With numerous possibilities out there, you'll need to consider your budget, tastes, needs and decorating style.  Deciding on these as your guidelines should help you make the right decision, stay within your budget and get the shutters that you require.

If you are cooking, dish washing or bathing near the window treatments then you'll want something that is easily wipe able and maintainable. Wood blinds, shutters or waterproof fabrics are all good choices.

In rooms that you watch television in or use your computer you'll want a window covering that reduces glare and that can be easily tilted. Offered in numerous colours and styles they're practical and pretty.
