You just placed your order for beautiful interior wood shutters and now it’s time to think about the hardware. When you choose interior shutters for your home, it’s like adding a completely new set of furniture to it. It’s going to completely transform the look and feel of your entire house.
The type of hardware you choose can make a significant impact on the overall appearance of those shutters, and it can have a direct impact on how they match with the color of the walls, furniture, rugs, and anything else within a specific room.
Below are a few things to think about when looking into hardware options for your interior wood shutters in your Toronto home.
Because of the climate that we had enjoy in Toronto, we don’t have to worry too much about corrosion as you might deal with living closer to the ocean, for example. However, stainless steel and aluminum hinge straps are good option no matter where you live.
Choose hardware that is sturdy enough to withstand the type of use they will be getting. In other words, if you plan on using the shutters on a daily basis, focus on hardware that won’t break down and wear out within a few months or even a couple of years. The hinge straps should be sturdy and able to withstand some regular use.
Focus on bolts that are going to withstand the constant opening and closing of the shutters if you plan on using them on a daily basis. If you use cheaper bolts, over time they can become loose and may rattle if you have the windows open during the spring and summer months.
You don’t necessarily have to choose hardware sets for your interior wood shutters, but this could be a cost-saving option. The most important thing when choosing hardware is selecting a style that will fit your home best and be pleasing to the eye.
