If you’re like many homeowners, you want something to cover the windows to prevent people from seeing inside and to help control the elements, such as sunlight and airflow. Window shutters are an excellent solution because they do provide some protection from heat and sun. The summer months can be brutal on your house, especially the carpeting and any furnishings that get touched by the sunlight streaming into your home. A shutter system can be closed when the sunlight is strong, which prevents you from having faded furniture and carpeting.
Window shutters can also add privacy to your home. Having them installed in all rooms of the house allows you to shut the shutters whenever you desire. You can actually leave them closed at all times and open the louvre slats whenever you want to have more sunlight or airflow in the house. However, they can be closed when you’re sleeping or when you’re not home, which prevents neighbours and would-be intruders from seeing what you have inside or watching you while you’re sleeping or relaxing. The shutter system is also designed to look and operate neatly, allowing you to have something unique and beautiful while opening and closing them as you see fit.
SP Screens has window shutters available for purchase and installation. If you’re trying to cover the windows for privacy, sunlight control, and airflow control, plantation shutters are the perfect solution for you. They have louvre blades that can be adjusted however you see fit, allowing you to open the windows beyond and let in airflow while still protecting your furnishings. You can also close them completely to block out some outside noise and keep the sun out of your house, which can prevent the home from getting too warm and protect your furniture from too much sunlight exposure, which can lead to fading.
