Image of a good set of quality Outdoor Window ShuttersAre you thinking about getting a set of outdoor window shutters for your home? It’s a great way of adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to an otherwise dull and uncomfortable living space. Not only does it boost the aesthetic value of your home but adds to its total value as well. Outdoor blinds provide much needed protection against the elements and help to make your home energy efficient by keeping living areas cool during summer and warm during winter. This obviously translates to reduced electricity expenses which makes it a good and worthwhile investment as any.

Now that you’ve got a good idea about what external window shutters can do for you, the question remains – how do you choose the right set of outdoor shutters for your home? Well to answer that, you’ll have to delve into the number of options available in the market. Let’s get right to it!

Your options in external windows shutters

Just like most other window treatments out there (outdoor window awnings, window blinds, etc), outdoor shutters are available in different types of material such as traditional hardwood, vinyl and modern aluminium. Choose one depending on your budget, climate and aesthetic preferences. Installation and maintenance can also differ depending on the type of shutters you choose.

Wooden outdoor shutters

If you’re looking to go the traditional route then you can’t go wrong with wooden outdoor window shutters. They’ve been around for centuries and offer proven protection against the elements far superior to regular drapes and curtains. These shutters are installed on hinges that can be adjusted to close or open completely. It’s relatively easy to operate and ideal for most traditional homes. Wooden shutters add a touch of elegance and can be painted to match your home interior.

Vinyl outdoor shutters

If you’re looking for a more affordable option for your window shutters then you might want to consider the ones that are made from vinyl. These tend to be lighter and retain  their colour much longer which makes them an ideal decorative piece. Vinyl shutters are also easier to install; simple enough for home owners to do themselves. Vinyl outdoor window shutters with cut outs are generally available and fabricated as a single piece for maximum durability. These shutters are quite attractive and though it might look cheap up close, these shutters are more resistant to moisture making it ideal for humid locations with frequent rainfall all year round.

Aluminium window shutters

While not exactly cheap, nothing comes close to aluminium shutters in terms of durability and sheer protection. Once limited to commercial and business applications, aluminium shutters have become increasingly popular among home owners as it had proven to be extremely cost-effective. These shutters are tough; strong enough to withstand storms and they require hardly any maintenance.

You had great options for my windows, some were straight forward however others were trickier (openings not centred, taps in the way etc). This is my second home I have put shutters in, wouldn't settle for anything else OR any other company!
