PARKERSBURG, W.Va., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MS -- Need a way to express your style on your home? Try one of the new eye-catching colors in the Decorum™ by Simonton line of windows and doors. Homeowners can choose from Brick, Chocolate, Bronze, Cream, Driftwood, Pine and Tan for exterior window frames.
The durable colors are designed to appeal to the growing trend of integrating more colors on the exterior of homes. "Imagine a Brick red window frame set against pure white clapboard siding on a Federal-style home," says Tom Kraeutler, co-host of the popular The Money Pit national home improvement radio show. "Or, perhaps a mountain cabin with Pine green window exteriors. The results are stunning and the options endless. We're seeing many products these days available with outstanding color options to help customize the home. People finally have a way to express their personal style with more traditional building products like windows, siding and roofing."
The choices continue inside the home with the Decorum collection's line of interior laminates and hardware finishes. To create a stylish look, homeowners can select from interior frames in White or Tan, along with rich, authentic Antique Cherry, Maple and Contemporary Oak. Premium hardware finishes for the windows include Brushed Nickel, Oil-rubbed Bronze, Polished Brass, Dark Bronze, White, Driftwood and Tan. The ability to personalize the interior and exterior of a home's windows allows homeowners to make existing homes "newer" to them.
"Creating a customized look inside and outside the home on windows is actually quite easy with this Decorum collection," says Kraeutler. "Along with the interior and exterior frame options, there are color-matched sculptured grids and screens also available. This way the windows and patio doors may be tailored to the exact desires of a homeowner."
Kraeutler, whose program delivers home improvement tips and ideas on more than 260 radio stations, notes that the benefits of the Decorum products go beyond the visual appeal. "These windows are extremely energy-efficient, so they help save on heating and cooling costs in the home," says Kraeutler. "In addition, they add to the resale value of a home and increase the curb appeal of the house from the day they're installed. Overall, adding windows with fashionable, stylish color frames can benefit homeowners in a multitude of ways."
