When most people think of shutters, they think only of window covers for living rooms or patios.
But bedrooms? That may be something new to you.
It may seem unlikely at first, but you’ll be surprised to learn that shutters actually make excellent window covers for bedrooms as well – perhaps even better than those other rooms mentioned above.
Here are Five Reasons Why Shutters are Great for Bedrooms
1. Classic Look
Shutters provide a classic and timeless look that can add a touch of elegance to almost any bedroom. Timber shutters, in particular, are some of the most classic-looking window covers today, making any space feel homier and more inviting – just what you want in your bedroom! If you want something more modern without losing that traditional aesthetic, you’ll find shutters made of PVC and aluminium that can provide the balance you’re looking for.
Because they’re installed directly on your windows, shutters take up less space in your room than blinds and curtains. And because shutters sit directly on the recess of your windows without extending past its borders, they offer a cleaner and more organised look than other window covers. With no protruding elements, shutters also create an illusion of space that can make your room feel bigger.
3. Easy Light Control
Shutters let you control the amount of sunlight in your room easily, giving you the ability to go from complete sun blockout to letting plenty of sunshine in with a simple flick of your wrist. You can adjust the angle of the slats of your shutters quickly too, letting in as much or as little sunlight as you want without much effort.
4. Maximum Privacy
Shutters are second to none when it comes to creating privacy in your bedroom. You can close your shutters shut to block outdoor visibility completely, giving you maximum privacy whenever you want. With shutters, you can literally shut out the world from your view and enjoy personal privacy in your bedroom.
5. Great Insulators
Shutters are known as one of the best insulating window covers, helping to maintain the temperature inside better than most blinds and curtains. The thick and solid slats act as natural insulators, while the minimal gaps in between slats (when they’re fully closed) offer less space for the heat or cold to escape. These features are particularly useful in your bedroom, making it easier to keep your room warm or cool so you can rest more comfortably.
(As a bonus, shutters make it easy for you to adjust the slats at the right angle so you can let in the heat or the breeze without compromising your privacy.)
Need More Convincing?
Over the past several years, shutters have been coming back in style (some even say they never left!).
Homeowners are now realising the benefits of shutters not just for their living rooms, but their bedrooms as well. And given all the benefits above, we’re not surprised!
