Freedom of design – two-coloured windows

No more design compromises! Modern PVC technologies allow in window joinery to freely combine various colours of veneers so that they match both the external facade of the building and interior design. There is a full colour palette to choose from, from wooden and metallic tones to solid RAL colours. We present the possibilities offered by two-color windows.

What are the advantages of two-coloured windows?

Carpentry ordered for a house or apartment does not have to look exactly the same on both sides. You can opt for two-color windows – with one color on the outside and another on the inside. This solution is ideal for projects where the style and aesthetics of the building differ from what the decorators and designers have planned for the interior.

Two-color windows open to many different design and architectural options that are not available in the case of one-color projects. It is mainly about interior design, which is not restricted by the – often separately regulated – exterior of the building. Thus, the arrangement possibilities are almost unlimited!

When is it best to choose two-coloured windows?

Two-coloured windows are useful in many cases. It is up to investors, architects and designers to decide whether or not this solution will work in a specific project. There are, however, a few situations in which two-coloured windows will be particularly useful.

Firstly, if you live in a heritage building that is under the protection of a conservation officer, or in the immediate vicinity of one, you need to stick to strict guidelines regarding the external style of window joinery. This leaves little design freedom, especially in terms of interior design. Thanks to two-coloured windows, however, you can get a little bit of it by adjusting the outside of the joinery to the imposed requirements, leaving yourself the choice of the inside veneer to match the overall style of the room.

The second case is having an apartment in a building managed by a community or cooperative, which sets the standards for external decor, including window colors. So if, for example, the windows in our block of flats have to be white, but inside we would prefer to have a darker colour, for example anthracite, then two-coloured solutions will be perfect.

A third situation in which it is worth considering the installation of two-coloured windows is the contrast between the exterior design of the house and the planned interior design. If, for example, the architect decided that due to the style of the facade or the surroundings of the house it would be better to install windows in dark but trendy colours, while the household members would prefer light or wooden windows on the inside, there is nothing to prevent this from happening. Colours can be chosen freely, so the window joinery will not be an obstacle to achieving design goals.

How to combine colours?

The rule is simple – it is best to combine colours so that they match both the external style of the building and its interior. For example, you can opt for a classic contrast – white windows on one side and black (e.g. Jett Black matt), dark grey or anthracite on the other. Or, combine a warm wood-like veneer (for example Winchester) with one that resembles cool metal in color and appearance (such as Alux DB). But there is nothing to stop you going for bolder colours!

And if it turns out that two different colours on the inside and outside are not enough, they can also be combined in the so-called BiColor, a solution in which frame and sash are made in completely different colours.

The number of colour options is therefore almost unlimited and it only depends on the designer’s imagination and sense of style as to which design works best in a particular case.
