The Benefits of Shutter Doors

Here at Purely Shutters, we believe that shutters are a great interior investment, and if we could have it our way, everyone would have shutters in their home! There are many advantages that shutters provide, from increased privacy, noise reduction to aesthetic enhancement, and these are only a select few we have mentioned! 

But did you know that shutters don’t have to just solely be used for window dressings, they can also be used as shutter doors.

Plantation Shutters are the most common form of shutter doors, and depending on your preference, can be made into wide, long panels or into bi-folds that fold back out of the way. At Shutterly, we have shutters for patio doors and French doors, and we think that they’re a wonderful addition to any home. Not only do they help maximise your interior space by seamlessly integrating the outdoors with the indoors, but also visually enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home. How about infusing your home with a touch of sophistication and elegance? 

What are Shutter Doors? 

So, knowing that they’re a worthwhile investment and a great addition to any home, what are the benefits of door shutters? 

Privacy and Security

A great benefit of incorporating shutter doors into your home is that they will add another layer of privacy and security without compromising on the much beloved natural light that shutters allow to enter. Many worry that shutters could block out light, but if anything, door shutters can optimise the amount of light that enters a room. This is because our shutters have adjustable slats, allowing you to be selective with the amount of light that you want entering in your home. You can easily alter the angles of the slats to block the view from outside, proving very beneficial if your home is rather close to your neighbours, or for your patio doors in your dining areas to separate your living and eating areas. They are also great in the aid of noise reduction, helping to create a quieter and more peaceful environment without having to invest in soundproof wall panels or cladding. 

Energy Efficiency 

Another benefit that may not spring to mind straight away when thinking about shutter doors is that they can actually be very energy efficient. In the colder months of winter, door shutters act as an added layer of insulation, trapping heat in rooms and blocking any cold drafts travelling through your home. This increased insulation can lead to significant energy savings by reducing the need for extra heating, having a trickle effect through lowering your energy consumption to decreasing your utility bills. So, not only are they stylish, but they’re also cost-effective!

Aesthetic Appeal 

French and patio doors are a fabulous enhancement to any home, and shutters are a great way to effortlessly upgrade their style. Handcrafted and made with the utmost precision and care, our plantation shutters for patio doors are made to measure. Full height styles are popular and can either be fitted inside your window reveal so you can fold the panels back into the reveal, or outside the reveal so your shutters fold back against your wall. You can also opt for tracked wooden shutters, the ideal solution if you are planning on opening and closing your French doors regularly.
