8 reasons to love
coloured shutters

Using bold colours within your home allows for that unique, personal touch that we often crave, not to mention the mood boosting power colour can hold. While the scientific exploration of colour psychology is a relatively new discussion, the impact of colour dates back centuries. Using colour to evoke a feeling in interior design is also a well-practiced art. However, it can feel overwhelming knowing where to start, especially if you’re a newbie to bolder colours or home decoration altogether. In our experience, the result is always worth the effort.

Here are eight reasons coloured shutters are a great choice for the home:

1 They complement the saturated paint colour design trend

In recent years, we’ve noticed a lot of saturated wall colours whereby one colour envelopes the walls and ceiling. It seems to be particularly popular in smaller rooms or those with low ceilings as a way to help the room look and feel larger. Matching your window shutter colour too will create a truly cohesive space.

2 A modern look that doesn’t compromise on sustainability

We understand the importance of choosing environmentally friendly options, as discussions around the importance of sustainable design and manufacture grow. Our customers are increasingly asking where and how our shutters are made, and we reassure them that our real-wood plantation shutters are made by one of the leading and most sustainable shutter manufacturers in the world. As a company, we are committed to practicing sustainability where we can, and choosing a bespoke bold colour choice will not hinder that in anyway.

3 Add character and help personalise any room

Adding a splash of colour via your window dressing can speak volumes about the personality of your household. Coloured shutters are an instant talking point when welcoming visitors to your home too.

4 Ideal for nostalgic design lovers

Designing with nostalgia in mind is set to continue, so if you enjoy mixing elements from different eras into your design theme to cherish memories of times gone by, coloured or stained shutters can help you achieve the retro look you’re after. On top of our wide range of colours and stains, we also offer five standard craft, textured grain finishes for our hardwood shutters too.

5 Coloured shutters can make small rooms look bigger

By drawing attention to the window, colour can create a sense of spaciousness. Coloured shutters also make the perfect complement to feature walls.

6 Design flexibility

Our hardwood shutters come in 19 standard painted colours, six standard vanishes, and five standard craft, textured grain finishes. However, if these do not offer the colour you need, we offer a custom colour matching service too. In short, there is no stone left unturned when it comes to shutter colour. We can even make shutter louvres in a different colour to the shutter frames.

We have even supplied rainbow shutters in the past – a great option for a child’s bedroom, playroom or nursery school.

7 Complement warm wood tones

If you are a fan of using warmer wood tones and an earthy colour palette within your furniture and fabrics, wooden shutters will enhance the look. Whether you opt for black shutters which will look good with all manner of wood tones, a wood stain, or a lighter colour to ensure the wood tones stand out in sharp relief against them, shutters will deliver.

8 Suit all property styles

Whether you need the perfect window dressing for a period property, shutters to complement modern window design, or a mix of both, there is a hardwood shutter style, colour, and finish to suit.
