Are Shutters Still in Style In 2023?

Shutters have been a trendy decor item for the past decade, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon.  

They’re a great way to add personality to any room, from your living room to your bedroom. But are shutters still in style in 2023?  

Here’s everything you need to know about whether these blinds will be a good fit for your home this year: 

Shutters ARE still in style in 2023. 

If you’re thinking of updating your home and want to add some character, shutters might be the way to go. They add colour and texture to a room while also adding privacy, especially when closed.  

Shutters are an affordable way of updating any window in your home without breaking the bank! 

They add a unique architectural element. 

Whether you opt for traditional shutters, plantation shutter blinds, wooden shutters, poly shutters, or custom window shutters, all of these can enhance your space.  

Shutter window treatments go well with traditional home designs and modern interiors. Because they exude classic elegance, they’re perfect for that modern vintage look that’s trendy today.

A crisp, clean look is on the rise. 

While many opt for shutters with a lot of detail and ornamentation, others are going for simpler designs that don’t distract from their homes’ architecture. This can be achieved by choosing a shutter-style with clean lines, like our Plantation Shutters. 

They are energy efficient (a big one for 2023) 

One benefit of shutters which many people are unaware of is that they are incredibly beneficial for thermal insulation and sound levels. 

Did you know that reducing heat loss through your window and doors is one of the best ways to keep your house hot and your energy bills low? It’s true!  

They will help reduce heat loss in the winter months and reduce heat gain in the summer, perfect for the seemingly dramatic temperature changes in the UK lately.  

Shutters can bring a room together. 

Shutters are often thought of as just another bedroom accessory, but they can be used in any room of the house. Shutters can bring a room together and add personality to your home.  

They can also be used to hide an ugly view, add privacy, or block out light. If you have a small space that needs some help, shutters are an easy way to open your room and make it feel bigger. 

They are completely customisable. 

As a homeowner, you have many options when choosing the right type of shutters to install. However, if you’re unsure where to start, most companies have consultants that can provide recommendations based on what would look best for your property.  

Not all homes will benefit from window shutters. Finding the right design, material, and type of shutter to install is essential to reap the most benefits. 

They’re easy to maintain and clean.  

It’s convenient to maintain shutters. No fancy cleaners or special equipment. For those low-maintenance homeowners out there, shutters are KING!  

All you need is a damp cotton or wool cloth. Alternatively, you can also use a vacuum to make the job easier. If the shutters are extra dirty, mix vinegar and water to wipe them down. 

They’re a long-term investment.  

In the short term, your shutters are an excellent investment for yourself. However, they can help you sell your property in the future too! If you maintain them well, these shutters can last the entire lifespan of the property.  

Owners who are planning to sell their homes will also find shutters advantageous because of their resale value. Because owners leave the shutters behind when they move away, they can treat them as furniture and add them to the sale cost. Winner!  

Top Tip: We’d recommend keeping your shutters to a neutral colour scheme as this will allow them to stay timeless and will easily blend in with different home décor.  

They are versatile.  

Unlike curtains, shutters are made to fit your window and can perfectly complement any window shape.   

Shutters are the ideal window dress when you want to have adequate light control and privacy but wish to retain the shape of your window.  

Thanks to the shaped window shutters we offer here at Fraser James Blinds, you can get a made-to-measure shading solution for your unusually shaped windows, including oval, circle, half-moon and triangle windows that highlight their uniqueness.  

Trust us, shaped window shutters are one of the most sought-after products on our ENTIRE website!

To help you decide which shutters are best for you, Fraser James Blinds have created a shutter comparison tool to easily compare and contrast different types of shutters. Simply select the shutter types from the list to compare their features.

Check out this fantastic review from a recent Window Shutters customer:    

“Great service from start to finish. We recently had wooden shutters fitted, and we are really pleased with the results. Getting a quote was really easy and Fraser talked us through a few options. We had to delay fitting and we were pleased that we weren’t made to feel that it was a problem. On the day of fitting, Ned and Tom did a super job. They were both polite, worked hard and cleared up well after the job was finished. I recommend Fraser James Blinds 100 percent.”
