Window treatment ideas – with tips for choosing the best plantation shutters for your home
It may sound like a cliché, but windows really are the eyes of your home and the way they are styled can make or break the feel of a room. Not only do your window treatments need to be visually appealing, they also need to be functional by letting in the right amount of light and plantation shutters are fast becoming one of the most sought-after window treatments in homes across New South Wales for those reasons. They’re a great choice for window treatments in homes of almost any style and are a stunning alternative to blinds or curtains.
Tips for choosing the best plantation shutters for your home
At Shutters Quickly, we want you to love every aspect of your home, so if you’re looking for window treatment ideas for your plantation shutters then look no further. Here are some top tips for styling plantation shutters to give you all the inspiration you need:
- Add a touch of colour to a dull room with colourful window treatments.
- Create a relaxing ambiance in your guest room.
- Use plantation shutters to create the perfect window reading nook.
- Plantation shutters for arched, round and other shaped windows.
- Pair your plantation shutters with curtains.
1. Add a touch of colour to a dull room with colourful window treatments
With so much to consider when selecting window treatments, people often become overly focused on choosing the right combination of privacy, light control and material and overlook one major factor – the colour!
Window treatments don’t have to be boring. Let your adventurous side out and bring some cheer into your home by installing colourful plantation shutters. A pop of colour can be all you need to create a focal point in your room and bring your décor together. In fact, even Vogue Australia agrees with us and has hailed 2021 as the year of “colourful revolution” for interior design.
While choosing the colour of your plantation shutters, make sure that you consider the colour of your wall paint and other elements of your home including the furniture. Shutters Quickly has a great selection of plantation shutters that come in every shade – from natural finishes to bright colours for children and teens.
2. Create a relaxing ambiance in your guest room
When you have guests staying at your home, you want to make them feel as comfortable as possible. Depending on the person, some guests prefer different levels of light and privacy in the bedroom.
While one guest may want to keep closed their window treatment for the duration of their stay, others like the light to stream into the room at the break of dawn. By installing plantation shutters on your guest room windows, you can give your visitors total control of their lighting and privacy preferences to make their stay a pleasant one.
You and guests in your home can enjoy the many benefits of having plantation shutters installed in your NSW home including:
- Noise reduction
- Light reduction
- Low maintenance.
3. Use plantation shutters to create the perfect window reading nook
One of the best things in life is finding a cosy spot to curl up in while getting lost in a good book and there’s nowhere better to do this than in your very own reading nook.
An important factor when creating a comfortable reading nook is having ample natural light. However, if you’re reading nook is located near the window, the light could be too bright and maybe strain your eyes or create a glare on your Kindle or iPad.
Plantation shutters can be the perfect solution for filtering the amount of light you need. You can simply adjust the slats to let the right amount of light in. Plantation shutters also come in many different colours to impact the atmosphere of your reading nook.
If space isn’t an issue, you could also install a bookshelf to display all your favourite books and magazines. For all you bookworms with limited space, you can always nip down to your local library to pick up some good reads.
4. Plantation shutters are ideal for arched, round and other shaped windows
Windows can come in all kinds of awkward shapes and sizes but, luckily for you, we’re on hand to help you get the light control and privacy you need using plantation shutters.
With Shutters Quickly’s custom-made NSW plantation shutters, we can create window coverings to fit any shape of window, whether it is angled, curved or any other irregular shape. Unlike other window treatments such as blinds and curtains, plantation shutters will show off your window’s unique beauty while enhancing its usability.
Another big difference between plantation shutters and blinds is longevity. Unlike blinds, plantation shutters are built to last a lifetime and are a great investment for your home. They are, in fact, one of the few window coverings that are proven to add value to your property.
5. Pair your plantation shutters with curtains
Everyone knows that the right curtains can instantly change the look and feel of a room, but what about when they are paired with plantation shutters? There seem to be two types of people in this world – people who love plantation shutters with curtains and those who hate them.
At Shutters Quickly, we value any design solution that will make your home look its absolute best and if curtains improve the look of your home, we say go for it! We believe the best thing about pairing plantation shutters with curtains is the contrast in textures it brings to your space as well as the added benefits of keeping out draughts and reducing noise levels.
Whether you want to create a romantic feel in the bedroom or add sleek lines for a boutique look, we’re sure to have the plantation shutters in New South Wales to suit your curtains. Our plantation shutters come in a wide range of materials including Basswood Shutters, Western Red Cedar Shutters, PVC Shutters and Aluminium Shutters.
