If you installed plantation shutters for your window treatments, you know how easy to maintain, energy-efficient, and beautiful they are. But did you know the other uses for shutters -- plantation and otherwise -- that can help with other sections of your St. George home?
Creative homeowners will use shutters beyond just window treatments. If you love plantation shutters, here are a few novel ideas for how to get more use from interior shutters in different ways in your house.
Use Shutters To Cover Doors
Plantation shutters can also be a stylish alternative for otherwise plain interior doors. Replace doors in pantries, closets, or more with shutters. The shutters easily swing open and closed to keep your closet contents hidden away.
Other uses for shutters are having them set up as an accordion door in large rooms. You just straighten the panels and louvers during the times you need privacy, muffle noise, or block drafts.
Shutters Can Help With Passthroughs And Cutouts
A cutout or passthrough is a novel way to get some openness when you have traditional rooms. Functionally, the cutout lets dishes and food to to be passed to the next room without walking around to the door. And they can help create a sense of spaciousness by opening up the area just a bit.
Plantation shutters bring some enhancement to your passthrough or cutout. If it doesn’t have a countertop on the bottom lip, your shutters can frame the cutout as if it was a window. When cooking gets a bit too rambunctious, you can just close the shutters to muffle the offending sound. Closed treatments also signifies that the kitchen is closed!
Even More Shutter Uses
As you begin to perceive shutters as more than a window treatment, you should start thinking up other uses for shutters. For example, if you have a cutout for your flat-screen television, plantation shutters can effectively hide it from sight when the screen is off. This approach may also transfer over to other treatments, like barn door shutters.
You might even want to use shutters as doors on a cabinet or bar area.
If you love your shutters, ask your installer about other uses for shutters in your St. George home. They can help you explore ways to bring the advantages of plantation shutters to new areas of your home.
