For the best visual effect, you should try to maintain color contrast between your house and your exterior shutters. For a bolder look, black shutters on a light or neutral colored house works great.

At Southern Shutters & Blinds, our goal is to help customers from Austin and beyond end up with window treatments that perfectly match the results they have in mind. How can we do that? Having our manufacturing facility helps. So does a commitment to great customer service.
But as important as both of these are, ending up with a window treatment that looks modern and beautiful relies on you having a plan. When you think about what you want your windows to look like, you might want to keep some of these tips from HGTV in mind.
First, avoid using heavy window coverings in your final look. Instead, opt for the kind of simple, elegant shades you’ll find for sale at our Manor and Georgetown locations.
Keep it light
When thinking about how to decorate your windows, it’s a good idea to choose colors that are subtle but also contemporary. It’s also good to consider the way your shades will filter light.
Don’t forget about texture
In relation to the first tip, you don’t want your windows to look busy, but it can help if you create a look that has some texture. Rattan, bamboo, and other fibrous materials are currently popular choices.
Do you have a plan in mind for your windows? Then we hope you’ll come to Southern Shutters & Blinds to speak with one of our team members. We have locations in Georgetown and Manor, and we’re happy to help customers from San Antonio, Georgetown, Austin, Round Rock, Liberty Hill, and beyond.
