RV With Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters For An RV

Plantation Shutters Change The Look 

A lot of people these days are simply downsizing from a massive home to smaller living quarters. In fact, some have sold their homes and have chosen to survive by living in an RV. If you’re part of the minimalist movement and you’ve decided to live in your RV, that doesn’t mean that the RV has to be boring, right? Of course, you don’t have to be living in your RV to take advantage of sprucing it up. Plantation shutters on the windows sure would change the look. 

Whether you’re a living in your RV full time or only use it on camping trips, you might as well enjoy the space. With the exotic elegance of real wood, plantations shutters have a way of making the space they inhabit feel more upscale. 

As you can see in the image provided above, Kirtz® Shutters was able to provide the owner of that particular RV with a perfect match between their plantations shutters and the built in wooden trim, cabinets, and drawers. The beautiful red oak wood stands out next to the white walls and lighter colored decorations. Additionally, the RV feels more like a home with the added touch of wooden shutters.

Larksfield Place Dining Room - Plantation Shutters

Planation Shutters Help Larksfield Place Residents Enjoy Leisurely Dining

Larksfield Place Dining Room Windows Covered In Planation Shutters

The original goal for founders of Larksfield Place in Wichita, Kansas was to create an assisted living community with great value and security for their residents. This lovely community offers a full continuum of care and also provides a lifestyle that is sensible and affordable for people 55 years of age and older. One of the most unique amenities on site includes a restaurant style dining room, because enjoying a good meal is one of life’s great social experiences. Kirtz® Shutters was pleased to be able to add a touch of elegance to that space by creating custom plantation shutters for the windows. 

The dining options at this assisted living center can vary from simple good, old fashioned burgers to more upscale meals such as rosemary lamb or lemon thyme game hens. Of course, the food options aren’t the only thing that can help change the temperament of the room and sometimes residents will want to enjoy the feeling of being in a high-end restaurant while spending their leisurely night with good friends!

Luckily, depending upon the mood, the louvers of each of the planation shutters can easily be maneuvered up or down to allow as little or as much light into the dining room as desired. This can help provide diners with either an upbeat feeling and a sunny outlook into the courtyard or create a formal ambience for those elegant nights.

Kirtz® Shutters was happy to help such a lovely establishment become even more lovely with plantation shutters. We simply adore that our craftsmen are able to easily customize plantation shutters to fit any style of living space.

Do you have a custom plantation shutters project in mind for your residence, office, or another living space? No matter what your project is, we’d love to help make your vision a reality. To get started with a quote, give Kirtz® Shutters a call at 1-800-416-6455.

Mahogany Plantation Shutters

Wall Colors To Complement Mahogany Shutters

Aesthetically Pleasing Tones & Mahogany Shutters

Being a home builder can be so rewarding, yet it takes a lot of decision making to finish building an outstanding home. There are a lot of choices you have to make to please your customers and if you’ve chosen mahogany shutters, you’re next home building project will be complete with this high-end treat. The African quarter sawn mahogany used by Kirtz® to create our mahogany plantation shutters ensures the highest quality finish. The challenging part for some home builders can be decorating the rest of the house with the finesse necessary to highlight the custom work.

Since the natural color of mahogany changes with age from pinkish to more of a copper or reddish-brown it may be difficult to decide which complementary wall color to choose. In most cases, mahogany plantation shutters are best matched with other accents around the room such as a color in a tile backsplash in the kitchen or the room’s base trim, crown molding, or interior doors.

What any wood lover knows is that the true beauty of the wood definitely deserves to have a background that reflects its character. So how do you choose what you think your customers will love? The truth is that color preferences add a personal touch and while you’ll want to look for colors that will enhance the finish of the wood, this can be done in many different ways.

For example, a contrasting light, creamy beige color will draw the eye more to the decorative accents and, of course, to the mahogany plantation shutters. Additionally, light green, earthy tones will provide a maximum contrast. Gray is a very adaptable color with varying shades from the spectrum of cool to warm, all of which can be very relatable to mahogany.

So, no matter what your end goal is, whether you want to provide a bold statement or a subtle one, with the right color choice the end result is bound to be stunning and your customer will swoon over your choice of Kirtz® mahogany plantation shutters.
