Benefits of Having Shutters in Leicester

Shutters not only look good but they add value to your home. Because they are energy efficient, they will save you money on your heating bill and will add to the resale value of the house. Shutters keep the heat in and the cold out. They are the most efficient way to ensure your home is comfortable for you and your family.

Keep the Warmth In

In Leicester, you’re probably going to be more used to the cold than the sun, which is why it’s so important to get shutters that keep the warmth inside. Shutters keep the heat in because they add a layer of insulation to your windows. When you close the shutters, this adds a protective barrier between you and the cold. Keeping you cosy and saving you money.

Maintain your Privacy

Shutters are the most effective way of keeping your home private. Keep the light in your house and prying eyes away. Just close the shutters and the world is shut outside, so you can enjoy your evening.

At Barlow Blinds, we offer remote-controlled shutters, so you can maintain your privacy without having to get up from the sofa. They also allow you to let outside light into your bedroom on a lazy Sunday morning without leaving your bed. But what about if you want to keep the sunlight out of your bedroom?

Keep the Light Out in the Mornings

Sometimes, in the summer especially, the early sunrise can wake you up before your alarm does. Losing sleep isn’t going to make anyone happy. It can make your kids cranky and put everyone in a bad mood. 

The best way to keep the light out in the morning is shutters combined with our blackout blinds. This combination allows everyone to get the right amount of sleep they need and make sure everyone’s happy. 

These are just some of the benefits you can get from having window shutters in Leicester. If these sound like benefits you can’t miss out on, then how do you pick the right shutters for you and your home?

How to Find your Perfect Window Shutters in Leicester

Step 1 –

Choose your style. We offer shutters that cover the entire window or just the bottom section of the window.

Step 2 –

Pick the shutter size. There are 3 vane widths to choose from 63mm, 76mm, 89mm. The wider the shutters are apart, means more light enters your room when the shutters are open.

Step 3 – 

How do you want to open and close your shutters? The first choice is a central tilt rod on the front of the shutters. The other option has no visible rod and you twist the shutters to open or close them.

Step 4 –

You can choose full height shutters, or each panel of the shutters can be split into a different section. This allows you to close different sections of shutters that cover the same window. Letting you maintain your privacy while still letting light into your home.

Step 5 –

Pick the colour. It’s that simple. Choose the colour shutters you want for your home’s interior and then all that is left is the installation…
