Will Shutters make my room dark?

One of the greatest features of shutters is the flexibility of light control at any time. We are often asked if shutters will make rooms darker throughout the day when installed. The simple answer is that shutters can offer complete darkness, full light and anywhere in between. In fact shutters are one of the most versatile solutions for your windows when it comes to window dressings. Our shutters can offer complete blackout and privacy when needed, but also allow for fine adjustments to get the light levels in your home exactly how you want them.

Fully opened and fine adjustments

If required you can simply fully open your shutters to achieve maximum light in your rooms throughout the day. You could also open just one panel and keep one closed to keep some of the room in shade. As well as opening and closing the panels you have full flexibility and control of the louvres that run up and down the shutters. Using the tilt rod allows you to quickly and easily adjust the level of light entering, in much the same way you would with standard blinds.

Creating a black out effect

For those who are specifically looking for the ability to create darkness shutters are also fantastic at achieving this. Whether it is for sleeping, the children’s bedroom or required for cinema and games rooms, shutters can achieve maximum darkness better than any other solution. With curtains and blinds you often find that gaps are left around the edges and manage to stream in through the middle. With made to measure shutters we are ensuring that they are designed and installed millimetre perfect no matter what shape and style of window recess they are being fitted to.

The best of both worlds

Ultimately shutters are a fantastic solution for darkness and light whenever needed. The fact that they are also fully customisable in design and colour means that no matter what your needs are, it can be achieved with our shutters. From fully blacked out rooms to open bright rooms on a summer day, a few quick adjustments of your new shutters is all it takes!
