Give your Windows a Contemporary Winter Look with Window Shutters

Ok so I find dressing windows one of the hardest things to do when I’m decorating a room. I’m about to redo the living room here at home and I’m looking at our bay window in despair. It feels like retailers just don’t provide any really great curtains (and I do love curtains) and getting them made is so expensive, so I look to other ideas. One thing I’m really considering is window shutters. Now I know they’re not the least expensive option, but they have real longevity and incredible versatility. I can be sure that however I change-up the room, they aren’t going to jar with any new decor. window shuttersNow we’re quite used to seeing window shutters on the outside of period properties but there’s been a growing trend over the last few years for home owners to put them inside their homes. As a form of window dressing they offer some great benefits.

As I mentioned they will last a very long time, and being neutral in design, they’re never going to go out of fashion or style and will work with any decor scheme you choose to use in your home.

Whether you prefer a more traditional or country cottage look or veer towards something minimal and contemporary, window shutters are a great choice; neat, clean and sophisticated.

Give your home a contemporary feel with window shutters. Would you use these in your home? They can look stunning and add an air of sophistication into any room. I like the look of companies like Diamond Window shutters, who offer all kinds of shutters  with a really personal touch. When you’re investing in a product like this, you’ll need to invite a team member into your home, and it’s important that you strike a rapport and like that person. It’s something to consider when you’re choosing the company to work with.

But mostly you’ll want to look at the range on offer. After all, this is something you’re going to be looking at for quite some time, so you want to ensure you get the perfect product for your home.

So did you know there are all type of shutters on offer. Diamond Shutters offers these for example:


So much choice on offer, it’s tricky to know what to go for, but I like that you can add your own personality to the selection.

Are window shutters something you would like to introduce into your home?

Do you already have window shutters installed? If so, what do you think? I’d love to know to help me make my decision.

    I got some new ideas from this post Jen – Thanks. I may invest in some window shutters, it stays bright in this part of the world until late in the night.

    I cleaned my fly screens recently for the first time, really surprised on how dirty they actually were.
