Here Are Some Reasons Why Norman Plantation Shutters Make a Great Choice for Your Office Space

Blinds and shutters both are a great option to help block out light in an office space. In many cases, you can use them interchangeably, depending on the size of the window and how much light you need to block out. But, there are some situations where Norman Plantation Shutters are better than blinds. Here are a few good reasons why you should choose Norman plantation shutters over blinds for your office space.

Better Insulators

You’ve probably noticed that shutters keep things cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Not only do they block out harmful UV rays, they also help minimise heat loss during winter months and make your office more comfortable overall. This means lower energy bills!

Control Light Better and Offer More Privacy

Norman Plantation Shutters offer a higher level of light control. You can keep them open or closed, depending on your preference and needs. Since shutters are installed inside your window frame, they can block unwanted light and make your office appear more appealing. Compared to blinds, which create an exposed band of glass at the top of your window, shutters also allow you to preserve as much privacy as possible when opening and closing them by design.

More Secure

Blinds can be lifted up from either side of a window, but shutters are hinged and operate from one side only. Since shutters have less moving parts than blinds, they’re more secure.

Low Cost per Square Foot

If you do a little comparison shopping, you’ll find that Norman shutters Perth are often a cheaper option than blinds. Since it takes less material and time to install a shutter than it does a blind, they tend to be more affordable on a per-square-foot basis. If your office space is large, or if you have multiple office buildings, that can make all the difference when it comes to keeping costs low.

Easier To Clean and Maintain

Keep in mind that blinds can be difficult to clean if they are slatted. That’s because you have to remove them from their support brackets, take off their coverings, and wipe each individual slat. Shutters, on the other hand, can just be wiped with a sponge or cloth. If there is any dirt or grime on them that prevents light from entering your office at certain times of day (or during night), you simply wash them using a spray bottle and some dish soap.

Look good with glass walls/doors

If you’re designing a new office, it can be hard to decide whether blinds or shutters would look better in your space. But if you’re starting from scratch, one thing that can make or break your decision is whether there are any glass walls/doors in your space. Because shutters look great when paired with glass, they can really tie your space together.

As you see, Norman shutters are a better option over blinds for obvious reasons. Go for it! Other products definitely worth checking out are our new pergolas.
