Here at DIY Shutters, we'll design your made-to-measure shutters for your own home to fit the exact size and shape of your windows. But one of the best part is getting to choose the colour that'll bring the most out of your windows.

When choosing your DIY window shutters, design is very important. But so is colour. You'll want to pick a shade that works best with your interior, without complete overwhelming the space.

Yes, the finer details of DIY Shutters are all important, such as the hinge colour and the quality of the materials (you won't find any MDF here), but it’s the colour that will grab your visitors' attention.

So, with that in mind let’s take a look at some of the most popular plantation shutter colours and help find the right one for you.

White Window Shutters

First and foremost, let's cover the classic: white shutters. White plantation shutters will instantly brighten up any room. If your walls, windows surrounds, or transoms are white (they usually are), then white shutters will blend in effortlessly. They'll bring some extra brightness into the room, without sticking out like a sore thumb. 

White shutters are our best seller for a reason. Clean and incredibly versatile, they'll will tie in with neutral décors and maximalist interiors alike. This classic shutter colour will fit into your home so seamlessly that they'll look like they’ve always been there. Colour trends will come and go, but white shutters will always come out on top.

Grey Plantation Shutters

Of all the DIY shutter colours, we think grey might be the most misunderstood. Grey plantation shutters are truly timeless, work wonderfully with numerous styles and aesthetics within the home.

If you’re unsure which colour to choose, and want to enjoy the function of shutters without having them stand out too much, then grey shutters are a great option. 

Our traffic grey shutters are a darker shade, making them the perfect match for the Hygge and Japandi interior design trends.


Cream Plantation Shutters

If you're after something in between the arresting brightness of white and the cosy warmth of grey, cream is the perfect solution.

Warming and cooling in equal measure, they're a favourite in modern and traditional homes alike. Cream is also one of the most popular colour trends of 2024, so if you're looking to up your home's style points, these are the ones for you.
