No More Dark Rooms! Premium WIndow Shutters Brighten Up the Kitchen

Rachael Sneed | 25 Jan 2016 | Home Tours

Curtains hung in Mique's kitchen made the space dark and didn't fit with her white kitchen remodel. Replacing the former homeowner's blinds with Premium Wood Shutters brightened the space and added the cherry on top to this makeover.

The Makeover

Premium Wood Shutters replaced broken blinds and dark curtains in Mique's kitchen, dining room and family room. These shutters dramatically brightened the room and gave her control over how much light came in the room.

Mique said:

After putting in the wood shutters, there is so much light and brightness in the space.  If it’s hot I can shut them down or if I want to open it all up, it’s so easy to do.

These shutters are custom made to slide side to side, allowing Mique to clean behind them without hitting the kitchen faucet. The bright white color she chose not only bring more light into the kitchen, but bounces light through the entire home.

Mique said:

Can you tell that I am loving all of the brightness these shutters bring into our home? It makes such a drastic difference.

The shutters themselves are also easy to clean. For more information about how to properly clean shutters and more cleaning tips, be sure to check out Mique's post, How to Clean Shutters + Fall Cleaning List.
