Why Shutters Are THE Best TYPE OF Window Covering

Window shutters provide homes with a look of sophistication and style, and plantation shutters in particular can transform a room with their polished, clean and classic look. Although they can be pricier than other forms of window covers, there are many reasons why they are a better choice.

1. Privacy

Shutters allow the control of light and airflow into your room. The shutters can be easily adjusted with a slight tilt so you can enjoy the light from outside but receive privacy from inside. You can also have your shutters motorised by having a small battery operated mechanism attached to the outside. This can also be applied if you already have had your shutters installed too.

2. Easy to clean

Synthetic shutters are engineered to cope with moisture, heat and UV rays without peeling, denting or chipping. PVC Shutters in the wet area are perfect as they are easily wiped clean from dust and grime that can build up in the bathrooms and kitchens. Other window coverings such as curtains and blinds in those humid areas can get permanent damage from mould. Our PVC shutters will not absorb moisture and the blades are made for strength and stability.

3. Complement all Décor

Shutters offer a clean, classic look and are easy to match with any type of décor.

4. Good Ventilation

Shutter blades can be adjusted to not only allow for privacy and light, but your windows can be open to let the air flow in, adjusting the shutters for maximum ventilation. Although this can be done with roller blinds, it’s likely to result in the roller blinds banging or tapping annoyingly in the breeze.

5. Long Term Cost Savings

Shutters are excellent insulators as they can be opened up fully to warm up a room during the winter, or closed to deflect light during summer.

Leaving the shutters positioned to direct the sunlight away from furniture and carpets will help increase the life of these costly household items too.

6. Increase Privacy

Plantation shutters can also be installed over niches or cut outs in your home. For example, a half wall for an office may have seemed like a good idea, but looking at a messy desk can be frustrating! Installing a Plantation Shutter will allow the privacy, divide the space, but still allow light in so the room feels airy.

7. Increase Resale Value

If you’re thinking of selling, appraisers will often increase your estimated home value if you have high quality indoor shutters, as they’re a permanent feature of your home that new buyers enjoy seeing.

Although they are a more expensive window furnishing, quality shutters won’t need replacing every few years, which means the higher initial investment will more than pay off over time with it’s quality, look and durability.
