Window Coverings help: To shutter or not to shutter?
So my house has oddly shaped windows. We love the windows as they are the main design feature of the house, however, window coverings are becoming very difficult. Our contractor has built a frame for shutters to sit in the windows, but I'm not sure if I am happy with shutters. My concern is they will a) block too much light, b) hide the pretty windows and c) The windows shown have a window seat below. To sit in the window seat comfortably, the shutters will not be able to be opened..
I'm linking a few pictures that show the shape of the windows and a sample shutter held in place (although not the correct size). If anyone has any advice/opinions, we'd love to hear them! This is one of the upstairs bedrooms in which it would be ideal to block out light for kiddos to sleep!
Thanks in advance!
