Wood shutters have stood the test of time since they’ve been around for centuries. Primarily used to protect windows and homes, provide privacy and block out sunlight, window shutters have come a long way. When you’re considering getting wood shutters for your Toronto home, there are a few things you should consider.
When shutters were first used centuries ago, wood shutters were typically used on the exterior of a building. Today, wood shutters can be used in both the exterior and interior of a home! Depending on your preference, we at the Original California Shutters can design, measure, and manufacture custom wood shutters for your interior or exterior!
Consistency is important. If you’re looking to get wood shutters for the exterior of your home, consider choosing a style and colour that is consistent with the rest of the exterior. For example, if your home uses red brick, your front wooden door is white, and your porch railings are also white, consider choosing white wood shutters to maintain that consistent aesthetic throughout your exterior!
Interior shutters, on the other hand, need to be consistent with the room that it resides in. Wood shutters really tie a room together. They control the natural light entering a room, so whether you have the shutters drawn, or open, can make a big difference to the look of the room. When choosing interior wood shutters for your Toronto home, consider how it can remain consistent with the rest of the room, while also factoring in how a room will look with the shutters drawn or open!
Regardless of what wood shutters you choose for your Toronto home, we at the Original California Shutters design, measure, manufacture, and install custom window shutters for your home. Whether it’s for the interior or the exterior of your home, you can be sure that we’ll deliver beautiful shutters that tie your entire home together.
