No. You do not need to pair curtains with shutters. Window shutters are an all-around excellent window dressing that provides flexibility, privacy and light control on their own. Plus, they look stylish.
Most people have shutters alone. Whereas some people like to layer curtains with shutters, especially in rooms that require a little more warmth and personality, such as lounges or bedrooms.
Shutters are a versatile and elegant window dressing. They provide excellent control over light and privacy whilst offering a range of benefits.
For example, the high-quality wooden or faux wood material is incredibly insulating. It will keep your home warm and will block out noise pollution. When closed, shutters are great at blocking out almost all of the light.
Better yet, you have a wide range to choose from. Perhaps you’d like to go traditional with Full Height Shutters. Or if you’d like more flexibility, maybe you’d prefer Tier on Tier Shutters. Perhaps you like the chic elegance of Café Style Shutters, which only cover the lower half of the window and look excellent in kitchens. Or maybe you have a period home and would prefer Solid Panel Shutters.
If you’d like shutters in your bedroom, Blackout Shutters are the way to go. And Waterproof faux wood shutters offer a beautiful option for your bathroom.
All shutters are available in a range of colours and can even be matched to a paint colour of your choice. They are tailormade to perfectly fit your window and there is a range of finishes available.
There are several reasons why people pair curtains with shutters.
For example, you may like the look of café style shutters for your living room. But this style of shutters doesn’t cover the top half of the window, meaning curtains may be needed to block out the light pollution in the evenings.
Perhaps you have a large, open room that requires plenty of soft furnishings to make it feel more homely. Or perhaps you’d like to hang curtains in a bold pattern or colour to bring together the colour scheme of your interior décor. Some people feel that curtains finish a room off.
It’s all about personal preference really!
