Who are California Shutters?

California Shutters are a UK based company offering made to measure shutters created with the highest quality materials. The shutters are created exactly to your specifications so you can ensure they are the right fit for your windows. They offer extensive guides on measuring and installing which enables them to then offer low prices to you, helping you to create the designer look and feel of shutters in your home at a fraction of the cost! 

What materials do they use?

There are two different materials used to create the shutters. Firstly you may like to consider Faux Wood Shutters. These are made with high quality PVC composite materials and have the same look and functionality as wooden shutters and are even more durable. 

Next we have Wooden Window Shutters. These are created entirely from hardwood making them strong, durable and long lasting. 

What styles are there?

The window shutters are available in a few different options; café style which covers the lower portion of your window, tier on tier which is where there are two separate sections on the top and bottom of the window which can be operated separately from one another and solid raised shutters which are made from a solid panel rather than slats. You could also select your shutters to be at full height which cover the length of the windows.

You can opt for shutters to fit bay windows or casement windows and can specify the room you need them for. The website enables you to browse styles created for the kitchen, living room, bathroom or bedroom so you can be sure to find the right ones for your chosen rooms. 

What's more, you can chose between different colours to ensure they will perfectly compliment the décor of your room. 

What are the benefits of window shutters?

There are so many benefits to adding window shutters to your home,  Firstly they can serve to brighten your home. Plantation shutters for example can vastly increase light flow to your rooms. You can direct external light to wherever you choose and can control glare to your rooms at particular parts of the day.

Shutters are certainly a stylish option, adding a sleek appearance to your rooms. Their appearance is timeless and elegant. This means they won't date and need updating in a few years time making them a cost efficient option. The neat lines and structure of the shutters will perfectly compliment your room giving you the sought after minimalist vibe without appearing too basic.

Shutters are easy to clean requiring just a simple wipe down to keep them free from dust and grime. Curtains on the other hand can harbour dust and dirt as well as odours and require a machine wash at intervals to maintain their appearance and freshness. This is a great option for families and busy households!

Window shutters are also a lot safer than blinds. Unfortunately blind cords pose a real danger to small children who can easy become tangled in them. Shutters don't have any cords which makes them a safe and family friendly option.
