Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters La Quinta, California (CA) how white plantation shutters can brighten your home.

White and Natural Light

The color of a window treatment is highly important to the color scheme of a room because it is associated with the source of natural light in the room; and natural light plays an influential role in the look and feel of interior décor. White brightens a room because the pigment reflects more light than other hues. Rooms with white plantation shutters feel open and airy and homeowners can enjoy natural illumination that is not blinding.

White as a Harmonizing Neutral Tone

When adding new window treatments to your home matching them to existing décor is important, but it can also be a challenge. White plantation shutters are easy to incorporate because white is a neutral color that goes with almost anything. And because it’s a neutral tone, if your décor changes or evolves in the future to different color palettes you can rest assured that your white plantation shutter will bridge the transitions seamlessly.

Durable and Long Lasting

Not only can you trust that your color selection will stand the test of time when choosing high-quality white plantation shutters, you can trust that the materials and louvers themselves will be just as long lasting. Modern white plantation shutters can be made out of numerous different durable materials including hardwood, vinyl, and state of the art composite materials. Plantation shutters can withstand years of continuous use with little sign or wear or tear so both your style and your shades will endure.

Stand Alone or Layered Treatments

Of all the neutral tones, white is one of the most eye-catching. Which is why white plantation shutters can hold their own when installed as a stand-alone treatment; the bright neutral hue plus the clean lines of plantation shutters creates a polished window fashion. In addition to being a striking neutral tone, white plantation shutters also have a sleek profile and so are easy to place in layered window treatments with drapery or side panels. The addition of a fabric-based window treatment to white plantation shutters softens the overall look and adds additional opportunities for design details like using dimensional textures, prints, or patterns.
