Open plan or divided? This is the big conundrum for many a homeowner. Both have their advantages and drawbacks, which makes it often a very tough decision. But what if you didn’t have to decide? By using shutters as partitions, you can achieve the same privacy and seclusion you would have with solid walls, but can also easily create an open plan space whenever you need to.


Take the example of a family home with dogs or cats – you could be preparing a dinner party and want to keep the pets away from the food, whilst still keeping them in sight at all times. Tier on tier shutters would be a perfect solution here – the lower half can be kept closed to serve as a partition, while the top half remains open so you can keep an eye on them. When it’s time for the guests to arrive, you can open the shutters completely and take full advantage of the open plan layout to help your party go with a bang.

It is this kind of flexibility that is leading more and more people consider interior shutters to partition their home. As an alternative to a solid wall they are relatively inexpensive, and what’s more if you purchase made to measure shutters you can install them yourself. Using interior shutters as a partition will also be great to look at, whether in a contemporary or a period space. There are so many options for colours and wood grains, meaning there will always be an option to fit the decor of your home.

There’s no question that for genuine versatility, quality and aesthetics, using shutters as dividers is a superb way to partition a room. Call us on 888-753-8290  or email us to find out more and discuss your requirements.
