Give your home a new spring in its step with colorful windows and doors that will draw the eye and boost curb appeal.
Replacing white window frames with colored ones, and a matching or contrasting door can make your home stand out from the crowd and give the impression that you have specifically chosen them to suit your property, rather than just sticking with what is currently in situ.
All of Evolution’s timber alternative windows and doors are highly energy-efficient and virtually maintenance-free.
Follow these tips if you are upgrading your windows or doors.
Evolution offers 10 standard, timber-effect finishes (including white, black and three shades of gray) to complement traditional and contemporary properties. Alongside these colors, Evolution offers a bespoke color-matching service with over 200 RAL colors to choose from. Aside from the current trend for gray, homeowners often choose pale green or cream to give country cottages a classic look.
Fifty shades of gray
Gray doors and windows are leading the way in the popularity stakes and the trend doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of waning. There are infinite shades of gray, but Evolution’s most popular choices are olive-gray, agate gray and anthracite gray. The lighter olive and agate grays add an elegant feel to character properties, while anthracite creates a more contemporary finish.
Black or white?
Whilst white gives a clean, contemporary finish, black window frames are becoming more popular. Often thought a contemporary choice, black window frames can also enhance traditional properties, particularly those with leaded windows, such as Tudor-style homes.
Timber colors are still a popular choice for doors and windows. Timber colors, such as oak, natural wood or rosewood, can enhance traditional properties, but also look fabulous on contemporary homes.
One of the advantages of Evolution’s timber alternative doors and windows is that you can choose to have a different color on the inside. While many love the idea of having colored frames or doors to enhance a property’s exterior, white is still the most popular choice internally to avoid clashing with interior décor.

I’ve been looking through luxury homes for sale here in Nashville. Since I have enough budget to purchase a new property, it’s good to search for inspiration or some models. You mentioned that timber colors, which include oak, natural wood or rosewood, can enhance traditional properties. With that, I’ll purchase a house that is pleasing to my taste.
Love this idea. Seems like darker woods are super hot in our area, I’ve been looking forward to re-doing ours in an almost-black stain before selling. Changed our sliding patio door to a double-walled model and wound up saving a ton on AC bill, so here’s hoping some of these changes can also be more energy efficient.
