How you choose to dress your windows can have a huge impact on the interior feel of your home. With windows in almost every room, deciding what to put on them is a huge investment and so should be carefully considered.
The three most common options when it comes to residential window dressing are shutters, curtains or blinds. It is true that we may be a little biased towards shutters, but we also want you to be happy with your decision to invest in these for your home if that is what you choose. Therefore, we thought we would to take the opportunity to talk you through these three options to help you decide if you should be choosing curtains, blinds or shutters for your home.
The good thing about curtains is that you can have as much creative license as you please when choosing them. with an array of colors, patterns and fabrics to choose from, curtains can be the most design friendly when the customer has a very specific or elaborate design idea for their window dressing. Curtains also provide a cosy feel to living spaces and bedrooms with their soft lines and flowing fabric.
If you are on a budget, blinds most certainly have their value in this decision making process. Often the cheapest option, blinds can also be tailored to your decor with a variety of materials, colours and patterns to choose from. In addition to their budget and design benefits, blinds are also one of the best options to block out the heat in the Summer months (when the Great British Summer works its magic).
The only option that can offer different levels of privacy and light penetration are, yes you guessed it, Shutters! With plenty of different styles to choose from (see our blog on which style is best for your home here) options such as cafe style and tier on tier plantation shutters enable you to let light in which maintaining you privacy and visa versa. Shutters are also the most durable option making them a great long term investment for your home.
Available in a number of styles you can opt for traditional plantation shutters often found in period properties throughout older towns such as Hastings, Lewes and Eastbourne or go for a more contemporary design popular with new builds in locations including Hove and Haywards Heath. As bespoke shutter specialists, we custom design and fit our shutters making them the easiest options for rooms with unique shaped and sized windows. Finally, Shutters have a number of added extra benefits in addition to these more obvious ones such as minimizing heat loss in Winter, offering complete blackout when required and adding extra security to your home.
There you have it. There are clear benefits to all three options and it really does depend what you are looking for but if we were going on boxes ticked, Shutters really are the best all rounder!
