5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Home with Wooden Shutters

Published: September 30, 2022



Shutters can transform your home and give it an instant facelift. Not only will shutters bring life to your house, but they can also preserve the natural beauty of your home, keeping it free of sunlight and dust. Shutters are a great option for people who live in places that get lots of sunlight, like seaside towns or inland hamlets. When it comes to choosing bahama shutters for your home, there are a variety of factors you should consider before making a final decision. However, if you’re not sure where to start, here are five tips that will help you choose the right shutters for your home:

Match the Look and Feel of Your Home

As we have mentioned in the past louvered shutters are some of the most common shutters you will see, Bahama louvered shutters are perhaps one of the most unique shutter styles. They add a little unexpected twist to any home because they open and close horizontally, rather than vertically. It almost creates the appearance of an awning on the coastal homes they adorn.

Paneled shutters whether raised or flat look good on many different types of homes, and most naturally on colonial and craftsman homes. While board and batten shutters fit best with farmhouse and cottage style homes when opting for something different than a louvered shutter.

Protecting Your Property

Wooden exterior shutters when closed are a good way to keep prying eyes away from the interior of your home, deterring unwanted guests from seeing what is inside your home. Exterior shutters also provide an extra layer of protection for your windows from not only prying eyes but potential flying debris, tree limbs or anything else that could come crashing through your windows.

Preserving Natural Light

Louvered shutters in particular can filter out too much light from entering your home when closed. So instead of blocking all light from entering when closed, using louvered shutters will allow you to close them while still preserving some light and fresh air to pass through.

Creating Privacy

Just as a closed shutter can protect the interior of your home and its contents, they can also provide more privacy on ground level windows in high traffic areas. Rooms on the first floor with windows along the road or within direct shot of a neighbors window are great candidates for louvered shutters to help keep out any unwanted attention.
