The Positives And Negatives Of White Window Treatments In Sacramento

February 08, 2022

One of the initial things people notice about your window treatments is their color and how it coordinates with the rest of the decor. Many Sacramento homeowners favor white window treatments because the hue goes with almost everything. But sometimes, white can also stain easily or feel sterile. The next time you want to cover some windows, consider these benefits and drawbacks of white window treatments in Sacramento and try our advice for incorporating them into your home’s interior design.

The Benefits Of White Window Coverings

Many people believe you can’t go wrong with white window coverings because they look nice with every type of decor. White is clean and fresh. It mingles in with other neutral hues and makes for an appealing contrast with darker shades. White reflects light as well. White window treatments can help make an otherwise small, dark room feel brighter and more spacious.

Like all window treatments, white window treatments in Sacramento receive a lot of direct sunlight. Yet white doesn’t fade as much as saturated colors do, especially if you use window treatments with UV resistance. Most window treatment kinds have a white option, so whether you want beautiful louvered shutters or sleek roller shades, you can find them in several white hues to suit your needs.

The Cons Of White Window Treatments

Now, white window treatments also have their downsides. Typically, window treatments help your room feel cozy, but if there’s lots of white in a room already, white window treatments can make it feel dreary and uninviting. White also gets boring if you put it with several other neutral colors. If your room is very plain with few architectural details or color, you don’t want to make it more bland with an excess of white. Lastly, white window treatments show grime and dirt very easily—which is effortless to remove on a shutter but not so easy on fabric window covers. White fabric window treatments such as shades and curtains can discolor over time, as well.

How To Use White Window Treatments In Sacramento

Despite their minor disadvantages, you’ll likely have no problem using white window treatments in Sacramento. Sometimes you just need the right style of white window covering. For instance, rather than fabric shades or curtains that turn yellow or stain, use white Polywood® shutters. These interior shutters are made of a solid wood substitute and coated with a finish that resists UV rays and moisture damage. They don’t turn yellow and are very easy to dust and clean.

Polywood shutters can solve several problems with how white window treatments fit into your decor as well. The special texture of their louvers makes them architecturally appealing, so they never look dull. And their union of neutral white and understated elegance makes them ideal for any type of decor.

A couple other decor tricks can balance the amount of white in your home too. Paint your walls a bright or bold hue and create contrast with the white window treatments of your choice and painted white trim. Or, if you prefer neutral paint, incorporate color into your decor with accents like lamps, furniture, and rugs to make the space cheerful and cozy.
