An ever-popular design among a large portion of our customer base, the Woodlore is synonymous with resilience, stability and timeless charm.

The lifespan of wood shutters varies depending on a number of factors, such as the quality of the wood, the type of climate the shutters are exposed to, and how well they are maintained.

Generally, high-quality timber shutters that are properly maintained will last for many years. High-quality wood shutters that are composed of hardwoods such as oak or mahogany can last for several decades, while shutters made from softer timbers such as pine or cedar may last around 10-20 years with proper care.

Exposure to moisture, direct sunlight, and extreme temperatures (hot and cold) can cause timber shutters to warp, crack, and fade over time. Routine cleaning and maintenance can help prolong the life of timber shutters. It’s also a good idea to ensure that the shutters are installed according to manufacturer’s instructions and any necessary repairs are made promptly to avoid further damage.

Wooden shutters are effective at blocking out light, but it should be noted that the degree to which they can darken a room will depend on the size of the shutters, type of wood they are composed of, and the level of light that entering the room.

If the timber shutters are correctly installed and fitted to the window, they are able to provide a tight seal that minimises the amount of light that can enter the room. However, If the timber shutters are not small for the window and there are gaps around the edges, some light may still filter through.

The type of timber the shutters are made from can also impact their ability to block out light. For example, if the wood is extremely light or porous, it may allow additional light to enter the room than a darker, denser timber would.

While wooden shutters can certainly help to darken a room, they may not be as effective at doing so as other types of window dressings, such as blackout curtains or shades, which have been purposely designed to block out light.

The decision of whether timber shutters should be lighter or darker than the house depends on your personal taste, the style of your home, and the desired effect you wish to create.

If you wish to establish contrast and make your timber shutters stand out, you can elect to go with a darker colour that contrasts well with the colour of the rest of your house. If your house is light-coloured, you may wish to choose dark shutters to create a bold and dramatic aesthetic. On the other hand, if your home contains a darker palette, you may choose lighter shutters to create a softer and more subtle contrast.

If you desire a more cohesive and harmonious look to your room, choose timber shutters that are the same colour as the house or a similar hue. Doing this will ensure a more unified and make the shutters blend in with the overall look of the house.

Both PVC (polyvinyl chloride) shutters and timber shutters have their own unique pros and cons. The decision to go with PVC or timber depends on various factors such as personal preference, budget, location (of the house), and usage.

PVC shutters are comprised of a synthetic material that is highly resistant to the effects of moisture and humidity, making them a great solution for areas of the home that contain high levels of moisture such as bathrooms and kitchens. PVC shutters are also relatively easy to clean and maintain, and are resistant to cracking, warping, and fading. As well as this, PVC shutters tend to be more affordable than timber shutters, making them more feasible for those on a budget.

Timber shutters add a more natural and traditional aesthetic to the home. They are available in a variety of different wood types, stains, and finishes that are able to seamlessly fit with many different interior styles. Timber shutters also possess impressive insulating qualities, which helps to reduce energy costs. However, timber shutters are also maintenance heavy, requiring ongoing sanding, sealing, and painting to prevent rotting and decay. Once again, how much of this maintenance is required, will depend on the environment to which your shutters are exposed.
