It is often said that you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their home. Your windows and doors are often the first thing people see when visiting, or walking past, so it is important to make the right impression. 

You may not realise it but it is important to make sure your windows and doors don’t look out of place.

There are three main things you need to consider when matching your windows and doors. These include:

  • Colour 
  • Style 
  • Glazing 

Let’s take a closer look!

Think colour

Modern windows and doors are available in a range of colours to choose from – which can make the choice overwhelming.  The colour you choose can have a drastic effect on the appearance of your home. Your windows and doors should not only be a reflection of your personality but should also compliment the style of your home. 

One thing to consider is the style of your home. Is your home modern or more traditional? The answer to this will determine what colours will suit your it. For example, to match the aesthetic of a traditional property, a Chartwell green front door with either white or wood-effect windows would look great. This is because this colour scheme will seamlessly blend in with the traditional charm of your classic home and won’t look out of place. 

As mentioned, the colour of your doors and windows can showcase your personality and create a particular feel. If you want to create a sense of a welcoming atmosphere whilst standing out from your neighbours, then a bright yellow and white colour scheme is perfect in doing so. In general, natural colours are often associated with tranquility and comfort. As you can see, there is quite a bit to consider when deciding on a colour scheme!

Style is key

It is very important to match the style of your windows and doors to the style of the building. Make sure you don’t mix traditional with classic (unless you are a fan of eclectic architecture). For example, the casement window is often featured on modern properties to give a sleek and contemporary look. Whereas, to emanate the traditional aesthetic of period properties, sliding sash windows are a perfect choice. Your door and windows should go hand in hand!

Make glazing a priority

The glazing you choose is often overlooked when it comes to matching your windows and doors. However, by giving them added attention you can create an aesthetic that is truly tailored to your property. For example, stained glass is commonly associated with churches but when used on traditional properties it will undoubtedly give your home added kerb appeal and reflect the classic charm of your property. 

By giving extra thought to your glazing will go a long way in achieving the desired look for your windows and doors.
