When you think of shutters it conjures up visions of bright white shutters in airy rooms that make you think of summer and you’d be right…the most popular option is indeed whites and creams for shutters. But step back a bit and think of autumn hues and cosy winter nights and think about how the lovely stained wood options can change how you think about a room.
It’s not all dark!
Our wood stains come in colours from the very lightest ashes and beech colours to dark mahogany with some lovely vibrant Auburns, Cherry and Red Oak. All look great in different settings from a period setting through to a minimal city flat. They add style and a splash of colour to any setting and they have the lovely look and feel that only comes with real wood.
They are suitable for most rooms although not bathrooms and high humidity areas and they can be fitted in shapes and as tracked, café style and tier-on-tier styles. With options to add contrasting accessories such as locks’ bolts and doorknobs it means that you can make your shutters as individual as your décor too.
When planning your shutters think about how they can become a feature rather than blending into the room. A striking colour with the sun gently sloping through slats can become very much a ‘wow’ factor when you come into a room. Because different woods blend with so many decorative styles you have lots of different ways to make the most of how you use it.
A minimal flat with an open layout and a large mahogany tracked shutter over a large window looks fabulous with similarly minimal furniture styles but still gives a natural feel. A period property with a beautiful arched window in a mellow oak colour and natural wood furniture is both stylish and in keeping with the overall feel of the property.
Creating a stylish feel for this autumn and evoking the colours of the season making a warm cosy space or a more modern minimal feeling are easy to achieve with the stains in our Virginia range which is a lovely durable hardwood which will give pleasure for years to come.
Now we’re just loving the thought of those cosy autumn evenings with in front of the crackling flames of a wood fire…
