Choosing Window Trim and Sash

The trim and sash are essential components of your window design. They can help elevate the look of your windows, so you have to carefully consider the colors that you are going to use for these parts. That said, a question that typically arises when it comes to the trim and sash is whether to match their colors or not.

Choosing Window Trim and Sash

What’s the Difference Between the Window Trim and Sash?

The trim is basically the casing that frames out the window opening, and it is often used to add a decorative touch to the entire window. Meanwhile, the sash is the frame that houses the glass, so it moves with the glass and is part of the operable window.

Should I Use Matching or Contrasting Colors?

When picking out colors for the sash and trim, your window company will likely suggest contrasting colors for a more appealing outcome. This is especially ideal for tall or large homes since the contrasting colors can help break up the façade and provide a more balanced look.

Nevertheless, there are some exceptions to this rule. For instance, if you are installing new windows with additional built-in trim elements, you might want to stick with the same color for your trim and sash. The extra framing pieces of such windows can make your window appear excessively designed if you opt to use contrasting colors for the trim and sash.

"Their workers who installed the windows were excellent. Our experience with the sales rep was pleasant. He did not pressure us. He made suggestions that saved us money."

"I would give everyone involved in the whole process a 10 out of 10. With the exception of the window installation crew. They get an 11 out of 10. I can't express in words what an excellent job they did. They went above and beyond."

"Although it is a process and doesn't happen overnight the wait is worth the end results. A Representative will come to your home and walk you through the entire process. It does take a few weeks from the time they send someone to your home to personally measure your windows to the time the factory specifically custom cuts your windows and ships them out. However, the end result is overwhelmingly satisfactory. The crew sent to install them were professional, cleaned up after the job was completed and did the job in half the time they thought it would take. Highly recommend!"
