Why employing professionals to install shutters is important
6 December, 2022
As a simple yet effective way of adding both convenience and character to your interior spaces, shutters are becoming an increasingly popular solution for homeowners across Essex – especially those who are seeking a sleek and modern alternative to curtains and fabric blinds.
Finding the perfect fit in terms of size and aesthetic can unlock a plethora of benefits which can help to enhance your privacy, insulate your home better, and compliment the surrounding space. So, one major question remains – should you bring in a professional to install your shutters in Essex?
Before we consider the installation of shutters and how best to approach your interior project, what exactly are the benefits of shutters compared with curtains and other blinds?
For one thing, shutters are considered the most neutral in terms of their structure and the way they sit against the window. With adjustable movements which allow you to tailor to amount of light and/or privacy in the room at any set time, shutters are elegant and simple to use – and they can be finished in many different ways according to the look of your space.
In addition, shutters can also add an extra layer of sound proofing to your home or interior space when closed, can help to hold the heat inside your home, and can be used to create different ambience depending on the mood and the time of year.
However, to benefit from all of these advantages, you need to make sure that your shutters fit your window to perfection – which is where installation comes in.
Unlike curtains and other window covering solutions, shutters are fitted to perfection on the inside of each window frame in your specified room or throughout the home – covering the window right to the very edge. While curtains allow some room for error with regards to the way they sit over and across the window, with the stretch of fabric covering the entire window and more, shutters are designed to sit neatly within the window frame which means the fit needs to be perfectly placed to maximise the benefits.
A professional installation company will not only ensure the fit is perfect, but they will work with you to create a set of shutters which compliment the surrounding space both in fit and in aesthetic finish and detailing. From colour to placement, the width of each individual shutter and the way that the shutters are adjusted, matching the finish with your home and your individual needs is something that only a professional company can help with – with Feran the leading window coverings, curtains, and shutters specialist team in Essex.
