It’s the month of love and the perfect time to remind you why we love shutters. Although there are more reasons than we have time to list, here are our top ten.
Reason number one: Shutters offer great privacy control
When the louvres are closed, shutters provide complete privacy. More reliable than fabric curtains and blinds that can move with the slightest breeze or in some cases are semi-transparent, shutters are ideal for use in bedrooms and bathrooms.
“We opted for shutters in our bathroom as they provide privacy and look gorgeous.”
Reason number 2: Shutters create comfortable interior spaces
You can direct natural sunlight and control the warmth of a room by tilting the shutter louvres or closing them completely perhaps for an afternoon nap. In the same way, you can enjoy the natural cooling of fresh air without worrying about billowing curtains in a breeze when playing with your kids.
“The shutters are great for light and sun control and make the home feel cosy and safe.”
Reason number 3: Shutters are easy to maintain
Practical shutters require little to no maintenance and can be easily cleaned without having to remove them from the window or door opening as fabric curtains and blinds do.
“Living on the coast, we love that the shutters are low maintenance.”
Reason number 4: Shutters complement all Interior design styles.
Shutters complement all types of architectural design and look great in all interior decor schemes, from traditional to contemporary, industrial to coastal and everything in between.
“I have always loved the look of shutters – they look beautiful in old and modern homes.”
Reason number 5: Shutters are effective security barriers
As robust and reliable as traditional burglar bars and safety gates, AMERICAN shutters’ Security Shutters Range has the added advantage of style. Matching the elegant design features and smooth operation of timber shutters, this range enhances the interior design of any home without compromising on the aesthetics.
“My Security Shutters don’t only make my home look gorgeous, they also keep my precious family safe.”
Reason number 6: Shutters are versatile
Shutters can be manufactured in various configurations, hinged, Bi-Fold and By-Pass – depending on their purpose and the home’s layout. Suitable for both windows and doors, certain ranges can also be customised to fit unusual-shaped openings, so doing, enhancing the architectural features of a home.
“From the excellent advice on which shutters would suit our windows and doors to the custom manufacture and installation, I cannot fault AMERICAN shutters in any way.”
Reason number 7: Shutters create a seamless indoor-outdoor flow
Not only can certain shutters be installed both internally and externally, they help integrate the interior spaces of a home with outdoor entertainment areas or simply a gorgeous view.
“With the recent shutter installation, I was able to create a light and stylish living space that brings the outside in.”
Reason number 8: Shutters have timeless style
Shutters have, in various formats, been around for centuries. Dating back to the time of King Louis XIV in France in the 17th century to the most modern homes being built today, their aesthetic appeal transcends eras and trends.
“It has added a timeless sophistication and elegance.”
Reason number 9: Shutters add financial value
Considered permanent fixtures, shutters add financial value to a property, the full benefits of which you will see when you have your home evaluated or marketed.
“The quality is outstanding and the overall clean design of the shutters has worked exceptionally well and added immense value.”
Reason number 10: Shutters are simply beautiful
There is simply no window or door finish more stylish and beautiful than masterfully designed and manufactured shutters; the reason they are preferred by so many award-winning architects and interior designers.
“The shutters and blinds installed throughout our home and finish our home off so beautifully.”
