I’ve not been asked about black shutters for a while and then I get two enquires for black shutters in the same day.
Black used to be a standard colour option, but not any more. If you would like black shutters you would need to order either the Elite or Elite Plus shutters with a custom colour option.
Custom colours are an extra cost and are only available for wooden shutters. You would need to choose a black colour reference from either the Dulux, FB, Paint and paper or RAL colour ranges, here are some of the black colours we can match:
RAL black colours:
Signal black 9004, Jet black 9005, Graphite black 9011, Traffic black 9017
Black blue 95, Off black 97, Pitch black 256
Black, Classic black, Pure black, Rich black
Black shutters can look very stylish in the right style room or house. One example would be for a barn conversion where all the existing timbers are black, and the windows are black. Finding the right kind of window dressings for a barn conversion can be hard as windows in barns can be very small, very large, shaped or in awkward places.
When looking for a custom black colour you can choose from a matt finish or a gloss black finish and remember, that black shutters will reduce the light into the room, so choosing a larger louvre blade or wider shutters would be an advantage.
