Shutters can have a Dramatic Effect on your Interior

Shutters bring something to a room that other window treatments can’t. Sleek and solid, they can turn any window into an architectural feature. With some careful planning, a white wooden shutter can transform even the plainest room into an elegant, resolved grown-up space.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Shutters are the perfect solution for a bath or shower room. The neat profile can sit into a window frame leaving more space in these often-small rooms. Luxaflex Faux Wood shutters are made from moisture resistant material so cantolerate the damp environment and will stay looking fresh and new for longer. The same goes for kitchens which often gets steamed up.

If you work from home as many of us do these days using wooden shutters as dividers to shut off your working space can help achieve calm in a studious office space and hide any clutter from un expected guests.

Made to measure shutters can be used for awkward shaped windows or make plain boring windows more exciting.

Luxaflex Shutters are sold by the meter starting from £268 per square metre for Faux Wood (fitting is not included).
