Plantation shutters are the ideal window dressing for all ages and styles of properties. But with countless styles available, it can be difficult to settle on what style of shutters will best complement your home. One thing to keep in mind is the era and architectural style of your home.
Here’s what shutter styles look best with architectural property styles:
Most Georgian houses were designed with sash windows, with larger windows downstairs and smaller windows upstairs. Traditionally, Georgian homes would be dressed with solid shutters, however, louvred shutters offer a more contemporary look.
Bay windows were a popular feature in Victorian properties. Full length or tier-on-tier shutters are the ideal solution for bay windows as they follow the line of the window and don’t clutter the room. Whether maintaining the traditional look or modernising this style of property, plantation shutters add the finishing touch to Victorian properties.
Art Deco properties
An Art Deco property often features a stained glass or ornate design window. Solid shutters offer the perfect window solution as they can be opened to reveal the full feature window.
New build properties
At Totally Shutters, we have seen a huge rise in popularity of shutters in new build and contemporary homes. Made-to-measure shutters compliment new build properties, adding a touch of style and sophistication to the windows. Some modern properties suit larger louvres and panels, offering a more simplistic and modern design.
Plantation shutters compliment both modern and traditional properties. For more information on plantation shutters, or to book your free no obligation in-house survey, contact Totally Shutters on 0203 960 6963. All shutters come with a 5-year guarantee.
