What Plantation Shutter Color Should Those In New Brunswick Use?

Plantation shutters are seen as some of the more fashionable window coverings that people in New Brunswick buy for their windows. Their enduring style blends easily into many different design themes and easily prevents sun glare and heat loss from seeping into your rooms. The durability of a plantation shutter is also a big bonus, especially against your kids or pets.

With so many wonderful aspects regarding these window treatments, it’s no question if you should get shutters in your home. Rather, you should be asking what color of plantation shutters should you pick?

White Plantation Shutters Fit Every Style

Just like trim, white is also the most favored color of plantation shutters for most styles. The reason is simple -- white can work in many different interior themes. From strong wall colors to neutral interior design, white window treatments can complement them all. And when you redo your preferences and start anew, you can keep your white plantation shutters in the space, saving you from another chore.

Those who choose white plantation shutters usually want them crafted from faux wood so they won’t yellow after install. Our Polywood® shutters are available in three different shades of white and have a lifetime warranty that guarantees the shutters will never yellow, stain or fade. To clean, you’ll only need to wipe with a cloth, which is much simpler than most other window covering.

Natural Wood Browns Work Well With Some Styles

For some rooms, a plantation shutter with a natural wood stain fits best. A natural wood look is a little restrictive for over exuberant design alterations, but if you can pair your wood flooring or wood cabinets, then perhaps you should consider wood plantation shutters. The stains can give the space a more natural look, and a must if you’re looking at a colonial or rustic style.

The best bet is to pick real basswood plantation shutters like our Ovation® line. They are available in a slew of stains that can complement most trims and flooring. If you want a rustic treatment, you could use a reclaimed wood plantation shutter. These are perfect if you have a beach house or rustic farmhouse style in your home.

Strong Colors Are For Other Types Of Window Treatments

While you may paint your plantation shutters in a strong color, it really isn’t advised. A bright color may work well now, but then you may be saddled with that color until you change the treatment out. White and hardwood have stood the test of time, but will the bright red or princess pink shutter still look en vogue 5, 10 or 15 years from now? You can repaint your wall color with a day or so of work, but it will take a whole new window covering to change the color on your plantation shutter.

If you are looking for color, you may want to install a store-bought accent curtain along with your plantation shutter. By including a small bit of color or pattern, you then bring creativity to your window treatments without sacrificing the practicality of a custom-made interior shutter. Then as your taste changes, you can keep the shutter and just switch out the curtain -- or ditch it altogether.
