Rule number one is to use your poly or wood shutters to round out the existing decor. They can be attractive, but it’s a mistake to make them stand out when the situation doesn’t call for it. Unless your home interior or exterior lacks enough head-turning elements, it’s usually wise to design them in a less obtrusive manner.
Interior shutters are a great design element because they improve the look of your windows while maintaining their functionality. To make the most of your new shutters, however, you should be able to enjoy every aspect of them, particularly their color. Even if you use the best materials, if the color is not to your liking, you may still want to replace them eventually.
