This is the last of my blogs about the benefits of wooden window shutters, however, if you think I’ve missed something then please feel free to let me know by commenting on my blog or contacting me through my website.
For me, one of the greatest benefits is that shuttered windows create space. Physically they do this because the frame and shutter panels are actually fitted into the window recess, so don’t protrude into the room. As many of my customers choose white or a light colour this creates the impression of space in a room, and the simplicity creates an uncluttered feel. I have come across customers who have previous fitted their curtains across the front of a bay window, which means they have lost a chunk of space when the curtains are closed. Replacing those curtains with something that sits in the window recess has significantly increased the space and impact of their room.
I always advise matching windows, which for most people are usually white, as by doing this cuts down on future decorating costs. If you choose white it means that it will match any future decorations or furnishings that you choose, which means you don’t have to re-spray or replace your wooden window shutters. As they are designed to be long-lasting and by many are seen as an investment, this is another great benefit. Especially as their timeless style blends with both modern and traditional décor so you really can completely transform your room yet leave your shutters in place.
If you have had your shutters for some time, don’t forget I can always re-spray or refurbish them for you if they need refreshing. This is a good way of restoring them to glory without having to fork out for new ones. I also supply free touch up paint with my wooden products in case of chipping, however, the 7 layers of spray paint means that this is rarely necessary.
