A Unique Twist on Plantation Shutters!
Plantation shutters have been around forever and have a very classic feel to them, however as with most classical design elements I like to put a little twist on it. After my last post about layering window coverings I really wanted to just highlight the unique usage of shutters. Plantation shutters are so versatile, the options are endless!
In this master bedroom I have used the shutters only on the top half of the windows. Also notice the shutters are top hung.
This is a great shutter application where they are used just on the transom windows and are top hung.
In this home I placed shutters above the windows and doors creating the illusion of transom windows and giving extra height to the room.
For this dining room I extended the shutters past the window all the way to the floor for a clean consistent feel.
In both of these lofts I have used shutters has a partial wall. They can be used for privacy or just a visual divide.
These shutters are above a bath tub and I only took them as high as needed for function, leaving the top half of the window open.
I thought a shutter was a great way to accentuate this accent window.
The simplicity of plantation shutters make them a great window covering for small square accent windows.
In this home I used shutters on several of my doors.
