Seven reasons why shutters are better

February 14, 2014
  1. Cut your heating bills and help the environment: Closing shutters at dusk is proven to insulate windows and can dramatically reduce your heating costs. Choose FSC® certification for sustainable Poplar hardwood shutters that use even fewer precious resources.
  2. Easy cleaning for a healthier home: Dust is much easier to wipe off wooden slats than blinds and curtains. When these get ingrained with dust, it creates a breeding ground for dust mites. The result? Unpleasant itching and allergies.
  3. Invest in real curb appeal: You’re not just treating yourself to a crisp and contemporary revamp. When the time comes to sell, buyers will notice the difference too, since nothing says ‘modern and maintained’ quite like plantation shutters. They’re just the thing to disguise unsightly windows too.
  4. Perfectly fitted in every way: With shutters you can express your style as you cover a space. Made-to-measure to the millimetre, they can go anywhere you want and be finished in all the colours of the rainbow.
  5. Peaceful: A fully-closed wooden shutter acts as a natural noise barrier. Open or shut, our shutters are too sturdy and well made to bang and rattle around like blinds.
  6. With privacy comes peace of mind: Close your eye-level shutters to keep your room and its contents out of sight and still let the light shine in from above. Complete reassurance for relaxing roadside living.
  7. Control for light levels, protection from UV: No other window covering gives you better light control. Throw back your shutters to let the light flood in or angle the louvres upwards to keep the sun from fading furniture. (Don’t worry about fading shutters either; they’re finished in a UV protective paint or stain).
