1. Shutters give better light control than curtains

A big factor when choosing how to dress your windows is light. Do you want more light or less light? The benefits of shutters are that they offer you full control over the light levels that enter your room. And because interior shutters for windows allow you to regulate the distribution of light in your rooms better than curtains and blinds, you’ll need to use artificial light less, saving money in the process.

Conversely, when you prefer to use less natural light and keep the cold at bay, Solid wood shutters are an ideal choice. Internal shutters for windows also have heat-retaining attributes, which is also a key factor in keeping energy bills down.

3. Shutters are easy to clean and keep clean

No one likes the hassle of having to take down curtains to wash them or trying to dust Venetian blinds. Another benefit of having plantation shutters is that they are so easy to clean. We would recommend wiping down the slats with a damp cloth once a week – and that is it! As well as adding a relaxing feel to your home, the low maintenance requirements of a plantation shutter provide you with added downtime.
