2021 starts with a ‘yes’ to modern style

Shutters are a great way to joosh up your home this new year

2020 was definitely one for the history books.

No one could have imagined just how much time we would have to examine the inside of our homes in the minutest detail. For some of us, it may have been the impetus to start planning some exciting home improvements for the new year.  

Although we would like to accomplish as much as possible, we may still be financially constrained after the festive season. This means that getting more ‘bang for your buck’ should be the mantra driving our quest for home enhancements.

The installation of shutters is a cost-effective and simple way to achieve a modern luxury look for your home. With minimal effort, you can add a touch of elegance and glamour to the plainest space. 

There are three main options when choosing shutters to create a welcoming home environment:

  1. Vinyl

Contemporary vinyl shutters are made from a durable Polyresin and are ideal for all areas, including high moisture and humidity areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms.

Vinyl shutters are energy efficient due to their hollow design and offer a simplified, streamlined option to control the amount of light and noise entering your home. Waterproof and easy to clean, these shutters are a great option for the busy homeowner. You also have the added advantage of a variety of colours to match your interior harmoniously.

  1. Wood

The classic wooden shutter offers an aesthetically appealing solution to privacy and light control. An ideal pairing with natural décor, wooden shutters celebrate the beauty and warmth of traditional timber.

Wooden shutters are perfect as room dividers, internal window and door coverings. They also complement any existing security product, as they are mounted internally and can be useful in turning an unsightly window or door opening into a stylish and beautiful feature.

  1. Aluminium

Multifunctional aluminium shutters offer the ultimate combination of security, light control and privacy, while giving your home décor a sophisticated finish.

Aluminium Light shutters are lockable and provide protection from outdoor elements while Aluminium Security shutters offer multi-lock security and function as a stylish replacement for other security barriers, such as security gates.

Whether you decide to go with wood, vinyl or aluminium, shutters are easy to clean and require very little maintenance. And, with warranty-backed shutters, investing in your home doesn’t have to be a hit and miss affair.

This year, staying home in your beautifully face-lifted house should be more about choice and less about necessity.
