Window shutters are a classic example of an attractive yet practical window treatment. Often made from wood, they have been around for hundreds of years, long enough to be considered an antique. A window shutter basically consists of a strong and durable frame usually consisting of two vertical rails and horizontal brackets attached to it. Also contained in the frame is typically louvers, panels, glass, any other material and pretty much any item that could be installed inside a shutter.Learn more by visiting Window Shutters Hastings
Window shutters, unlike most other types of blinds and curtains offer an easy way to control the amount of light that enters a room through the openings at the top and bottom of the louvers. Depending on the interior design, most window shutters will provide some degree of insulation as well, keeping the interior temperature of a room cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter. Because they block out much of the natural daylight, the interior temperature will stay relatively constant no matter what the weather outside. For those who enjoy a little bit of sunshine and want to keep their energy costs down, this can be a great option.
Shutters also provide an excellent way to add a decorative touch to a room. Although they do require much more maintenance than curtains or drapes, they do not fade, warp or need to be replaced because of wear and tear. There is a huge selection of colors and patterns available, allowing homeowners to easily coordinate their window shutters to their existing interior decor. Whether the homeowner chooses to buy brand new window shutters or simply add some new slats, he or she will still find that these beautiful window treatments offer an effective way to both save money and increase the value of their home.
