What do you need to know about wooden shutter installation?
As well as being an effective aesthetic touch for a property, wooden shutters also offer several other advantages. A cheap alternative to double glazing, some argue that wooden shutters are just as effective at retaining heat in a property; they are certainly more effective than other options, such as thick curtains. Another advantage of wooden shutter installation is privacy, which they can provide even if you choose to leave the windows open.
Before getting your shutters installed, you should think about the style that will suit your property best. Tier-on-tier and full height shutters can suit a variety of styles and themes. Alternatively, you may choose cafe-style-shutters that only cover the bottom half of a window, in case you want to create a cosy and secluded area without having to sacrifice all of your natural light.
The cost of wooden shutter installation will depend on a few factors, the most important of which will be the material of your shutters. Generally speaking, the two most popular choices are wood and composite: while the former has more visual appeal, it is the more expensive option and requires more maintenance. Composite is a cheaper material that resembles wood but is less durable.
Another important factor will be whether the shutters are internal or external. Internal wooden shutter installation is the more expensive option, but will do a lot more for the aesthetics of a room and can give you more control over light and ventilation. Exterior shutters will increase your curb appeal and provide greater protection against the elements. They will also provide more of a visual deterrent to potential thieves.
Finally, think about whether your shutters will be fixed or operable. ‘Fixed’ shutters are stuck to the window and will stay flat, while ‘operable’ options will usually have hinges that can be opened and closed. Naturally, the latter option is the more expensive of the two.
