A window shutter is normally a stable and strong window covering generally consisting of either a rectangular frame of horizontal and vertical slats, or a flat panel usually made of glass or fabric and fixed within the frame itself. The beauty of window shutters is that they can often add very interesting decorative qualities to your home and are also very practical. Shutters are often used to provide privacy from peeping neighbours, to act as a divider between rooms or even to provide light and shade in a room that doesn’t have windows. A shutter is usually fixed to the inside of the frame by means of a series of fixed or removable brackets. These can then be fitted to the outside of the frame by means of simple jamb extensions. This then gives the shutters the appearance of louvered panels when the louvers are closed and the shutters appear to be solid on the outside when the louvers are open.If you’re looking for more tips, shutters has it for you.
Shutters, although often thought of as being a decorative window treatment, can actually have a great number of practical uses. For example, the shutters can often be used for light control. Because of the slats of glass that are available it is possible to block out much of the light and create a light controlled decor. In fact shutters are particularly popular in the kitchen where controlling the light is essential to creating an attractive atmosphere in the kitchen. Another practical use of shutters is for window treatment purposes and there are a wide variety of options available for window treatment purposes.
There are two main types of timber used to make shutters; these are solid timber and painted/stamped timber. Although solid timbers are more expensive, they are also considered to be more durable and have a greater degree of strength than the painted/stamped timber which can have a more decorative effect. Painted/stamped timber tends to fade and are not easy to maintain over time. If you decide on using shutters then you should ensure that the shutters are attached securely to the windows. A good quality set of shutters will often provide strong resistance to both temperature and pressure. As well as this you should check that your shutters are fitted with a locking mechanism so that they cannot be opened while the blinds or curtains are up.
