Do Shutters make your rooms look bigger?
When home owners look to decorate their rooms they often want to make the rooms look as spacious and big as possible. Shutters do in fact help towards this and can help you to achieve a more spacious looking living area. Shutters are fitted within the recess of a window so sit flush unlike more traditional fittings such as curtains. This in turn creates blank space around and either side of the window. Because of the fact that there is more wall and floor space showing, the room looks more spacious. Curtains made of heavy fabric can also appear to take up more room due to the size of wall area and floor they demand. The visual simplicity of a room can also be improved by matching the colour of the shutters to your wall colour. This helps create a seamless look around the walls and allows for a great setting for your furniture without looking cluttered. Another great way that shutters create a more spacious looking room is through light reflection. Through using large louvres you certain styles of shutters you can allow maximum light into all areas of your room. Using lighter coloured shutters will also help flood greater levels of light into a room. Clever placements of mirrors can further enhance this effect.
