How Shutters Fit Into Both Modern & Traditional Home Decor

Clean and Classic, Versatile Shutters Can Work In Any Space.

A spacious bedroom features shutters on a long window.

In recent years, shutters have been at the heart of many homes with different styles. These window treatments are a perfect choice for a traditional, transitional or modern touch or look. Modern-day shutters originated in England and were made from wooden boards. They were essentially constructed to properly ventilate and illuminate the rooms in which they were installed. Additionally, they protected the homes’ habitants from cold winds and hot weather. Now, shutters are often associated with a more Victorian style, or its evolved distant cousin —the rural look. However, shutters are much more versatile and convenient than we think. Our MorView Shutters and Ideal Shutters are sturdy, durable, and made locally. Such window treatments are easy to clean and offer incredible light control and energy efficiency. Let’s not forget that shutters resist cracking, warping, pests and chipping.

First, we must introduce our collections. Our MorView Shutters allow a timeless twist to an English classic. Such shutters add a slight touch of wood without overpowering your room. The white colour not only brightens up your space but creates a timeless feel. The removable louvres come in two different sizes, making this product versatile in terms of décor and light exposure. On the other hand, our Ideal Shutters allow a modernized twist. This recent addition to our collection allows for flexibility in terms of mechanism; specifically, the tilt rods may be hidden inside the doors or placed on the louvres. The latter comes in two different sizes and three different colors to suit our clientele’s needs.

Homes with traditional looks are often accessorized and filled with textures and different fabrics. By choosing shutters, clients opt for fluidity between rooms and allow their guests to focus on the home décor. Shutters’ sleek look, sharp lines and non-texturized feel also work well with a minimalist décor by adding value and change to the home. Such shutters would also work with more contemporary and industrial decors; the exposed bricks, metal and wood in such homes will allow the shutters to shine and provide uniformity throughout a rawer looking home. In transitional stages, shutters’ versatility and look provides a blank slate for our clients and other designers; any upcoming décor can work with such clean units. Plus, if our clients want to catch the eye of their guests, shutters can be framed with light filtering curtains, blackout curtains or sheer veils. This addition will soften the shutters’ sharp edges, frame them, and add an elegant feel and movement.

Overall, shutters are a great investment and can always be amped up and worked with according to a client’s décor or a client’s needs. Such window treatments add value and a touch of luxury in one’s rooms.
