Estimated reading time 4 minutes

If you’re looking to update your interiors, you might be thinking about installing window shutters in your room. Shutters not only look stunning in every room, but they can bring a number of other advantages, like regulating the temperature of the room and increasing privacy.

Kingswood at Home is the expert when it comes to shutters. We have experience in designing and installing shutters in all sorts of rooms to suit all sorts of interiors and lifestyles. We know that shutters can transform a room and be a huge benefit to your interior.

Below are just some of the advantages of installing shutters in your home.


Shutters are versatile. Kingswood At Home will tailor-make every shutter, so you can have beautiful shutters no matter the size of your room or shape of your window, whether you want them as a centrepiece on a bay window, or to cover a smaller bathroom window.

They also come in a range of different styles colours, and finishes, so you’ll always be able to find the right type of shutter to suit your interior. Shutters are known to blend a range of styles, from traditional period-styling to sleek and modern aesthetics.

Energy Efficient

Shutters can be a real benefit to helping your home to be more energy-efficient. Window shutters will work to regulate the temperature in your home, by stopping it from getting too hot or too cold.

During the summer, they’ll stop your home from overheating, by deflecting the sunlight whilst still allowing some light to shine through. In the winter months, they block out the cold drafts. Shutters will be installed directly against the window frame, creating a seal that stops any chilly drafts from entering your home. Solid shutters are especially good at regulating the temperature of a room, whilst also bringing a traditional period-style look to your home.


Our high-quality shutters are built to last. Whilst some window coverings will degrade over time after exposure to sunlight, dust, and general wear and tear, our shutters are built from durable, long-lasting materials.

Our shutters also come in a range of finishes, including waterproof and wipe-clean, so your shutters will be kept looking pristine no matter what room you need them in.

Better Light Control

Curtains only give us two options for light control – dark or light. But with shutters, you’ll have complete control over how much light enters your room. Shutters are adjustable, so you can modify how much light enters your room, making it brighter or darker.

Tier-on-tier shutters give you the most control, as the sections will open and close independently of each other. So, you can have more or less light, depending on what you need. Tracked shutters can be discreetly tucked away when you want even more light in a room, which makes them great for French doors or even as room dividers.

More Privacy

Shutters allow you to have the windows open and let in plenty of fresh air into your home, whilst still maintaining privacy. Tier-on-tier shutters are perfect for this, as you can keep the lower sections closed whilst keeping the higher sections open, for more fresh air and light.

Shutters can also help to reduce noise from outside, so you can rest in your home with peace and quiet.

Child Safe

Curtains and blinds usually have dangling cords that children can get tangled up in. But shutters work with levers that are attached to the shutters, with nothing reaching down to child height that can cause a danger to your child.

We work with our customers to find the shutters that suit their lifestyle. When you book your free design consultation, we can ensure that child safety is a priority in finding the right option for you.

Boost Property Value

Shutters are known to increase a home’s value. They can also give prospective buyers a nudge when they’re deciding to buy a home, by being an attractive feature that can make your home stand out from the crowd. Thanks to their versatility, they’re popular with many people and able to go with many interiors, so a new buyer will always be able to suit shutters to their tastes.
