The Benefits of Window Shutters
Window shutters are an excellent but often overlooked window treatment. They can provide a number of protective benefits to your home and look great at the same time. They are identifiable by their slatted wooden panels that swing into place, and can add some real charm to your home with the right set. This month, Boyd’s Blinds will look at this particular window treatment in a bit more detail, providing the top benefits of installing window shutters in your home.
Beat the elements
Window shutters, especially interior shutters, are excellent at regulating the temperature in your home. In the summer months, interior shutters can help defend your home from sun and heat, meaning you don’t have to worry about air conditioning. However, in the winter, exterior shutters can be excellent at fighting the wind and cold. In fact, exterior shutters can even help protect your home against storms; their sturdy nature will help combat debris and extreme weather.
Get some privacy
Another key benefit of window shutters: privacy. In the summer it’s nice to let some fresh air in, but this is often done at the expense of some privacy. It doesn’t have to be this way, though. Window shutters can block a lot of the excess heat whilst still letting air in (the amount of which can be adjusted), meaning you don’t have to worry about nosy neighbours and you can still keep cool!
Luckily, window shutters are very simple to customise. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, meaning it’s fairly simple to find the right size to fit your windows. However, here at Boyd’s Blinds, we offer bespoke window shutter fittings and, as such, we can ensure that you get a style and size that is tailored exactly to your home’s individual specifications.
The benefits of window shutters are not strictly functional – they look great too! From cedar and phoenix to grovewood and Vienna, they come in a wide variety of different styles and finishes, leaving you with plenty of choice to match them with your home. What’s more, they offer their own charm to homes which they decorate.
Control the light
As lovely as summer is, constant bombardment from sunlight can really take its toll, especially in the morning. However, with window shutters this is easily avoided; you can control the amount of sunlight that is let in by simply twisting the rod, keeping your bedroom dark and cool for when you need that lie-in!
Beef up your security
Alongside their other practical benefits, window shutters can also act as another line of defense against intruders. All shutters can be fitted with a latch if requested, your windows effectively get a second lock on them!
