Do shutters and front door have to match?
Our handyman shutter installer, often get asked about whether shutters and front doors have to match. The answer is that they don’t have to match, but they should coordinate well with each other. One option is to use the same color, but a lighter or darker shade of the paint, adding variety without the risk of clashing. Another option is to use complementary colors, such as white shutters with a dark brown door. Ultimately, it’s up to you and what looks best with your home’s overall style.
Should shutters be longer than windows?
Professional handypersons often get asked about the ideal length for window shutters. The answer, unfortunately, is not a simple one. It depends on several factors, such as the material of the shutter (wood, aluminum or vinyl), the style of the window (casement, bay window or double hung), and the type of installation (surface or flush).
Consider, there are a few general guidelines that handymen can follow.
For the most authentic look, we recommend measuring only the window opening not including any frame or trim around it. Typically, the width of your shutters should be half of your total window width. However, if you’re looking for a more customized look, you can experiment with different ratios until you find something that looks good to you.
Many people don’t realize that the color of their window shutters can have a big impact on the overall look of their home. When choosing shutter colors, it’s important to take into account the other elements of your home, such as the trim or roof shingles. You also want to choose a color that complements your home’s base color.
Our handyman suggests looking at your home’s trim and accent colors to help you narrow down your choices. Once you’ve decided on a color, you can then choose from a variety of different shutter materials, such as aluminum, PVC or vinyl.
Whether you’re looking for a classic look of louvered or something more modern like raised panel or board and batten, there’s sure to be a shutter material and color that’s perfect for your home.
