Happy New Year everyone.

The New Year always makes me think of making changes, re-organizing and even re-decorating.  Something as simple as rearranging the furniture can give a room a whole new look.  Add a fresh coat of paint (changing the color, of course) and its an entirely different room!

Window treatments can help in that effort.  If you have worn out window treatments, or treatments that you'd just like to change, try new shades, draperies or shutters.  You'll be amazed at what a difference it will make to the entire room.

Let your wall color and window treatment color contrast for a dramatic look.  Popular wall colors right now are raspberry, dark chocolate brown, light blue, burnt orange and lime green.  Those colors are accentuated when you install white or lighter colored shutters or shades. 

If your wall colors are lighter and more neutral (whites, sand, soft yellow), then choose a darker window treatment color such as dark brown, natural colors (shades), crimson, or midnight blue.  Colorful drapery patterns against a neutral wall color can really pop.

Whatever you end up with, enjoy the change to your room and remember that Sunburst is here to help whenever you're ready.  Happy re-decorating! And Happy New Year from Sunburst Shutters.
