Your home says a lot about you. It reflects who you are, what you like, and where you are in life. It’s easy enough to customize the interior of your home with all the things that match your style — you may hang fancy art prints, splurge on a funky rug, or choose paint colors that correspond with your laid-back personality. But what about the exterior of your home? That, too, is an opportunity to show people what excellent taste you have — and you can do so (while also adding some serious curb appeal) with customized shutters! 

Expressing Your Personal Style

Whatever you want your home to say about you, the shutters you choose can help in a big way. Whether you consider your home a sanctuary tucked away in the hills or an eco-friendly escape in the middle of the city, shutters can reflect an overall feeling and really tie the exterior together. When you are considering what type of shutter to choose, think about the following personalize-able details:

  • Color: Warm red, sleek black, or natural wood grain all tell a different story — make it the one you want to tell about your home. 
  • Location: Where you put your shutters can make a big difference. They are a great way to draw attention to a certain area — like the big porch you love so much, or those sweet second-story windows that tie the place together. 
  • Overall theme: Exterior shutters can be used to convey several themes ranging from formal and serious/colonial to calm or cute. The hard part may be knowing which one fits you best!
