Five reasons to choose shutters this summer

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Shutters are now one of the most talked about types of window coverings. Apollo Blinds‘ interiors expert Mike Stephen offers five reasons why shutters are first choice for summer living.

1) They let the outdoors in

“Our shutters can be fitted on a tracking system meaning they can be folded back on themselves to save space and for seamless integration with the outdoors. When fitted to a ground floor with patio doors or large windows this will really open up your home to let the sunshine flood in.”

2) They’re not just neutral

“Shutters needn’t be white or cream. In fact, we’re seeing increasing demand for colours to coordinate or make a statement at windows, like these gorgeous rustic grey shutters from our wooden shutter collection.

3) They fit all shapes and size of windows

“If you have feature windows in your house then shutters are the ideal window dressing solution. Wood shutters can be fashioned to a bespoke fit for almost and shape of window – no matter how unusual.

4) They’ll bolster your security

Summer is a time when many homeowners go away for a long summer break and leaving homes empty. Shutters are lockable and robust, adding an extra layer of security to protect the weak points in homes (windows and doors) against intruders.”

5) They’re just so stylish “Quite simply they’re gorgeous!”
