There’re so many options out there for window dressings and the decision can be difficult to know what would best suit your home and style, Blinds or Shutters? Aren’t they the same thing? We’re here to offer you some clarification on the subject and make the decision between the two easier.
Both shutters and blinds have louvres, so you control the light, privacy and air coming into your room but it’s all comes down to the material and the way they are made. Shutters are a made to measure product that is fitted to the inside or outside of the window recess, hugging the window seamlessly while still having the freedom to open and close the panels as you wish, whereas blinds don’t give your that sort of freedom. Blinds can also be fitted to the inside or outside of the window recess but are lifted up and down by using a string that can quite easily break or get tangled.
