If you are someone who loves pattern or regularly changes the decor of your home curtains are a great option as they can be easily changed and can be made from almost any fabric.
However, curtains usually fail to achieve their function, particularly if they’re hung in a difficult room that experiences a lot of sun.
In order to achieve both functionality and originality (while still looking great) why not opt for a mix of window coverings?
Plantation shutters with curtains make a room look tailored and super chic and allow you to easily control the amount of light that filters into your room.
Why will plantation shutters with curtains look great in my home?
It’s increasingly popular, especially in coastal areas, to use both plantation shutters with curtains. This is mainly because the shutters are functional, protecting the furniture from over exposure to light and salt, while the curtains add that cosy, flowy touch to the decor.
The beauty of plantation shutters is that they are easy to install, control and keep clean. They also offer complete privacy while still letting in light.
Mixing plantation shutters with curtains allows you to further control this privacy and light allowance.
In terms of aesthetics the contrast of the horizontal shutter with the vertical curtain will make the window a statement feature in your home, especially if you choose a really bold curtain fabric.
The contrast is also in effect with the boldness of the horizontal lines juxtaposed with the soft finish of a curtain.
If you are worried about horizontal plantation shutters making your room appear shorter, adding curtains will provide visual height. (If you hang the rod as close to the cornice or ceiling as possible, well above the shutters, you will give the illusion of height in the room).
