White Window Trim Verses Brown Metal Trim

By Selina Hoit
Hey Friends!

Have you ever looked at a home and you thought "Humm, I really enjoy that look.....I wonder what I LIKE about it?"

Well, when I was building our home there was one construction detail that I kept noticing I was drawn to whenever I saw a home constructed with it.  It was:


BROWN/BRONZE WINDOW GRIDS


Let me show you some windows and you can see what I mean. :-)


White Trim Windows
(I love the white on coastal homes!)

Although normally the brown grid is fabricated in metal or painted wood (quite a bit more expensive than vinyl) you can get the LOOK by ordering your vinyl window package (yes, it's a small upgrade) in a bronze painted finish.  

This isn't the best picture of my dark bronze window trim but I think you can imagine the difference between the bronze instead of a white grid/border.  I chose a dark painted wood trim border around it so the bronze melts right into the brown wood instead of a white grid that would be in contrast to it.

Windows can be made from wood, aluminum, steel, or vinyl.  But for this post I decided it would be fun to focus on industrial modern beauties, otherwise know as brown metal trimmed windows. :-)


Almost always, when you see industrial style decor, you will see the bronze metal window trim used.

I love the windows and the concrete walls in this kitchen!

Oh man, what's not to love about this kitchen?!  This is an example of how the general "industrial" look can also be more traditional.

Ah, I LOVE the arched design!  That is another plus when using metal windows, you can span a large area letting in a TON of light because of the load bearing properties of metal.

The bronze doors/windows are almost a side glance with all the beauty of this home!

What a VIEW!  Thanks to the metal windows, the entire wall is pretty much freed up.

I love the iron chandelier mimicking the iron of the windows. Oh, and look at that awesome brick floor!

Oh, just ONE pretty little bronze metal window setting:-)

So what are your thoughts?

I know using METAL (or wood) is a LOT more expensive than vinyl, but that's why you could just upgrade to a bronze PAINTED vinyl grid OR just do the metal around a special area or entry.

I find it amazing how dramatically different just the color of a window could make a home!

Did you already notice that construction detail on other people's homes?

Have a wonderful weekend!
