Are you about to embark upon a great creative project, such as writing a novel, painting a work of art or making a sculpture? If so, you may wish to consider installing shutters in the room where you intend to work on this project. Of course, creativity isn’t dependent upon environmental conditions. However, many artists, novelists and other creatives find it much easier to work on their projects in quiet environments that they can control. Shutters can help you create the optimal creative environment, as we’ll demonstrate in today’s blog.
Firstly, it’s important to understand that the creative process is made up of two equal components: inspiration and hard work. Inspiration involves knowing what you want to create and being able to imagine it in detail. This gives you something to work toward. However, you then have to put in hours of hard work to make this vision a reality. Installing shutters can help with both parts of the creative process.
Window shutters block out sound and also create a sense of privacy. In other words, they create an environment in which you can think clearly and not worry about distraction. This naturally helps with inspiration. It’s harder to be creative when you’re surrounded by noise and distraction, but if you remove these things you’ll be able to concentrate on the first part of the creative process: you’ll be able to visualise what you want to create.
Shutters also allow you to control the ambient temperature and the light level in your environment. Adjusting the slats can control how bright or hot the room is. This should help with the second part of the creative process. It’s easier to concentrate on work in a comfortable environment. Ergo, you’ll find it easier to commit to the hard work demanded by the creative process if you install shutters to make your work-space more comfortable.
