Converting the loft is a great way to add space and a new lease of life to your home. If you’re in the process of planning to convert your loft to create a new bedroom, home office or extra living space, it’s important to finish the new room off with the best window treatment available.
Here’s why shutters are the best treatment for loft windows:
Loft windows often aren’t the easiest of windows to dress. With a dormer conversion, you may find great difficulty in hanging curtains. The way curtains have to be hung with a pole could end up blocking some of the light, making your new room dark and gloomy.
If you’ve opted for skylights instead of dormer windows, you may wonder whether you need to leave the windows uncovered, resulting in a room that feels exposed. Or you may feel blinds are the only option for skylights. And just like curtains, blinds can make your room feel dull.
The solution to dressing loft windows isn’t struggling with a bulky curtain or dull blind but rather made-to-measure shutter blinds. Custom made for each window, shutters fit perfectly and with easily adjustable slats, allow for maximum light and privacy control.
Shutters are great for creating comfort in loft space. In winter, they help keep the space snug as they provide extra insulation. Meanwhile, in summer, when a loft space can become overheated, it’s simple to open the window and manoeuvre the slats to prevent direct sunlight while maintaining air flow.
From period houses to modern properties, shutters look great in all types of loft conversions and styles of homes and help improve your kerb appeal.
