Selecting A Color For Your Shutters

You are already in the store, but you can’t settle on the color of your shutter; what should you do? I’ll give you the answer shortly. Back then, white colored shutters were really common, therefore you probably didn’t have a lot of options to choose from. Nowadays, there are many designs and colors to choose from, making it really hard for first time shoppers to decide on one. If you are having a hard time selecting a color for your shutter, here are a few factors you should consider;

• Prominent color in your home

This refers to the color of your wall paint or actually any color you think is widely used around your house. You should choose different shades of the colors you already have your house. You wouldn’t want to buy one with a color that doesn’t match with anything in your house. If you mostly have bright colors in your home, pick a lighter color for the shutter and vice versa.

• The color of your window frame and trim

This is really important because they will be adjacent. You don’t necessarily have to pick a color that matches your window trim, you can try with colors that combine perfectly. If you are not good with colors, you can check online for colors that coordinate perfectly.

• Aim and reason for buying

There are so many reasons why people buy shutters for their homes. Some buy them to replace the curtains and give the house a new look, while others buy them for renovation purposes. If you are buying for your personal interest like an upgrade from curtains, then you are free to choose any color, but if you are renovating and planning to sell the house, you should probably choose white shutters. They’ll make the house look elegant and hopefully increase in value.

• Your style

Before you go to the store, you should have a close look at your house. There’s definitely a style you always follow when buying things, either knowingly or unknowingly. Therefore, when you are trying to select a color, have in mind the style of your home and only choose something that easily fits into the style.
