They are versatile, less expensive than custom draperies, and can increase the value of your home. They are the only window treatment that can be financed into the purchase of your home.
Furthermore, they are one of the few window treatments that can be custom painted. This is because shutters are usually mounted in shallow boxes called “frames” that attach directly to the casing of the window. The frame provides a surface for the shutter panels to mount to, but also visually ties the shutter to the window trim so that, with a good color match, it is hard to tell where the window casing ends and the shutters begin. This is often the objective. Custom plantation shutters are typically designed and built to appear as part of the window.If you plan to change your trim color, you way want to consider painting the trim the new color before the shutters are installed. Don’t plan on changing the color of the shutters once they are installed.
With most window treatment options, you have to choose from a short list of standard colors. Plantation shutters, however, offer nearly unlimited color options. They are one of the few window treatments that can be custom painted. So plantation shutters colors should you consider?
