Start your day with natural light
The stylish look and flexible nature of these shutters are ideally suited to creating a darkened room for sleeping and flooding a room with light in the morning whilst you ready yourself for the day ahead.
At the same time as brightening your morning, you can maintain a level of privacy by setting the louvres at an angle – ideal where neighbours could see in if the window space was left completely clear.
Do shutters make the room dark?
In terms of light closure, shutters will never create complete blackout, no window dressing can create this affect completely on its own.
Shutters are extremely effective in creating a good level of closure and can make a room very dark indeed. Our clients find that the level of light removed when the louvres are closed is ideal for a good night sleep and even for an afternoon nap in most cases.
For people who work shifts and sleep at different times, we do have some bespoke room darkening solutions.
During the warmer months window shutters provide ventilation, whilst still maintaining light closure. If a window is left open or ajar, the air will still circulate through the shutter without causing it to move, unlike curtains or blinds. Ideal on hot evenings or even in winter to allow fresh air in whilst you sleep – the shutter will remain closed and stable throughout.
In addition, during the colder months of the year, a well-fitted window shutter has been proven to help reduce heat loss.
Which range and style is best suited to a bedroom?
We have a variety of materials available, starting from our entry level Seattle MDF range right up to the premium Montana hardwood range.
Full height remains our most flexible and favoured solution – where a window is covered from top to bottom with one panel.
