When it comes to designing a space, window furnishings have traditionally been an afterthought. However, the reality is that they’re a stylish addition that can bring a sense of beauty and functionality to any space. All you have to do is choose the right ones.
With the luxury of endless options at your fingertips, the perfect window coverings will become clear after answering a few key questions, and today we’re focusing on Timber Plantation Shutters.
Inside or outside?
If the space you’re styling is inside, solid, sustainable plantation shutters are a contemporary way to add value to the room while giving you more control of your natural light. Aluminium external shutters on the other hand are both sophisticated and practical, give your home enduring protection from wind, rain sun and heat – all without sacrificing beauty for privacy.
69mm, 89mm or 114mm blades?
The popularity of the 89mm blade comes down to both its versatility and its ability to add a modern touch to a contemporary home. Victorian homes – or other styles of Gothic influence – are best suited to 69mm blades that will really reinforce a traditional feel.
Best suited for external purposes, the 114mm blade is for you if you’re wanting that architectural wow factor.
Centre control or no centre control?
Truthfully, the centre control bar is more about style than function. Your blades will open and close in unison with or without them, so it’s more a preference of whether you like the traditional feel of a control bar. This design feature is available with all of our shutter blade sizes.
