What's the right color for your shutters?

While shutter louver size, panel design and configuration all combine to create the look of your shutters, nothing is going to be as visually striking as the color of you shutters. It’s an important thing to get right...

Shutter colors

The Shutter Store is different from the vast majority of shutter companies in the US in that we offer a wide range of standard paint and stain colors for your shutters, all at no extra charge. The paint or stain finish you choose, we believe (and our customers tell us) is beyond comparison. Hand finished, using premium grade materials and sealed with a UV protective lacquer, while you can retreat your shutters yourself if you want to change the color, we think at this stage, it’s worth getting it right. Shutter colors to suit every home!

Wood Stained Shutters

The Shutter Store makes shutters using hardwoods and many customers feel it’s a shame to conceal the beauty of natural wooden shutters. Choose from our range of inspiring contemporary whites and off whites if you are looking for the shutters to blend in with the overall look of the room…… Only a few years ago, choosing a neutral shade was considered a safe choice, but with the current design trend more towards soft whites and greys, going with a painted white or an off white shade is the perfect finish for your room.

Our range of quality wood stains is second to none and the spectrum of color goes from light natural through to jet black with a host of colors in between. Wood stained shutters can look fantastic in the right setting but take time to look around your room to see if a stain might clash with your existing furniture or décor. For example, choosing plantation shutters in light oak stain along with a wood stained floor could make the room feel quite heavy.

Windows and floors often form the largest areas of a room and having wood stains on both a floor and window could be a little heavy. However, a crisp white apartment with high ceilings, some well placed stylish furniture and both a dark black walnut floor and shutters can look fantastic. As with so many design choices, you can make your shutters look as dramatic or muted as you like. Color is one of the best ways of achieving this but before you order, ask yourself if you’ll still love the color in 5 years time! You can contact us and send a photo of your decor and our shutter design experts will be happy to help advise on what color shutters would suit your room!

Painted Shutters

Painted shutters represent the majority of our sales and our customers most popular choice. We offer a range of beautiful whites and off whites which are specifically offered in a palette to match the decor of most American homes.

Whites and off whites are a popular choice as they allow you to work the shutters into the decor and style of your home without being overly imposing. For example, if you have a lot of reds in the room, through your wallpaper, wall paint color or bedding, having red shutters would be overkill! If, in this same situation, the woodwork in your room was soft ivory color, ivory color shutters would blend well and not overpower the space.

That said, if you live in a modern loft apartment and have large expanses of white walls then going for a more striking shade can work. Black or grey shutters like these in our designer shutter store can make the window a centerpiece of the space, without overpowering.

Childrens’ bedrooms are often bright spaces and we’ve many customers who’ve successfully used pinks, blues, yellows and greens in their kids bedrooms. They look fantastic, but just bear in mind that paint brush when your kids grow out of Hannah Montana pink!
