If you are still on the fence whether to go for shutters or curtains and what would suit your home and style, then we are here to make your decision easier.
We know and believe that plantation shutters are a lot better than curtains in many ways. And we know you may think of course we would say that being a shutter company but in fact, they are more durable, can add value to your property and more importantly, they are much more stylish than curtains.
Shutters are a fuss-free made to measure product so they not only can be fitted to the inside or outside of the window recess, hugging the window seamlessly, but also can be made for any kind of window shape. So, whether it be square, rectangular, circle or triangular, we’ve got you covered. Shutters are a great source of privacy while still letting the light in whereas with curtains it is either one or the other, so no compromise is needed when it comes to shutters.
Shutters are a great solution for all kinds of weather all year round as they not only keep the heat in when it is cold outside and also keeps the home cool when it is hot. Plantation Shutters act as an insulating layer when the panels are closed. In the warmer months, combined with open windows, the gaps between the slats allow air to flow which also helps you to manage the temperature. Curtains can also offer this as well but if there is even the slightest breeze you will have the annoyance of the curtain blowing into the room if you are wanting that extra privacy or blocking the sun from a certain spot. You won’t need to worry about that with shutters. Shutters really do offer the best of both worlds when it comes to maintaining temperature and privacy in your home.
Although curtains can be a popular choice, they need to either be opened or closed to keep the sun off your stuff, completely obstructing the view outside and keeping the house much darker than you may want it to be. Also, with the harsh UV rays from the sun, your curtains and other furnishings can fade, and shutters prevent that from happening, keeping your home’s contents protected. Shutters also help to save on space in your home leaving room for more important things like furniture, whereas with curtains you will need to leave space in front of them, so you are able to open and close them with ease.
Shutters may cost more than most curtains, but you defiantly get what you pay for. So, if it's quality you are after shutters are for you. If you are also thinking of selling your home in the future shutters are an investment as well as being aesthetically pleasing as they add value to your home.
