It’s no secret that creating the ultimate man space can be expensive, but you can pick interior design products which punch above their weight (and cost). Creating effortless style is about choosing which interior updates are most important for overall impact and we think we’ve nailed one that is often overlooked; window shutters. According to some modern architects glass and windows have a huge affect on how a property is perceived. Using minimal framed glass in windows and doors reduces clutter and emphasises clean lines according to award winning architect Piers Taylor. So why stop at the glass, when we need privacy shutters could be the answer.
Whether your man space has showcase glass or not your windows and doors can create an effect of clean lines and effortless style by adding interior window shutters. Shutters can take your space to the next level with virtually no effort. Clean lines and architectural style are what they are all about and you can have cheap UK shutters fitted by companies across the board if you live in the UK. Using a full service company means that you don’t have to get your hands dirty with DIY either, leaving you free to concentrate on the important stuff in your life and home.
So how do shutters create this architectural style?
Window shutters make clean lines by being completely different to shades and curtains. For starters they are more solid, often made from real wood or hard plastics. There’s no soft furnishing effect with wooden slats and they create lines to the eyes around window frames. Shutters are versatile in that you can let light in by either tilting the slates or opening the frames up completely depending on which style you choose to have installed. Either way, they don’t create a softer finish like the aforementioned softer window coverings.
How about colours and styles?
Choosing the right colour for your new shutters plays a part in how your man space will be perceived. You can be boring and go for white or off white. This seems to be the most popular as it is neutral and will go with whatever you have in a room. Try something different though and the visual rewards will be immediate. Choose colours which are bold and striking. Greys, blacks and even bright colours will cerate a knockout effect, wowing your visitors with your bold choice. If your decor is made of modern materials like concrete and glass, you’re lucky and can use your windows to emphasise your style choices around your space.
