Venetians or Shutters?

We're looking to get rid of the roller blinds we inherited with the house, and debating whether to go for venetians or shutters. House is an extended 1960's semi, it's now double-fronted with a small bay windows downstairs. I'm thinking with the bays that shutters may look smarter? But then I can't get my head around upstairs, I want everything to look nice and uniform from the outside, would shutters be odd in a bedroom? I'm guessing venetians would be way less expensive option. Thoughts from you nice people?

If money was no object I would pick shutters throughout the house.
Money is an object though so having to settle for Venetians instead.

Thanks, think we need to get a few quotes for both and see what's do-able. Can't decide whether the shutters would be a bit much on our bedroom windows, also they are not symmetrical (one narrow pane and one wide pane) so shutters might just look a mess. Am hopeless at home decor stuff, not a clue.

What about Roman blinds? Venetians are a nightmare to keep clean.

The shutters don't have to mirror the panes. We have shutters and I do love the aesthetic but they are a pain to keep clean.
If ease of dusting is important to you, don't choose shutters.
