Perhaps now is the time to think about upgrading your window treatments to low maintenance shutters. Curtains used to be the only option and they served their purpose, but now they just seem to cause problems. Dust mites love to breed in them, resulting in allergies which can affect breathing, particularly in the young and the elderly.
No one has time these days to be constantly washing or taking curtains to the dry cleaners and – let’s face it – they actually look rather dated. Perhaps your property is overlooked or on a busy street where passersby can see into your room – you may think your only options are either net curtains or blinds which keep out a huge amount of light, but this is not the case.
Low Maintenance Shutters – Options
The choice is amazing and you will see from the S:CRAFT website that there are styles of low maintenance shutters to suit any window, regardless of shape, size or privacy requirements. For example:
- Full Height Shutters with louvres or solid panels –
Perfect for any window, including large ones, where total light and privacy control is required
- Café Style Shutters –
Trendy and smart and ideal for a terraced property on a busy street, both for light and privacy control without covering the whole window.
- Tier-on-Tier –
Similar to Full Height Shutters, but the panel is split into two sections which operate independently, giving total flexibility and control.
- Bay Window and Special Shaped Shutters –
Self-explanatory and stunningly beautiful on any window which is part of a rooms special features, such as ovals, arches and bay windows.
- Track and Door Shutters –
Ideal for large areas of glass such as patio doors. Also great as room dividers, screens in pool areas and for wardrobes
- Conservatory and Skylight Shutters –
Notoriously difficult areas to dress, but not so with shutters that are made-to-measure to exactly match your living space.
Buy wisely for bathrooms and kitchens
The choice is endless and with so many colours and materials to choose from your décor will not be compromised, nor will your family’s health as they are incredibly easy to maintain and keep clean and dust-free.
You will also find that prices vary depending on the style and quality of wood that you choose, but remember to buy wisely for bathrooms and kitchens – perhaps the ABS range of Java Shutters is best as they are completely waterproof.
How To Easily Clean Your Shutters
There are several quick and easy ways to keep your shutters pristine. One is to just run the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner over them and then wipe down with a damp cloth, (no detergent is necessary). Another cleaning method which is becoming more and more popular, is the 100% ozone friendly compressed air, which we use to clean our computer keyboards. Your shutters, when professionally made and installed, will be virtually maintenance free, giving you time to enjoy yourself instead of constantly working. So sit back and relax, enjoying the stunning feature your low maintenance shutters have made to your home.
