We started with fabulous floors and colourful carpets and rugs but this article looks at beautiful blinds and secure, but also sublimely beautiful, shutters. When it comes to windows and doors these can elevate and transform the entire look of your apartment or guesthouse.

Beautiful blinds

As top suppliers and fitters of tailor-made blinds in the Western Cape, we have written extensively on the benefits of fitting blinds as opposed to curtains to perfectly match your fabulous floors, but Interior Designers will also tell you that it’s not just about the great range of styles and colours available from modern blinds that make them so attractive, but also their great functionality.

Blinds can be tailor-made to fit your rooms no matter what the shape or size; they offer superior light control, regardless of the time of day or year; they let in air and light whilst you still enjoy complete privacy and finally, trendy new blinds are even remotely controlled!

Sensational shutters!

For those who don’t compromise on security for their guests but still choose to offer something much more elegant than security doors and burglar bars versatile, solid shutters are an excellent and amazingly attractive alternative

Don’t be fooled by the term ‘security’ Shutters – yes they are highly secure but also have adjustable louvres that afford you privacy, light and ventilation control thereby eliminating the need for additional curtains or fabric blinds. These are extremely trendy and will certainly give your guesthouse a touch of class!

Bonus tip – Beautiful wooden stairways, railings and balustrades also add so much elegance to any interior or exterior balcony especially when matched with the wooden floors you have chosen.
