Looking for a stylish blackout window dressing but don’t fancy blinds? Our Blackout Shutters could be perfect for you! Our innovative blackout shutters have their own built-in channel sitting behind the frame that snugly holds a blackout blind.

This eliminates almost all of the light that tries to sneak in and keeps the room near pitch-black no matter what time of day it is.

Explore the benefits of blackout shutters here:

Block Out Light (Obviously!)

Most window dressings, including curtains and most types of blinds, allow light to “bleed in”, even when closed. Some blinds can offer total blackout and are one of the more popular types of blackout window dressings.

However, if you are looking for the elegance, quality and durability that comes with shutters, you have the option of Blackout Shutters!

Blackout shutters will make a stylish and practical addition to any bedroom. A dark environment is the best way to guarantee a full night of undisturbed sleep.

Darkness allows you to relax and signals that it is time for your mind and body to switch off. Disturbances such as light and noise can alter your body clock and disrupt your sleeping pattern.

Keep Noise Out

Similarly, blackout shutters are great at blocking out noise pollution. The high-quality wooden shutters paired with the built-in blackout blind effectively block out noise.

This is ideal for children’s or babies’ rooms, or if you live on a busy road or in a noisy area. It is also ideal for those who work night shifts and need to get undisturbed sleep during the day.

Control Room Temperature

Shutters are an excellent window dressing for controlling room temperature, and blackout shutters are no different.

During the winter months, blackout shutters will add a layer of protection to insulate the room from any drafts that try to sneak in through the window. They will also prevent heat from escaping the room.

During the stuffy summer months, shutters allow cool air to circulate your home whilst blocking out the direct sunlight.

Protect Interiors From Sun Damage

Did you know that sunlight, both direct and indirect, can damage your home interiors? Including your fabric and wooden interiors and artwork. Up to 40% of all interior fading is caused by UV rays.

You can tilt your shutters to direct the sunlight away from your interiors, or you can use the blind, which sits snugly behind the shutter to completely block out the direct sunlight.

Provide Privacy

Shutters offer plenty of privacy, making them ideal for ground floor rooms, or bedrooms that are overlooked. Unlike blackout blinds, such as roller blinds, shutters can be tilted to allow you to control the privacy levels. You don’t have to shut them altogether.

So, you can keep the light pouring in whilst maintaining privacy. Or you can blackout the room altogether.

Fantastic Combination Of Stylish AND Practical

Blackout shutters, like all shutters, are incredibly stylish and tasteful. They complement a variety of home decors, from the traditional and cosy to the sleek and modern. At Shuttertec, our blackout shutters are available in 15 different colours!

Aside from adding a touch of style to your home, blackout shutters also offer plenty of practicality. Covering the entirety of the window, our blackout shutters allow you to seamlessly control the light, privacy, and noise with a simple turn of the louvres. And for complete darkness, simply close the attached blind.   

Durable

Shutters, including blackout shutters, are one of the most durable and long-lasting window dressings on the market. They are made using high-quality materials. Plus, they never go out of style, so you won’t have to change them when you decide to redecorate your home.

Easy To Maintain

Unlike curtains and blinds, shutters are easy to maintain. They don’t need taking down or removing to clean them. Simply wipe them over with a duster or a damp cloth! Shutters don’t hold onto odours or stains, making them great for kitchens and dining rooms.

Ideal For Home Offices (And Cinema Rooms)

if you are lucky enough to have a cinema room (or games room) in your home, blackout shutters are a necessary addition.

Similarly, blackout shutters are ideal for home offices, where glare can make it difficult to see your computer screen. They also allow you to easily control the light when you are on a video call.
