Choosing Shutters

Once you have determined whether you want internal or external shutters, choose what style you prefer. Solid or louvre panels are most common – some louvre designs are adjustable so you can control the amount of light that you let in. Manufacturers may offer a range of other options, such as tongue-and-groove, solid panels with designs cut out of them, or shutters that only cover the lower half of the window. Shutters can be made of traditional wood, as well as aluminum and a range of other materials. Wooden shutters require more regular maintenance than other materials such as aluminium. Whatever material you choose, it is worth buying pre-fininished shutters – louvred shutters are very time consuming to paint. Shutters are sometimes supplied with cathes to hold closed and tie-backs to secure them in an open position.
