Cream and Grey Shutters

For those who want to venture further along the colour spectrum, we have a range of creams and greys. We even go all the way to matte black.

Our lighter creams and greys are much like white shutters – they’re incredibly versatile and will go with any colour scheme. But if you want a shutter that’s a little different and warmer in tone, you can’t go wrong with these darker hues.

If you’re aiming for something a bit bolder, then the darker end of the scale is where you may end up. Not only do dark plantation shutter colours add a unique touch of sophistication to a room, but they also showcase the confidence of their owner. Your guests are sure to be impressed by your daring interior design choices after seeing your latest interior addition. And on the practical side of things, dark colours absorb more heat, making them even more efficient insulators than their lighter counterparts.
