The bathrooms were done first, for privacy reasons. We used the "polywood" type in here so we won't have to worry about the moisture wrecking them.
I just love the way they look over the tub...Although, they would look much better if I had a free-standing tub instead of this monster jacuzzi. Unfortunately, that is a battle I will not win in this house...
We also have plantation shutters in our downstairs guest bathroom...
I love the way the shutters filter the light on this bright side of the house.
When I remodeled my home office, we also added them in there.
Ever since we completed our kitchen renovation, I have wanted to tackle the family room - starting with the windows. The wood blinds have been in there for years and they really don't do much for the room. Basically, they block the glare when you are watching TV...but they don't even do that very well! They are falling apart and just look messy all the time.
For the past year, I have been checking prices and waiting for plantation shutters to go on sale somewhere. Finally, the company I used for my bathrooms, Sunburst Shutters announced a sale! (No, I am not being compensated to mention them. I have just used them in the past and was very happy with the company.) The sales rep came out yesterday to measure and I ordered the shutters for the six windows in the family room. They should take 4-5 weeks so I will give you an update once they arrive. I am so excited to be moving along with this space!
Do you have any plantation shutters in your home?
