    Maximise Your Windows' Potential

    Friday, October 17, 2014

    Windows are not the easiest feature of a room to style well, which is probably why most homeowners tend to install familiar furnishings such as blinds or curtains. But if you want to really impress the guests and neighbours, plantation shutters will tick all the design and practicality boxes.

    Shutters are superior to their more traditional window-furnishing cousins – curtains and blinds. Shutter engineering continues to evolve, making them more durable, easier to use and more stylish. During warm and cool months, they provide insulation benefits. They offer total block out of light, whilst providing complete privacy, and when needed, they can open completely to let light and airflow in.

    Here are some inspirational ways to maximise your windows' potential using shutters.

    Modernise


    The simplicity of these shutters offers a modern look. Acting like a wall to provide privacy from the outside, the owner’s of this home, can choose to extend their dining room to include the fresh air and light from outside. The shutters sit on a tracking system, which allow you to push and fold the shutters to one side. 

    Bold Black


    Looking to make a statement? Bold black shutters will do the trick. Shutters are typically a variation of white so going black will definitely turn heads. This black modern timber shutter, far from blend into the walls and furniture, making them a styling piece in their own right.

    Shaped Windows


    Contrary to common belief, shutters are very versatile and can fit any shape or styled window. The bright yellow timber shutter on this diamond shaped window works perfect for this children’s playroom.

    Colour Block


    The opposite of the bold statement look, colour blocking although simple can be very effective in a room. Paint your shutters the same colour as the wall for a clean, simplistic look and add colour and texture in the form of furnishings and home wares to complete the feel.

    Natural Timber


    Looking for a homely natural feel? Then try natural timber shutters. They are a favourite for traditional spaces, but also look great in modern settings. Natural browns and timber grains offer warmth and a sense of homeliness.
