New Year New Shutters

A very happy New Year from us here at Shutters Manchester!

It’s the start of a new year, a new decade, and with plenty of resolutions here and there, you may be thinking about interior transformations, decorating revamp projects you’d like to make a start on this year. For many of us, funds might be a little tighter this month, but that shouldn’t stop you considering plantation shutters for your windows, they are a great way of brightening up a gloomy January whilst also saving you a few coins throughout the year!

Christmas is over and your home is probably feeling a little empty now that the decorations are being taken down. It’s the perfect time of year to give your home a little lift and start off a new year with a brand-new set of window shutters! Adding a stylist new feature to your home is a fabulous to start the year and an otherwise dreary January. With a variety of colours to choose from, plantation shutters can turn your windows into a bold, statement feature, no matter the size or shape of your windows.

We all know January for being grey and dull weather wise, but there’s no need to bring this negative energy into your home! Shutters are an excellent way of giving you control over the light levels in your home, maximising the use of your windows. Louvred shutters can be adjusted to suit your needs allowing as much light in as possible, when opened. A great way of beating any new year slumps!

Whilst it’s cold and miserable outside, your shutters will act as a barrier against your windows, stopping any chilly drafts from getting into your home whilst also stopping your heating from getting out. Closing them in the evenings will help keep you warm and cosy, but also stop you reaching for that thermostat quite so much, so your heating bill won’t go through the roof. What more could you ask for?

Mass family gatherings, food for the thousands, dirty dishes that reach the ceiling, following the Christmas madness you want to avoid any more pressures and stresses when it comes to housework. Looking after your plantation shutters is incredibly easy, all they really need is a quick dust with a damp cloth when you can, keeping them shiny and smart looking for years to come. No chemicals are needed, and minimum effort is required – a welcome change of pace, so that your new year can start as smoothly as possible.

We definitely think you should start your new year with a little treat for yourself and your home! Keep the gloomy months at bay with a fun pop of colour and a nice increase in light.
