Sculpting Light with Blinds and Shutters

Last updated 7 years ago

Blinds and shutters give you the power to control the light in a room so you only get the amount and type of light that you want.  Take a look at these tips to help you use your shutters and blinds to sculpt the right light in each room of your home:

Mellowed Light: Sometimes you want a small amount of light to filter into a room. Blinds and shutters give you the power to get a softer natural light. Since shutters are semi-opaque, meaning they block out most light but still let in a little along the gaps and edges, they mellow the light that is coming into the room. A plantation shutter is the perfect window treatment for your nursery, for example, because the filtered amount of light in the room won’t keep the baby awake but will still allow you to see where you are going when checking on your newborn.

Bright Natural Light: Certain rooms in the house seem to come alive with natural light, which is another reason shutters work well in any room. Imagine having a family meal in the dining room while bathing in the last of the afternoon sun or painting in a sunroom that is conveniently filled with bright natural light. Use blinds and shutters to enhance the natural light in rooms that should be filled with brightness.

Light Control: Shutters and blinds can also provide the right amount of darkness for rooms that work better without natural light. Combine window shades with blinds and shutters for an entertainment room to eliminate any glare on the television while you are trying to watch a movie or your favorite show.
