Making my own shutters + color choice

Hello, I have plans for some window shutters, which I want to put on a sun facing window. The room gets pretty hot in July/August, am I right that shutters will keep the room cooler?

Also, I mocked up some images of the shutters on my house, with different colors, would be great if you could vote on the best color scheme.

DesignVote : I'm planning to make some shutters for this front bedroom window, because it gets hot during summer with the direct sun. I've been staring at it too long and can't decide on the best color?

Thanks
Jim

Welcome to the forums.

The lighter the color the more light it will reflect, the darker the color the more it will absorb and therefore the hotter it will be.

In order of how I like them.... 1, 3, 2, 4.
Out of the four.... #1 looks the best and is what I would use.

I agree with Pete I wouldn't consider 2 or 4 IMO they stick out like a sore thumb while the other two [especially #1] blend in better.
