When choosing wood shutters for windows, the style of your shutter defines the entire feel of the window. Slatted shutters can be designed to appear modern or traditional, depending on your selection of wood material and slat size, larger sizes tend to appear more modern. Solid panel shutters are a favourite for those who want to keep a traditional Victorian look for their windows, in keeping with the old English bay windows with folding solid coverage.
Of course material and wood type is a major consideration for your wood shutters for windows. Choosing a poplar hardwood will give your shutters a smooth finished look, great to modernise a traditional design. While an elm wood will add to your traditional feel, the deep grain gives for a more premium hand crafted appearance – favoured by many.
A common use of solid panels is in children’s bedrooms. This is mainly down to the increased light blockage. When using wood shutters for windows in a bedroom you must consider small amounts of light through the gaps between panels; solid panels remove this small amount of light between louvers. Due to this consideration we would normally recommend a solid shutter for a child of 0-7 years of age due to those early bedtimes and late summer sun!
A further design aspect of solid wooden shutters is the way they are constructed. You can either select a raised panel, adding flourish to traditional rooms – much in keeping with our previously mentioned Victorian theme. You can also choose to take a Shaker style with simplistic design, more suited to a modern or minimalist décor.
