Why window shutters are the missing piece of your home

Window shutters have remained a part of people’s homes for centuries now and in all that time have maintained themselves as a staple fixture of style and functionality. Whether in a traditional sense such as the Victorian houses of old that still stand or the sleek, metallic apartments of today.

Cafe Style Shutters in the Kitchen

And of course with time moving on, interior styling has moved on with it. As people are well aware, there is no singular design for people’s homes anymore. Even the traditional home owner likes some form of Scandinavian minimalism in the living room now.

So if you do start looking for interior shutters for your home as an alternative to troublesome curtains or fiddly blinds, don’t get swallowed up by the idea that they all look the same, only come in white or that there’s only one type of shutter.

This is certainly not the case. Window shutters go through a rigorous process before they arrive at your door. And part of that process is ensuring you get that colour your desperately want and in the shape you want your shutters to be in.

Plantation Shutters have fitted hundreds if not thousands of homes, offices, restaurants and even the odd boat with window shutters that best represent the diverse personalities of each and every one of our clients as well as their needs. We understand there different needs for different rooms and we cover all those bases with our range of shutter styles.

Arched Shutters in the Bedroom

For instance, you own a house with a sitting room that looks onto a busy street and it’s full of people who peer through your windows in their nosey element. You aren’t a fan. But you love having the sunlight flooding the room. We can easily fix that. Café Style is a shutter shape that covers the bottom half of the window, taking care of the nosey parkers, and leaves the top half open, so you can bask in the glorious sunlight till your heart’s content. And with that decision next comes the choice over the colour and there is plenty to choose from.

We have well over 48 different colours and stain finishes that your shutters can come in and that doesn’t include the vast amount of colours that you can choose from with our colour match option. You want rustic red? Fine. Midnight Blue? Sure. Jungle green? Bit odd, but no problem. This means that no one ever has to settle for their shutters. You dress them to impress. Neutral colours conform to a room’s own colour scheme but to really make them pop out you can opt for the stained finishes, custom colour match options or a simply bold Chai, Clay or a very stoic Mattingley 267.

And beyond the style that your shutters come in, there are a series of choices to be made that will truly make them your shutters. Choose how they fit in the window? What size the slats are? What material are they made of? Do you want a tilt rod?

So with that I hope that some of your questions have been answered and you’re not feeling so in the dark. Just always keep in mind that you dictate the room and the room does not dictate you.
