We finally have some sun in the UK and it’s nice to keep the house as cool as possible.
Using plantation shutters to keep your house cool is the perfect option and they look far better than pulling curtains closed across your window.
The louvres can be tilted to let the light in but they will also stop the sun light coming into your room keeping it cool, and prevent the sun from bleaching furniture or flooring. Light is reflected from the louvre blades into the room keeping it bright and as there are different slat sizes, you can choose how much light or privacy you want.
With plantation shutters you can open your windows and still keep the shutter closed with the louvres tilted, this means they provided added security along with ventilation to keep your home cool at the same time.
If you think you might be opening your window regularly or you are near the street, remember you can order locks for your shutters.
As well as keeping the sun out in the summer, plantation shutters can also help keep the heat in during the winter. The slats on these shutters are 8.5-12mm thick, so they help insulate your window all year round.
