How to Pick the Colour of your Window Shutters
Our shutters come in many different styles and colours to suit all types of rooms and homes. We can finish the shutters in a wide range of paints and stains depending on the type of look you are trying to achieve, with the added option of colour matching them to an exact colour! There are many options to consider with the finish, from flat or glossy paint colours through to rustic or weathered staining. The Style of Decor and Rooms they are to be installed in Some clients wish to have the same finish and colour of shutters throughout the whole home, but for those who are looking for only one room to have shutters or are creating an individual look for each room you can get really creative with the colours. White colours look fantastic with the majority of interiors and can work well across the whole home. Many customers are also selecting darker colour paints and stains to stand out in certain rooms. Matching can also be done to other parts of the room such as existing units and furniture so that the shutters really blend in. On the other hand you can use a colour which really makes the shutters stand out in a unique and vibrant colour, but with a good eye you can still make this work with the other colours and décor in the room. The colour of the Window Frame and Ledge Unless you are planning on changing the colour of the window frame, it is also worth noting how the shutters will work once installed within the frame. For example there is no point having white shutters installed in a cream frame when we can match or find the correct colour. Contrasting the shutters and the frame can also look amazing, but again plan our exactly how the colours will work together before picking! Considering your Homes Exterior Style and Colour Is your home traditional or modern in appearance? This is something to keep in mind when designing your shutters. A traditional period home may look great with classic white colours or a natural wood grain, with modern homes more susceptible to bolder colours and finishes. The colour of your home and brick work will look good with different colours of shutters, so needs to be taken into account when deciding on a finish. Many customers are focused on the look of the shutters from inside the home, but with the shutters drawn and louvres closed they really become a focal point from the exterior and will be seen by your neighbours and passers by!
