Benefits Of Installing Window Shutters

With the wide range of window treatments available today, you may become unsure of what to select. Shades, blinds, and rollers have become popular window treatments for years. However, nowadays, window shutters are becoming progressively admired and favored. So once you have learned the advantages of having shutters, you may consider installing them as the new way to beautify your windows. These types of window coverings are becoming even more popular than blinds these days – partly due to the climate, but alot of it has to do with the way they look.

Energy efficiency will increase by installing interior window shutters.

Putting wooden layer coverings like shutters or timber blinds, to your window is like adding layers of insulation to your house. The fixed broad flat strips or louvers of plantation shutters will help maintain room conditions. Plantation shutters are attractive on windows but are significantly better window treatments for homes with old single-pane window or wide picture windows. The wrong window treatment will allow heat out in the winter and cold air in the summer.

When breeze blows through your open window, wood shutters simply do not create any noise. Blinds move about and whistle with the breeze, at the same time the curtains blow into the living room softly.  But with shutters, you will hear no sound. Shutters simply remain in place.

Shutters provide privacy, air, and light control.

Venetian blinds, roller blinds, and shutters differ in their capability to control air flow and the light getting through a room, as well as maintaining privacy condition. Shutters are better adjustable than blinds, letting in air but not light or vice versa. Your control of light and air flow depends on how windows are opened or closed and how louvers are angled. Angle the slats upward in order to have natural light in the room without creating glare on the TV screen or getting overwhelmed by it. Proper angling will help bring cool air into your room without allowing much light or compromising privacy.

Shutters are very durable and very easy to maintain.

Blinds, rollers, and curtains may be difficult to clean and may accumulate dust mites, while shutters are not complicated to maintain. They can be cleaned up with simple soft damp cloth. Wood shutters can be resistant to moisture, cracking, rot, and warping.  You may look for shutters with long or lifetime warranties for window treatments.

Shutters increases your home’s value.

Interior shutters enhance any décor with clean lines. They add beauty and functionality to your windows. In other areas, interior shutters are window treatments which are considered as major home improvement. This may be due to the energy efficiency of shutters. You can be sure of the home equity or appraisal of your house by installing interior shutters.

Like blinds and rollers, shutters offer plenty of variety.

Shutters in a café cover only the lower half of windows to get plenty of natural light and at the same time to have some privacy. These also appear in comfy breakfast bars and cozy kitchen nooks.  Some traditional old-style shutters use small slates, less than one inch wide, to make a classic look. Plantation shutters use wide louvers about three or four inches to create a distinct fashion statement.
