How Window Coverings Help With Lighting and Aesthetics

When you’re considering what blinds, shutters, or shades to put into your home, there are a lot of factors to consider. One of the most predominant factors you should be thinking about is how those window coverings affect the lighting and aesthetics of your home. You’re going to want something that complements your interior design, but that also gives you as much light and light control as you need.

Matching Your Aesthetic

We see lots of different types of homes at Shutters of the Strand. From actual plantation style homes to beach homes and new builds, we’ve seen a little bit of everything thanks to our customers. Whether your home is light and beachy or features older, more rustic styles, we have something that can help bring it together even more.

Window Coverings For Light Interior Designs

If you’re living near the coast or embrace a more minimalistic design in your home, then there’s a good chance that your home is bright and breezy or bright and refined. We have shutters, shades, and blinds for both that can enhance that feeling or give your house some much needed juxtaposition.

If you want to continue to bring more light into your home or match the light colors that already exist, then there are a few good options. Woven and roman shades are very popular in beach homes, as well as other shades with light fabrics. Many people choose plantation shutters as well, for their easy access to light, but also their ability to grant complete privacy or protection from coastal storms. Many people go with white or light wood colors in order to match the feeling of their home or the hardwoods in their kitchen.

On the flip side, your home may be bright enough as it is, and some of the best interior designs are those with some contrast, and window coverings are a great way to provide that. We have a wide range of wood colors for our plantation shutters and woven wood shades, and can offer an even wider range of colors for blinds and shutters made out of other materials.

The Importance of Good Lighting and Natural Light

As you consider the color and type of window covering you want for your design, it’s important to remember the impact it will have on your day-to-day life in terms of how well you can see and possibly even how you feel. Having the right lighting, and having it be natural is important for a number of reasons, such as ambiance, picture taking, and your general mood.

When you pick out your window covering, part of what you’re deciding is how light you want your home to be, without enough lighting, certain rooms can be uninviting and even a little depressing. Choosing the window coverings can be critical to get the most out of your home. Choosing more transparent shades for areas that aren’t used much — like a sitting room or a dining room — can invite people in and help keep you aware of piling dust. Conversely, you may want the most possible control for rooms that you use a lot and may want to keep light out of altogether from time to time, like a bedroom or living room. Plantation shutters make a great choice for movie lovers or those who like to sleep in, and there are a wide variety of shades that can provide ample light at all times of day.
