Soften the look of shutters with curtains

Thursday, November 27, 2014

Personally I prefer the look of shutters over curtains. The simplicity of the design means they can be used in most settings, from traditional to modern. They can be custom made to suit different sized windows, window styles or shapes and are available in custom colours and wraps. They really are a great window treatment to work with when styling a room. Unlike curtains, shutters also have the ability to better control light and airflow by tilting the blades to accommodate the weather outside, while offering security simultaneously.

What may seem a downside to some about shutters is that they are hard in appearance and this is where curtains hold an advantage. Curtains provide that feminine touch and finished tailored look to a room. You can set the tone of the room with the choice of fabric and colour of curtains or accentuate the room’s style using curtains as complimentary elements.

Often we assume you can only have one or the other, but why not have both and combine shutters with the gorgeous fabrics of curtains! Utilise shutters for the practical benefits of privacy, security, light and air flow control and soften the look by adding curtains. A decorator's dream!

Shutters for High Use Areas – Be Inspired

Thursday, November 06, 2014

Bathrooms and kitchens are the top two interior spaces for renovation and unless you have done your research and planning, renovating these high use areas can become not only a costly nightmare, but a stressful and overwhelming experience as well.

There is so much to consider after all. From the minor consequences of dust and noise, to the major decisions of how much to spend, what builder to hire and of course the fun part, the design. What kind of finish? What colour or texture? blinds or shutters? The choices are numerous and making the right decision can be difficult.

At All Shutters & Blinds, their consultants know one thing very well – shutters. Of all window treatments, shutters are the superior choice for your bathroom or kitchen. The benefits include:

  • Hardwearing and durable in high-use areas
  • Water resistant or waterproof (depending on material chosen)
  • Aluminium shutters are non-flammable and rust-proof
  • Timber shutters are finished in quality 2-pack polyurethane paint, used in kitchens and high-end cabinetry.
  • They are easily customisable to all window shapes and sizes
  • Available in variety of colours

Below are some design savvy bathrooms and kitchens to inspire you.

So if you’re going to renovate, and you usually only renovate once, you might as well do it right the first time and renovate your bathroom or kitchen windows and doors with shutters. Talk to your All Shutters & Blinds consultant today.
