Room Look Bigger With Plantation Shutters

One of the keys to making a room look bigger is having a clutter free room; so that there isn’t a feeling of items encroaching on the room. Visual simplicity is important and shutters are a plain understated window covering which helps the trick the mind thinking that more space is available.

Not only doe the simple design of plantation shutters work in terms of the minds perception, but sitting in the window recess means that they sit flush with the window. This means unlike curtains or other window coverings, that there is clear space around the window. To add further to the notion of visual simplicity, having the same colour shutters as the rest of the decor in the room means that the room seems less cluttered and free flowing. For example having the room itself white or cream with white shutters gives you a classic seamless look.

The use of light levels and light reflection is another way in which to help your room look larger. Plantation shutters give you the optimum control over the levels of light that you let in. Having large louvres is one trick to allow you to get large levels of light into your room, particularly if you choose white shutters, which will reflect more light when light passes through them. Placing a mirror opposite your plantation shutters helps to further increase the levels of light that comes into the room.

Heavy curtain fabrics tend to take up wall space above below and around the window recess, meaning that the wall that they are on seems smaller and more cluttered. Louvre Shutters don’t have the same visual limitations and provide a much cleaner tidier window covering.
