2023 has arrived in style and now is the perfect time to match that style in your own home as January creeps to its end. When looking at your window dressings, choosing a solution that suits the needs of your rooms and home in every season can help to ensure that your home is always a prime comfortable temperature no matter the time of year.
Shutters are one of the most effective year-round window dressing solutions because they offer climate control in rooms no matter what the temperature is outside. In colder weather, the additional shutter layer in front of the window assists with temperature maintenance by preventing heat loss from the home. Keeping shutter panels closed helps to ensure that as much heat as possible remains in the room. As temperatures rise, shutters also act as an effective temperature control method as shutter panels can be closed with slats open in front of an open window so that cool air can cool the room down but without the room being as exposed as if the window was left open without any firm coverings on it.
Shutters come in a range of different colour choices with both painted and stained options available. White painted shutters are a great colour option for shutters because they reflect light away from the window space. This avoids the room overheating in warmer months when direct sunlight shines through and overheats the space through over exposure to the radiating sun rays that come through the space and can make rooms too hot.
