A common misconception about shutters is that they only work in classic/traditional style homes. This is not true at all. Here are 4 reasons as to why shutters work well in modern homes

Shutters Are Angular

Angular and clean geometry is a key characteristic in every modern home. Almost all the furniture in modern homes consist of rectangular and symmetrical designs. This is usually applied to couches, tables, carpets, etc. Window shutters take this idea and expand on it, as both the shutter frame and the pallets can be completely rectangular. Installing them will only complement what is already a trend in your home. 

Shutters Can Be Installed Using Any Colour

Most modern homes use neutral colour pallets that are easy on the eyes. The same can be said for the shutters that are installed in your home. Greys, whites, and lighter colours that compliment your furniture can be used for your shutters. Unlike both curtains and blinds, shutters can be custom painted into whatever colour you’d like. It is a lot harder to find a curtain/blinds set that perfectly matches the colour scheme of your house. If the colour you choose matches the accent colour of your home, you will be impressed with the results. This is why installing shutters is the perfect solution for adding a window covering in a modern home.

Vinyl Shutters Are The Perfect Texture

Not only are vinyl shutters aesthetically pleasing to look at, but the smoother texture of the vinyl is a better match for the overall theme of a modern home. The smooth texture will have the shutters blend in with the walls surrounding them. Vinyl shutters compliment the simplistic interior design of many modern houses. Installing them in your modern living room is the perfect fit.

Natural Light

Another characteristic many modern homes seem to follow is that they take advantage of natural light far more than traditional homes. Installing shutters allows the consumer to let in just the right amount of light. Unlike curtains, shutters can distribute the external light throughout the house evenly. Using natural sunlight strategically will perfect the modern aesthetic you were trying to achieve.
