Do you have a favorite color? Have you ever thought about why it’s your favorite color? It’s interesting how certain colors can evoke emotion differently for everyone. When it comes to finding the perfect color for your home’s exterior shutters, there are a plethora of avenues you could explore. See which one stands out the most to you!
Now the most obvious shutter colors out there are white and black. These colors can be easily paired with common home exterior color schemes. There’s no doubt that white and black shutters provide a clean, classic look that definitely brings the entire ensemble together. Black is actually our most popular shutter color and no matter the color of your home, black shutters will make your home look bigger and more inviting.
While traditional shutter colors can look stunning on any home, sometimes something bold really helps make your home stand out for all the right reasons. Green shutters, red shutters or even blue shutters are a great way to make a statement! However, if they aren’t grabbing your attention, try going with a more subtle, muted color, which we’ll get into momentarily.
Soft, soothing, and comforting are just a few ways to describe subtle tones of color. While soft blues, muted greens, tan and gray shutters may fill your soul with warmth like that first sip of coffee first thing in the morning, this same logic applies to your home’s aesthetic as well! Do yourself a favor and take a stroll outside your home and see if a subtle color for your exterior shutters seems to be the best route to venture down.
Sometimes, color is used as a way to complete the sought-after look we crave from time to time. Do you ever get that feeling like something’s missing from your home’s exterior? Take it from us, exterior shutters are a great way to tie the look of your home together, much like cufflinks accompanied by a neatly pressed suit and tie.

If you’re one who enjoys the thrill of matching and coordinating outfits with colors and patterns, this is just for you! As you may know, there are certain patterns and styles of clothing that look better in certain colors. The same applies to exterior shutters⎯ That’s right, red panel shutters may fair better on a brick farmhouse style home over a coastal blue beach home. Though that’s a pretty obvious example, take some time scrolling online to see which shutter style goes best with certain home styles.
