Shutter Designs That Go with Cream Walls

5:00PM 05 June 2023

Cream walls have always been a popular choice with homeowners, creating an interior backdrop that’s clean and calming. Whether you’re a fan of the minimalist vibes of Scandi-inspired design or simply prefer a more neutral décor, cream walls provide a versatile canvas to pair with various styles. But what about plantation shutters and how to pair them with cream walls? In this blog, we’ll explore some of our favourite shutter colours and styles and show you how they can bring out the best in your cream walls.

Embrace Contrast: Cream Walls with Grey Shutters

If you want your walls (and shutters) to pop, contrasting colours are the way to go. Luckily, we’ve got lots to choose from, including a wide array of different grey shades. The cool tones of grey shutters bring a look that’s sophisticated and contemporary, while cream walls are warm and inviting. All of this combines to create a juxtaposition that’s eye-catching and certain to jazz up even the drabbest of spaces. Cream walls with grey shutters may not have been your first choice, but maybe now you’ll think twice.

Create Consistency: White Shutters on Cream Walls

When creating a cohesive décor, cream or white shutter blinds and cream walls are a match made in design heaven. The timeless elegance of white shutters beautifully compliments the soft, neutral backdrop of cream walls. It’s the perfect way to create that seamless look you’ve been searching for. Whether your walls have a hint of a yellow undertone or lean towards a more neutral beige, white shutters are sure to bring the best out of your space.

Mix it Up: Limewash and Wood Stains

Looking for something a little bit different? Natural wood stains and limewash finishes are two great options for complementing cream walls. They add depth, character, and texture to any space, which can be particularly important if you feel your cream walls are holding back your design options.

Wood stains are perfect for creating a warm and organic atmosphere within a room, helping to bring a touch of nature to the indoors. Whether you prefer lighter hues like our Beach White or richer tones such as Wenge or Antique Brown, you’re sure to find the look you’re after.

Conversely, if you’re after something a little more rustic or aged, limewash finishes are the way to go. With their grained and (almost) shabby appearance, they’ll bring a spot of vintage charm and subtle texture to your home. Perfect for taking your cream walls up a notch or two.
