Owning a home is very exciting, but I moved into an older home that was a little run down. Normally I would not care because I had lived in some really bad places during college, but now this was my home and my wife was going to want to have a great looking home as well. This is when I decided that I would tackle the room that we would all want to have fixed up and that was the kitchen. This is how improved the look of my kitchen by using some interior shutters.More details here:
The kitchen had smaller windows on them, which I really did not like, so I had to change these immediately. So I decided to make the windows a little bit larger. This, in turn, made it quite a bit easier to let in more light, but also for us to see the kids playing on the playground in the backyard while we made dinner. When I did this it also let in a lot more light, but also created a huge space for the windows that I was not expecting to have.
This huge space, while letting in quite a bit of light was also very difficult to use because at times the light was so much it was blinding. This is when I decided that even painting the kitchen would not help because the light was that bright. This is when I decided to look at the interior shutters. When I started to use the interior shutters they added a unique design element for the home, but it also provided me with a way to dampen down the amount of light that was coming into the home at any given point in time.
I have to admit, improving my kitchen was a challenge, but I knew that it was something that I needed to do. Without doing this I was going to have a wife that was mad, but also a family that would go hungry because my wife would not cook in a kitchen that was not completely updated. This is when I decided to improve the look of the kitchen, but also improve the overall look from a design aspect by adding in interior shutters. By doing this I not only was able to enlarge the windows but also kept the light coming in under control.
