The kitchen is the heart of your home, where you cook, eat, and bond with your loved ones. That’s why your kitchen must look amazing, especially since it’s also the entertaining hub of your home. Kitchen shutters are perfect for dressing your windows, providing practicality, durability, and style to any kitchen. In this blog, we’ll help you choose the best shutters for your kitchen and discuss their benefits.

Kitchen shutters are the most sensible choice for kitchen window dressings, as fabric dressings tend to absorb stains, odours, and moisture. Shutters are made using strong, high-quality materials that can withstand the wear and tear of a family home and can be easily maintained by simply wiping them clean with a damp cloth.

What Are The Benefits Of Having Kitchen Shutters?

Added Privacy

Though there are several benefits to having shutters in your home, kitchen shutters can offer privacy and allow you to control the light and temperature in your kitchen. If you’re worried about moisture and humidity, then waterproof kitchen window shutters made of ABS plastic are perfect for rooms such as indoor pools, gyms, spas, and kitchens. These shutters are not only practical but stylish as well.

Control The Amount Of Natural Light

For those who love natural light, cafe-style shutters are an excellent choice to provide privacy while still flooding your home with light. Because they only cover the lower half of your window, cafe-style shutters are usually cheaper than other types of shutters.

We at Kitchen Shutters Essex offer a range of high-quality and affordable kitchen shutters, including waterproof shutters and cafe-style shutters made using waterproof ABS material. Contact us today to improve the style and functionality of your kitchen with the best shutters.

What Different Kinds Of Kitchen Window Shutters Are There Available

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 fitted by our expert kitchen shutters Essex team to ensure you have the right shutter for that environment. These waterproof shutters are made using a high-quality, durable, and lightweight plastic known as ABS.

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 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 to provide you with more control over the natural light that you have in the room.

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 the 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 waterproof ABS material.

Full Height Shutters

Full-height shutters are the most popular type of shutters on the market. They cover the whole window whilst still providing versatility.

Full-height shutters cover the entirety of your window and offer privacy control, light control and heat and noise insulation. They are available in 100 colours, five different louvre styles and three tilt rod configurations all with fitting thanks to our experienced Kitchen Shutters Essex team.

Our full-height shutters can be made using waterproof ABS material.
