Shutters North East – Adding Style and Security to Your Home

Many homeowners go above and beyond to protect their homes with CCTV, burglar alarms, double-glazed windows, but window shutters are also a worthwhile investment that boosts both style and security. LBD Studio helped the founders of Shutters north east form a name and proposition that reflects their bespoke design, quality materials and time-honed craftsmanship.

Window Shutters

Window shutters can enhance the look of your home and add value to it. They are easy to maintain and long-lasting. They are also energy-efficient and provide a barrier between hot and cold air. They reduce the usage of heating or air conditioning and lower your electricity bills. They are available in a wide range of styles and colours.

LBD Studio helped the founders of this bespoke shutter company form their name and proposition, one that embraced heritage & artisanal craft. The result is a brand that stands out in the market place, offering customers an inspiring design and a premium product.

Plantation Shutters

A popular choice for many homes, plantation shutters are stylish and practical adding an extra layer of insulation to the window. They can be made to measure for even the most awkward shaped windows. They are easy to clean and can resist chipping, making them a great choice for areas with moisture such as bathrooms & kitchens. They can also be made from a range of different materials, colours and styles to suit your home’s interiors.

White shutters are available in a variety of louver sizes to fit your light requirements, when closed they offer privacy and warmth and can be opened fully to let in the sunlight. They can be created in a cafe style to only cover the bottom half of the window or in a tier on tier style where the top shutters can be folded back to allow the maximum amount of sunlight to enter the room.

Wood plantation shutters can add a touch of elegance to your home, and they can be customised in a variety of colours to match the décor of any room. They are also a good option for people with allergies to traditional fabrics.

Interior Shutters

Interior shutters are a classic window treatment that can add beauty and functionality to any room in your home. They’re available in a variety of colors and styles, making them a versatile option for almost any decorating style. They’re also very low maintenance. They’re easy to wipe down and don’t require a lot of special cleaning solutions.

They can be trimmed with different frame designs, and can fit over or around existing trim. They are also a great choice for older homes, including Cape Cods and ramblers. They work well with traditional decor but can also complement contemporary or country styles. They’re durable, insulating and offer excellent light control. Upgrades like cloth tapes, routeless slats and motorization can take your shutters to the next level. They’re a smart choice for children’s rooms, bathrooms and high traffic areas. They’re also great for energy efficiency, keeping cold air out during the winter and hot summer sun out.

External Shutters

The classic design of exterior shutters complements Cape Cod and rambler-style homes. The combination of superb insulation and light control makes them ideal window treatments for Northeastern homes that lack natural sunlight. They can be opened for unobstructed views, and the shutter louvers are easily adjusted for a mix of warm sunlight and filtered light. While they are not as functional as they once were, extended stiles (called “horns”) and shutter tails are available for historic houses to meet preservation guidelines and maintain architectural accuracy.

Exterior shutters also offer a significant energy-saving benefit by blocking chilly winter breezes and hot summer sun from entering the home. They insulate windows more effectively than blinds and curtains, but the effectiveness depends on the type of material used. Polywood shutters, for example, resist damage from humidity and extreme temperatures, making them a smart investment for homeowners in the northeast. In fact, you may be able to cut your energy costs dramatically by opening and closing your shutters at the appropriate times.
