Material, style, and color–those are the three most important factors that determine how a window treatment will look in your house. Though multiple styles and materials of plantation shutters
are common, the most frequently-seen shutter color is easily white.
Why is white the most common color for plantation shutters? Let’s dive into some of the reasons why white shutters have been a Las Vegas window cornerstone for decades.
White Shutters Are Timeless
Top quality shutters like Polywood® plantation shutters are designed to last a lifetime, which makes white a perfect color option. That’s because white furnishings are timeless, and are never out of style. Regardless of what new trends in color appear over the years, white will always match them. And whether your home has very intricate or very basic style, the classic look and clean design of white plantation shutters fit in seamlessly.
Need proof? Simply take a look at the different styles of homes that use white plantation shutters. Tudor style, mid-century modern, ranch, Cape Cod, and most other styles of home all frequently use white shutters in their design. It’s obvious that white shutters span a period of several years.
White Shutters Are Energy Efficient
One of the premier benefits of plantation shutters is their energy efficiency. Polywood shutters are able to block up to 30 of heat that moves through your window, and there isn’t a better energy-blocking window treatment available in Las Vegas.
So why is color important? You might already know that lighter shades reflect heat, and that darker colors absorb it. That means that a white shutter won’t be a vector through which heat comes in your home, unlike a dark color. If you know what it’s like to step out onto a faux-wood deck that’s been in the summer sun, you’re aware of how much heat it can accumulate. The darker the shutter color, the more heat it will absorb and pass through into your house.
White Shutters Offer Design Freedom
Your Las Vegas home is an extension of your own personality, so the ability to fully express your creativity through your home design is important. Not many window treatments give you the same design freedom that white plantation shutters do. Here’s why.
White is one of the best complementary neutral colors. Which means it won’t complicate a color scheme, so you won’t be pigeon-holed into a specific palette in your space.
White shutters let you break “the rules.” You might have heard the advice to always match your window treatments to the window trim, but with white shutters that isn’t always necessary. Because white complements every other color, they can easily fit alongside non-white trim.
If you want to combine window treatments, white plantation shutters provide a great contrast to patterned curtains, drapes, and similar fabric window coverings.
