To determine how well a window treatment will work in your home, you have to evaluate three factors: style, material, and color. These days there are many, many styles to choose from. Though, it seems there has been a significant shift in trends toward wide-slat blinds and shutters made of wood or faux wood—and the overwhelmingly popular color choice is white.
Why are white blinds and shutters the most in-demand on the market? The team here at Blinds & Drapery Showroom has the answers!
White = timeless
White décor features are timeless, classic, and always in style. In fact, white window treatments of all kinds have been a mainstay for many years—wide-slat blinds and shutters taking the lead in the last decade or so. No matter what color you fancy or what new trend hits the market or goes out of style, white will always be a complement. Further, your space can be as detailed and intricate in décor as you want—or as plain and basic as you please; crisp white will still be in style.
White = design freedom
The home is the extension of the occupant’s personality, is it not? Yes! You likely want to fully express yourself through the décor. Very few window treatment options give you ultimate freedom to do so as do white blinds or shutters! Here’s how:
- Break whatever rule you want to break! White blinds or shutters do not require you to match your window treatments to your trim. White looks lovely next to any paint color, stained wood, etc.!
- A beautiful complement! White is arguably one of the best neutral colors to use in home design. White will not force you into a specific pallet (to be stuck with for years to come).
- Combinations welcome! Combining white shutters or blinds with other window treatments is a great way to add contrast and depth to your space.
White = maximum energy efficiency
This may come as a bit of a surprise to many. You see, when people think about energy efficiency, very few think about their window treatments. They think about their HVAC systems, their window frames and glass… But, shutters and large-slat blinds are an extremely effective way to be “green.” The can block up to 28 degrees of temperature flow through your windows. Here in Bryn Mawr, PA, energy efficiency means a lot. Our winters get COLD! So, what does the color white have to do with energy efficiency? Well, revisit grade school teachings: light colors reflect light, and dark colors absorb; remember? The lighter the blinds and shutters, the more protected your home is from amped-up sunlight heat which causes fluctuations in your heating and cooling system.
