Exterior Tips for Atlanta Replacement Windows


Atlanta Windows Exterior OptionsTips to “Shake Up” Your Home Exterior with Color

Can colorful windows and doors really help add curb appeal to a home? According to color expert Kate Smith, the answer is “definitely!”  Give your Atlanta Replacement Windows added color.

Smith, a career color trend forecaster and president of Sensational Color, believes that adding color to key products on the home’s exterior can increase the value of the home, add curb appeal and enhance the overall living experience for homeowners. To show homeowners how to add “top down” color to the home, Smith has teamed up with Simonton Windows and Therma-Tru in the new 36-page FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior guide.

Available as a free download, the step-by-step guide shows homeowners how to select colors that enhance the exterior features of their homes. A variety of home styles are matched up with different color palettes in the FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior guide, including Ranch, Colonial, Bungalow, Victorian, Spanish Mission, European and New American.

“In working from the top down on a home to add color, we start with the roof and siding, then come to the windows, doors and trim,” says Smith. “I’ve found that with Decorum® by Simonton window options it’s easy to add colorful windows to the home. Exterior frame color options include Pine Green, Brick Red, Chocolate, Bronze, Cream and Driftwood. Those complementary colors work with many different palettes and can combine to bring color and elegance to any style home.

“I also have most fun adding color to the front door. When you have a paintable door, like those in the Therma-Tru Classic-Craft® Canvas Collection®, you have the ability to add a ‘pop’ of welcoming color to any entryway. Therma-Tru also offers a wide variety of paintable fiberglass doors in their Smooth-Star® and Pulse product lines.”

According to Smith, here’s a look at what different paint colors on entry doors of the home say about the occupants inside:

  • Red — tells the world to “look at me!” This bright color says I’m not afraid of standing out or saying what’s on my mind.
  • White — says that I prefer things that are organized, neat and clean. Even if my home isn’t always this way, I wish it were!
  • Green — tells the world that you have traditional values and enjoy being a member of the community.
  • Black — says I’m consistent, conservative and reserved in my manner as well as my approach to color. With a black door I’m saying my design style is timeless rather than trendy.
  • Blue – tells people you are naturally at ease in most situations and people are attracted to your easygoing personality.
  • Yellow — says you have a personality similar to green, but a bit less traditional. You’re most likely a leader or organizer of a group.
  • Purple — reveals a “free spirited” person who is comfortable taking risks, thinking differently and dreaming big.

“I’m a firm believer that homeowners should not be locked in with a boring exterior just because they’re afraid to add color,” says Smith.  “This book provides tips for homeowners to confidently add color to their home exteriors. Whether it’s adding vinyl replacement windows with colorful frame options or installing a new, paintable fiberglass entry door, the home’s exterior is a blank canvas just waiting to be splashed with color!”
