Many of us do a lot of refreshing in the New Year–we may be refreshing our workout routines, our spending habits, or even our hobbies. If you’d also like to refresh your home–which is a long term investment that deserves a little attention now and then–your exterior is a great place to start. Refreshing your home’s exterior isn’t just about protection from the elements or security; it’s about crafting an aesthetic that resonates with your vision. In this style guide, we delve into the art of custom European Rolling Shutters, exploring color palettes, yard shading, and styling tips that will add value and allure to your home.

1. Color Palette Harmony: Enhancing Your Home’s Facade

Choosing the right color for your custom shading solution from European Rolling Shutters is like selecting the perfect frame for a masterpiece. Your shading solution doesn’t have to be the main character or even the main focus, but it can be an incredible accent. ERS offers many colors to suit diverse tastes and architectural styles. Here are some tips for harmonizing colors:

  • Classic Neutrals: Opt for timeless neutrals like whites, grays, or beige for a sophisticated, enduring look.
  • Bold Statements: Make a statement with rich, bold colors like deep blues, greens, or even burgundy to add a touch of drama to your home’s exterior.
  • Blending In or Standing Out: Match your shutters to your home’s facade for a seamless look, or choose a contrasting color for a vibrant, eye-catching effect.

2. Shading Solutions Tailored to Your Yard: Finding the Perfect Fit

Custom shading here at European Rolling Shutters isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about creating comfortable outdoor spaces so you can get your time back. Consider these tips when selecting the correct type of shading for your yard:

  • Outdoor Activities: Tailor your shading solutions to your outdoor activities. Retractable awnings work well for outdoor dining areas while rolling shutters are ideal for added privacy inside. 
  • Sun Exposure: Identify areas of your yard with the most sun exposure. Use retractable solar screens to maintain a comfortable temperature without sacrificing the view.
  • Pergola Covers: Transform your outdoor oasis with retractable pergola covers, providing shade and an inviting atmosphere.

3. Styling Your Newly Shaded Backyard: Adding the Finishing Touches

After your home is adorned with your perfect custom shading solutions, it’s time to style your shaded backyard oasis. After all, custom shading is about more than just the shading itself. It allows you to spend time with loved ones comfortably in the outdoors. Consider these simple yet impactful tips:

  • Comfortable Seating: Invest in cozy outdoor furniture to create inviting spaces under your shading solutions.
  • Greenery: Add life with potted plants, hanging baskets, or a garden to complement the outdoor vibe.
  • Outdoor Lighting: Extend the usability of your shaded spaces into the evening with strategic outdoor lighting.
  • Decorative Accents: Personalize your space with decorative elements like outdoor rugs, cushions, and lanterns.
