Colored Vinyl Windows: A Growing Trend in 2022

It’s always fun to see which exterior house colors are trending every year. For 2022, the on-trend colors range from warm, creamy whites to rich blacks as an accent or primary color. Color experts also predict that brown, beige, calming blues, and dark grays will significantly influence home updates.  

To complement these new hues, homeowners are choosing colored vinyl windows that make a striking statement and transform their homes from ordinary to extraordinary.

The Growing Trend for Colored Vinyl Windows

Not so long ago, choosing a vinyl window color was quick and easy. There was white, and there was tan. Darker tones weren’t used because they absorb the sun’s radiant energy, which eventually warps the material. And there didn’t seem to be much interest on homeowners’ part in varied hues.

Vinyl now represents about 70% of the U.S. residential window market, and manufacturers want to give consumers as many options as possible. Plus, in recent years, people have gotten more adventurous in exterior color combinations.

Colors and Combos People are Choosing in Vinyl Windows

An advancement known as RPT, or reflective pigment technology, now makes it possible to manufacture vinyl windows in just about any color. RPT uses colors that reflect the sun’s infrared spectrum, which keeps vinyl from reaching a temperature where it distorts. The result is durable, reliable finishes for vinyl windows that withstand the elements and the test of time without warping, fading, or cracking.

With vinyl windows now available in an almost unlimited range of colors, you might be surprised to hear that the color more and more homeowners choose is black. Clean, bold, and classic, black window frames are used to either provide a stark contrast to lighter exteriors or a tone-on-tone look that eliminates distraction and blends into the surrounding natural environment. There’s no denying that adding black windows to a black exterior is a dramatic look, particularly on modern homes.

Other popular choices include:

  • Beiges, browns, and bronzes that draw from nature and create a feeling of serenity
  • Light blues or greens with dark exteriors to create visual interest and a warm contrast
  • Gray tones that are largely replacing pure white window frames and being paired with rich wood grain fiberglass entry doors

No matter which color vinyl windows you choose, they’re sure to make an amazing difference to your home’s entire look. Whatever your home’s architectural style, new colored vinyl windows boost curb appeal and bring years of enjoyment.
