What is a shutter blind?
Is it a shutter or a blind, I think when customers are searching or referring to a window treatment like ‘shutter blinds’ that they are really looking for a wood venetian blind with adjustable slats (like shutters).
They say ‘shutters’ thinking about about the adjustable louvre blades found on a plantation shutter and include the word blind as they are not fully committed to buying shutters just yet and are looking for something in between.
A venetian style blind will offer similar privacy options and allow you to adjust the light like you can with a window shutter. A venetian blind has wooden slats that are hung on cords from a top headrail. These slats generally cover the whole width of the window, while shutters panels can be matched to the different sections of your window allowing a much more flexible design and look.
Shutters come fitted within a frame, you can then choose how many shutters you have within that frame. By adding Tposts you can bespoke the widths of the panels ensuring when you look through the shutters all the uprights line up with the uprights of your window.
Cleaning shutter blinds…
Shutters are much easier to clean than blinds, they are solid and don’t move around when dusting. A blind however can be smaller and move around when cleaning because it’s only hanging down from a headrail. Plus the cords from the blinds can get in the way. Shutters do not have these cords making easy to run a duster along the blade on one go.
