Window dressing Kitchen

The kitchen is often deemed the heart of the home, with homeowners spending more active time here than in any other room. Whether it be entertaining friends, preparing meals, or simply having some down-time, the kitchen is without a doubt an active space.

As a result, the design of our kitchen is really important, from the smaller design details, such as surface finishes, through to the lighting in the space, creating the right ambience in this room is essential. Not only should practicality be a main consideration but ensuring that this busy hub is designed not only for today but also for years to come, is imperative.

Incorporating kitchen shutters into your space is the perfect solution for dressing kitchen windows. They work particularly well in a kitchen environment as they allow the light to stream in whilst helping to hide unsightly views such as outdoor bins. Additionally, issues such as water damage and maintenance aren’t a problem for shutters as they can be simply wiped clean if any spills or splashes occur – a common incident in a busy family kitchen and one not solved with curtains and blinds!

Wanting to add some extra light to your kitchen/dining space? Patio doors are a great addition, however, as they reflect ample natural light around the room, this also means that privacy is often spared and as such, these large expanses of glass can be tricky to dress and style. Shutters are a simple, practical solution to window dressing patio doors, not only providing the privacy you may require, but also controlling the light and temperature – perfect for all year round!

Window dressing bathroom

Bathrooms are the ideal place for relaxing and unwinding from a long stressful week. Bathroom shutters are the perfect solution for any bathroom needing a quick fix, turning it from a standard bathroom into a serene and peaceful setting.

The bathroom can be a notoriously tricky space to decorate due to the amount of moisture in the air, so more should be considered when updating it. Shutters are a handy solution for your windows, providing not only style to your space but also the perfect amount of privacy. Perfect for use in high-moisture areas of the home, the Shutterly Fabulous vinyl range won’t warp or get water damaged over time, unlike curtains and blinds. Made from lightweight aluminium and coated in vinyl, these shutters are 100% water resistant, meaning that they’re suitable for use in wet rooms.

Café Style shutters are a great option as they provide that much needed privacy, whilst still allowing the natural daylight to flood the room. Why not think about incorporating cool blue and grey accessories into a scheme, to create an on-trend look in your bathroom. Alternatively, Tier-on-tier shutters can offer great flexibility, as each panel can be adjusted independently.

Window dressing bedroom

The bedroom is the place we spend the most of our time – the hideaway we come to in order to relax and unwind, shutting away the stresses of the rest of the world, and yet, with so much emphasis on the look of our living rooms and kitchens nowadays, we’re all probably a bit guilty of neglecting to give ourselves the bedrooms we deserve.

Your bedroom should be a refuge – a place to escape to after a busy day and a space that fills you with feelings of peace and serenity. One of the easiest ways to update your bedroom and make a real impact on your mood, is to incorporate colours and textures that elicit a calming response from the brain. Colourful Bedroom shutters are a great window dressing idea and can work with natural light to inject colour in an effective and controlled manner. Bedroom shutters enable you to balance the light and privacy in the bedroom, where comfort and well-being are a must.

Solid shutters are a great option, whether you’re looking to insulate your room, add privacy or block out the light at night, the opaque nature of this style will act as an additional protective layer from the outside world.

It’s also worth considering plantation shutters when redesigning your child’s room. Benefits include privacy, heat insulation, light control, but most importantly, unlike curtains or blinds, there are no chords hanging down which instantly eliminates hazards.
