Full Height White Window Shutters in Kid’s Bedroom
We recently installed some stylish full height shutters for a family home in Gosforth. The little boy’s bedroom had a fab Dinosaur theme, really capturing our imagination and made the whole room really eye-catching!
Situated at the northern end of Newcastle upon Tyne, Gosforth’s name is thought to have originated from “Goose Ford”, referring to an incident in AD55 involving local geese. Our customer Triona made an appointment with us at Shuttercraft Newcastle as she was looking for a practical and stylish solution for her windows.
Working closely with Triona during the initial free home consultation, we helped them settle on a simple yet effective design. Full height shutters provided a stylish and practical solution for a bedroom, 76mm louvres and painted Pure White finish helped provide the look the family was looking for.
Plantation shutters are a great option for a child’s bedroom as they are very much a kid friendly solution. With no cords or ties, there’s nothing for little ones to get caught in. This install also included a hidden tilt mechanism for controlling the louvres, making it nice and simple for the lad to operate them by himself.
Coupled with some patterned and themed curtains, the shutters were there to help provide an incredibly dark environment to help the little boy sleep. Using the two window coverings provided a bit more flexibility to help get the room just as desired.
Shutters provide privacy during the day as a more stylish alternative to nets. They let the light in, keeping it nice and bright, without letting people peer in who might be walking past.
Triona settled on the MDF Antigua range for the shutters, as it provided the style options to suit her tastes. Being slightly heavier than the Fiji and Sumatra hardwood ranges, Antigua is perfect for small and medium sized windows, and is a durable choice for places such as bedrooms.
Winter will soon be on its way, and as shutters help to retain heat, they will make the boy’s bedroom feel a bit warmer, and also help keep the family’s costs down with reduced heating bills. As plantation shutters add a layer to windows, they reduce the levels of heat loss when closed, and even insulate against exterior noise.
