Custom Windows Add Luxury to Minnesota Home

Custom wood windows built for beauty and performance enhance the contemporary appeal of this new build.


For a contemporary new build in Minnesota, custom black windows underscore the home’s clean lines and highlight the natural surroundings. Minnesota-based contractor Detail Homes and architectural firm Charlie & Co. worked together with our Architectural Solutions team to create the luxurious custom wood windows for this home. We were lucky enough to get a peek inside. Take yourself on a tour below and see how custom windows complement the beautiful space.

Custom Black Windows Enhance Contemporary Home

Custom windows present nearly limitless opportunities to personalize your home. Pella’s custom window solutions are available in a wide array of shapes, sizes, materials and colors to best meet the needs of a unique space. Clean lines and natural beauty are at the heart of this luxurious, contemporary home. Throughout, custom shapes and sizes of black wood windows were used to highlight different architectural features, starting in the open concept kitchen and living area.

Black window frames continue to dominate the world of architecture and interior design, and the black casement windows used in this home make a statement that is both on-trend and enduring. Black windows are appealing in both traditional and contemporary homes alike, but in the case of this new home, the striking windows underscore the home’s modern aesthetic. The contrast of black windows on white walls gives the room a polished, contemporary vibe.

From the black interior window finish to the light fixtures, dining room chairs and cabinetry hardware, black accents punctuate the light-colored living room. The crisp, geometric lines of the windows are reflected in the clean lines of the furniture selection.

Black Windows Frame Natural Beauty

With more than 20 of our Architect Series windows flooding both the living and dining rooms, this home is beautifully illuminated with natural light at every angle. Our Architect Series windows have the widest range of interior and exterior finish options to choose from, as well as grille patterns and hardware styles in traditional, transitional, rustic and contemporary selections that can be used to customize your window in a way that best reflects your home’s style. In this case, minimalist hardware and the absence of grille patterns keep the windows looking crisp and clean.

Not only do the living windows provide abundant light, but they also serve to create an incredible connection with the natural beauty outside. Thanks to the contrast a black window frame provides the human eye, these windows quite literally frame the view outdoors making it an integral part of the home’s design. And speaking of the outdoors, EnduraClad exterior finish helps protect these windows from the elements, ensuring beauty that’s built to last.

Custom Windows Highlight Architectural Features

As you make your way upstairs, custom rectangular windows and a Mid-century-style glass globe chandelier create a mesmerizing display of light. The tall, vertical windows accentuate the height of the space and provide the illusion of being up in the treetops.

We love how the architects took advantage of the extra space in the intermediate landing by creating a small lounge area. The low-lying bench allows the great outdoors to take center stage. Abstract art and geometric pillows add color and balance to this clean, modern contemporary design.

A Black Bathroom Window Enhances the Space

Bathrooms are often one of the most underutilized spaces for natural light, but when designed with windows in mind, the result is both practical and stylish. A glass shower door allows the light from the window to filter into the entire room. While the rest of the home features blonde hardwood flooring, the dark flooring used in the walk-in shower area gives the bathroom a resort-like feel and provides an elegant contrast to the mostly white space. The minimalist vanity, sink and faucets echo the clean lines used throughout the rest of the home and enhance the crisp, modern aesthetic of the space.

Special Shape Windows Create a Unique Wall of Glass

Our favorite spot in this contemporary home is without doubt the upstairs loft area, featuring a wall of glass that opens up to a walk-out rooftop patio, continuing the home’s emphasis on indoor-outdoor connection. The unique triangular shape of the loft wall required a series of custom windows and patio doors to get the desired look and functionality. With patio doors open, the rooftop space becomes a natural extension of the indoor living area.

Can’t you just picture yourself hanging out with friends and family as you watch the sunset together here? Our motto here at Pella is perfectly beautiful, and this? Well, this is it.
