If you’re lucky enough to own a beachside or coastal home, you’ll know that choosing the right window dressings is essential. It might not surprise you to hear us say the most versatile and durable window treatment for coastal homes are made-to-measure shutters. Well, we are The Shutter Store, but we’re honestly not biased. Shutters offer heaps of functionality, and they’re also the ideal fixture to complement the coastal aesthetic. In this quick guide, we’ll talk about what makes beach house shutters so special, and how transforming your coastal abode needn’t be a wipeout.
The Ideal Window Treatment for Coastal Homes
When it comes to coastal living, longevity is key. You need a window dressing that’s durable and able to withstand the elements. That’s what makes beach house shutters such a popular choice. Their robust composition and resistance to moisture (see our waterproof shutters for more information) makes them ideal for withstanding the challenges of coastal living. From salty air to changing weather conditions, our shutters are the perfect window treatments for coastal homes.
Shutters: The Versatile Choice
One of our absolute favorite things about shutters is their versatility. It allows them to adapt to various interior design styles, from shabby chic to coastal beach house living. Whether your coastal home features a classic, contemporary, or tropical theme, we’ve got the shutters to match. The various design options on offer, from slat sizes to colors and finishes, guarantees a cohesive look to complement your unique style.
And then there are materials to consider. All our shutter ranges are super durable and resistant to some moisture. However, depending on your proximity to the water, you may want something a little more water-resistant. That’s where our plastic shutters come in. We have three waterproof faux wood shutters on offer: Aluminum Core, Wood Core, and Vinyl Faux Wood (the last two are made right here in the USA).
Go Classic with White Shutters
For a fresh and breezy coastal look, you can’t go wrong with a set of classic white shutters. A bright and clean window treatment with fresh lines, they’ll increase the natural light in your home while evoking a sense of tranquility and relaxation. Whether you want to freshen up your lounge, bedroom, or kitchen windows, our range of white shutters will beautifully frame your coastal views. Plus, with their movable slats you’ll be able to keep the sun’s rays at bay and enjoy the shade.
Embrace Rustic Charm with Wood Stain Shutters
Looking for something a little different? A set of wood-stained shutters are perfect for bringing some rustic charm to your coastal home. Or, if you’re going for a chic beach hut vibe, one of our limewash options will make for the perfect beach house shutters. Both finishes will add extra depth and character to your windows, all while creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere. So, whether you prefer rich mahogany or a natural pine, we’ll find the right finish for your coastal home.
Please note that wood stains and lime wash finishes are only available in our Natural Hardwood range.
