When deciding to replace your windows, choosing the colour of your new windows is never an easy decision, especially when there are so many colours available on the market to consider. It’s hard to know what will complement your home in the best way.
If you have a rendered home, and you’re searching for advice on the perfect colour of windows to match your property’s render, we’ve put together this handy guide to help you. We have suggested some of the most popular colour and style combinations for homeowners with rendered houses across Sheffield, Derbyshire, and beyond.
What is rendering on a house?
When we talk about rendering in the world of home improvements, we refer to a process whereby the exterior walls (one, some, or all) are covered with cement, lime, acrylic, or some other similar plaster-like mixture. The difference between rendering and plastering, however, is that rendering involves the exterior walls while plastering involves prepping interior ones.
Typically, the main purpose of rendering a home is to improve the look. A coat of render can really help to brighten up the appearance of a home and gives the whole house a facelift. This is why matching a suitable colour window to your render is so important, as you want to complement and enhance the look of the render.
Match modern grey windows with render
Different shades of grey really complement rendered homes are they offer a neutral tone that goes with most other colours. Whether you have a light or dark render, or maybe a bold and bright render, grey windows will create a harmonising accent to your home’s exterior.
Popular shades of grey include Anthracite, Slate, and Agate. Take a look at the 5 most popular shades of grey for home improvements here.
Pair traditional windows with traditional render
If your render is a more traditional colour, such as white, cream, or French grey, you may want to play into this established aesthetic by pairing it with more conventionally coloured windows. White windows are still the most popular choice of window colour for homeowners today, and it’s no surprise as to why. White is brightening, easy to keep clean, easily matched with other colours, and isn’t so obtrusive that it distracts from other architectural features.
If you want a classic colour window to pair with your render other than white you could consider Cream, Rosewood, or Golden Oak.
Combine bold coloured render with light windows
Nowadays, properties are rendered in a vast variety of different colours. From blues and pinks to greens and yellows, many housing developers have embraced bold render colour choices. Pairing lighter, pastel, and more subtle toned windows against these bold colours create a balance and contrast that is very aesthetically pleasing. It can also allow more emphasis to fall on the house itself rather than the windows if that is what you would rather.
One particularly nice lighter shade to consider would be Chartwell Green for an airy ‘modern countryside’ type feel.
Keep it classic with wood effect windows
If you are a fan of natural woodgrain but don’t want the regular maintenance and upkeep that comes with real timber windows, you could opt for wood effect uPVC windows. Timber effect windows look really beautiful paired with rendered walls as the wood grain pattern offers a contrast in texture. Timber effect uPVC windows also provide the best of both worlds as homeowners can enjoy organic woodgrain effect patterns with the low maintenance and energy-efficient benefits of modern uPVC.
If you’re interested in wood effect uPVC windows, you could consider Irish Oak, White Grain, or Golden Oak.
What style of windows go best with render?
If you’re still in the early stages of deciding you want to replace your windows, you may be wondering what style of window best complements your rendered home. Typically, you can get away with choosing any style of window you like, as render is very versatile, and complements a vast array of fittings.
One style that looks particularly impressive with render is flush sash uPVC windows. Flush sash, also known as flush casement windows, are distinguished by their classic clean lines that sit flush within the window frame. uPVC windows are notoriously low maintenance and extremely energy efficient, so not only will your home look amazing, but you’ll enjoy an array of other benefits too.
