Colour can be a major sticking point for many of our customers when it comes to choosing shutter design as they explore all of the options available. This can be for a variety of reasons but most commonly it is toying up between our multiple white options which have very minor differences. Choosing the right shade can be the difference between matching perfectly to your windows and their surrounds and not.
Our expert surveyors will show samples of all of our colour ranges at your comprehensive measure appointment so you will be able to look through all of the different options available, hold them up against your windows and have an open discussion about what best works for your home. The final choice is always down to you but with many years of experience under their belt, our experts can always advise or guide you on popular choices for your window if preferred.
There are 4 things to keep in mind when selecting your colour;
Window and architrave colour
Shutters are a lasting investment for your home and with a 5-year warranty you can be confident that they will become part of your home for the long run. Over the extensive period that you will enjoy your shutters you will likely look to re-arrange and re-decorate your rooms on multiple occasions so ensuring that your shutters will consistently match interiors is often our customers preference so that future decorations do not need to be dictated by the shutters.
Your interior inspiration
It sounds like an obvious consideration but keep a clear focus on where you will be taking your interiors when you are selecting your shutter colour. It can be easy to get carried away with all of the beautiful options available, so a good option is to put together an inspiration board of your colour or fabric choices (if you haven’t already built one) which will play a major part in your rooms to ensure that your shutters pair beautifully with the final finish of each room.
The completed look the addition of shutters will give your interiors is of course the most pivotal aspect of your shutter design, however some of our clients do also like to consider what the effect on the exterior view will be on completion of the shutters and factor this in when choosing their colour.
The shutter material you opt for will determine colour availability – for example, if you are looking for a stained shutter then you will be looking at our wooden shutter choices, whereas painted finishes are available in all materials. In certain rooms such as bathrooms or kitchens with high moisture levels, our waterproof shutter material is best suited so again the colour options available in this will need to be considered.
