Amish shutters can foster a homey feel in any room

by Tom Grimes

Homeowners who feel themselves drawn by the rustic charm of cabins may be looking for the ideal way to make their own rooms feel more homey. While investing in new pieces of traditional furniture may be a good start, this may not always be practical.

One effective way to almost instantly change the appearance of a room is to focus on its borders. Changing the window treatments of a space can refresh an atmosphere and, with pieces of Amish handcrafted furniture such as Amish shutters, one can fully embrace the modest and relaxing values of the countryside without completely overhauling the home.

These window treatments are carved from reclaimed wood, so they look dignified and aged but have the durability of brand-new items. They are available with a number of different painted nature scenes and can be the start of a whole new look for a room.

With over 25 beautiful finishes and paintings ranging from wildlife to flowers, these pieces can be ideal for homeowners who want to add a cozy feeling to their living space. They can also reflect a calming tone when placed in a vacation home by a lake or in the mountains.
