The Benefits And Downsides Of White Window Treatments In Phoenix

February 08, 2022

One of the initial things people observe about your window treatments is their color and if it fits into the rest of the room. Many Phoenix homeowners like white window treatments because the color coordinates with everything. But sometimes, white can also show stains or look sterile. The next time you need to cover your windows, take into account these pros and cons of white window treatments in Phoenix and try our advice for using them in your home’s decor.

The Advantages Of White Window Coverings

Many people believe you can’t fail with white window treatments because they look great with every type of decor. White is fresh and clean. It blends in with other neutral colors and creates an appealing contrast with darker colors. White reflects light as well. White window covers can help make a small, dark room look brighter and larger.

As with other window treatments, white window treatments in Phoenix receive a lot of direct sunlight. But white doesn’t fade to the degree that saturated colors do, especially if you pick products with UV resistance. Most styles of window treatments are available in white, so whether you want sleek roller shades or elegant interior shutters, you can find them in several white hues to suit your tastes.

The Disadvantages Of White Window Treatments

Of course, white window treatments have some flaws too. Typically, window treatments help your room feel welcoming, but if you already have a lot of white in a room, white window treatments can make it seem stark and cold. White also gets boring if you put it with several other neutral colors. If you have a very plain room with few architectural details or color, you wouldn’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 clean on a shutter but not as easy on fabric window treatments. White fabric window treatments such as curtains and shades can turn yellow over time, as well.

How You Can Use White Window Treatments In Phoenix

In spite of some small drawbacks, you’ll likely have no problem with white window treatments in Phoenix. Often you just need the right type of white window treatments. For example, instead of curtains or fabric shades that stain or turn yellow, use white Polywood® shutters. These louvered shutters are manufactured with a solid wood substitute and painted with a finish that resists moisture damage and UV rays. They don’t turn yellow and are very simple to dust and clean.

Polywood shutters can solve many problems with how white window treatments fit into your decor too. The unique texture of their louvers makes them architecturally attractive, so they never appear dull. And their mix of neutral white and understated elegance makes them perfect for any type of decor.

A couple other decor tips can help balance the amount of white in your home too. Paint your walls a bright or bold color and create contrast with the white window treatments of your choice and painted white trim. Or, if you prefer neutral paint, add color to your decor with accents such as lamps, furniture, and rugs to make the room vibrant and cozy.
