Why choose hardwood for your window shutters
Wooden window shutters are an unrivalled window dressing choice. They are a timeless, classic addition to any home regardless of its age or style and can completely transform the look and feel of a home.
Choosing the right type of shutter for your home, however, can be quite daunting as there are many different types of wood, shutter styles and options for you to consider. Here at Purely Shutters our experienced surveyor will be able to talk you through all of the options to ensure you select the most appropriate type of shutter for your home and your style of living.
Our shutter ranges which include Clifton Hardwood and Lansdown Basswood are both made from hardwood. The Clifton range is made from Paulownia wood, a fast growing hardwood which can be harvested every 7-10 years, and our Lansdown range is made from a premium grade basswood, the Linden tree, which is a renewable natural resource.
Both of our hardwood shutter ranges are lightweight yet durable, with the Clifton hardwood having an unbeatable ratio of strength to weight. Both woods are light in colour and have a fine soft grain resulting in a perfect finish. Both ranges come in a variety of standard colours, but you can also colour match your shutters to a colour of your choice to match your décor.
As well as their durability, hardwood shutters offer many other benefits some of which we’ve detailed below.
Many of us have spent more time at home in recent months, and for some, noise pollution has become much more noticeable in and around our homes. As our wooden window shutters are made from a hardwood they offer a natural noise barrier and are a great choice for rooms like bedrooms, where you would like to keep noise at bay. You can even opt for solid shutters for these rooms to really get maximum protection without compromising on style or elegance.
Wooden window shutters also help your home become more energy efficient throughout the seasons. In the winter they help your home stay warm as they create an insulative barrier between the cold glass and the air in the room, and in the summer you can close your shutters to keep the sun out, keeping your home nice and cool.
Privacy & Security
Whether you would like additional security around your home or would like to increase your privacy from the outside world, wooden window shutters are a great choice for both these reasons. As shutters have louvres, you can angle the slats in various ways to stop prying eyes entering your home.
And finally, for those of us who love to keep cleaning to a minimum, wooden hardwood shutters are the perfect choice. To keep them clean and dust free, simply wipe them over with a damp cloth!
