Types of Custom-Made Shutters
There are two types of shutters. The first is the interior shutter. The primary purpose of these is privacy and security. Unlike curtains or drapes, interior shutters give you complete control over the amount of light that comes into a room and the number of private moments that get out.
While they have become one of the most popular window treatment types in Hamilton, interior shutters are not all made equal. Depending on the composition, the blades vary in performance against UV exposure, heat, and humidity. This difference can significantly influence the design of the interior shutters.
For instance, timber shutters are relatively inexpensive and aesthetically pleasing but are not equipped to handle substantial exposure to sunlight. Conversely, synthetic products are comparably cheap and hold up much better to the elements. This option continues to go down in price and is particularly attractive for homeowners in need of white or off-white shutters.
Exterior shutters are an easy way to add a personal touch to the outside of your home. The right design can boost the resale value of your home and increase kerb appeal. The range of colours and materials is almost endless and includes options such as wood, aluminium, fibreglass, composite, and vinyl.
Exterior shutters are best suited to deck, kitchen, or balcony areas that may effectively be unusable because of excessive sun or wind. The wide blades can minimise that exposure while maximising comfort. Exterior shutters are also an ideal way to control your privacy as you can change the angle of the blades.
