The colour choice of your shutters can either make or break the look entirely. With such a wide spectrum of colour it can be difficult to know which direction to take. Naturally, your colour choices need to compliment the room in question so this will always be your starting point. When you choose the right colour, your shutters will enhance the overall style of the room and the look of your property in general. There are three different elements that need to be taken into account. The first is the trim of the interior shutters, the colour of the exterior shutters and then finally the colour of the exterior walls. To compliment the look from the outside, it is a good idea to have your gate the same colour as your exterior shutters.
If you are feeling doubtfully about your colour choices, a good back-up plan is too choose neutral colours such as white or black. More often than not these will match most designs and decorative styles both interior and exterior-wise. If white or black does not appeal to you, then opt for lighter shades rather than strong colours. Lighter shades can look less imposing, friendlier and will be flexible in terms of fitting in with the surrounding look. Most shutter suppliers, including American Shutters, should be able to supply you with a sample in the right colour for you to take home and gauge whether it is the right one. This is especially important for the exterior shutters as these will define the aesthetic appeal of your home from the outside.
A great solution to your colour indecision would be to invest in shutters that can be painted over once they have been installed. This can be a pliable solution if you cannot decide which colour would work best or you have found shutters that are not available in the colour you want. Either way, buying shutters that can be painted on down the line enables you to take your time. While it can be more expensive in terms of hiring a painter, you can save on this cost by doing it yourself. When painting external shutters yourself, remember to use commercial external latex paints as these are durable against weather conditions and have a long life-expectancy.
Choosing the colour of shutters can be a daunting task, with so much choice available with the added pressure of not wanting to make the wrong choice. Consider these guidelines above and remember to give yourself the space and opportunity to consider your options.
