The way in which you choose to decorate your home can bring a lot of excitement, as well as pressure to get it right. With your windows alone, the options can be endless. From shutters to venetian blinds, which is best? Let’s walk through the factors which may lead you to your final decision…

Light and privacy

When it comes to blinds, you can gain an effective blackout solution. However, shutters do give you the utmost flexibility; fully open or fully closed, with the ability to control every level of light in-between, as well as blackout. With a range of louvre sizes and styles, from full-height to café-style, you can customise a design allowing natural light to flood the room.

Research has shown that shutters are best insulator for your windows all year round, creating a firm barrier between your home and windows – Keeping your home warmer from the winter chills and also keeping your home cooler in the summer months.

The fit

Whilst blinds can be cut to size, when it comes to the fit, it’s a no brainer – traditional and plantation shutters are the ideal solution. Designed to fit any window shape or size, from large bays to a hexagonal entrance hall window, you can rely on a shutter solution that provides an effortlessly snug fit.

Cleaning_clothCleanliness

Whilst all forms of window coverings can attract dust, shutters are by far the easiest for cleaning. Dust, grime and odours can often embed into material blinds and can be difficult to clean. Shutters provide simplicity. Simply using a microfibre cloth or the brush attachment on your hoover, you can keep the dust away from your shutters. No difficult colds or strings to navigate around.

Weather resistance

To put it simply, blinds aren’t built to withstand wet, windy weather. In fact, if the weather did turn, you could find yourself closing all windows, no matter the temperature, to protect the blinds rattling in the wind. When it comes to shutters, there are a range of high-quality strong materials available on the market, from MDF to waterproof ABS. As a result, you are free to leave your windows open with complete confidence that the shutters will remain unaffected by the elements.

We may seem biased, but the proof really is there. For all-round safe, stylish, and energy efficient home décor, shutters could be the solution you need. Saying this, there is no limit when it comes to window dressings. It is all personal preference. Why not combine your window shutters with a roller blackout blind for ultimate privacy, or create a layered look with decorative curtains? The options are endless!
