Plantation shutters work well as a standalone window treatment, but you can also pair them with fabrics as well. Long curtain panels gives them an elegant look, and can be placed on either side of a window to soften the edges. Curtain panels should be of a heavy material so that they can block the rays of the sun entering your home. Use light and bright colors for curtains, as they tend to look more attractive in most cases.

It is not necessary to match the panels with your windows. Most people tend to pick the same color shutter for their windows, but this doesn’t mean you have to follow suit. Sometimes it’s good to mix and match. The more you experiment with your shutter panels, the more attractive they will tend to look. The next time you consider a shutter panel, pick one that contrasts best with your window. Remember, the color and finish should look good and pair well with each other. Beyond this, you can paint the slats of the shutter as well, so that next time the slats are open it reflects a different color.
Use Shutters Smartly

These days, the definition of style is changing immensely and when we talk about lifestyle and home décor,it seems that just about everything can be used in many new ways.
