Open plan living is a popular option for many homes, creating a minimal and contemporary space where the whole family can be together. But although stylish, there may be times when you need privacy. Plantation shutters as room dividers help divide rooms and provide the privacy required.
So if you love your open plan area, but want the added option to divide it at the same time, plantation shutters may be the solution for you.
Using plantation shutters as room dividers
Using plantation shutters to segregate your open plan space is a much cheaper solution than constructing a new wall and offers greater flexibility. As with shutters, you can have your room completely open or create separate rooms for privacy, alone time, studying or storage space. And by opening the louvres of the shutters, you can have the option to have open plan and separate at the same time.
Made-to-measure plantation shutters can be created to divide a range of interior designs and not just open plan. Track systems allow for easy operation and can be used for covering patio doors, large windows and cupboard doors. Track systems can be put in place to help close up a room such as a kitchen or en-suite bathroom by partitioning off space when required. This allows the shutters to be folded out of the way when easy access throughout the open plan area is required.
Plantation shutters reduce air flow when closed, keeping spaces cool or warm, and limit the volume of noise spreading through the home, allowing for a much nicer living solution.
Plantation shutters are a simpler choice for dividing up your open plan space and can be matched to any existing window shutters in the home to provide a consistent look and feel throughout the property. Totally Shutters also offer a colour match service that provides the perfect match to any interior.
