Why will Shutters With Curtains look great in my home?
The look that Shutters With Curtains creates is becoming increasingly popular, particularly in Coastal areas. This is mainly because the shutters are functional, protecting the furniture from overexposure to light and salt, while the curtains add that cosy, homely look to the décor. The beauty of Shutters is that they are easy to install, control and keep clean. They also offer complete privacy while still letting in the light. Mixing plantation shutters with curtains allows you to further control this privacy and light allowance. Aesthetically, the contrast of a horizontal shutter with a vertical curtain works harmoniously in both style and function. If you are worried about horizontal plantation shutters making your room appear shorter, adding curtains will provide visual height. (If you hang the rod as close to the cornice or ceiling as possible, well above the shutters, you will give the illusion of height in the room). So why not be bold in your design tastes and mix Shutters With Curtains to create a modern look. For more ideas or information on our range of Shutters and Curtains, contact us.
