Shutters – Making the Right Choice.

If you are looking into getting shutters for your home or office, the information below will allow you to weigh up your choices. Window shutters are an often-overlooked form of window furnishing. Most people turn to curtains or blinds to dress their windows, but shutters can offer an attractive and quirky alternative, and they have many practical benefits too.

Sound and Thermal Insulation

While shutters are closed, the wooden panels offer good sound insulation, and some heat insulation too. This works both ways – in the summer, it’s possible to open the windows while keeping the panels shut, allowing air to flow while keeping the heat from the sun out.

Low Maintenance

With some Blinds and curtains sometimes it is hard to keep fabrics clean. Shutters are a good choice for people with allergies, because they are easy to keep clean. Simply wipe them down with a damp cloth from time to time and you won’t have any issues with dust build-up. When you need a fresh look, simply re-paint the shutter in a different colour!


When you close a set of shutters they cover the whole window. When you adjust the louvres you can let light in, without making it easy for people to see inside your home. You can also fully open the shutters to sit neatly at the side of your windows, this will enable you to have a full view from your window.

Extra Curb Appeal

Interior shutters are a nice added-extra that could make your home more appealing to prospective buyers. They are a more ‘semi-permanent’ fixture than curtains or blinds, however, and this could backfire if the prospective buyer doesn’t like them. That said, it’s relatively easy to remove a set of shutters and replace them with blinds or curtains if that’s what the buyer prefers, and you can remind them of this.

UV Protection

Shutters with louvres can be angled to control how much light gets into the room – in much the same way that blinds can be angled. When you want to let light flood into the room, the panels can be fully opened. Adjusting the louvres can direct light away from furniture and flooring, protecting the furniture and preventing patterns from fading.
