Our range of modern shutters are designed to suit any home and any décor, from contemporary to period. As elegant as they are practical, use this guide to see how our shutters could complement your home.
Can I use them indoors?
Of course you can! Modern shutters make a great addition to any room, but it is important that you ask yourself where they will be going. Solid timber styles are perfect for bedrooms and living areas, though you may want to choose a fauxwood style for your kitchen and bathrooms. It looks almost exactly the same as its timber counterpart, but it is specifically designed for the wet rooms in your home. Fauxwood PVC models won’t soak up the moisture in the air which would damage regular timber shutters. By using a mixture of the two options, you’ll be able to have a continuous style throughout your home, without having to replace them every few years.
Can I use them outdoors?
Australians are known for their love of the great outdoors. Whether you’re eating breakfast on your balcony, or inviting the whole family over for dinner, with modern shutters you’ll be able to get even more use out of your al fresco entertaining areas. Compliment your interior styles and create your very own outdoor room with our aluminium models. Your family will love taking advantage of your open-air space, free from nosy neighbours. We also have fixed louvre options, which are perfect for screening certain areas of your home, such as the bathroom windows or ugly air-conditioning units. No matter what style you choose, you can rest assured that your façade will look more beautiful than ever – and stand up to the harshest weather conditions.
Will they give me much coverage?
If you’re choosing custom shutters, you’ll be able to decide exactly how much – or how little – coverage you’d like. Though it isn’t exactly a modern concept, the café style has become increasingly popular at the moment. These come half way up your window, stopping at eye height whilst covering the body, so you can get privacy without sacrificing natural light. No matter what you ultimately decide, almost all of our modern shutters are adjustable, so you’ll be able to control how much sunshine comes into your room – and how much of your home can be seen from the street.
