Shutters can add instant beauty and elegance to any home, but once you've decided to purchase them, your decision-making process isn't complete. You may be stuck wondering how you can select shutter colors that coordinate with your home interior.

If this sounds familiar, you're not alone! Here are some tips from the pros at Eclipse Shutters to help you with your color-coordinating decisions:

  • The Classic Color. Cotton white shutters have become quite common due to their classic elegance and ability to make any room look its very best. If your room is painted in neutral tones, white shutters will easily match the calm and even tone of your space. Alternatively, if you've decided to go with bright, vibrant hues on your walls, white shutters can add extra eye-appeal, focusing visitors' eyes on these lovely window accessories each time they walk into the room. White gets bonus points because you won't have to ;worry about updating your shades if you get bored of the rest of your room's color scheme and need a change.
  • A Touch of Warmth. If you're looking for a way to bring a warmer tone to your interior, you may wish to consider off-white shades such as the Pearl or Vanilla tones offered by Eclipse Shutters. Each of these offers a softer experience than brilliant white, which makes them great for rooms where you intend to relax and unwind, such as your bedroom. Brightly colored accent walls tend to look much warmer when accented by softer shutters, whereas vibrant white will add a distinctive focal point to the room.
  • Define Your Style. What kind of personality does the room in question have? Is it ultra-modern with clean, sleek lines and modern furniture? If so, a white shutter might fit the mood best. Is it a relaxing room with neutral furniture where the family hangs out and enjoys the days' conversation? If this is the case, a softer-toned shutter might enhance the atmosphere optimally.
The most important part of choosing the right color scheme to match your home interior is finding a hue that speaks to you. Looking for a little visual inspiration? Please feel free to browse our Eclipse Shutters gallery, and let us know if you have any questions!
