Distinctive red brick homes are an iconic staple of British architecture that rose to favour in the 1880s to the early 1900s, inspired by English and Dutch Renaissance styles. Back then, red brick homes were often finished with white timber windows, doors, and porches. However, as time has passed, homeowners have experimented with a variety of coloured windows for their red brick homes. Keep reading to find out what colour windows will best suit your red brick West Midlands home.

How will I know which colour windows will go with my red brick home?

Although classic white windows are still the most popular window for red brick homes, there are definitely other colours to consider that will work just as well, or maybe even better!

Generally speaking, grey or dark colours work well with light red brick, and black and other dark shades often work well in contemporary homes, or homes with light-coloured render. This is just a recommendation, of course, and you should experiment and consider lots of possible colour combinations to see which ones best suit your own personal tastes, as well as provide your home with curb appeal.

Cream and beige-coloured windows on dark red brick homes

Cream and beige shades can work in harmony with dark red brick homes as the soft and neutral tones create a welcomed contrast against the rich coloured brick. Whereas white can sometimes look a little stark, depending on the shade of red your bricks, cream windows offer a more subtle contrast.

Modern and contemporary grey windows to complement light red brick homes

Another choice that works particularly well for windows against light red brick houses is the use of shades of grey. Colours such as Slate Grey or Anthracite Grey are darker than light red bricks which really makes the red tones in your brickwork stand out and look their best.
