First of all, let us start by noting how lucky you are to have a home in Essex! Essex is a beautiful place to live, work and raise a family. If you are choosing shutters for a home in Essex, you are very lucky!

With its lush rural countryside, bustling seaside pier, beautiful beaches and fascinating history, Essex truly has something for everyone. Plus, London is right on your doorstep – what more could you ask for?

If you are renovating your Essex home, or just refreshing the décor, you may be looking for shutters in Essex. In this blog, we’re going to share our tips to help you choose the very best shutters for your home in Essex.

Consider the Weather When Choosing Shutters For A Home In Essex

Here in Essex, we are blessed with some pretty fantastic weather. In fact, Essex has one of the mildest and driest climates in the whole of the UK. During the summer months, we experience some lovely, sunny weather and hot climates.

However, those warm climates can make our home a little too hot. Everybody knows that trying to sleep when its 25+ degrees is not fun.

When choosing shutters for your Essex home, you should consider the Essex weather. Depending on the type of shutters you choose, when closed, bespoke fitted shutters will block out the direct sunlight. This will keep your home cool during the summer months.

If you want to block out the sunlight but maintain a constant flow of air through your home, Full Height Shutters or Tier on Tier Shutters may be best for you. If you would like shutters to keep your bedroom cool, Blackout Shutters will be perfect.

As well as keeping your home cool during the summer months, shutters will also insulate your home during the winter months when the temperatures plummet. We are in England after all! We may not get inches upon inches of snow like they do up North, but it can certainly be cold at times.

When shutters are tailormade to perfectly fit your window, they will block out any cold draughts and prevent heat from escaping. If you would like shutters that thoroughly insulate your room whilst adding a timeless touch to your home, you may prefer Solid Panel Shutters.

Consider Privacy and Noise Pollution When Choosing Shutters For A Home In Essex

Whether you are nestled in the countryside or dotted right in the heart of a buzzing city centre, there will be times when you will experience noise pollution in Essex.

You may live near a busy train station, or close to a popular bar, or you may just have noisy neighbours; whatever it is, bespoke shutters will significantly reduce the noise levels in your home.

Privacy is also a key factor when choosing shutters for your Essex home. The various styles of shutters offer different levels of privacy. Better yet, these privacy levels can be altered when opening or closing your shutters.

Café style shutters are perfect for kitchens, dining rooms and lounges as they maintain privacy whilst still flooding the room with natural light. Shaped Shutters are also excellent if you would like privacy but have unusually shaped windows.

And Of Course – Always Consider Your Personal Tastes & Preferences!

Bespoke shutters are the perfect final touch to any room in the home. Whether you live in a modern and chic city apartment or a traditional farmhouse, you will find shutters that completely transform your home.

Aside from choosing the style of shutters, you can also choose from a variety of colours, materials, and finishes. For example, if you opted for Full Height Shutters, you could then choose from 5 different louvre styles, 100 colours and 3 different tilt rod configurations.

If you would like shutters in your kitchen or bathroom, you may prefer Faux Wood shutters, which are made from 100% waterproof plastic. They are both practical and stylish!

Shuttertec also offer custom colour shutters! This means, you can choose your colour, right down to the exact shade and brand, and our experts will match your bespoke shutters exactly.

For example, if you’re going for a nature-themed colour scheme with earthy tones and green shades, you may find a colour you love, such as Duck Green by Farrow & Ball. We can then create gorgeous shutters that perfectly match this shade.
