Window shutters are a very common type of window covering used in the world. A window shutter is usually a strong and durable window covering made up of a single frame with several horizontal and vertical rails attached. Normally set within this single frame are louvers, slats, fabric, window glass and any other material that may be installed in a frame. Shutters may be either horizontal or vertical. Shuttercraft Henley, Henley-on-Thames is an excellent resource for this. Some newer window shutters are available with a special type of fabric that allows for the louvers to fold when not required.
In recent years there has been an increase in the number of companies offering a variety of different styles of window shutters. Some of the most popular shutter styles include plantation shutters, dado shutter styles, casement window shutters and sliding door shutter styles. Of course there are also many companies offering window shutters with various additional features such as automatic open, adjustable louvers, handrails and more.
There is a huge range of different materials available when it comes to the manufacturing of window shutters. These could include vinyl, wood, aluminum, fiberglass and even plastic. Each of these materials provides a different look and feel to your home and will also add a decorative element to your interior shutters. It is recommended that you purchase solid shutters over those that are manufactured from a composite of materials as solid wood shutters can provide a much better look and can also last much longer than those manufactured from composite materials.
