Creating a Classic look with your shutters

Creating a Classic look with your shutters

We begin our lifestyle series posts with the Classic slat size as it is the traditional size. Classic is defined as a simple, elegant timeless style of the highest quality that isn’t subjected to changes in fashion trends. Classic never goes out of style it is around for the long haul. If you are looking to create an interior that will last for years to come classic is the way to go.

When it comes to shutter design a classic look translates to a smaller louvre. A smaller louvre means more louvres per panel of shutters, which decreases the amount of light coming into the room. Classic shutters are perfect in rooms that have a street view as they allow for more privacy then a larger slat size. The smaller louvre also gives a cosier feel to the room. The classic shutter slat has been around for the longest for one simple reason it is a timeless simple design that drew customers to shutters in the first place.

However, if you want the classic style but also more light flowing into the room you could always try café style shutters. This shutter style is only installed on the bottom half of the window allowing light to flow into the room but still providing the room some privacy, giving you the best of both worlds.

To complete your classic style shutters colours recommended would be white, neutrals or a dark rich wood stain if going for a more sultry and classic interior. For a classic interior, a high-quality wood shutter such as the White Teak range would probably be the most suited to this style. This is because the style is timeless so you need a shutter material that will last a long time and is of high quality. The traditional style tilt rod can be placed in the centre or offset to the side of the shutter panels and is also another feature that is likely to complement your classic interior. 

Next week we are going to be talking about the In Vogue slat size, our trendiest slat size.

I love my new blinds. They are high quality, look beautiful and were at the most competitive price. The fitters were also very polite and efficient.

Plantation shutters visited my flat 20 January 2022 to measure, discuss slat size and material, and give me a free estimate which I was happy with.
