Be courageous with color

While you can never go wrong with a pure white or natural wood stain color shutter, our custom DIY shutters allow you to get bold with your vision and your shutter design. The color of your shutters can really tie a room together or add a nice contrast as a design element in the room. We offer free samples of our many paint and stain colors to help you see what will work best in your home plus an option for custom color matching.

The Designer Collection: A wow-factor

Our Designer Collection features flat louvers for a sleeker more modern look than the traditional elliptical shape of most shutters. With a wide range of 13 colors from Extra White to Black Panther, there is sure to be a color that fits your interior design.

The 13 Designer Collection colors are available in either a satin finish or a high gloss finish. Branch out from neutral tones with our Peacock or Claret Red, for example. High gloss gives an ultra-modern look and best of all is super easy to clean. Made of solid poplar wood with an extra smooth finish, simply dust with a microfiber cloth or feather duster.

Custom Color Matching

If you don’t see a color in quite the right shade you’re looking for or want an exact match to the paint you’ve already used elsewhere in the home, consider custom color matching on wooden shutters.
Simply order in the Classic Poplar Hardwood range and note the color code from any color in the current Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams swatch decks. If the color is not in a current Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams color deck, you can always send us a physical sample of the paint color to match.

With this option, there is really no limit to how creative you can get with the color. Try a different color in each room, multi-colored panels, or even a contrasting color frame! Give our shutter experts a call to discuss these options and pricing.

Unfinished Wooden Shutters

For the very handy and DIY-minded individual, we also offer unfinished options in our wood ranges. This is a more budget friendly option compared to custom color matching and leaves full control in your hands to create your custom look. This is also a great option if you want to use a specific wood stain to match existing woodwork.

Choose raw, unfinished wood if you plan on staining your own shutters. Our poplar wood shutters have a smooth finish and a uniform wood grain making them ideal for staining. Choose unfinished & primed if you plan on painting the shutters yourself. These will come with the primer already applied, so you can start painting right away.

Bold Neutrals

Being bold with color doesn’t necessarily mean bright or dark colors. For the traditionalist, or the design enthusiast with a constant changing color scheme, neutral color shutters can still be a stunning addition to a room.

For example, a Walnut wood stain or a Biscuit or Gray paint color can add some interest without dictating the color scheme. In the designer collection, neutral tones like Mid Taupe, Tuscan Grey and Dark Lead can blend nicely with any existing room décor without stealing focus. Try Biscuit or Alabaster in our vinyl and wooden shutter ranges. Check out our customer gallery for shutter inspiration.
