Window shutters are one of the most popular window dressings on the market and for a good reason. Not only are they incredibly stylish, but they’re also a great investment for your property.
Here are 7 reasons to install window shutters in your home.
With window shutters in place, you’ll experience far more privacy than with normal curtains, or blinds. With adjustable louvres, you can angle the slats to ensure you get the light you want while still providing privacy for the room.
2. LONGEVITY & DURABILITY
Made from solid wood or perhaps a waterproof plastic, shutters are an incredibly durable option as they are made to measure and created for your exact window frame. With professional design, manufacturing and installation, you are pretty much-guaranteed for years.
3. NOISE CANCELLING
Due to their snug fit, your window shutters will provide another layer that can help prevent outside noise. This is particularly useful if you live near a busy road.
4. LOWER ENERGY BILLS
Windows are one of the biggest areas in which a home loses heat. As I mentioned Shutters are made to measure, leaving very little room for any draft to creep in. As a result, many people notice their energy bills drop over time, be it by a very small amount, but every little helps!
5.CLEANING MADE EASIER
Unlike blinds and curtains, shutters are very simple to clean. Grab a damp cloth and give them a quick wipe and you’re good to go.
6. CURB APPEAL
As well as giving your home a more finished look from the inside. Shutters look great from the curb too! Win-win.
7. ADDITIONAL SECURITY
Window shutters offer extra security for your home, as well as keeping prying eyes at bay they also provide another solid layer of protection on your windows.
