What are aluminium shutters
Just in case you weren’t already tipped off by the name, here’s a quick breakdown for you! Aluminium shutters or shutter blinds are a type of plantation shutter that features horizontal aluminium blades. They operate by rotating the blades to adjust the angle of the shutters, meaning you have full control over how much light is let in, and in which direction it shines. These online shutters can be installed indoors or outdoors, as aluminium is an incredibly durable material.
Now, with all the functional stuff out of the way, let’s get down to all the reasons why aluminium shutters are a great investment.
1. Boost the resale value of your home
Over the years, there have been countless articles suggesting that plantation shutters, particularly ones made from aluminium, can boost the value of your home. ‘Why’ you may ask? Well, that’s because the neat and uniform appearance of these shutters adds curb appeal. Appearances aside, shutters also tick a lot of boxes for home buyers, especially for those who value security, privacy and durability.
2. Easy to clean
Cleaning your indoor or outdoor shutters couldn’t be easier. All you need is a damp cloth to wipe over the blades every now and again, to remove any dust that has settled. To put it simply, you'll save time on the cost of washing drapes or curtains, and it will get your house looking in tip-top shape with minimal effort.

3. Complete light and temperature control
With snug fitting window shutters, you can control how much or how little sunlight enters the room. The blades can be opened a little or a lot in either upward or downward positions, optimal for both heat and light control. And, because all the aluminium components have an insulating air pocket, they keep your home's internal warmth in and unwanted external heat out.
4. Child safe
Even though I'm not planning on having any little Harvey's run around my home anytime soon, I like to know that my window treatments are 100% child safe. Just like all of the other products we sell online, our aluminium shutters are completely safe for both children and pets. You can check out the best blinds for your child’s room here.
Aluminium is often recommended over any other materials such as PVC, timber or other engineered wood products, due to its durable and ductile nature. The material is completely water and fireproof, making aluminium shutters an ideal choice for bathrooms, kitchens or any other room that’s constantly exposed to moisture, steam or splashes.
6. Energy efficient
Modern day indoor and outdoor shutters are incredibly energy efficient. They create an additional layer of insulation over your windows, keeping the air in your home at a comfortable temperature.
