Black Window Frame Design Inspiration

Decide if black windows are the right fit for you.

In the 19th century, black window frames were mostly used in commercial builds – in greenhouses, factories and warehouses. Today, black window frames are a popular and classic way to add drama and design to a new home build or renovations. Here are a few recent home designs to help you decide if black windows are the right fit for you.

We wouldn’t change a single thing about this beautiful, modern bedroom. Notice how the sleek black window frames and industrial black ceiling fan work together to create a powerful statement. You can do the same in your home by using similar contrasting elements throughout a space to create movement and emphasis.

A clean and crisp white bedspread balances out the minimalist look and amplifies the natural light coming into the room, making the room appear bigger and brighter.

While we love the tile and tub in this bathroom, the most stunning focal point of this space is undeniably the large casement window, which opens up to an outdoor oasis. Can’t you just picture yourself exhaling here and basking in the sunlight at the end of a long day?

Though the window brings in a lot of light, its black window frame and the black chevron tile help keep things soothing and subdued.
