Do Window Shutters Add Value to a Home?
As interior window shutters are classed as a permanent fixture they will help add value to your home.
So long as you install good quality window shutters, made to measure, that suits your home’s appearance, this will help to add value to your home and increase the chances of it being sold, should you want to move in the future.
Do Window Shutters Block Out Light?
With interior shutters you can choose how much and how little light you want entering your home. At Lifestyle Shutters you can also select black out window shutters which are ideal choices for bedrooms and cinema rooms.
This choice is also popular for light sleepers, especially if your children wake you up in the early hours during the summer periods because of the sunshine lighting up their room and waking them up.
Do Window Shutters Block Out Noise?
If you find your children are struggling to sleep because of outside noise, whether it be from cars driving down the road, or people walking past the house talking, internal window shutters are a helpful solution, since they also help by adding a soundproof barrier to your room when they are closed.
Do Window Shutters Insulate?
When bespoke window shutters are shut, they help to insulate your home better than thick curtains.
As an air pocket is created between the window and the window shutters, when the shutters are closed and the louvres are down, this helps to insulate the home by keeping the hot air inside the house.
This will both help you save money on heating, while keeping your children’s bedroom cosy and warm during the winter months.

Window Shutters Children’s Room Decor
One of the main reasons why window shutters are ideal in children’s bedrooms is because of the fact that they are adjustable through the louvres, unlike blinds where they need to be adjusted through strings and cords, therefore making them safer.
Meanwhile, for those of you who have babies and toddlers, you won’t have the problem of kids getting their sticky hands all over the curtains and drapes.
One of the many problems people face with drapery and curtains, is that once they are dirty, they need to be put in the washing on a nice warm, sunny day so that they can dry outside, or they then need to be shoved in the dryer. With wooden window shutters, there is none of that hassle. You just simply need to get a duster or a damp cloth, wipe over them and job done.
