Renovation is a simultaneously beautiful and horrendous time for every apartment owner. On the one hand you get to find things that you thought long lost, give that brand new feel back to some cheesy piece of wooden furniture that you inherited from your Grand-grandma, throw away a lot of stuff and feel freely in the visually bigger space with more air.
On the other hand a renovation is a time of never anding doubt. You keep calculating the measures, the amount of paint you're going to need. You are getting desperate about the expenses that grow bigger with every new day of the sustained mendings and upkeeps that simply don't seem to stop piling up. Even if it all goes relatively smoothly you try to see gallery after gallery on your favorite interior design sites and try to figure out if all those good-looking shiny or beautiful and rich vintage-style things won't be a bit over the top for your humble dwelling place that you only gave a fresh coating of paint and that's it (or on the contrary - if the county-style wooden private shutters that you fell in love with will actually suit your Empire styled living room).
It might seem bizarre but once the pricing issues are over and you know the precise sum you need and are ready to pay for the smartening up of your den the biggest stumbling block for reaching a fast and efficient ending is the style issues. But just a couple of simple common sense based rules will hopefully help you out considerably eliminating the problems of choosing the private shutters.
Pay attention to the overall style of the room. Don't overdo it and either use absolute contrasts (like black shutters ins a white room and vice versa) or eliminate them at all. The shutters are not only meant to bring the light it, but also to keep the idle prying eyes outsides - don't go for shutters that are purely decorative. Their ability to actually work matters much more than the ability to look good.
Choose the materials wisely. Don't go for toxic plastic with sharp edges in a kids' playroom because it will do harm. And don't go for paper oriental-style shutters in the kitchen because it will melt away, get dirty and smoked through very son or even catch fire. These simple pieces of advice should help you eliminate at least some portion of the renovation-related worries.
