Outdoor Window Trim Ideas

While it often is a practical problem like cracking, leaking, or fogging that starts the window replacement process, there is so much opportunity to update your home’s style. The outdoor window trim style you choose is one of the most important parts about choosing new windows. These are the key outdoor window trim styles you need to know:

No Trim

Minimal and modern, the first outdoor window trim idea is to have no window trim at all. By doing away with trim and having the siding flush with the window frame itself, you create a simple yet intriguing look. This look is often seen on mid-century modern houses, however it can look outstanding on any home. Plus, since this isn’t the norm, it can actually prove much more eye-catching than a traditional trim.

Flat Trim

This is the most common outdoor window trim option that comes along with the majority of new windows. This trim style is thin and comes in simple colors, which are often matched to the home siding color. To make this option a little more exciting, including a decorative windowsill is a popular add-on.

Shutters and Trim

When done correctly, this traditional option can bring a classic elegance to your home. Often seen on farmhouse style homes, shutters can bring a strong pop of color to any siding. One key thing that separates authentic looking shutters from imitators is if the shutters are wide enough to cover the entire window. On a classic farmhouse from which the style was inspired, the shutters always accommodate the full width of the window.

Molded Window Trim

This outdoor window trim type creates the most elaborate look and can be a true showstopper up close. Molded window trim can incorporate a wide range of patterns, including everything from fluting or beading to simple shapes and patterns. This is the trim option for homeowners who want to truly personalize every inch of their home.

Masonry Casing

For rare homes, masonry casing around new windows is the perfect complement. This adds a grand look that immediately stands out compared to the standard choices. In particular, masonry casing is a great choice to complement the unique look of a stucco home.
