Why You Should Team Your Plantation Shutters With Curtains

We all know how stunning and timeless plantation shutters look in any home. Favoured among coastal areas, plantation shutters provide the maximum amount of light and air control for any room. There are many home owners who choose not to install plantation shutters due to the fact that they can’t give up their love for blinds and curtains.

But, why should you?

Plantation shutters and blinds and curtains can be teamed up to make the perfect window treatment. Not sure how? The experts at Modern have come up with some great reasons why the two go together perfectly.

  1. They Finish off The Room
    Plantation shutters look amazing on their own, but team them up with blinds and curtains to really help bring your room together and finish it off. This combination gives a tailored and cosy look to the room. You will find your living space becomes a lot more inviting, especially during the winter months.
  2. Play Around With Colours
    Using blinds and curtains allows you to add colour to your room without losing the benefits that shutters provide. Your curtains don’t need to be functioning, two panels of material either side of the window frame will give you the colour boost you have been missing.
  3. They Add Another Layer of Privacy
    Pair your shutters with a heavy drape to create another level of privacy and darkness. While plantation shutters do a great job of blocking out daylight, adding a drape over the top will give you another layer of darkness. This also helps make the room feel a lot cosier in cooler months.
  4. Add Height to Your Room
    Using a curtain rod to mount your curtains higher and wider than your window will give the illusion that your ceilings are higher than they actually are. This works because it makes your window look bigger and wider than it really is. Many experts agree that mounting the rod 6 inches higher than your window frame is the perfect height.
  5. Use Tiebacks
    If you have a room that is more formal or if you are wanting a more tailored look, use tiebacks. The use of tiebacks will pull the curtain material back for a tailored and sophisticated look. Tiebacks are also a great way to help keep any fabric from getting caught in your plantation shutters.

Don’t let your love of curtains, blinds and plantation shutters make you choose one over the other. Enjoy the best of both worlds and pair the two together for a look you will absolutely love. To enquire about Plantation Shutters contact Modern for a free quote!
