If you have a converted loft or a room in the roof, you’ll know that finding stylish dormer window treatments is far from simple. Dormer window curtains are fiddly and expensive and usually require specific dormer curtain poles, while blinds tend to be plain and functional. The story is much the same for dressings for skylights or roof windows too.
This is where shutters come into their own.
Made to fit
With loft shutters you get a window treatment that’s made to fit, even if you have a round attic window, or an awkward dormer. What’s more, you can choose from a range of colours to ensure your shutters match perfectly with your attic décor.
Let in the light
Apart from the customised fit, one of the reasons customers love our loft shutters is because they are flexible with light. Where dormer curtains and blinds are either open or shut, shutters let you enjoy the middle ground. You can close them to sleep, you can open them in the morning, but you can also angle the slats to create more ambient light levels, whenever you like.
All-weather window treatment
We all know that attics have a tendency to be swelteringly hot in summer and shiver-inducing in the winter. Believe it or not, shutters can help with this problem too.
As wooden shutters cover the whole window they can reduce draughts and keep in the heat during the cold months. When summer arrives, you can open your window and close the shutters. This stops the sun streaming in, and lets fresh air circulate through the slats. Bliss.
