Window shutters to block out sun are in my opinion are a really good choice for a number of different reasons.
Most window blinds that are designed to block out the sun are either up or down.
When you design window shutters to block out sun you can design your shutters to cover the full height of your windows but you have the option of splitting how the louvres open.
So you can close the top part of the shutter to block out the sun and glare whilst the bottoms louvres can be open to allow light into the room.
If you are thinking about window shutters to block out sun for your bedrooms and you want you bedroom as dark as possible then they are not the best option for blackout.
You could never describe your shutters as blackout, but there is a solution.
Some window shutter suppliers offer a special frame with a blackout blind fitted behind your shutters.
So during the day your bedroom shutter looks the same as the other shutters in your home, but at night time simply lower the blackout blind for almost total blackout.
So if you are looking for window shutters to block out sun, this really is the best solution. For more information https://www.barlowblinds.com/6-most-common-problems-with-window-shutters
