Why white is a good design choice

With the ability to lighten even the darkest of rooms, opting for a fresh shade of white, will bring your room to life by brightening your home. This is even proven to improve your positive mental health and wellbeing!
It has been said that “white goes with everything,” which is true!
Not only do white shutters give your room a fresher look and compliment the current décor but they are also an excellent choice for those who like to redecorate and often change a room’s colour scheme. With their versatility and simplicity, white shutters can work in both light or dark and small or large rooms and with their endless style, they are sure to withstand the test of time.
Are white shutters harder to keep clean?
Now, we know what you are thinking, especially those with children and pets. Will white shutters make dust and stains appear more visible? This is a perfectly reasonable question, and if we were talking about curtains or blinds, we would say 100% to avoid white. However, shutters are in fact, the easiest window dressing to keep clean, even the whitest of white shade! Shutters are so low maintenance they only require a quick dusting or wipe, taking a matter of minutes, so don’t let pet hairs and tiny fingerprints put you off.
Another bonus to white window shutters
We could talk all day about how beautiful, elegant and all-around perfect white shutters are but did you know about their energy efficiency feature? Shutters are an excellent insulator for your home in the colder months and ventilate your home in the warmer months, but what does this have to do with the colour choice? Well, lighter colours tend to reflect heat while darker colours absorb it. Opting for white plantation shutters can help your home remain cooler in those sunny months as they reflect the sun’s rays, unlike the darker shades.
