We love old windows here at Purely Shutters. They’re like little portals to the past, but their higgledy-piggledy shape means they can be a little tricky to dress up. So, with that in mind, we decided to look at all the options and see if we can find the right choice for your charming windows.
Blinds for Old Windows
Blinds offer a modern touch to your windows, with a variety of styles and colours to choose from. However, when it comes to old windows, finding the perfect fit can be a bit of a puzzle. Period windows often have non-standard sizes or quirky shapes, making blinds a challenging fit.
And while they offer good light control, blinds often lack the robustness needed for long-term use, especially in a house with wonky windows.
Curtains bring a traditional, cosy feel to a room, and there’s no limit to the patterns and fabrics you can choose from. They’re great for adding a soft touch to your interiors and excellent for creating a near-blackout effect. This makes them ideal for those lazy weekend lie-ins.
However, curtains can also overwhelm smaller or uniquely shaped old windows. They also require more maintenance and don’t offer as much flexibility in terms of light control as other options.
Shutters: Tailor-Made for Old Windows
Now, onto our pick of the litter: shutters. At Purely Shutters, we understand the nuances of old windows. Our specialists meticulously measure your windows to ensure a perfect fit, regardless of their age or architectural quirks. We even cater to special shapes, ensuring that every window, no matter how unconventional, gets its perfect match.
Our shutters aren’t just about fitting in; they’re also about standing out. Crafted with care, they complement your window’s original character while adding to the home’s narrative.
Don’t worry about wear and tear either because they’re robust and built to withstand the rigours of daily life. This means that once you invest in shutters, you’re set for years to come.
Our shutters are perfect for insulation and light control too. They keep your home cosy in winter and cool in summer, all while providing you with the flexibility to adjust light and privacy. And let’s not forget, they’re super easy to maintain – a quick wipe-down and you’re done.
