Why Choose To Install Window Shutters

Window shutters are a great idea for your windows and there is an abundance of reasons why. Apart from the fact they look good they also offer lots of other practical benefits.


Window shutters are made to measure your windows perfectly, and this means you won’t have any light sneaking through on days when you want to shut the sun out. They are much easier to clean than blinds or curtains, and once they’ve been installed and fitted perfectly you have streamlined window coverage that looks good from the inside and from the outside.

Insulation for heat and sound

Window shutters can keep your house cool in summer by shutting out that hot sun, especially uncomfortable if some of the rooms in your house are directly in the glare of the sun during the day and early evening. On the other hand, they can also keep you lovely and warm in winter by helping to keep the heat in rather than allowing it to escape through the window.

They look really good

You’ll also find that with window shutters, and their ability to fit any window shape, you have a timeless, classic look for any room in your house. With their wide slats, you can control how much light you want to allow in, you can always settle for a compromise and have some light trickling in rather than just open or shut. That’s the only choice you have with curtains and roller blinds, so window shutters offer a welcome change and added control over light.

Style, colour, aesthetics matter

You’ll find that with our window shutters here at Knight Shades you have a range of different options, so your shutters can fit in with the décor of your home and your personal style. We have basswood or HSPVC, so you have a choice between man-made materials or wood. We also make them in different configurations including tier on tier, full height, track system or café style.

They look gorgeous, and what you have is a fixture and fitting that could significantly add value to your property should you decide to sell in the future.
