Black hurricane shutters are dramatic. They are also elegant and modern. The color black pairs well with most other colors. So regardless of what color your home or home’s overall color scheme is they will look great. But you might not be ready to paint your entire home black. So adding black hurricane shutters is a great way to add this powerful color to your facade. In this guide we’ll discuss the use of black storm shutters on your FL home. You will get some ideas of what they can look like. And we’ll let you know the types of hurricane shutters that are a good fit.
Why Choose Black Storm Shutters For Your FL Home?
Black is bold, classy and powerful. And this means opting for black shutters can help your house stand out from the crowd.
According to Paintzen, the use of black “adds drama and depth and makes a strong visual statement.”
Black Storm Shutters vs Black Exterior Walls in Florida
Painting your entire home black may not be the best idea if you live in a brutally hot place like Florida. The Florida sun may make you regret going for a completely black home. Why? Black is very effective at absorbing and trapping heat. And in the sunshine state that has a tremendous potential to create unwanted inefficiencies when trying to cool your home.
But opting for black hurricane shutters is a great way to add the color to your home without painting the entire thing (or painting entire walls of your home). The shutters can be combined with black doors, trim, garage doors, fences, etc. Incorporating the color in these areas will help you add it in moderation without the added heat (or AC bills).
Types of Black Hurricane Shutters
If you live in a coastal area of Florida you most likely will opt for hurricane shutters vs purely decorative shutters. This, of course, limits the styles of black shutters you have to choose from.
Further limiting your options is that not all hurricane shutters are available in black.
Fortunately, two types of black shutters that are available are two of the most attractive. These include black Bahama shutters and Colonial shutters in black.
Bahama hurricane shutters offer both storm protection and beauty to your home. They truly are the epitome of decorative, functional shutters.
They are permanently affixed over your windows, providing shade and UV control. When a storm approaches they easily close and lock in place to protect the glass.
Bahamas are great for adding a touch of Caribbean style to your home. In some cases they can completely change the look of your FL home for the better with their good looks. They can transform a simple house into something special.
And if you don’t want the traditional Bahama shutters that cover your entire window you can instead opt for Deco Bahama Shutters. These are purely decorative shutters that are installed only to cover a small portion of the top of your window vs. covering the entire window.
And you can get our custom Eurex Shutters PTX™ Bahama Shutters powder coated in any color, including black.

Colonial shutters are similar to the Bahama style because they offer both beauty and protection.
These permanently installed shutters can add a touch of Southern or traditional charm to your FL home. These are rectangular shutters on each side of the window. Colonial style shutters have a traditional look that may remind you of Southern mansions or traditional, northern homes. So they are perfect if you are going for more of a traditional look.
They are made from impact resistant aluminum. And they close to cover your window when a storm is approaching. So this means they offer great storm protection.
And our PTX™ Colonial Hurricane Shutters are available in multiple standard colors, including black.
The color black is dramatic, elegant and modern. Adding it to your home can help create a unique design that stands out. But painting your entire home black in Florida may not be the best idea. One option is to opt for black hurricane shutters. These allow you to add the color to your home’s exterior without the negatives of painting your entire home black. They can help you meet your design, storm protection and efficiency/functionality goals.
