The Complete Guide to Coloured uPVC Windows

Prime Hybrid Energy
Replacing windows in your home can not only improve your home’s insulation levels and energy efficiency, it can also transform the look of your home. When replacing windows you will have a choice of materials including uPVC, aluminium, timber and composite, but did you know that many suppliers can also offer coloured window frames?

Coloured uPVC windows are the most popular which is why we’ve put together this guide to help you make the right choice for your home.

How to choose your coloured uPVC windows

For many people, finding out that they can personalise the colour of their windows frames is a double-edged sword. Yes, it gives plenty of room for creativity, but it also means making the difficult decision: which colour to choose! Some people are looking for a subtle shade which will complement the existing architecture and stay in-keeping with surrounding home, while other people prefer to make a bit more of a statement.

While coloured window frames are a great way to express your personality and give your home a unique sense of style, it’s worth thinking about the future. Should you come to sell your property in the future, certain colours may make your property less appealing to the masses while neutral shades could be a safer option.

RAL Colour Chart for uPVC Windows

The European colour chart for varnish, powder coating and plastics predominantly used in architecture, construction, industry and road safety is called the RAL chart. When you place your order for coloured uPVC window frames it is highly likely it will be one of the shades on this chart, although your choice may be limited depending on which supplier you use.

Here we have included some examples of popular colours so you can see the variety available to you, or you can take a look at the full RAL colour chart for windows.

Bright coloured windows

If you’re going to buy coloured uPVC windows, why not go for it? The front of your home is what people see as they pass by and using a bright colour for your window frames can really bring a home to life.

Neutral coloured windows

Lots of people prefer a more low-key approach to their home aesthetics and will stick neutral and classic shades. This is a particularly savvy approach if you are planning to sell your home in the future as it may make it more appealing to potential buyers.

Want matching coloured uPVC doors?

It’s worth knowing that you can buy both coloured uPVC doors and windows, so if you’re also replacing your front or back door you might want to choose matching colours, or even different colours which complement each other.

Other Coloured Window Materials to Consider

Coloured uPVC windows are not the only option of course, so if you’ve got your heart set on another material for your frames you should be able to adjust the colour in a very similar way. Some suppliers can even provide a colour match service so you can get the perfect shade for your home, but each supplier will have a different range.

Coloured timber windows

Timber window frames can be painted in any colour you like and, if you want to retain the natural grain of the wood you could use stains or tinted varnishes. This paintwork or varnishing may need to updated over time to keep it looking fresh. Check out our section on timber windows.

Coloured aluminium windows

A powder coating can be used to colour aluminium windows which gives a durable finish and means you can often choose from the full RAL colour chart. Check out our aluminium windows section.

Coloured composite windows

Composite windows can be more limited in terms of the colour range on offer but if you find the right manufacturer they will be able to work with you to create a colour which suits your home. Find out more about composite windows.
