If you are looking to switch out your drapery for timeless window treatments that are easy to maintain, you could be deliberating on plantation shutters. However, if you want continuity in your home, you could be thinking that plantation shutters may not be the right solution for your residence since these shutters have a formal appearance that would make them look out of place in casual spaces. But this does not have to be the case. What some people are unaware of is that plantation shutters are not solely available in timber. Instead, they come in a variety of materials, and this makes them a versatile choice for any home, as you are assured that you will find plantation shutters to suit the ambience of the rooms in your house! If you are sceptical about this, keep reading for how you can match the best plantation shutters to the various spaces in your home.
Your kitchen and your bathroom
Although, at the outset, the kitchen and the bathroom do not seem to have anything in common, they do share a major characteristic. And that is that they are wet rooms. Both these spaces are vulnerable to spills, splashes of water, humidity and so on. Consequently, these rooms are also prone to mould infestations, more so if they do not have sufficient ventilation. Fortunately, with the right plantation shutters, you can go a long way in keeping these spaces mould-free. The aluminium is rust-resistant, so you do not have to worry about the wet conditions in these rooms causing premature corrosion. Secondly, wide louvres on the aluminium shutters will ensure maximum ventilation in the kitchen, whereas the thin louvres will be ideal for maintaining privacy in the bathroom while facilitating ventilation.
Your living room/dining room/study
If you have any rooms in your home that are characterised by an elegant interior design scheme that oozes grandeur, such as rooms in Baroque, Carolean, British colonial or other elegant styles, then you should consider plantation shutters that will complement this feeling of opulence in the room. In this case, classic wooden shutters will do the trick. These plantation shutters have an undeniable old-world charm that people will typically associate with grandeur. And if you have timber accents in the space, you could match the trim of the wooden shutters with these accents to make them appear like a seamless part of the room. The great thing about wooden plantation shutters is that they are great sound insulators, making them ideal for spaces in your home that demand peace and quiet.
