Autumn is in full swing and as beautiful crisp leaves tumble from the branches above and Christmas gifts begin to adorn the shelves of every supermarket, we start to turn our attention towards winter time. But what’s the best window covering for your home during these colder months?
There’s no better way to dress your windows for the colder seasons than plantation shutters. The stylish solution is the perfect way to spruce up your decor and bring some much-needed warmth and cosiness to your home. Here are three advantages and benefits for shutter blinds during the winter months:
The main benefit of shutters during winter is to keep the heat in and reduce energy bills. Approximately 25-50% of all heat escapes out of the windows, so regardless of how long you keep your heating on, you can be wasting incredible amounts of warmth and money. Plantation shutters create a barrier which prevents the heat from escaping, proving a good investment in the long run.
When night draws in, privacy can be invaded. Traditional blinds don’t provide a great deal of privacy and you may find passerby’s catching a peek of you watching television. Plantation shutters offer total privacy, providing a barrier that is 100% effective, so your family can cosy up together in the privacy of your own home.
Most people spend more time in the warmth of their home during the winter months, which can often result in more cleaning. Shutters require little maintenance and hardly any cleaning – just a quick wipe down now and again – so you can spend more time with your loved ones.
