Can I pair Plantation Shutters with curtains or drapes?
Decorating is always about blending and complimenting the current home’s style, some people like a cleaner look without curtains or drapes on the windows and others like a more layered look
Drapes or no drapes with plantation shutters?
Plantation shutters are a unique window treatment all their own, providing style, beauty, and function. You control the louvers allowing as much sunlight as you’d like into your home.
Therefore you don’t need drapes to control the light, but that doesn’t mean curtains or drapes won’t compliment the natural beauty of your new plantation shutters for your home in Denver or any community.
Plantation shutters without curtains or drapes is a more contemporary style
Plantation Shutters with curtains or drapes are a more traditional style
Many homeowners appreciate curtains for their various patterns, colors, and design versatility. If you’d like to incorporate curtains into your windows, you can absolutely pair them with plantation shutters.
They can make a dramatic room statement alongside traditional shutters.
Curtains or no curtains with plantation shutters?
When you choose to pair curtains with plantation shutters, there are some key features of curtains that you need to consider. These include the height or length of the curtains, as well as the type of fabric, and even maintenance considerations.
For plantation shutters, you only need to gently clean them using a soft, barely damp (not wet) cloth or lamb wool wand. For curtains, you may need to set aside time to regularly have them dry cleaned.
You should also consider the colors and patterns of the curtains, as well as how the curtains match the decor of the room.
The most common rooms homeowners install curtains in the living room or the bedroom, for additional light control, style or just to make the room more cozy.
It is usually suggested to mount your curtain rod either several inches above your windows or close to the ceiling to enhance the look of your windows, making them look longer and the ceilings look taller. Keep in mind you will also want to make sure that your curtain rod is long enough to allow you full and easy access to the plantation shutters to adjust them and to open them.
Valance or no valance with plantation shutters?
A valance is a specific window treatment sort of like a short or small drapery that sits or crowns the top of the window. They can be casual but mostly have a more formal appearance.
Consider it like a bit of whip cream on your hot chocolate or a cherry on your sundae, they are a finishing touch to your window design.
The appeal of a valance is they don’t block the view and aren’t heavy like drapes on the sides. A valance will interfere with the opening of your plantation shutter panel but is manageable most of the time.
