Functional, practical and aesthetically pleasing, shutters and blinds are a perfect window treatment for all areas of the home.
Extremely versatile when it comes to interior design, shutters and blinds come in an endless range of styles, colours, fabrics and materials. A sleek, modern look can be created with motorised roller blinds, while warmth and style can be created with timber plantation shutters.
When choosing blinds or shutters for your windows, it's important to take into consideration the sunlight that goes through the window and which room they're in. Venetian shutters are fantastic for rooms that have direct sunlight, as they can be tilted to keep sun directly out of the room while still keeping it light, while synthetic blinds suit bathrooms as they can be completely shut for privacy, open for ventilation, and won't go mouldy.
Blinds and shutters can be mixed and matched within a room, space or home, but consider repeating the fabric, material or style throughout to create consistency and flow throughout your interior.
