Wood Window Shutters

Window shutters were initially made of wood but now days most are made out of vinyl or plastic materials. A window shutter is usually a strong and solid window covering, usually consisting simply of a framework of horizontal and vertical rails and louvers. It is fixed within this framework by either screws or fasteners. To operate it one just needs to open the top and close the bottom and it becomes closed. Entrance and exit points for a window are usually indicated by painted brackets on shutters. The brackets indicate where the light enters and exits.Learn more about this at window shutters monmouth.

Shutters first became popular in the western interior plantation homes of America. It was not until later that wood window shutters became popular in the interior, American interior architecture. Some of the first window shutters that became popular were louvers. Louvers could be made out of different woods and could give either a crisp or a warm view of the outside environment.

Today interior shutters are very useful as they serve more than just window shutters. Interior shutters are used for additional security on the windows and doors to add more value to the house and to protect the valuable furniture. As well, interior shutters provide insulation from the hot sun during the hot summer months and provide shade for the windows during the cooler winter months.
