Plantation Shutter Designs

Bedroom ShuttersAn important factor to consider with window shutter designs is the slat sizes, as this will depend on your requirements with regards to privacy and light control; the narrower the slats the more control, but if the enjoyment of a wonderful view is your priority, then wider slats are perfect. It is also possible to have a privacy rail at the midsection, which gives you the flexibility of having one part open and another closed.

Colour and stain options are another important consideration with window shutter designs. Decide whether you want a natural wood look, in which case S:CRAFT have a choice of styles which offer this. Perhaps you prefer white to give those clean modern lines that are so popular today. The other alternative is to go for colour, maybe to tone in with your current décor or if a custom colour is required, then this is also an option.

Take advice from the experts and have them fitted by a professional, this way your choice of window shutter designs will be tailor-made and perfect.
