If privacy is important to your household, full height shutters or solid shutters may work well for you and your home. The simple, uninterrupted lines of these two styles will balance out the detailed six-over-six sash panes. Alternatively, if you want the six-over-six pane design to stand out, you could opt for café style shutters. In this instance, shutters are installed on the lower sash only to provide privacy, leaving the top sash exposed to flood the property with plenty of natural light.
However, while rectangular shaped windows work the best with the traditional Georgian style, there are exceptions. Sometimes Georgian properties boast curved windows or curved window arches, making it difficult to get window dressings to suit. While all made-to-measure shutter styles can be crafted for any size or shaped window, we think café style is a great look on arched windows. The lower, square element is covered while the upper, curved element is left untouched for the light to stream through and flaunt the beautiful arched feature.
