Cozy Minimalist Cabin Gets Glowy Light with Shutters

Rachael Sneed | 04 Feb 2016 | Home Tours

Sarah Kate and her family of 5 recently moved into a charming cabin in the woods. Shutters for the living and bedroom fit with her minimalist style, brightened up the space, and were a safer cordless choice for her kids.

The Makeover

Sarah Kate chose Simplicity Wood Shutters to cover the windows of her living and bedroom. Rather than bulky curtains, wood shutters give full light control and offer clean lines to fit with Sarah Kate's minimalist style. Not only do the shutters complete Sarah's room from the inside, but they offer great curb appeal too.

Sarah said:

When my dad and my husband installed's shutters I nearly cried. They are beautiful, and not just from the inside but also looking in from the outside. When I think about the most beautiful parts of our home (to me anyway), these shutters most definitely come to mind.

These shutters have 2 louver sizes and allow up to 6 panels that can open or close in any direction. They're also completely cordless, which keeps her kids safer.

Sarah said:

My favorite way to style them is one open here, one open there, and the middle section propped open. They allow all the light my heart could desire and at night they button up to allow our family top-notch privacy.

Sarah chose Simplicity Wood Shutters in the color Off-White.
