Why Conservatory Shutters Over Blinds?
Shutters aren’t just superior to blinds, they trump curtains too. In fact, we’ve already written a blog that details the merits of shutters (click here
to learn more). If you’re in a bit of a hurry though, we’re happy to list a few of the reasons shutters should be added to your must-have list:
- Year-round heat regulation
- Kerb appeal
- Light and privacy management
- Ease of measuring and fitting (more on this shortly)
Which Shutter Style Works Best for Conservatories?
This will very much depend on your needs. For the utmost privacy, our Full Height
conservatory shutters will cover the entirety of your windows. Conversely, our Café Style
shutters will cover only part of the window (usually halfway, but this is up to you). This allows you to combine brightness with ground level privacy. For the best of both worlds, why not opt for our Tier-on-tier
shutters? They cover the entire window, while the top and bottom sections can be controlled separately. Whatever choice you make, shutters will add a style and cosiness to your favourite space.
Are Conservatory Shutters Easy to Measure and Fit?
If you have ever put flatpack furniture together, DIY shutters should prove to be no issue. Just like measuring and fitting for shutters in other rooms, we make things as simple as possible for you. Our easy-to-follow measuring and installing guides
can be downloaded here and will make things a breeze. Worried that you won’t have the necessary kit? All you’ll need is a hammer, screwdriver, drill, and spirit level!
What About Shutter Materials?
We offer three materials, each one perfect for conservatory shutters. Our Pure Hardwood
shutters are made entirely from high quality Paulownia and are available in all styles and colours. For conservatories more prone to condensation, our PVC Shutters
are 100% waterproof and come in four different neutral colours. For the best of both worlds, the Affordable Hybrawood
range might be what you’re looking for. Made from a combination of hardwood frames & stiles, the slats are constructed from polyvinyl with an integral aluminium core for durability. They are available in Full Height, Café Style, and 13 different colours. Unsure about colours? Click below to order some free samples!
What About Light Management?
When thinking about your conservatory makeover ideas it is always important to consider the practicalities too. Generally, a conservatory is designed for brightness. As such, this should be at the forefront of your mind when decorating. To let more light in, we recommend going for Café Style or Tier-on-tier shutters. It is also worth considering slat sizes as the larger the slat, the more light will flow into the room.
How Much Do Conservatory Shutters Cost?
That is the million-dollar question isn’t it? Luckily, shutters won’t cost you the world, so there’s no need to put your conservatory interior ideas on hold. Not only are shutters incredibly affordable, but they’re also a great investment that will last you for years to come. To learn more about pricing, click here
