Let’s look at some cool ideas for window shutters and how they can really give your home more of the wow factor.
Shutters Don’t Have To Be On the Windows Only
Of course, the usual practice is to have shutters installed on your windows, whether it’s for the interior of exterior of the house, but you’re not limited to that.
One way to add a feature to your home is to install a plantation or timber shutter in an open room or doorway to create an individual room or to close off an existing space. Choose from a bi fold, sliding, or standard operating system. Or, bring your personal ideas to us! We aim to go beyond the impossible to assist our customers. Search for window shutters online for some ideas.
For the eccentric out there, you could mount the shutters on the walls in your living room or feature wall as a kind of showpiece. You could even decorate the slats of the shutters with some natural or artificial plants and other decorations.
There really are quite a few nifty things you can do with exterior and interior window shutters other than (or as well as) using them on your windows.
The Advantages of Exterior Window Shutters
Exterior window shutters will add a layer of protection from the weather, along with a security boost. People who live in areas of harsh sun, high winds and damaging thunderstorms would be wise to have aluminium shutters installed on their home’s exterior. In the event of bad weather, simply close the shutters up and latch them to protect the glass on your window and doors. We also supply Cyclone rated Aluminium external shutters which are necessary for those high rise properties be it an office or residential space.
The finish look of our Australian made Aluminium external/internal shutters is both stylish and elegant. It will certainly add value and appeal to your home. Many of us spend time and money decorating the home’s interior, but it’s also important not to neglect the appearance of the exterior.
Use Sliding Shutters for Balcony and Patio Doors
Shutters are not always fixed or work on a swinging mechanism. They can slide on tracks just like panel glide blinds and other forms of window coverings. Instead of using vertical blinds or curtains on your sliding glass doors, really spruce them up with either timber or aluminium shutters which can glide open and closed effortlessly.
Like all shutters, you can adjust the blades to let in as little or as much light and breeze as you like. This style and appearance of this window shutter is first class.
