Kitchens are often the center of the house. This kitchen has beautiful glass doors, but the challenge is to find a window covering that can fulfill many criteria. It should be easy to clean, not retain cooking odors, let in plenty of light, and also act as an excellent insulator against the heat and cold. A fine solution is found using hardwood shutters. These shutters are custom designed to suit the architecture and style of the room. An interesting design feature is the offset tilt rod that adjusts the angle of the louvers keeping the look very clean and streamlined. The size of the stiles are also custom-made to match the french doors. These are just some of the ideas our shutter designer can come up with to achieve an outcome that is both beautiful and practical.
