Window shutters are among the most stylish and practical window coverings available. However, if you are on a tight budget, you may be hesitant to invest in them. After all, shutters are so sleek and well-designed, it’s easy to assume that they’re also expensive. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. Here at Shutter World, we believe that everyone should be able to afford shutters, regardless of their budgetary limits. Buying and maintaining a set of shutters doesn’t have to break the bank. In fact, we’ve come up with a list of tips that will help you make sure that buying and maintaining a set of shutters is cost-effective.
1. Choose the right range
We offer several ranges of shutters here at Shutter World. Some are more luxurious and high-value, such as our Sumatra range of white teak, authentic wooden shutters. However, others are designed to be highly affordable. The Antigua range has our lowest-cost shutters. Antigua shutters are made of MDF instead of high-end, luxurious wood, which means that they are far cheaper to buy. Nonetheless, they still possess the same style and sense of refinement as our white teak shutters. By choosing Antigua shutters, you can stay within budget without compromising on style.
2. Talk to us before buying
In addition to supplying shutters, we also install them. This allows us to ensure that they fit your windows perfectly. Why not talk to us about your budgetary constraints before you purchase your shutters and have them installed? We can give you a quote so you can make a final, informed choice about whether you can afford a particular set of shutters or not. We may even be able to accommodate your limits and offer you suggestions and advice to help you stay on-budget.
3. Prolong the life of your shutters by painting them
You may be concerned that you will need to replace your shutters if they get chipped or start to show their age. Obviously, you want to avoid replacing your shutters too often, because doing so isn’t cost-effective. However, painting and repainting your shutters every few years can completely hide their age and make them look as good as new. By prolonging the life of your shutters in this manner, you can save money in the long-run.
