In this article, we will show you some of our Plantation Shutter Colours so you can grasp a glimpse of how they fit into different spaces. Coloured Plantation Shutters offer a modern touch, elevating your space without the need for extensive renovations, and contributing to your home’s comfort and value.
Choosing Plantation Shutters Colours
While many window treatments limit you to standard colours, Plantation Shutters stands out by providing an extensive range of nearly unlimited colour options. Unlike other window coverings, Plantation Shutters can be custom painted, allowing you the flexibility to choose the colours that best suit your style and preferences.
Brightly coloured shutters on the outside of a home are fairly common, although a homeowner with a unique style may choose to add colour to their indoor window treatments as well.
Bright white shutters are classic and elegant, but in certain spaces, you may find pure white shutters to look glaringly bright.
Dark coloured Plantation Shutters add an air of sophistication to any space and other alternate colours can bring a lot of pizazz to your place. They can also absorb sunlight more than white.
Here are a few of the most popular Plantation Shutter colours (other than white) that we have available…
Black Plantation Shutters
Black Plantation Shutters make a bold statement and are ideal for spaces where you prefer a darker ambience, such as basements, TV rooms, and “man caves.” When paired with the right wall colour or contrasting elements, they can also work well in bedrooms, dining rooms, and bathrooms, providing both privacy and an elegant finish. Incorporating black and white décor further enhances their impactful and stylish appearance.
Earth Toned Plantation Shutters
Plantation Shutters adorned in earth tones like solid browns, greens, and blues can transform any space into an indoor oasis, imparting a playful and breezy ambience to your windows. This creative use of colours lessens the need for additional wall décor, as the windows themselves become an artful focal point. Opting for blue Plantation Shutters offers a bold choice that effortlessly enhances the aesthetic of nearly any setting. If you’re uncertain about committing to a particular vibrant colour, consider installing colourful shutters on a small bay of windows first to assess before extending them elsewhere.
How Custom Plantation Shutters Work
Plantation Shutters offer a special advantage – they can be custom-painted. This is because they are attached in shallow boxes, called “frames,” directly to the window casing. The frame not only gives a place for the shutter panels but also visually connects the shutters with the window trim. It’s important to plan if you want custom-coloured shutters; if you’re changing the trim colour, it’s best to paint it before installing the shutters. Changing the shutter colour after installation can be complicated and expensive.
Benefits of coloured Plantation Shutters
Plantation Shutters are some of the most versatile window coverings available. With a huge range of colours available, they can be customised to suit just about any space. In addition to their design benefits, Plantation Shutters are less expensive to purchase and install than many custom drapes and can even increase the value of your home. Upgrading your windows with new blinds can often be financed into the purchase of a new home.
Making the most out of different Plantation Shutter colours
When deciding on a shutter style for your home, it’s crucial to ensure it harmonises with the overall house style. If your home boasts a more traditional decor, opt for simple white Plantation Shutters as they may be the ideal choice. On the other hand, for modern homes, you have greater flexibility with colours, allowing you to confidently select something different and “out of the box.” Ultimately, when choosing unconventional Plantation Shutters, the most important thing is to express your personal style.
