It is that time of the year again when the leaves are falling, pumpkins are out and things are taking a spooky turn. If you are looking to add a little Halloween spirit to your home this fall, consider a change of interior lighting from Colorado Shade and Shutter. Our wide selection of blinds and shutters means you have plenty of options to choose from, many of which are great for decorating at Halloween time.

Movie Night

There is no better way to celebrate Halloween than spending an evening curled up on the couch watching your favorite horror movies. An easy way to make the experience even better is with a simple lighting change like plantation shutters. These easily-adjustable blinds come in a wide range of materials and designs, which means that interior design matching is as simple as can be. With fast and easy louvered control, you can raise or lower the natural light level in your television room so that the mood is just right for some spooky movie fun.

A Perfect Canvas

Believe it or not, windows, shutters and blinds are a perfect canvas for Halloween decorations. Adding accents to your windows is great, because they work in both directions, for those inside and those on the outside looking in. Consider adding decorative cobwebs around window frames and on shutters. Your local party supply store is sure to have easy-to-cleanup cobwebs, and plenty of other great Halloween accessories. Plantation shutters are also a great staging area for small decorations. The louvers can act as small shelves for plastic skulls, a bloody prop knife, or any manner of ghoulish Halloween ornaments. Adding drapes to your windows is another easy way to set the mood and enhance lighting. Use dark colors or consider tattering up the edges of your drapes to give them that haunted look.

Additional Lighting

Build off of the natural aesthetic of your home’s blinds with the addition of some new lighting for Halloween. A candelabra or a lantern hung along the edge of a window sill can really enhance the spooky feel of your home, especially if you are getting ready to dive into some of your favorite horror movies. Blinds are only going to allow you to control natural sunlight, so adding artificial light with different colors is a great option. Purple or orange bulbs are a great way to enhance the Halloween feel.
