Hard window treatments are well renowned in the window coverings industry as a sensible and reliable addition. The functionality and practicality of a shutter offers an ideal treatment for light control, durability and an investment that has guaranteed longevity. At Sunland Shutters, for example, we focus on these features as major benefits for our customers.
However, it seems like the sense of style that shutters can add to a room is often overlooked. Beyond function, plantation shutters have the ability to appropriately accent a room and create a contemporary and crisp feel. Take that feel and add color, and you’ve got a key component to creating the perfect room setting.
THE LONE SHUTTER
Adding shutters to a home is one thing in itself. Basic shutters most often come in whites and wood stains, and in the right circumstances these options have the ability to generate a chic sense of style. Because white can virtually blend with all other colors, white coverings have a way of refreshing and brightening up a room.
Wood stained shutters have the ability to evoke a comforting, natural feel and, much like white coverings, are neutral among other colors allowing them to blend easily.
THE IMPORTANCE OF COLOR
Adding a shutter with color creates a whole new dimension to the dynamic of a room. Because interior design is based on personal style and the comfort level of a homeowner, colors are the first set of criteria to tackle and window coverings are no exception. If basic whites and wood stains are able to create a sense of comfort as well as a fresh clean look, imagine the possibilities that a handpicked custom color shutter can evoke.
Because of the importance of color in design, a colored shutter will aid in establishing a more specific mood and tone for the space being decorated. Each detail in the design of a room should receive close attention from start to finish and the importance of window spaces should not be forgotten in order to get the most effective overall appearance and feel.
The aesthetics of a home ultimately come down to color combinations, and a colored hard window treatment can perfectly accent a design if done with taste and planning.
The best reason for a homeowner to decide on using a colored shutter is that it combines function and fashion. A custom colored shutter offers consumers an option that includes the properties of a dependable, resilient and practical investment, while also adhering to the demands of style. The colored shutter provides a solid base on which a designer has the option to expand. Soft window treatments can be combined or added later to enhance the appearance of the window and room. That’s why Sunland Shutters introduced a new Designer Series line that offers over 720 eye-catching colors for the style-conscious home decorator to choose from.
This new assortment of colors presents the ideal opportunity for a consumer to add that extra level of personal touch to the home. The Designer Series line offers all the quality guaranteed that our regular PolyCore and Lexwood lines offer, and each panel is individually hand inspected to ensure a flawless finish. At one of Sunland’s recent exhibitions, the project was launched to the industry and the new line achieved immediate appeal to both designers and retail vendors alike because of the design potential that was envisioned. Not to be cliché, but with colors the possibilities are endless.
From playful shades to sophisticated tones, colored shutters are the ultimate window solution when it comes to combining fashion and performance. The days of overlooking style are over when it comes to hard window treatments. I would like to welcome windows to the new color of light.
