With summer quickly speeding towards us, warmer, lighter, and longer days are soon to be on the horizon. This means it’s more imperative than ever that you ensure your windows have adequate dressing to keep light and heat out as and when you require. Not doing so will make your house stuffy and uncomfortable, as opposed to the cool haven it should be when you retreat indoors for a welcome break.
The team here at Shutter World have researched and compiled a list of the top shutter trends for summer 2020, so your house can be cool in more ways than one.
2020 is the year of experimenting with patterns and colours on your interior shutters. A pop of bright red can easily make a white living room sing, as can geometrically-printed shutters in an otherwise bland bathroom. You can also experiment with colour to create a mood in your home – warmer colours make for a fun, youthful room, while cooler tones are great if you want to create a calming ambience.
When you think of where people typically install plantation shutters, it’s usually in one of three rooms: the living room, the kitchen, or the bathroom. However, 2020 is the year that’s set to change, and summer is the perfect season to implement those changes. Putting shutters on your bedroom windows makes it easier to control the temperature and light in there, making them an ideal choice for those that love to retreat to their bedroom following a day out at the beach or park.
With mounting focus on renewable energy and lowering our energy usage in order to protect the environment from further climate damage, there’s no better time than now to invest in heat conservation measures. Shutters are the perfect choice of dressing for your window because they allow a greater level of autonomy over how much heat you let in or out of your room – no more blasting of the air conditioning or heating!
