Bright colored shutters on the outside of a home are a fairly common sight. A homeowner with truly unique style, however, may choose to add color to their indoor window treatments as well. Bright white shutters are classic and elegant, of course. But in certain spaces you may find a pure white to look glaring or even infantile. Dark colored plantation shutters add an air of sophistication to any space and other alternate colors can bring a lot of pizazz to your place. They can also absorb sunlight more than white. Here are a few of the most popular plantation shutter colors (other than white) that we have available… Black Indoor window shutters in a black finish can make a dramatic statement. They’re well suited for spaces you want kept a bit darker like basements, TV rooms and “man caves.” With the right wall color, a light color for contrast, they can even work well in bedrooms and dining rooms. Black plantations shutters in a bathroom can provide some extra privacy. Pairing them with black and white décor certainly makes for a strong impact. Wood Stains After white, the most popular plantation shutter finish we offer is probably wood grain. You can choose any stain from a whole spectrum of tree woods, from light golden pine to rich red tones and chocolate-y dark stains. Many of these finishes can have a very natural, masculine feel, ideal for cabins and cozy great rooms. On the other hand, yellow wood can have bright, youthful feel, great for cheery kitchens and kids’ rooms. Earth Tones   Plantation shutters painted in earth tones such as solid browns, greens and blues turn any space into an indoor oasis, contributing a playful, breezy vibe to your windows. They need for wall décor becomes less pressing as your windows themselves become an artful focal point. If your windows have them, you may leave window frames white or paint them to match the shutters. Blue plantation shutters are really a bold option that still looks amazing practically anywhere. If you’re nervous about the way a certain bold color will look, you could try first installing your colorful shutters on a small bay of windows and then deciding whether or not you want to install them elsewhere. When it comes to choosing an unconventional plantation shutter, the most important thing to do is to remember to express your personal style!
