The Wood Window Shutters On This House Match The Home’s Exterior So They Blend In When Closed

Window shutters add privacy, security, and protection from the rain. They’re often used as a distinct decorative element, but on this house designed by Egeon Architecten, the wood shutters were designed to match the exterior siding on the rest of the house.

The wood slat exterior of the shutters are mounted to steel frames with hinges and can be closed to protect the interior from the elements, like wind, rain, and sun.
