The Pros And Cons Of White Window Treatments In Miami

February 08, 2022

One of the first things people notice about your window treatments is their color and how it matches the rest of the room. Many homeowners like white window treatments because it coordinates with so much. But in some cases, white can also feel sterile or stain easily. In the future when you need to cover your windows, consider these advantages and disadvantages of white window treatments in Miami and follow our tips for incorporating them into your home interior design.

The Advantages Of White Window Coverings

Many people believe you can’t fail with white window treatments because they look nice with every type of decor. White is clean and fresh. It blends in with other neutral hues and creates an attractive contrast with darker shades. White reflects light as well. White window covers can help an otherwise small, dim room look more spacious and bright.

As with other window treatments, white window treatments in Miami get a lot of direct sunlight. Yet white doesn’t fade the way deeper colors will, especially if you use window treatments with UV protection. Most varieties of window treatments have a white option, so whether you want sleek roller shades or beautiful louvered shutters, you’ll find them in several white hues to suit your tastes.

The Drawbacks Of White Window Treatments

Now, white window treatments also have their drawbacks. Typically, window treatments help a room feel cozy, but if there’s lots of white in a room already, white window treatments can make it feel dreary and cold. White also gets boring if you put it with too many other neutral colors. If your room is very plain with little architectural detail or color, you don’t want to make it look more dull with an excess of white. Finally, 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 curtains and shades can yellow with time, as well.

In spite of some minor drawbacks, you’ll probably have no issues with white window treatments in Miami. Often you just need the right style of white window treatments. For example, rather than fabric shades or curtains that stain or turn yellow, opt for white Polywood® shutters. These interior shutters are made from a solid wood substitute and coated with a finish that resists moisture damage and UV rays. They don’t become yellow and are very simple to dust and clean.

Polywood shutters can solve many issues with how white window treatments look with your decor as well. Their louvers’ special texture makes them architecturally attractive, so they never look dull. And their combination of neutral white and understated elegance makes them perfect for every type of decor.

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