Paint them in unique ways
We tend to find the most of our personality in the things that we actively do ourselves, regardless of whether there are mistakes. Because of this, the first, and perhaps most obvious, way to personalize your shutters is to simply paint them yourself in a fun and exciting way. Many people love to hang out with their kids and paint the shutters for their rooms.

This sort of method is cheap, fun, and can bring families closer together. What’s not to love?
Find a very unique style that suits you
You don’t have to decorate your home with the popular plantation shutter style, or with standard blinds. There are a vast assortment of different styles of shutters that derive from a plethora of interesting cultures. From Eastern Asia, to the former Soviet-bloc of Eastern Europe, to the Mediterranean, different designers and architects have had different fascinating ways to design window treatments and shutters.

Match them to the rest of your home
There is an old proverb that says that a single tree does not speak for a whole forest. Likewise, the aesthetic of a home doesn’t lie in just one decorative element, such as your shutters. No, the best home aesthetics exist because everything in a home works together towards a unique and powerful visual statement. In order to make the most of a personal statement with your shutters, the first question that you need to answer is how they will fit in with the rest of the room that they represent. Once you answer that question, it becomes a lot easier to think of ideas.
