Are You Trying To Decide Between Shutters and Curtains?

Shutters v.s. Curtains, it’s a tough choice we know, and we don’t envy you for having to choose! A lot of the clients we work with faced the same unknowns, so we’re hoping this article can help you make a smart, informed decision you’ll love for the years to come.

Naturally, there are benefits to installing either shutters or curtains (lists below), however one benefit we have to highlight upfront is energy efficiency. Shutters are designed to keep heat in on cold nights and keep heat out during our smouldering Queensland summers. Even if you have wall and roof insulation, high-quality air-conditioning units, double-glazed windows and door seals, installing shutters will save you significant power in Queensland’s extremes. You can read more about this here.

We just wanted to highlight this upfront, as energy efficiency is a benefit shutters offer that curtains don’t. So let’s get into it, with:

Shutters V.S. Curtains, What Are The Pros And Cons?

Advantages Of Curtains:

Formality: Curtains can be more formal than other options, and in Australia, carry a sense of Victorian or ballroom nostalgia. They’re a good option for a formal room but you may need to consider if you are ever going to change furniture, if so then be very careful when investing in high-end curtains.
Installation Cost: Curtains come in cheap, to expensive options depending on their material and level of tailoring that you need. Cheap curtains are cheaper to install than shutters, most higher-end curtains and drapes can cost more to install than shutters.
Flexibility: If you have a flair for interior design, you might like to change your curtains to suit the seasons. This is not something most of us do, but changing curtains is cheaper than changing shutters.

Disadvantages Of Curtains:

Durability: This is one of the biggest downfalls of curtains, they can quickly fade, especially when exposed to our harsh Queensland sun. Even heavy-duty curtains are prone to fading and even tearing if you’ve got an active household. They’re fabric, so naturally, they’re far less lasting than shutters.
Maintenance: If you’re serious about health or have allergies in your family, you will need to clean your curtains regularly. They trap and keep dirt and dust, and this leads to a multitude of allergy issues.

Advantages Of Shutters:

Style: Shutters are famous for being timeless, regardless of your furniture, the year or season. Shutters are used in 5-star resorts all over the world for their look and feel, and are the first choice in countries like Spain and Italy who share similar climates to us. You can see some timeless shutter designs here.
Longevity: Shutters are remarkably durable, they can be installed permanently on your windows. EziLux’s PolyShield Shutters come with a 25-year manufacturing, finish and installation warranty. Shutters are by far the best long-term option.
Insulation: Shutters are fantastic insulators, especially up here in Queensland. They are far better than curtains or even blinds when it comes to insulation, and this means lower power bills.
Maintenance: Shutters require little maintenance. Now and then you may need to use a wet rag to wipe away any dust, but that’s all you will need to do. Quality shutters like EziLux PolyShield Shutters have a coating that is dust, water, scratch and stain resistant.
Cost: Shutters are incredibly cost-effective due to their long-term durability, the ability to suit almost every piece of furniture and low maintenance.

Disadvantages Of Shutters:
Formality: While shutters come in different styles and textures like wood to perfectly compliment most periods and furniture styles, if you do have a special Victorian style room shutters may not suit as well as curtain or blinds. Speak with an Ezilux consultant to see which works best for your room!

The Choice Is Yours!

Ultimately, while shutters provide significantly more benefits, have a timeless design and remarkable warranties like our 25-year PolyShield warranty, the decision comes down to a combination of upfront cost and personal preference. We hope this article has helped, if you would like to know more please just get in touch with our friendly team.
