Why You Should Install Shutters in Your Kitchen
If you’re looking for a stylish, low maintenance option for window treatments in the kitchen, aluminium plantation shutters should definitely be at the top of your list for a multitude of reasons.
While blinds or curtains may be a simple and more affordable solution, they often retain smell and dampness, making them less ideal for the kitchen. Aluminium shutters on the other hand are versatile, durable and require little to no maintenance upon installation. Whether you have an open plan or alley style kitchen, shutters are the perfect window treatment for any size.
Why you should use shutters in your kitchen instead of drapery
Aluminium plantation shutters are much easier to maintain than other window hangings. In a space that gets dirty quickly, drapery is tedious to keep clean and requires machine washing or dry cleaning. With shutters, a simple wet cloth will suffice when cleaning up mess.
Types of shutters to use in your kitchen
Choosing the right shutter for your kitchen is incredibly important. While there are many options such as natural timber or PVC on the market, Guardian Screens & Shutters offer two stand out options that are perfect to use on kitchen windows.
Thermopoly shutters are not only an attractive shutter solution, but they also embrace the latest technology, making them highly efficient and easy to use. With thermopoly shutters, you can achieve the timber look without the risk of termite or water damage. Easy to clean, thermopoly shutters are perfect for water and grease splash zone areas, such as above the sink or oven.
Aluminium shutters are a premium product which can last a lifetime with proper care. They are strong, durable and easy to clean. Guardian’s lockable aluminium shutters are the only shutter on the market certified to Australian security screen standards, eliminating the need for other security barriers. A flyscreen can also be installed to keep insects and other critters and pests out of the kitchen.
Both options are incredibly effective at filtering light, especially in a large space. If you want to create shade without fully blocking out all the light in your kitchen, shutters are the perfect solution.
Curtains and blinds can get dingey and dirty quickly, but plantation shutters remain clean and crisp. In a space where cooking is the primary function, shutters give you control over ventilation of smells within the kitchen. This means shooing out foul odours or smoke clouds is much easier with shutters in place.
