American Shutters: Life’s A Beach

With shutters installed on almost every window and door, big and small, this Yzerfontein home embraces its seaside location in every way.


Whether it’s lazing in the lounge looking out at the untamed west coast beach, or sharing a meal with family or friends in the generous dining room that invites in the salty-air sea breeze, the home keeps time with the slow heartbeat of this quaint west coast town.

The interior is an eclectic blend of beach house style. Here you’ll find natural materials and a colour palette of neutrals and blues. Unique quirky touches add to the look, such as the wallpapered walls in the bathroom and stairwell. The design choice to have central tilt rods on the Decowood™ Shutters works beautifully here. It pairs well with the other timeless finishes in the home.  Deep farmhouse sinks, brass finishes, open shelves, subway tiles and exposed beams add subsequent appeal.

The result, a home that is warm, inviting, intuitive and simply gorgeous!

AMERICAN shutters was at the top of the list for the renovation! The finish the shutters would give the house was the main reason – super chic and clean lines but also low maintenance. The contrast of the white shutters with the patterned wallpaper was exciting!


From the moment I met Liz in our showroom eight months ago, her vision for the renovation of her dream home in Yzerfontein was clear. With every detail of her home carefully considered, she chose our eco-friendly Decowood™ Shutter range with central tilt rod from the outset, and together we opted for the pure white finish in keeping with the beach location of her home. When it came to the shutters frame, I suggested the simplest design to accentuate the house’s beautiful architrave details. Eight months later, and Liz’s incredible design talents are now perfectly complemented by the style and function of our Decowood Shutters.


AMERICAN shutters’ Decowood™ Shutters’ durable patented polypropylene coating won’t stain, peel, crack or chip. Furthermore, thanks to its UV inhibitors, the shutters won’t fade or yellow in the sun. This makes them ideal for installation in coastal homes.
