Living room shutters

Whether it’s winding down after a long day or enjoying a glass of wine with friends, the living room is a haven for relaxation – and your window dressings should mirror that. Being as versatile as they are stylish, here’s why shutters are a must-have in your living room.

Why choose shutters for your living room?

As one of the most-used rooms in the home, living rooms reflect the character and style of the home owner – and injecting personality into it is an aesthetic-must. Shutters allow you to do just that. Whether you go for a solid panel or louvered style, their clean lines and subtle elegance will allow you to create the precise style statement you’re after.

Not only stylish, living room shutters offer unrivalled practical benefits too. If your living room is street-facing or you’re conscious of passers-by seeing into your home, shutters provide a level of privacy and flexibility that other window dressings can’t.

What shutter style is best for living rooms?

If you have tall living room windows, then our tier on tier shutters are well worth considering. Divided into upper and lower sections, their partitioning allows for one half to be opened and the other closed – allowing for complete privacy whilst light fills the room.

Our full height shutters make any sized window space look great. Offering a smart finish, their full-covering nature lends themselves to being a real talking point of a room.

If you have a street-facing living room, then our cafe style shutters may work best for you. Providing coverage over as much of your window as you like, cafe style shutters are ideal for achieving the difficult balancing act between privacy and light control.

Living room shutter finishes

Whilst neutral white shades tend to be the most popular choices for living room plantation shutters, we also offer bolder options to suit your home interior. Our custom colour shutters cost just 10% more than our standard colours, and can be matched to virtually any shade you choose – we’ll even provide a custom sample so you can ensure the paint matches your exact requirements. Go traditional, go bold – the choice is yours!

If a natural wood finish is more fitting, Paulownia stained hardwood range comes in a variety of wood stain options, from lighter tones like oak through to to deep dramatic varieties like walnut and matte black.
