Plantation Shutters Are Ideal For City Homes

If you live in the city, you will be familiar with unwanted noise, bright streetlights and more often than not passers-by peering in. If you’re at the end of your tether with the pitfalls of city living, plantation shutters may be for you.

Here’s why shutter blinds are the best window solution for city homeowners:

Blocks out noise

Living in the city can be extremely noisy with cars, trains, planes and not to mention, loud pedestrians. But fitting plantation shutters can keep the noise transmitted through your windows to a minimum. As shutters from Totally Shutters are made-to-measure, fitting perfectly inside each frame, they filter even more noise.

Keeps privacy high

Sometimes, living on a busy street can mean pedestrians checking out your decor and noseying what you’re watching on the TV. Shutters allow the daylight to enter your room while obscuring the gaze outside. Simply by moving the slats of your shutters, you can control the light and privacy of your home.

Stops street light glare

Street lights outside your window can be a right pain, ruining the ambience of your home and disturbing the sleep of both adults and children. If this is a problem in your city home, shutters can block light effectively. And our shutter and shade range blacks out 99% of all external light.

Improves home security

As shutters provide an extra barrier at the window, something which blinds and curtains don’t, shutter blinds improve home security. What’s more, shutter slats can be angled to prevent potential intruders from checking out the contents of your home.

Retains value

Enhancing the value of your city home is important in today’s property market, and shutters add to your home’s kerb appeal while helping to increase the value of your home when it’s time to put your city pad on the market.

Security Shutters for Complete Home Security Confidence

With recent crime figures showing that burglaries in the UK have risen by 32% over a 12 month period, with 28% of burglars gaining access via a rear window, there has never been a better time to secure your home.

From extra locks on your doors and windows to installing a burger alarm, security lights and sometimes even CCTV, most of us will do anything to protect our homes, belongings and loved ones. But if you’re looking for an extra layer of security in your home, security shutters may be the solution for you.

Far from the rattly, rusty steel shutters seen on many run-down properties on the high street shops, our Portchester aluminium security range offers unparalleled home protection without compromising on looks.

Here are 5 benefits of our Portchester aluminium security range:

1. Unparalleled durability

Our Portchester security shutters are durable and incredibly hard wearing, featuring a powder coat for a long-lasting and anti-corrosion finish. And for added reassurance, our security shutters are CE certified to meet the EU’s rigorous quality standards.

2. Elegant and hardwearing

Unlike traditional security shutters that are often unsightly and built for purpose with design an after-thought, our Portchester security shutters combine strength, security and elegance in a one-of-a-kind package.

3. Controlled weather properties

With adjustable 89mm louvres, Porchester security shutters allow you to control the air flow coming into your home, helping you to control seasonal weather elements, meaning you can minimise the sun’s heat in the summer and retain warmth during the winter.

4. Matches your interior

As our Portchester security shutter range resembles our existing shutter products, you can mix and match shutter styles while enjoying a consistent design throughout your home. Our security shutters are available in full height as well as bi-fold and on a bypass track system. As well as standard deluxe colours, a custom colour option is available to suit your interior design tastes.

5. Privacy and light control

Our security shutters offer complete privacy control and also provide excellent light control, allowing you to get the right sunlight levels the way you like them.

6. Interior and exterior features

Made from architectural grade aluminium, our security shutters are corrosion resistant, hard-wearing and work both inside and out, while looking just like any other plantation shutter.
