I'd still probably go with grids that matched the rest of the window.

Thanks all for your replies. I just placed my order and I chose cashmere with cashmere grids.

I upgraded to to hi transparency screen so I am hoping it does not look like a grey hole.
