In a March 2013 survey, Harrogate ( north yorkshire ) was voted “the happiest place to live in the UK”. Of course it’s famous for its spa waters, but it also has an occasionally bracing climate! For example, average temperatures in December are 36% lower than in July. You can often feel a shivering windchill, even on the sunniest of winter mornings.
With fuel bills seemingly on an ever-upwards spiral, conserving energy becomes of prime importance. One key way to help achieve this is by installing stylish and effective plantation shutters in your Harrogate home. They help contain more heat in colder times, and can cool things down when the summer sun returns.
About plantation shutters
These shutters are individually made-to-measure to fit any of your windows or doors and are a simple yet stunning way to transform any room. Your wide choice of luxurious styles ranges from contemporary and colourful to traditional and muted. In fact we reckon we can create your shutters in just about any colour you have in mind!
Four valuable benefits of adding shutters to your North Yorkshire home
• Each single panel can be adjusted to temper the amount of light that enters. Terrifically useful both on blazing hot days (temperatures approaching 90F have been recorded in Harrogate) and dazzling low winter sun mornings
• For bedrooms, bathrooms, and other overlooked windows, your plantation shutter panels can be divided into separately controlled sections to retain both natural light and your privacy • When the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest was held at the Harrogate International Centre, the winner was German entrant Nicole with her song entitled “A Little Peace”. We don’t think she was singing about how our superb shutters can help reduce external noise, but you never know!
• If you have ever endured the hassle of having your curtains cleaned and rehung, you’ll love the fact that these plantation shutters are virtually maintenance-free (and a real boon if anyone in your family suffers from dust allergies)
