Why are white shutters so popular?

For over a hundred years, white has been the window frame colour of choice in the UK. As such, white shutters on house windows have also been the go-to shade.

Recently, different window frame colours have come into fashion. It’s not uncommon to see grey, brown, and even black frames on homes and commercial properties.

The thing is, while stylish from the outside, these colours often limit what can be done with a home’s interior decor. So, even though exterior frames are sometimes a bold colour, they’re often matched with white interior frames.

As such, white wooden blinds/shutters are still the most popular choice – even when twinned with a contrasting exterior frame.

High-quality window shutters that we guarantee won’t fade

Coloured window dressings – such as curtains and roman blinds – have had a reputation for fading when exposed to sunlight.

This has also been the case with early coloured double-glazing units. Because of this, people have historically opted for pale window dressings and frames – so any fading due to sunlight is minimised.

Today, innovative new materials and processes mean that fading is almost entirely a thing of the past.

In fact, new shutters from Shuttercraft come with ‘colour fastness’ built into our warranty.

Despite this, the preference for white shutters remains. Your home is your own – so you’ll never face any pressure from our team on which colour shutters you choose – but whatever your final choice is, you can be confident your wooden shutters will look their best for years to come.

The benefits of white plantation shutters

The look of white window shutters can transform the look of the whole room – but when you look at the finer details, you’ll realise they come with a host of benefits beyond their good looks.

Take a look at some of the benefits different styles of white shutter could bring to your space:

  • Bedroom windows and white shutters
  • Control the light throughout your home
  • White window shutters: Interior privacy
  • Simple maintenance of window shutters

Bedroom windows and white shutters

UK homes are subject to a huge variety of light conditions throughout the year. In the height of summer, the sun can illuminate your home for over 16 hours – sometimes making it difficult to keep your body clock in check.

Shutters are a great way to control the light on your terms – giving you a good night’s sleep all year round.

If you’re looking for maximum light reduction, you may even decide to explore a white plantation shutters/white blind ‘shutter and shade’ combination – ideal for shift workers or those who benefit from an even darker room while they sleep.

Control the light throughout your home

It’s not just your bedrooms where light control is important – and as such, we can create shutters that give you control over the light in your living room, bathroom, or any other space in your home.

White shutters can be made to match your window perfectly. Perhaps you’d like a two-tier shutter – where the lower tier can remain closed while light floods in the top tier?

Or maybe you’d like white cafe-style shutters that leave the upper window completely open to daylight?

Choose from an almost endless range of designs and louvre sizes.

White window shutters: Interior privacy

Almost all UK homes are overlooked from some angle – whether that’s from neighbouring properties or passing traffic on roads or footpaths. If you’d like to take back control of your privacy, white hardwood shutters are the perfect way to do it.

The louvres – or ‘slats’ – in your new made-to-measure shutters can be angled to allow for privacy while at the same time making sure you still get natural light in your room.

While curtains and blinds are often either open or closed, shutters allow for a middle-ground that combines invigorating sunlight and relaxing privacy.

Simple maintenance of window shutters

White shutters may sound like hard work to keep clean – but in fact, the opposite is true.

White wooden shutters are quick and easy to maintain.

A simple brush from a feather duster and an occasional wipe with a damp cloth will ensure your shutters are always looking their best.

What’s more, shutters don’t attract or trap dust and allergens like fabric window dressings – so you get exceptional style with no worries about pet hair, pollen, particles, or any expensive cleaning methods.
