Title graphic for Shuttertec blog about kitchen shutters

The kitchen truly is the heart of the home. It is where your loved ones come together to cook, eat, and socialise. And in a pre and post COVID world, it is also where we entertain our guests. So, it’s understandable that you want your kitchen to look amazing.

Kitchen shutters are the perfect window dressing for kitchens. They offer all the practicality you will need and are durable enough for even the busiest of family kitchens. Plus, they look stylish and sleek!

In this blog, we’re going to help you choose the best shutters for your kitchen.

What Are The Benefits Of Having Kitchen Shutters?

When dressing your kitchen windows – shutters make the most sense. Fabric window dressings, such as curtains and most blinds will hold onto stains, odours, and moisture. And they’re not the easiest of window dressings to keep clean.

Every kitchen needs a sturdy and easily maintained window dressing. And shutters are exactly that! They are made using strong, high-quality materials, meaning they will withstand the wear and tear of a family home. Plus, they don’t need removing to be cleaned. They can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Shutters also offer privacy as and when you need it. Their versatility means you can have the privacy you need whilst still being able to admire the view from your kitchen. Kitchen shutters enable you to control the light and are excellent for insulating your home during the winter.

Waterproof Shutters

Waterproof shutters are ideal in rooms where high moisture, condensation or humidity may be a problem – such as a bathroom, kitchen, indoor pool, gym, or spa. Rather than using wood, waterproof shutters are made using a high-quality, durable, and lightweight plastic known as ABS.

These stylish and practical shutters will be perfect for your kitchen.

Café Style Shutters

Café style shutters are the best shutters for providing privacy whilst flooding your home with plenty of natural light – this makes café style shutters a popular choice for kitchens and dining rooms.

Plus, because café-style shutters only cover the lower half of your window, they are usually cheaper than other types of shutters. Our café style shutters can be made using the waterproof ABS material.

Tier On Tier Shutters

Tier on tier shutters are the very best type of shutter for versatility. They feature a panel on the top of your window and a panel on the bottom of your window, which work independently from each other.

You can choose to have them all open to let the light in, choose to have them all closed for complete privacy and keep the light out, or you can have one panel closed and other open.

For example, you could keep the bottom closed to maintain privacy but open the top panel to let the light flood in. Our tier on tier shutters can be made using the waterproof ABS material.
