Colorful Simonton Windows Featured in “FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior” Online GuideSeptember 09 2013
COLUMBUS, OHIO - Can colorful windows really help add curb appeal to a home? According to color expert Kate Smith, the answer is "definitely!"
Smith, a career color trend forecaster and president of Sensational Color, believes that adding color to key products on the home's exterior can increase the value of the home, add curb appeal and enhance the overall living experience for homeowners. To show both building industry professionals and homeowners how to add "top down" color to the home, Smith has teamed up with Simonton Windows and several other building product manufacturers to introduce the new 36-page FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior guide.
Available as a free download at http://colorguide.simonton.com/, the step-by-step guide shows homeowners how to select colors that enhance the exterior features of their homes. A variety of home styles are matched up with different color palettes in the FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior guide, including Ranch, Colonial, Bungalow, Victorian, Spanish Mission, European and New American. Smith offers several color combinations for each style’s exterior along with tips for making homes complement their neighborhood settings.
"In working from the top down on a home to add color, we start with the roof and siding, then come to the windows, doors and trim," says Smith. "I've found that with Decorum® by Simonton window options it's easy to add colorful windows to the home. Exterior frame color options include Pine Green, Brick Red, Chocolate, Bronze, Cream and Driftwood. Those complementary colors work with many different palettes and can combine to bring color and elegance to any style home.
"I'm a firm believer that homeowners should not be locked in with a boring exterior just because they're afraid to add color. This book provides tips for homeowners to confidently add color to their home exteriors. Whether it's adding vinyl replacement windows with colorful frame options or accenting windows and doors with painted crossheads and pediments, the home's exterior is a blank canvas just waiting to be splashed with color!"
The comprehensive and colorful online piece was a collaborative effort of Smith and several building product manufacturers, including DaVinci Roofscapes®, Fypon, Simonton Windows and Therma-Tru.
