Okay, we’ll be honest with you. We combed the internet to find the exact statistics on how many Americans live in an apartment. And, well, we had varying results. So, instead of giving you an inaccurate or outdated figure, we’ll just say this: lots of us love apartment living in the good old US of A.

If you’re one of these many millions, you’ll know that it’s important to make the most out of your living space, especially if your abode is a little on the smaller side. And while we can’t help you decorate your entire place, we can get your windows looking like they’re straight out of an interior design magazine. So, let’s get into it.

Space-Saving Shutters for Apartments

Living in an apartment comes with its own unique opportunities and challenges. They’re usually more cost-effective, and they may even be more secure with their gated entrances and intercom systems. Plus, living up high is cool! However, there’s a bit of an elephant in the undersized room here. Apartments are usually pretty small, so space is precious.

And that’s why shutters for apartments are such a smart move. Plantation shutters are custom-fitted to the exact specifications of your windows, ensuring a perfect fit every time. This means they don’t eat up any unnecessary space. Plus, sitting flush to the window means they don’t protrude out into your home.

More Than a Window Dressing

There’s more to shutters than their elegant, stylish, and space-saving qualities. Much more, in fact:

Light control
With their adjustable slats, you can fine-tune the amount of light that comes into your apartment. So, whether you want a sunny breakfast spot or a cozy reading nook, shutters have you covered.

Privacy, please
If you have neighbors across the way, whether above or below, you’ll want to look after your privacy. Slatted shutters are a great way to let the light in without sacrificing your privacy.

Energy efficiency
Shutters are excellent insulators. They’ll keep the apartment cool in the summer and cozy in winter, saving you on your heating and energy bills.


Find Your Style

One of shutters’ biggest USPs is their versatility. They come in a range of different styles, so no matter your tastes, you’re sure to find the perfect shutters to compliment your apartment’s décor.

  • Full height
    Covering the whole window top to bottom, they’re great for a clean, contemporary look.

  • Café style
    Fitted to bottom half only, café style grants privacy without blocking out natural light.

  • Tier on tier
    The best of both worlds, tier-on-tier shutters have two independent sections on the top and bottom.

  • Solid raised
    Inspired by the shutters of yesteryear, they’re made of solid panels and look perfect in rustic and traditional spaces.
