Design Trends: Oversized Windows with Black Frames

At Silverton Custom Homes, we specialize in building luxury homes overlooking the waterfront and hillside. It goes without saying we want to take advantage of those spectacular views! Our favorite way to do that is with tall, expansive windows like those from RAM. To add a sophisticated, modern feel we love to use windows encased in a black frame.

Why We Love Black Framed Windows

1. They work with almost every design aesthetic. Black framed windows easily complement a variety of home design and decor styles. From modern farmhouse to contemporary to ultra-modern, these windows blend perfectly.

2. They add visual interest without being too overbearing. Opting for windows and doors with a black frame draws the eye without being too harsh or detracting from the outdoor views.

3. Their sleek, clean lines add a modern touch. Black framed windows give any room a modern flair and create a focal point in rooms with a neutral palette.

You can see these gorgeous windows in action in one of our newest homes for sale in Lago Vista, Texas. Located in the Waterford community, this stunning home overlooks Lake Travis. Designed with comfort and functionality in mind, the design pays homage to the traditional farmhouse style. However, it adds a few modern traditional twists with clean lines, vertical shiplap siding, and large walls of glass.
