How to choose the perfect shutters
March 17, 2017 admin

Shutters come in a variety of sizes and materials to suit a wide range of homes. They can make it dark, airy, secluded, private or open depending on what mood you’re in. They not only add to the overall look of your home, but enhance the atmosphere and protect it from the elements. So which type of shutters are best for your home?

Protect your home with roller shutters.

Roller shutters are sturdy and reliable. If you live in an area prone to extreme weather, then roller shutters are the perfect solution to protect your home. Roller shutters are controlled via remote, which means that you can quickly zip them down when green clouds are approaching and the threat of hail is imminent. Similarly, roller shutters are the best way to offer you peace of mind while you’re holidaying. Roll them down before you set off and rest assured that no break in’s will ruin your time off!

Enjoy the view with louvre shutters.

Louvre shutters are perfect for homes that enjoy a view. Whether you live on the coast or rurally, if you have rolling hills or water sunsets to enjoy, you want to make sure you get to see them every day. But this doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your comfort. Louvre shutters allow you to enjoy views when you like, but roll them back for privacy in the evenings or when it just gets too hot and you need to keep out the afternoon sun. Versatility is key in your home, and fixed shutters simply don’t provide for your changing views and needs!

Set a stylish trend with plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters are the ultimate in style and class. Despite their affiliation with expansive properties and traditional country homes, plantation shutters look superb in a wide variety of houses. Typically made from wood, plantation shutters can be painted to seamlessly integrate into modern or classic homes. Their slats are wider and sturdier than normal blinds so that when they are open, the room is filled with natural light, but when they are closed, they act as a perfect barrier to moonlight for the best night’s sleep. They’re sturdy, so when there is a delicious cool breeze blowing, there will be none of that noisy clanking that comes with flimsy plastic blinds.
