I have been thinking lately very hard about my window treatments ... and flooring but don't let me start on flooring.

So window treatments, I know in my bedroom I want floor to ceiling curtains with a sheer layer and also a really heavy grey layer however in the kids bedrooms I wanted something a bit lighter and more airy. So I think I have decided on white shutters. They look great, easy to clean and I'm guessing they are hard wearing.... What do you think?

Also another question - would you continue them into the kids bathroom???

So many things to consider.

This bedroom in particular has got my creative juices flowing. Picture an all white and grey nursery with pops of bright yellow, a lovely white window seat under the window which will give stacks of room for toy storage ... I can see it already (And if hubby doesn't have a heart attach I would love to paint the roof in big yellow and white stripes!)

I love love love plantation shutters!!!

I am planning on having them in all the bathrooms but not sure if this will be possible since our windows have square set plaster reveals and we are tiling those reveals... Most of the planation shutters installers don't like fixing onto tiles as they have to drill them ... :(

I say go for it and continue in the bathrooms ;)

Also, although I love love love the look of them and think they look great in bedrooms, I for some reason am very paranoid that they wouldn't block out the light as well as blockout curtains would :( ... but I could be (and probably am) wrong :)

We have a mixture of white and timber shutters and they do block out the light :)

Shutters are divine. I think they go with everything! I chose roller blinds because I didn't think they could go over louvre windows but am disappointed in the look. Am investigating shutters now!

Shutters would be lovely in the kids' bedrooms and bathroom. I love the description of the nursery and could picture it with the yellow and white. I'm currently on the hunt for curtains for the master bedroom at our place and am going for something very similar to what you have described. Ange

Thanks Guys - Ange - The nursery is the room im most excited about decorating and probably the one I will be doing last ...I found a website that does online curtains at cheaper prices but will definately be looking at your blog with interest for your curtains. Thanks.

Also - glad everyone likes the shutters idea. Now I just have to sell it to hubby!
