Different types of shutters
Shutters have been used for hundreds of years and a rumored to have originated in Italy through the roman era. In those years the shutters were mostly installed on the outside of the windows with a fixed louver. This allowed air to flow through the room but while still offering privacy but more importantly controlling the light.
Light = heat. Control the light you are in control of the heat generated by the sun.
Modern shutters tend to be inside the windows with a adjustable louver that allows to control the light and thus controlling the heat. Another added benefit of installing shutters on the inside of the windows is the calming effect that shutters brings with it. This is problay one of the most frequent comments from our clients when they admire thier shutters for the first time
How much of the window you want to cover up is totally down to you , your own taste, limitations in your windows and your current decor scheme. Do you want to cover the whole window or just half of it " cafe style" . How do the wondows open, inwards or outwards? We have a specific tilit and turn shutter. Do you use your garden doors a lot in the summer if so we can make the shutter fold out of the way or offer a sliding rail system. See our shutter oversicht for more infomation
