Ordering blinds and shutters for our home was one of the last things we did before moving in. I had only a short time to decide what we were going to do with our windows in terms of blinds/shutters and probably made some mistakes. I love the look of bamboo shades and wonder (secretly, so the hubby doesn’t freak out) if we should’ve gotten those instead. They just warm up a space so well. Anyhow . . . We opted for blinds on all the windows downstairs, leaving the two rear glass doors uncovered. Upstairs, we also have blinds in all the bedrooms, except for our master bedroom and bath, where we decided on shutters. If I recall, we had to go with shutters here because the way the window handles are, they would have interfered with the blinds. Those details are a little foggy now. But, apparently, shutters take 8 weeks to manufacture. So, for the last 2 1/2 months, our bedroom windows have looked like this: . . . and the bathroom window The shutters are scheduled to be installed Thursday morning. I’m so excited but I actually don’t even remember anymore what they are supposed to look like. I’ll be sure to share the results with you! Are you a blinds, shutter, or bamboo shades kind of gal? We are on blinds overload downstairs but it’s kinda too late to change it now since we just got them. I’m hoping that adding drapes will help.
