How To Decorate With Plantation Shutters


After making the decision to purchase Hunter Douglas plantation shutters decorating your space with these new window treatments is your next big task. Plantation shutters will make a bold statement with any style that you pair them with. Rather you choose a simplistic approach or incorporate colors and draperies into your design, plantation shutters will give your room a classic flair. Let Design 5 give you some pointers on decorating with your plantation shutters in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Focal Point

The simplest way to decorate with your plantation shutters is to make your shutters a focal point in the room. Leave your shutters bare to show off their natural beauty and make your shutters a statement piece in your room. All available Hunter Douglas plantation shutters, Heritance®, NewStyle™, and the Palm Beach™ have exceptional light filtering qualities because of their easily adjustable louvers, which makes them ideal for this bare and beautiful style choice. Your undecorated plantation shutters will go with any type of décor you choose around your room, while still maintaining their natural presence.

Light and Airy

If your décor in your room is light and bright, with lighter and neutral colored fabrics, keep your theme flowing with your plantation shutters by adding light and sheer window fashions to let all the possible natural light into the room. Rather you choose white plantation shutters or any lighter colored stain or paint color, plantation shutters will easily enhance the theme of your space. Keep your window frames painted or stained the same color as your shutters to make your windows appear larger. Don’t hesitate in incorporating color into this bright and airy theme; pops of color throughout are a great way to liven up your space.

Classic Flair

If you have chosen to go with stained or painted plantation shutters consider more color in your décor. Stains and paint on your plantation shutters will allow for more light dilution when the shutters are closed which allows you to play with more bright colors to brighten up the space. Use warm colors tones in your room to enhance the natural wooden stains. If you have decided to paint your shutters, choose an accent color that compliments the shutter’s paint color. Your textiles and window fashions can be much more structured with this style of plantation shutter, but make sure to keep an overall color theme as to not overwhelm the space. If your stain or paint color is dark, avoid dark accent colors because the room will feel too heavy. Enhance you shutters with window fashions that coordinate with your accent color in some way to really bring the room together.
