Benefits of Window Shutters

Window shutters are usually overlooked when homeowners are considering window furnishings. Most people often turn to blinds or curtains to dress windows, however, shutters provide a quirky and attractive alternative for your home. 

If you’ve been looking for a modern‌ ‌window covering that can replace your existing curtains or blinds, then take a look at shutter blinds/wooden shutters. They are a great alternative to your home. If you would like to find out how installing window shutters to your home could benefit your day to day life then take a look at the points below. 

Increased Privacy

Shutters offer you full control over your home’s privacy, enabling you to completely keep out undesired attention either during the day or at night. In contrast to curtains, there is no gap left through from where nosey neighbours or intruders can peek. 

Control Sunlight and Heat

The greatest benefit that a window shutter offers over old curtains is the way in which you can easily control the amount of light entering the room from the outside. The blind shutters can either be opened or closed all way or they can easily be partially opened. This will be highly beneficial, especially during the summer when you may want to keep the room cooler or you may wish to retain heat in those chiller winter months.

Safety

If your main focus is to make your home more child-friendly, then shutter blinds are a good option. The main reason why window shutters are safer than curtains is that wooden shutters do not have any strings that could pose risks to your pets or children. You may wish to fit the window shutters instead of curtains in your child’s playroom or bedroom.

Reduced Noise

Fitting wooden shutters or shutter blinds has been shown to minimise levels of outside noise, this helps to shut out any noise or busy traffic that can potentially disrupt your quiet afternoon. 

Money, Money, Money.

Depending on the brand and style of wooden shutters you wish for, there may be a small upfront cost. Whilst this is less likely when purchasing curtains and blinds, you will be saving money in the long run. Wooden shutters serve as insulation for a home and can reduce the warm and cool air from entering your home. The wooden shutters act as a barrier to prevent heat from escaping your home, helping to control the temperature of your home all year round. This can help to reduce your energy bills in the long run, as you will no longer have to turn up the heating as often.

Durability

Window shutters are coated with a high-quality finish, the finish helps to prevent the wood from fading and water damage. As they are very durable, there is no need to worry about replacing them anytime soon. 

 

Easy-to-use, energy-efficient and stylish, it is fair to say that window shutters are the way to go. They increase security, increase privacy, boost energy efficiency, reduce costs, block out light, minimise external noise, durable and can increase the property value of your home.
