The best advice when considering shutter colours, is to match the window colour rather than the walls or flooring. Most windows are white, so Silk White is the most popular colour.
Benefits of white interior window shutters:
- You can change the Décor of your room without having to respray the shutters
- Provides maximum light reflection into your room
- Adds value to your property
- Blends with your window frame for a more fitted finish
- Match other windows in the property
- Creates a bright appearance when viewed from outside
Matching stains to wood floors
Stains can be matched to existing flooring with a range of standard stains available. Natural oiled Cedar shutters can be a nice option when matching Oak or Pine flooring. The lighter option is recommended, as the interior window shutters will seem darker once fitted to the windows, you will also benefit from some extra light reflection with lighter colours. Depending on the size of the room, a wooden stained shutter on your windows can be over powering and cut down on light.
Custom shutter colours work well in modern homes and can also offer a funky unique look. Interior designers often choose custom colours to work in with their designs. Colour matches for Dulux or FB colours to blend with your colour schemes or features are available. Other paint colours can be matched but may require a colour swatch. Please note, custom colours are not guaranteed to be an exact match to any samples provided or colour codes, and there is an additional charge for this service.
There are a few standard hinge colours to complement the louvre shutters colours such as White, Pearl and Bisque. Antique Brass, Bright Brass, Stainless Steel and Black are also available when choosing stains.
Small bolts can be pre-fitted to the stiles of shutters, currently these are only available in the metal colour. Sample Colours Shutter colour samples can be requested online to help you decide or to match paintwork in your house to the shutter colours you order.
