While choosing shutters for your office windows, you should opt for a balance between practicality and professional appearance. Graceful styling of your office windows can enhance the overall vibe of the place. Before choosing window shutters from Shuttersmith, consider the following things carefully:
When it comes to material, wooden shutters are the best out there – sustainable, trendy, and easy to manage. But even in wood, there are so many options. You can choose oak, poplar, tweak, cherry or basswood. The choice depends on how you want your shutters to end up looking and what you can afford. The prices vary according to material and design.
Wood is an expensive option for shutters. If you are on a budget, you should consider Craftwood or MDF. These materials appear like wood and are painted. You can also go between wood and MDF and choose a hybrid composite that does not erode with extra temperature changes. Waterproof options like ABS are also available.
The size of the shutter should be properly measured before placing the order. The shutters are normally the size of the window you want to cover unless you want to give a bigger-looking appearance to the window. In that case, you can increase the dimensions of the shutters. Just make sure that you decide on the size beforehand.
The colour of the window shutter should blend well with the remaining office walls, ceiling, and furniture. You do not want to get shutters that stand out too much or not at all. For example, if the theme of your room is dark you should opt for a darker shade and vice versa. The shade should not have to be the same, it should be a little different from the rest of the furniture to stand out just enough.
Shutters come in different styles and you should select the ones that suit your needs the best. Let’s have a look!
Full-height is the classic style of window shutters that goes with almost every window and looks especially good on tall ones. They have a central dividing rail for providing support to the structure.
It is a versatile style allowing the top and bottom tiers to open independently of each other. It allows variable control of fresh air, light, and privacy.
If the window is oddly shaped then customised shutters will do the trick. Shaped shutters come in a wide range of outlines like triangles, potholes, sunbursts, trapezoids, ovals, hexagons, octagons — you name it! They are suitable for windows located in attics.
These shutters only cover the bottom half of the window. So, they should be used only on the windows where privacy and blocking the sunlight are not a concern. They can be used on the ground floors, especially in areas looking over a lake or a garden.
Buying shutters for your office windows is a decision that requires due diligence. Cover all your bases before you get these shutters!
