Take A Look:
Go bold at home.
Turquoise and White Beach House
Turquoise shutters will make an all-white beach house stand out without looking cheesy.
Just the Upstairs
If you only have shutters on the upstairs windows, you have an ideal opportunity to add a little color without going overboard.
Colorful Shutters, Neutral Door
For an understated, classic look, keep your door neutral and just paint the shutters.
Match the Flowers
Just think of the pretty paint shades that would match your hydrangeas.
Take a Tip from New Orleans
Take a walk down a New Orleans street, and you’ll be inspired by all of the fun, beautiful house and shutter color combinations you see.
Same Color, Different Shades
If you’ve always wanted a house that’s your favorite color, you can have it. Stay in the same color palette, but go darker on the shutters than the house.
Colorful shutters work on any architecture, even classic, old-school homes.
Subtle Touch of Color
Even the lightest shade of pastel paint adds curb appeal.
Paint the Garage Door, Too
Painting the garage door the same hue as the shutters ties the exterior of your home together.
Add a Painted Window Box
If you have window boxes, paint them the same color as the shutters for a bolder look. If you don’t have window boxes, add them for instant charm.
Bright red is an intimidating commitment, but toned-down, rustic red has mountain-cottage charm.
The More Color, the Better
The shutters, the house, the front door, and the trim can all be different colors and look fabulous together. We recommend getting the help of a designer or contractor for something this bold, though.
You may have never thought about cutouts, but sailboats or starfish for a beach house, or a simple diamond pattern for a cottage would look adorable.
French Door Shutters
Whether on the front porch or back, floor-to-ceiling French door shutters add so much character.
Can’t get enough of the color on your shutters? Paint the handrails to match for another flash of that hue you love.
Even the smallest shutters add curb appeal when they’re painted a bright color.
Coordinate with Porch Decor
Large urns or porch furniture that coordinate with your painted shutters give your home a put-together look.
Match the Front Door
You can’t help but smile when you walk through a colorful front door with matching shutters.
