Color Story: How to Pick the Right Shutter Shade to Complement Your Home

Last updated 2 years ago

With their light and privacy control, shutters are the ultimate window treatment. When you include plantation or polywood shutters into your home décor, you can also play with color. Take advantage of the fabulous color selection by finding the perfect shades to complement the rest of your décor. This guide will help you choose great colors for all of your shutters:

  • Take a Color Inventory
    Before you start browsing through the selection of beautiful window coverings, walk around your house and examine your current color choices. Is your style more traditional? Do you have modern touches throughout? The color pattern that you have in the rest of the house will greatly affect your window treatment option.
  • Pick a Color Family
    When you upgrade your shutters, you have a huge selection of shades. The best way to narrow down your color selection is to pick a color family. Find colors that work well with your current interior and search for shutters that fit the color scheme. If you have a lot of light, airy colors, for example, you might want to stick to white or off-white shutters. Browns and other wood tones work well in neutral rooms. Bring a picture of your décor to the window coverings store to talk to the experts about the colors you should consider.
  • Be Consistent
    The most important aspect of any décor is balance. You want to find shutters that continue your color schemes throughout the house. Use consistent shades in rooms with consistent decors. You might not use the same color shutters in every room, but make sure to be consistent in rooms with similar design schemes.
