You’ll need to make countless decisions when renovating, maintaining, or building your home. One of the most important is selecting a window furnishing that compliments your property’s design, suits your lifestyle and lasts for decades.
An upgrade of your shutters can make a significant difference in the final look and feel of your home. Increasing in popularity in Australia, timber window shutters encapsulate an aesthetic like no other, creating a timeless feel.
Composed of high-quality Paulownia wood, they are light and robust with a uniform grain, making them a durable and cost-effective means of improving your space without compromising durability as their resilient structure prevents warping.
What are the benefits of timber window shutters?
There are several kinds of blinds, curtains, shutters, and screens, many of which could suit, but timber window shutters can be considered the ultimate window furnishing. Here are 7 reasons your home and lifestyle could benefit from our timber shutters.
- Classy in design
First and foremost, timber shutters look terrific and can enhance the aesthetics of any space. They add charm and an elegant style to the design of any home and especially suit older properties such as villas, bungalows and heritage apartments.
Empire Window Furnishings’ shutters are available in a wide range of sizes, options and colours and are customisable. This attractive alternative to traditional blinds creates a stunning ambience specifically designed for you can help turn your house to a home.
- Added insulation
Whether too hot or too cold, the Australian climate can be unpredictable and extreme. Our high-quality window shutters contain thermal properties that assist in regulating the temperature within your home by providing extra insulation.
The shutters fit together seamlessly, providing a much-needed barrier against the heat and cold while keeping you comfortable year-round.
- Controlling entering light
The Australian sun can be fierce. Empire Window Furnishings’ shutters are cleverly manufactured and installed so that the resident controls the amount of sun filtering into the home—whether you’re letting it all in during cold winter days or blocking it out entirely in summer.
While blocking the sun in summer, the shutters can continue to allow airflow into your home, keeping you cool on those hot days when positioned appropriately.
One of the best features of timber window shutters is their versatility. Available in various stains and colours, we have options to suit any space, with louvres available in 63mm, 89mm and 114mm sizes. Depending on your design preferences, they can be installed inside and outside your home. With these shutters, you can also add curtains or blinds to your home’s interior for further insulation and light control, depending on what is prioritised.
- Long lasting quality
Updating your home’s window furnishings can be a significant investment and improve your property’s value.
Our timber shutters are built to last for generations, using durable hardwood specifically chosen to withstand Australia’s extreme conditions. Empire Window Furnishings’ shutters won’t warp, discolour or crack with a five-year guarantee. They also include high-quality componentry resistant to breaking down so that your shutters function years from now as they do on installation day.
- Low maintenance
Timber shutters are designed to ensure minimal effort is required to maintain them. With shutters that can be easily tilted, an occasional dust and wipe down with a damp cloth is sufficient in providing they are clean and dust-free as often as possible. This can also be considered cost-efficient as there is no need for hefty cleaning bills.
- Environmentally friendly
Sourcing timber can strain the environment, especially if unsustainable materials that aren’t biodegradable are continuously used. Our shutters are made of sustainably sourced, eco-friendly and biodegradable materials, making them the perfect choice for you and the environment; it’s a win-win.
