A new year brings new trends in interior design and décor. If you’re itching to update your home, investing in shutters will allow you to cross at least three big design trends for 2020 off your list. Ready to learn how shutters can take your home from ‘so-last-season’ to ‘trend-setter’? Let’s go!
- Create private spaces with privacy shutters
The concept of ‘open-plan living’ has dominated interior design. For decades, people lived with no distinction between kitchen, dining and living spaces – or even bedrooms and bathrooms.
While we’re not ready to completely give up on open-plan living just yet, there’s an emerging desire to create little pockets of privacy within our homes. How to achieve this without building walls? The answer lies in privacy and by-pass shutters.
Perfect for dividing rooms without creating a permanent barrier, with privacy shutters you can transform a space from open to intimate in a flash. Natural materials are the preference for interior spaces, while decorative aluminium shutters can be used to screen off outdoor areas.
- Introduce natural materials with solid wood shutters
Incorporating natural materials is not so much a new trend as a continuation of one. Spending time in nature seems to revive us, and that’s probably why we bring natural elements into our homes.
Wooden shutters are a clever way to adopt this trend, without going the obvious ‘wooden furniture’ route. Today, most wooden shutters are made from solid Obeche Wood or Basswood – hardwoods know for being strong and durable. The wood is sourced from sustainable forests and treated with UV and fade resistant finishes.
Wooden shutters are both beautiful and functional. The wood radiates a natural warmth, and the louvres allow you to control the flow of light and air. They add value to any home and will give you many years of service and joy.
- Secure your home with stylish security shutters
For South African homeowners, security will always be a concern. Although burglar bars are considered a necessity and not a trend, more people are searching for a stylish way to protect their homes and families.
Security Shutters tick all the boxes, particularly those manufactured by House of Supreme. Made from high-grade aluminium, the slimline design combines strength and style to create a window treatment that’s more attractive yet just as effective as traditional burglar bars.
