Shutters with curtainsLooking for great ideas that use both shutters and curtains for window coverings? Both shutters and curtains have their own, unique benefits and when you put them together you can create a beautiful, elegant look that complements your décor.

Reasons for Using Shutters with Curtains

There are a couple different reasons for covering windows with both shutters and curtains. Using both options gives you lots of versatility. For example, you could open the curtains but keep the shutters closed for privacy. Another reason for installing both shutters and curtains is the double benefit they provide. Curtains may match your décor, but they don’t keep out the light. And everything that shutters do, like keep heating and cooling costs down and blocking the light and noise, curtains help by providing an extra layer.

Shutters and Curtains – Creating the Perfect Look

Danmer can help you add custom-made shutters and curtains in your home to perfectly match the look of any room. Consider the many options.

Long flowing curtains look great over windows that have shutters. Choose similar colors for a uniform look, or pick contrasting colors to create a bold, modern look. Often shutters are painted white or they are made with stained wood. Either option looks great with a beautiful blue, orange, or yellow curtain.

Café shutters also go well with curtains. If you want some privacy, but still want to enjoy the view from the window, install shutters on the lower half of the window. The curtains will provide the extra covering for those times when you aren’t enjoying the view.

The combination of curtains and shutters works really well in bedrooms where many people want it to be as dark as possible. Black out window coverings aren’t usually as stylish, but combining shutters, which really block out the light, along with thicker curtains provides an even darker room while still maintaining the look you want.

Danmer can help you create a truly unique look that you will enjoy for years to come.
