The Pros And Cons Of White Window Treatments In Atlanta

February 08, 2022

Something others initially observe about your window coverings is their color and how it matches the room overall. Many homeowners like white window treatments because the hue goes with almost everything. But sometimes, white can also feel plain or show stains. The next time you want to cover your windows, think about these benefits and drawbacks of white window treatments in Atlanta and follow our tips for using them in your home’s interior design.

The Pros Of White Window Treatments

Many people say you can’t go wrong with white window treatments because they look good with all kinds 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 covers can help a small, dim space look bright and larger.

As with all window treatments, white window treatments in Atlanta get a lot of direct sunlight. Yet white doesn’t fade the way deeper colors will, especially if you use products with UV protection. Most window treatment styles have a white option, so whether you want beautiful interior shutters or sleek roller shades, you’ll find them in many white hues to suit your preference.

The Cons Of White Window Treatments

Of course, white window treatments also have some drawbacks. Normally, window treatments help a room feel homey, but if you already have lots of white in a room, white window treatments can make it feel stark and cold. White also looks boring if you put it with too many other neutral colors. If your room is very plain with few architectural details or color, you don’t want to make it look more dull with too much white. Lastly, white window treatments show grime and dirt very easily—which is simple to clean on a shutter but not so easy on fabric window treatments. White fabric window treatments such as shades and curtains can turn yellow over time, as well.

How You Can Use White Window Treatments In Atlanta

In spite of some minor drawbacks, you’ll likely have no problem with white window treatments in Atlanta. Sometimes you just need the correct type of white window covering. For example, instead of fabric shades or curtains that stain or turn yellow, opt for white Polywood® shutters. These interior shutters are fabricated with a solid wood substitute and painted with a finish that resists UV rays and moisture damage. They don’t become yellow and are very easy to dust and clean.

Polywood shutters can solve many problems with how white window treatments fit into your decor too. The special texture of their louvers makes them architecturally attractive, so they never appear boring. And their pairing of neutral white and simple elegance makes them ideal for all types of decor.

A few other decor tricks can balance the amount of white in your room too. Paint your walls a bright or bold color and create contrast with your favorite white window treatments and painted white trim. Or, if you like neutral paint better, incorporate color into your decor with accents like lamps, rugs, and furniture to make the room lively and inviting.
