Kitchens are one of the busiest rooms in the home, so it’s important the furnishings we choose for this area work hard for us. Shutters make a great choice for kitchen windows for so many reasons – they’re practical, hardwearing and provide a stunning look too.
Read on for our tips for choosing shutters for your kitchen, and be inspired by these beautiful homes.
There’s no doubt about it, kitchens are busy, and often messy, places. We use this space to cook, eat, work and play, so the items we choose for this room should be practical above all else. As well as providing all of the essential qualities of good window coverings - light control, privacy and energy efficiency - our Henley shutters are water-resistant. The robust slats won’t warp in steamy conditions and can be wiped clean of any spills or splashes, making them ideal for even the most chaotic kitchens.
Country-style kitchens have that enduring appeal that never goes out of fashion. Think shaker cabinets, copper pans, linen tablecloths, field-fresh blooms - and wooden shutters to complete the look. Go for narrow panels with a slim slat width, and accessorise with complementary door knobs and hinges to really get that classic country vibe. Your advisor will happily take you through all the options available.
Shutters for windows of all shapes and sizes
The great thing about our made-to-measure shutters is that they can be made to fit almost any shape or sized window. If your kitchen has unusually large windows, or a bow or bay, then we’re here to help. Our experts will bring samples to your home so you can choose the colour and finish that’s right for your space, measure up, and return to fit too. It couldn’t be easier when you choose Hillarys.
