Durability and longevity

What are the advantages of shutters?


Greater control over light and privacy

Shutters have adjustable louvres, which allow you to fine-tune the amount of light and privacy you want in your home. You can also tilt the louvres upwards to allow for airflow, or close them completely for blackout conditions. Venetian blinds and roller blinds can also offer light and privacy control, but not to the same extent as shutters.


Improved insulation

Shutters can help to insulate your home, both in the summer and winter. In the summer, they can help to keep out heat, while in the winter, they can help to trap heat inside. This can lead to lower energy bills and a more comfortable home. Venetian blinds and roller blinds do not offer the same level of insulation as shutters.


Durability and longevity

Shutters are made of durable materials, such as hardwood or PVC, and are built to last. They are also less likely to be damaged by children or pets than venetian blinds or roller blinds.



Shutters can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any home. They come in a variety of materials, colors, and styles to suit any décor. Venetian blinds and roller blinds can also be stylish, but they do not offer the same level of customization as shutters.

What are shutters made of?

Shutters can be made from a variety of materials, including:

  • Polycarbonate: This is a more affordable option than timber shutters. They are also lightweight and easy to maintain.
  • PVC: PVC shutters are another great option for your home or business.
  • Composite: Composite shutters are made from a mix of materials, such as wood and PVC. They offer the best of both worlds, in terms of durability, affordability, and ease of maintenance.

How are shutters installed?

Shutters can be installed inside or outside of the window frame. Inside mount shutters are typically easier to install, but they may not be suitable for all windows. Outside mount shutters can be installed on any type of window and will require some drilling / fixing into the structure.

How easy are they to maintain and clean?

Shutters are relatively easy to clean and maintain. To clean hardwood shutters, simply wipe them down with a damp cloth. PVC and composite shutters can be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution. You should also dust your shutters regularly to prevent dirt and debris from building up.

Overall, shutters offer a number of advantages over venetian blinds and roller blinds, including greater control over light and privacy, improved insulation, durability and longevity, and aesthetics. Shutters are made from a variety of materials, including hardwood, PVC, and composite. They can be installed inside or outside of the window frame, and are relatively easy to clean and maintain.
