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.

Reflective Shutter Properties

A great factor to consider is the reflective properties choosing white for your window shutters will bring. For example, full-height white shutters on your living room windows, easily increase light as the sun bounces off the white reflecting back into the room. Tilt the shutter louvres to adjust the amount of light flowing in and you can really maximise the amount of sunlight the room will receive. This makes white shutters a great feature in larger rooms such as the living room, as well as smaller darker rooms which could benefit from a little more sunshine.

Whether your home interior is super colourful, to more of a minimalistic appearance, due to their neutral colouring, white plantation shutters certainly won’t be out of place! This makes them a great option for an everchanging style, no matter the changes you bring to your home a clean white shutter will look fantastic on your windows.

White window shutters are a fantastic contrast for darker coloured rooms, making your windows a statement in themselves. This works great for brighter bolder colours like blues or oranges! Equally, they are a beautiful complement to an already more minimalist home, flowing well with white or pastel tones. The options are limitless!

All of our shutters are made from great quality durable materials. Combine this with a classic colour and your window treatment will last for years: a completely timeless look, that unlike curtains, won’t go out of season.

Choosing the right colour for your plantation shutters can be tricky. Between more popular neutral colours like white and grey and more daring bold colours, let us give you the lowdown on how to achieve the perfect look for your home.

The colour decision process is an important one and there are two things you should consider; personal taste and which part of the room you’re looking to complement. Plantation shutters can be used to blend and merge with your current features or stand out against them to create a statement piece. Shutterly Fabulous offers a wide range of colour options, including a custom colour service that enables you to custom-match your ideal colour to your plantation shutters.

Creating a timeless piece that you’ll fall in love with again and again

So why is white such a popular colour for shutters? As the most neutral of colours, white coordinates well with any design you choose for your interior. Not only does white open a space for a clean and fresh look but it provides the perfect base palette for all your seasonal transformations.

If you’re looking to achieve a crisp, contemporary look, the brightest of whites is your winner. However, opting for a subtle warmer tone such as Dove or Alabaster allows a more traditional style of window dressing.

When choosing your colour, consider the matching process; not only to your soft furnishings, but to your window frames and sills. Matching your shutters to these elements creates a seamless effect in your interiors.

Which colour should you use for your plantation shutters - Shutterly Fabulous

The growing trend of using greys has been sweeping our homes and interior shutters are no exception. As a balanced practical colour, grey shutters will give your home a more conservative and sophisticated look. A cool grey offers an essence of calm, whereas a darker charcoal grey communicates strength.

Plantation shutters – a great focal point

Colourful plantation shutters make a fantastic alternative to a feature wall as they bring a focal point to any room. Unlike a feature wall, plantation shutters also give you control over how much natural light you let in, transforming the ambience from dusk till dawn.

Colour blocks are growing increasingly popular, injecting bursts of bright and bold shades for playful pops of colour. Why not combine fruity lemon and papaya with geometric patterns for a fresh, industrial hit of colour, bagging plenty of character and vibrancy.

Shutterly Tip: Choosing the right yellow will induce high-spirited energy and boost productivity – ideal for a functional workspace at home.

Dark mood and tonal ambience

Dark, moody tones will soon be coming back into season, creating a cosy space for those all-important nights in. At Shutterly Fabulous we love a deep crimson shutter, certain to bring instant quality to a bedroom or living area.

Dark shutters also help absorb the natural light seeping through the windows, making any small rooms appear larger than they are.

Choosing a dark shutter palette acts as its own décor. There is little need for interior change when you’ve made a statement as bold as this one.

Shutterly Tip: Keep your interiors looking crisp and clean by alternating dark and light colours that balance both the room’s natural and artificial lighting.
