The benefits of shutters are easy to understand – they are more durable than curtains and more stylish than blinds, they are easy to maintain and they do a great job of helping to insulate a room. What has traditionally held shutters back from widespread usage in this country is the cost of having them made and installed. However, this is now changing, thanks to made to measure shutters.
The idea behind made to measure shutters is that they eliminate the need for a trained carpenter or fitter to come to your home and install them, meaning the costs are drastically reduced. Typical installation costs for conventional shutters can be equal to the cost of the shutters themselves, so by choosing a made to measure option you can save as much as 50% on the overall purchase cost.
