Getting a bit tired of your standard window coverings? Daggy curtains that tear and hold moisture. Blinds that, well, look like blinds. Shutters bring something to a room that other window coverings can’t. Sleek and solid, they can turn any window into an architectural feature. Here are some simple ideas for bringing them home.

Island life

Combine half window cafe style plantation shutters with a painted ceiling and white wooden floor to create a sense of refined beach house Fiji island style. A mini holiday home without the packing.

Tied together

Using shutters for doors as well as windows can unify an irregular room. Here smaller windows and doors flow seamlessly.

Smart and sexy

Business like but not cold is the right blend for a home office.  Timber window shutters can help achieve calm in a studious office space, but with a little more panache than the usual office window coverings.

Hidden in plain sight

Timber  Shutters are ideal for a new build property that needs some extra interest. Made to measure shutters can turn a featureless, square window into a pretty light filtering focus.

Throwing some shapes

Using solid timber shutters with deep colours can deliver some serious heritage style points. If your home is a period property and with some of the wonderful quirks that come with older houses, window shutters can be made to almost any shape, so don’t rule out a difficult window just because it doesn’t follow a regular format.

High design

Modern shutters can also bring some period style over what can feel like long, bland expanses of window. Louvred window shutters can allow in huge amounts of light but when closed, can act almost like a solid wall.
