How to Decide On Custom Shutters For Your Home

When it comes to putting finishing touches on your home to make it as impressive and comfortable as possible, something that people tend to forget is the impact that custom shutters can have on a property.

Just as much as the right wall colour, fencing or gate choices, shutters can provide that touch of quality both from the inside and the outside that will elevate your home from being ‘fine’ to ‘great’!

Of course, that is only if you know which ones to select!

From the dedicated folks here at IQ Shutters, to help you out here are some important pointers for how to decide on which custom shutters to get for your home.

  • Think about how much time you actually spend in the room you are getting shutters for. If it is one of your main living rooms, then it is worth spending the extra cash for something luxurious. Also, consider how much natural light you need to enter into the room in order to make it liveable.

 

  • What sort of vibe do you want to put across with the colour that you choose? For example, white shutters are very clean and fresh, whereas darker colours like brown and even black, are much more dramatic and richer. The colour you choose will have a big impact on the atmosphere created within the room.

 

  • If you have oddly or complexly shaped windows, then you probably don’t want to choose a shutter that is over complicated itself. This will only cause clutter in your room. The more simple you go with your choices, the more minimalist and ‘clean’ things will look overall.

 

  • If you have small children running around the house, then you need to consider things like how shutters open and close. It’s not a nice experience for a child to get their fingers trapped in shutters or their working parts like hinges.
