How to choose the best colour for your interior shutters
While white remains the overwhelmingly popular colour choice for Antigua Plus & Sumatra ranges are also available in 28 different contemporary colours including classic Farrow & Ball shades, plus 20 different stains, to complement any interior. If you dare to be different, what’s the best colour choice for your interior shutters?
Match your window trim
Matching the colour of your shutters to the colour of your window frames and sills will create an elegant and seamless effect in your interiors. White shutters are therefore the perfect choice if you keep your woodwork classic in a white gloss or eggshell. However, if your window frames are stained timber, then choose a Sumatra shutter in a complementary finish.
Create a contrast
Creating contrasts can bring a very different aesthetic to your interiors. If you have dark window frames, choose a contrasting paler tone or bring a bold accent to classic white woodwork with a bold and darker hue. Don’t discount the beauty of natural wood shutters even in a more formal room – the contrast of natural wood against pale or dark woodwork can look absolutely stunning.
Match other elements in the room
This is a look that can make a huge impact in a kitchen. Whether you have wooden cabinet doors or high gloss grey or cherry red, for example, consider installing interior shutters to match for a look that can be absolutely stunning if chosen with care.
Paint it black
Black plantation shutters can look surprisingly elegant, especially in a monochrome bathroom where they add an extra level of privacy. They can also be ideal for bedrooms where you require a black out effect and can help to keep a sunny living room cool.</p>
Organic tones for a contemporary interior
Earthy browns, blues and greens can add a funky and contemporary edge to your windows. Blue shutters are a particularly bold choice than can work anywhere – choose a heritage blue for a more classic or Scandi vibe, or something more vibrant for a modern interior.
With such a wide range of choice, it can be easy to default to elegant white, but if you’re interested in using colour then contact us and we’ll be happy to talk you through our range of colour options.
