What the best dressed windows are wearing.
An attractive alternative to blinds and curtains, shutters are becoming an ever more popular way to enhance living spaces. There are many reasons why, and it’s much more than just looks. They appeal to a wide range of people, because they’re elegant, well made and extremely practical.
Whilst other window trends come and go, shutters offer a timeless look that’s equally suited to both contemporary and classical interiors, and they are versatile enough to work beautifully in any type, size, or shape of window space.
On the practical side, shutters offer outstanding control of light and privacy levels in a room, and they will also protect you from excessive heat and glare in summer. It’s a benefit most people recognise, but perhaps less well known is that shutters can save energy and keep a property warmer in the winter months, helping to reduce expensive heating bills.
Experts suggest that heat loss can be reduced by as much as 50%, which is a performance that’s comparable to double glazing!
Shutters act as a natural sound barrier too, so intrusive noise such as traffic, is greatly reduced. Noise isn’t the only thing shutters keep out, because they are known to be effective as a deterrent to intruders.
Safety and healthy living is given greater importance to today’s homeowners, and once again, shutters ‘tick those boxes too’. Manufacturers use attractive and environmentally friendly materials, wiping away the problem of dust and dirt and helping to maintain stunning good looks for many years, with minimal maintenance.
With so many reasons to install shutters, it’s no surprise they are popping up in windows up and down the country.
