New Shutters

The shutters were installed today - Finally!! Here's some pictures:


Obviously, this is the kitchen... I am so happy I can close these and the houses behind us can no longer see in! These open in the middle and fold out like an accordion - which makes it easy with the cabinets on the right and the tall faucet.


Here's the living room... it looks completely different than it did a month ago! What's really fantastic about these is they completely block light when you want them to (I took the picture with one open and one shut to show the difference). These shutters are going to help keep the house cooler in the heat of summer. These also open in the middle so you can open and/or clean the windows.

Next on the home improvement list: paint the rest of the living room and replace the blinds on the french doors in the dining room. Hopefully I can get this started in the next couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to getting this area of the house completed once and for all.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Those look outstanding! Very very cool. I've never been a shutter person but this may get me to rethink that seeing as I don't really open the blinds much and like shutting out the light.

OMG those are my favorite shutters in the entire world! I LOVE plantation shutters and have wanted them for so long. But Charming said he didn't want to spare the expense if we would be moving from our current home soon like we planned. They look amazing! I will have to pick your brain once we are ready in our new house to install those about where you got them and if you put them in yourself or had them installed. Your living room is gorgeous!

In my opinion, you choose the best style, finish, and configuration for your house style and window sizes. Nice work!

Oooh I like the shutters. They look so much nicer than blinds. Plus they have an old time-y feel to them that's pretty cool.
