Can shutters increase the value of my home?

We often get asked by our clients what the correlation is between shutters and house prices, and if having shutters installed can help improve the value of their property. The answer is simply, a big, resounding, yes.

There are a few reasons for this, not least that shutters hugely increase the luxury and aesthetic of a home space making the property more appealing for prospective buyers when looking around to buy.

Curb-appeal

Shutters don’t just look brilliant inside of a house, they also add a great deal of aesthetic value to the outside of a home too – especially when other properties on the road have shutters too. This curb appeal is something that many homeowners consider when choosing the colour and style of their shutters throughout to ensure that a cohesiveness is achieved from the outside of the property as a whole rather than on a room-by-room basis as would be the case in the interiors.

The aesthetic of shutters isn’t where the cub-appeal ends though, they are also a great way to manage privacy in the home without having to completely block out the outside world which is hugely desirable.

Investment to a property

A luxury window dressing isn’t just an addition to a window, it is also an investment into the home. As a long-term solution, prospective buyers will be thrilled that their window dressing needs are solved and that they will be able to enjoy the privacy, light control, temperature, and many other benefits provided by the shutters for many years to come.

Valuers like properties in a top-quality finished state because doer-uppers require a huge amount of vision and there’s never any guarantee what these visions will come through so it needs to be taken as is.

Luxury Symbol

It may not be the reason you look to get shutters for your windows but interior shutters are a brilliant luxury addition to any home and are well known as a high quality window dressing that hold a particular symbol in interiors. This is a brilliant way to make your home really stand out as a truly luxurious place to be and not only actually increase the value, but give an increased value to the appearance of the home too.

Be careful not to cheap out

If you are looking to increase the value of your home with shutters, be careful not to fall into the trap of cheap copies of top quality shutter products. These alternative products can be tempting due to their price tags but the lower cost reflects the poorer manufacturing process and ultimately a shorter lifespan on the shutters. Signs to look out for in the shutter finishes are details such as non-twist core centres and mortise and tenon joinery which makes a strong, robust shutter product which will boost the value of your home. 

The expertise of companies supplying these shutters for you is also particularly important to ensure that the overall craftsmanship and measurements of the shutters are the highest standard they can be. In-house teams with vast experience, such as the experts we have on board and our unmatched experience in the industry truly make the difference between an average shutter, and the beautiful creme de le creme finish to your windows and homes.

I love my new blinds. They are high quality, look beautiful and were at the most competitive price. The fitters were also very polite and efficient.

Plantation shutters visited my flat 20 January 2022 to measure, discuss slat size and material, and give me a free estimate which I was happy with.
