Plantation shutters are very fashionable right now. Forget curtains or blinds. It’s the traditional wooden shutter that’s gaining popularity in homes across the UK. In fact, the Sunday Times noted that plantation shutters are now ‘Britain’s window dressing of choice’. So why are these traditional window treatments becoming so popular with homeowners and interior designers? We take a look at the key reasons why the British public is putting plantation shutters at the top of their list.
They’re Made to Measure
Quality window shutters are made to measure, giving you the perfect fit every time, whatever the shape or size of your windows. This means no gaps and no light bleed. In addition, because bespoke shutters retain the original outline of your windows, they accentuate the beauty of feature windows such as bays and arches. If you’re looking for made to measure window shutters in Midhurst, our specialist fitters will measure and install your shutters to perfection.
They’re Built to Last
Window shutters are extremely hard wearing and require little to no maintenance. Quality shutters have the durability to cope with busy family life and keep looking as good as the day they were first fitted. Whether you choose traditional wooden shutters or our equally attractive water resistant shutters, they’re a beautiful and resilient solution that will stand the test of time.
They Let you Control Light Levels
When it comes to light control, window shutters really excel. The slats can be tilted from fully open to fully closed, and anywhere in between. With tier on tier shutters you have even more flexibility, with the option to adjust the panels individually. Whether you want lots of light and a view, complete privacy, or soft shading, you can adjust your shutters to suit.
They Provide Privacy
Window shutters will offer full window coverage when needed. With all the slats closed, they give you maximum privacy. This makes them the ideal choice for houses on busy roads, ensuring passers-by do not get a view of your interiors. However, you’ll also have the option to let the light and air flood in when required. Open up the slats on the top section of your shutters, or even fold the shutters back completely. It’s the best of both worlds.
They Come in a Range of Styles and Colours
We can offer window shutters to suit every taste and style. Whether you’re looking for a painted finish or prefer the natural wood texture of stained shutters, our experts can select the perfect match for your décor. You can also select from traditional or portobello shutters, depending on your preference for period or contemporary styles. Whatever your taste, we’ll have the shutter to suit you.
Window shutters are a beautiful addition to any home. They blend seamlessly into your interiors, adding a contemporary touch of style that’s enduringly fashionable. They’re hard-wearing and easy to maintain. And they’ll keep their good looks for years beyond the likes of curtains or blinds. What’s more, they’ll improve your kerb appeal and boost the value of your home. It’s no wonder that window shutters are Britain’s first choice.
