Black Is The New White For Trim & Window Colours






Are you looking for something a little different for the exterior trim or window colours of your home?

Right now, dark colours are the biggest trend.  Homeowners are choosing dark greys, dark browns and dark blues for a sophisticated, classy look.

But it might come as a surprise that one of the biggest trends is using black for trim and window colours on your home’s exterior.  In fact, while ‘Orange Is The New Black’ may be one of the hottest shows on television, when it comes to household exteriors, it could be argued that Black is the new White!

Black trim always makes sense for a white house. But people are getting more and more daring, with fantastic results.  Black is being used to trim out homes that are prominently cladded in neutral colours like Gentek’s Pebble or Dark Drift and even Gentek’s Iron Ore and Windswept Smoke.



These colour combinations create a modern, upscale look that many homeowners desire.  You will also see black being used with many lighter, more traditional colours like Dover Grey and of course White.

If you want to make something stand out, black makes a perfect highlight. It works great for windows too, especially if they’re on the larger side. If windows are the eyes of your home, Black makes for a very attractive eyeliner.

Gentek eavestrough, soffit, fascia and windows are all available in Black. Maybe it’s time you took a trip to the dark side, to make the beauty of your home’s exterior really stand out.
