10 Reasons to Love American Shutters
Still on the fence when it comes to choosing the right window treatments? Here are 10 reasons to love shutters, with some of our favourite looks from AMERICAN shutters.
1. COMPLETE PRIVACY
Other than aesthetic appeal, shutters are ideal for bedrooms and bathrooms because of the privacy they provide. When the shutter louvres are closed, shutters provide complete privacy by blocking out views of the interior. Custom features like the flexibility to open certain louvres while closing others, take shutters a step above standard fabric curtains and blinds that move with the slightest breeze or can be semi-transparent.

2. EASY TO MAINTAIN
Shutters are practical and require little to no maintenance. They are also super easy to clean, all you need is a damp soft cotton cloth and a small broom or vacuum cleaner to remove dirt from the bottom channel. Follow these maintenance and cleaning guidelines.
3. CUSTOMISABLE COMFORT
With shutters, you can control the natural light and ventilation in your home by opening and closing the panels or louvres. On sunny winter days direct natural sunlight and warmth into a room by tilting the shutter louvres open, or on hot summer days you can block the sunlight out by closing the louvres. In the same way, you can enjoy the natural fresh air without worrying about billowing curtains in a breeze. Find out more about the benefits of shutters here.
