If you wish to smarten up your home and are looking for a stylish yet practical window dressing solution, shutters could be just what you need.
Shutters are more durable than blinds, with the added bonus of giving your home that much-needed extra insulation for the cold months, while being an elegant complement to your home interior or exterior (depending on whether you wish to place them internally or externally).
Just like making any other major purchase decision for your home, choosing the right shutters requires a lot of forethought. You need to consider both the practical and the aesthetic aspects of the purchase, and the wide range of shutter styles on offer could make this look like a daunting endeavour.
Not if you follow these three simple steps.
1. Decide which windows you want to adorn with shutters.
If you are looking to dress your bedroom windows, you may find that external shutters are the best choice for you as they are long-lasting and provide extra insulation and privacy.
Your dining room or living room windows are likely to look best with internal shutters as these create a focal point in your room, blending in with your room’s interior. Internal shutters are easy to maintain, which also makes them ideal for moisture-rich rooms, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
2. Don’t rely on DYI when measuring for shutters.
Knowing the exact shape, form and dimensions of the windows you wish to order shutters for is critical. However, as simple as taking measurements seems, there is more to it than meets the eye so we would not recommend doing it yourself. Being a complex product, shutters fit differently into different window types, and there is also a range of choices that are not available across the range.
So instead of risking it, why not book a visit from one of GC Family’s shutter specialists? They will guide you through choosing the correct shutters for your home so that you don’t end up with shutters that don’t match or fit your window type.
3. Get creative with the design.
Once the shutter specialists have advised you of the perfect shutter type for your home, it is time to select the shutter colours and design.
The Goldcrest Family have a wide range of shutter designs on offer, including full height, café style and tier on tier, in addition to a rich selection of colours.
Our shutter specialists are on hand to help you choose the right shutters for your windows and select the style that is the best addition to your home.
