It’s important to keep in mind the color palette of your home when picking out shutters for it. Most exteriors are designed around 3 main colors. The Base, The Trim, and The Accent.
The Base color refers to the main dominating color of the house. This color will cover most of the exterior of the house and is usually the color most people will think of when thinking of the house. Ex. The “Blue” house.
The Trim is the series of lines running at the base and sometimes in the middle of the house. The Trim is usually colored a white or cream though some homes will use a darker color. Others still will use another more adventurous color on the trim of their homes.
The Accent is the one to pay attention too though. The accent is the color of Doors, windows, and yes, shutters. The accent is the place to get creative with a home’s color palette as these are the easiest parts of a home to replace.
