Do you spend your weekends binge watching “The Property Brothers”, “Fixer Upper”, “Good Bones” or one of the other widely popular home renovation shows? For those of you who are planning a major home make-over, including installing replacement windows and patio doors, you might be thinking about creating dramatic transformations with a black and white decorating scheme. Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey & New York Metro recently added black finishes to our color palette because dark interiors are popping up everywhere today. We see black interior aspects in all home styles, including farmhouses, traditional homes and everything in between.

Here’s what you need to know about using dark accents as part of your New Jersey or New York metropolitan home renovation.

Aim for Balance in Your Design

Whether you choose complementary or contrasting window frame colors is often a personal choice. When discussing dark interiors, many interior designers say balance is the key to transitioning a space to timeless beauty rather than creating a trendy vibe that may go out of style quickly. Equal parts of light and dark – black and white – create the perfect background for contemporary décor and bold, vibrant accent pieces.

In a kitchen, you may choose a black ventilation hood, black interior window elements and black overhead fixtures to balance white walls and floors. Dark, but lighter colors, such as rich gray granite or tile counter would add a transitional space for your bold accents. Think vibrant copper pans hanging from a ceiling-mounted black rack and crimson canisters and flower vases strategically paired with the gray counter top to add visual contrast.

Demand Durability in Your Windows & Doors

When choosing replacement window brands, select a manufacturer and installer that guarantees your new windows will outlive a short-term trend. Creating a timeless black on white or white on black color scheme should last for as long as you live in your home, or until you decide you are ready for a change.

Sleek matte finishes on replacement window interiors and complementary hardware for sliding or swing-out/swing-in replacement patio doors should be high-quality and manufactured to stand up to daily use without fading, pitting or failing.

Colors baked in at the factory eliminate on-site surface preparation and finishing, resulting in a faster (and probably easier) renovation completion. Of course, black prefinished interiors are only one option. People who prefer to add their own texture and color can select hardwood interiors suitable for painting after installation.

Embrace the Power of Bold, Clean Lines

Black and white combinations are not a new concept, but we see matte black finishes and crisp, clean whites reinforcing a contemporary design scheme becoming more popular today. Bright walls and low-profile replacement windows with black interiors encourage natural light flow and re-frame exterior views with a design element that complements the natural scenery.

Black on white is not for everyone. But, for those who want a timeless look with modern accents that bring a new energy and vitality to any space, pairing light and dark may be the perfect solution.
