Why Opt For Interior Shutters?

By Nicole Scott

Interior shutters are a good choice when you’re looking for window treatments. Though interior shutters are not as common as drapes, curtains or blinds, shutters are able to add a distinctive dash to positively any room in a home. There is a lot of flexibility regarding ventilation and privacy and they may be used with blinds and curtains if you wish.

Before you order you’re going to need to choose whether you need a full installation service or, if you are quite adept at DIY, the supply only service and fit them yourself. Shutters for difficult bay windows and special shapes, for example arches and circles, would be better off left to the experts. Standard windows would require some rudimentary skills and tools. For supply only orders you’d need to take accurate measurements and give them to the shutter manufacturer as you will not get a home survey included in the cost.

Wood, Composite or Vinyl

Depending on what you like, it is possible to get interior shutters in vinyl, composite materials like MDF and LDF or made out of natural wood. This would generally depend on your financial position, the dimensions of shutter and the colour you would like. Vinyl is more suitable for areas with high moisture content but won’t come in stained finishes. LDF and MDF are more cost-effective but again are not available in stained finishes. Natural wood shutters are far more costly but have a wide range of colours and stains available and because they’re going to be lighter they can be fitted on wider windows. Each one of the style options allow you to achieve a different feel to the room you are putting them in.


You can use interior shutters in kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and any other home area where you are wanting to make a statement. With the natural timber shutters you can have them made with any colour you would like, and ensure coordination with the rest of the features you have in the room.

Roman Blinds Or Curtains

Additionally, you can also use interior shutters in association with Roman blinds or curtains. This is quite often done with the cafe style plantation shutter where only the lower half of the window is covered. This will then allow the higher part of the window to be covered if required, in bedrooms for instance.

Temperature Control And Light

Shutters work exceptionally well to offer both temperature control, as well as blocking out light. By adjusting the louvers, you are able to regulate air movement both in and out of any room. Want some privacy? Just close the shutters tight and you may achieve complete privacy.

Once you have the interior shutters installed, they will be very low maintenance overall. Wooden shutters can be dusted, and vinyl shutters can simply be washed in warm soapy water.

Irrespective of how you opt to display the shutters, and what style of shutters you go for, you can be absolutely sure your house will look wonderful and be the envy of your neighbours.
