Lake District shutters

Visitors come from far and wide to visit the beautiful county of Cumbria, and it is easy to see why. Dominated by the stunning natural landscape of the Lake District, the area is a haven for millions of tourists who flock here each year to experience the remote, wild beauty of the county’s lakes, forests and castles.

With vast open spaces like Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and a wealth of ancient Roman remains, like the mighty Hadrian’s Wall, many visitors fall in love with the area and often decide to stay for good. It is, however, the wildness and sparseness of Cumbria, combined with the harsh Northern climate, which can make living here something of a challenge. Residents will need to consider arming their windows with shutters if they want to keep the most extreme weather from infiltrating the home.

The charm of living in a Cumbrian town is often in the friendly nature of the local community, particularly in a small market town. Popular tourist towns like Kendal, which is often called The Gateway to the Lakes, and Penrith, are surrounded by rural spaces and low lying hills, which do nothing to ward off the harsh weather and extreme temperature changes of the Northern climate. Even those living in a large city, like Carlisle, will need to think carefully about how they protect and insulate their windows.

The Cumbrian climate can be managed more effectively by introducing sturdy shutters to the windows of a home. Unlike traditional curtains, contemporary shutters provide the extra security and protection against extreme weather. Plantation shutters are becoming more popular in modern homes, not only as practical necessities, but also as stylish, decorative features of the interior. Once fitted, shutters have a timeless quality and the strength to give reliable performance for many years to come.
