40 Stylish And Cool Modern Shutter Ideas
Do you enjoy lots of sunshine inside your home? If not always, you may want some stylish window treatments that will highlight the ambience of the space. I’d advise you to go out of the box and choose modern window shutters, not just curtains or drapes.
Chic and bold, shutters give you everything you’d wish for in a window treatment idea. They’re practical as they provide light, privacy and reduce noise without compromising on security: you can add locks for extra confidence. Shutters are about low-maintenance, requiring nothing more than a wipe-down to keep them looking their best. More adaptable than curtains and more versatile than blinds, shutters come in a whole host of modern materials and super-chic colors that make a feature of your windows. From super bright MDF versions with special coatings (great for high moisture areas such as kitchens and bathrooms) to hardwood designs, there are plenty of great options to choose from.

Types Of Window Shutters
Taking their name from the sprawling 19th-century mansions in America’s deep south, the most versatile are plantation-style shutters. These feature louvres that open and close to minimize heat from the sun. They provide ventilation and privacy when needed and come in an impressive array of colors and materials. You can now choose the width of your louvres too. Larger louvres allow in more light when the shutter is open, so it’s worth bearing this in mind when you’re making your decision.
Solid shutters were originally installed in pre-Edwardian houses and were only used a couple of times a year when the owners decamped for the season. They weren’t designed to be opened and shut daily like our present designs, which is why so few remain today. As well as traditional wood, they now come in a number of materials, so try non-reflective acrylic, glass or even a fabric of your choice.
