What are the benefits of DIY window shutters?

The windows are the soul of a room, they set the tone for the rest of the aesthetic in the home but they’re often overlooked. When you’re setting up a room, you should put a lot of consideration into the look and feel of your windows.

It goes beyond simply choosing a colour, or a style, it’s about tying everything together. Your windows can be a focal point, or they can blend in, but either way – let’s talk about how DIY shutters can be your windows’ best friend!

Shutters Are Very Affordable
DIY plantation shutters are very affordable, especially when you consider their quality. How is this possible? Easy! By measuring and installing your own shutters, you can save a lot of money on the total cost.

Shutters Are Easy to Install
We’ve refined the installation process to make it as straightforward and easy as possible. If you have a few DIY projects under your belt already, you’ll have absolutely no problem installing your new DIY window shutters. If you’ve never taken on a project around the house before, you’ll still have an easy time mounting these shutters to your windows with the help of our step-by-step guides and video tutorials.



Shutters Are Easy to Clean
Different types of blinds and curtains can be a pain to clean, especially when you have to take them off the wall to clean them. DIY shutters, on the other hand, are very easy to clean and to maintain, especially if you keep on top of dusting them by giving them a quick wipe every couple of weeks (or more, if you like!). Many people clean their shutters less often than that, too, and they’ll still look as good as new for years to come! Why not read our guide on Top tips for shutter maintenance.

Shutters Give You Functionality
With many types of window coverings, you’re fairly limited in terms of how much you can adjust them. With DIY window shutters, however, your options are almost unlimited. You can have them wide open, leaving your windows fully exposed, or you can close the shutter panels and adjust the slats to let in exactly how much light or airflow that you’d like. DIY Shutters act like a dimmer switch, allowing you to adjust the light throughout the day.
