Unique Ways To Incorporate Plantation Shutters Into Your Interior Design

When you are trying to revamp your interior design, there are many different paths you can take. However, if you have or find some beautiful plantation shutters that you simply cannot resist using, you may wonder how they can be incorporated into your new interior design project. While these shutters are traditionally used to cover windows, there are numerous other ways that they can be utilized in interior design. So, get to know some of the more unique ways that you can use those plantation shutters in your design project. 

Replace Your Pantry Or Closet Door

If you want to replace those plain doors on your pantry or closet with something more interesting looking and versatile, you can put your plantation shutters to use as those replacements. Folding plantation shutters would be ideal for this purpose, as they have multiple panels that are hinged to fold together as they are opened.

These folding shutters can give you numerous options for how you want your pantry and closets to appear. Flattened out (fully closed), the shutters look like a regular door. But partially or completely open they have a much more three-dimensional and interesting effect. 

As an added bonus, you can use the plantation shutters for additional storage space and convenience. You can hang pot holders, measuring spoons, or other cookware from the outside of your pantry. If used as a hallway closet door, you can hang hats, scarves, and umbrellas on the door to grab on your way out of the house. 

Create A Convenient Room Divider

If you have children who share a bedroom or have a large common space in your home that would benefit from being divided up into separate spaces, you can use your plantation shutters to accomplish that goal. These shutters can be made into decorative room dividers quite simply.

All you need to do is paint the shutters to your desired taste, and fold them into position so that they stand on their own stably. Line up as many shutters as possible to block off the desired area of the room and you are all set. This is ideal for creating an office nook in a large living room or to stop squabbling between siblings who share a bedroom and each need their own alone space. 

With these ideas in mind, you can easily incorporate plantation shutters into your interior design. Get creative and have fun with it. You will have a revamped interior space before you know it. Contact a company like Blinds And Designs Of Florida to learn more.
