Decorating Tip: Half Height Plantation Shutters

I love the overall look of Plantation Shutters but find that they can sometimes obstruct a beautiful view and natural light.  One of my favourite tricks is to use half height shutters, particularly in rooms where full light block-out is not a priority.  The half height shutter still provides privacy but leaves the top section of the window free of window covering, allowing light to pour in at all times of the day.  It is a great solution for bathrooms, window seats, dining rooms and living areas and always makes a room feel spacious and more connected to the outdoors.

 A half height plantation shutter is ideal above a window seat where you still want to allow plenty of natural light into the room.

 Half height plantation shutters allow the best of both worlds in terms of giving a classic look, while still allowing precious natural light to flood in.
