What is the Difference Between Shutters and Blinds?

  1. 1. What is the Difference Between Shutters and Blinds?<br />Shutters are shutters and blinds are blinds. True, but what is the difference? Let’s compare each function. Shutters can be made for both inside the home and for exterior doors and windows. Blinds are generally only used indoors.The Australian summer climate is often the time when home owners contemplate whether or not to invest in blinds. There are several blinds manufactures in Australia. For instance, if you live in Brisbane, an online Google search for ‘blinds Brisbane’ will produce a wide selection of companies that give advice on the right type of blind for your circumstances. There are several kinds of blinds, such as Venetian blinds, roller blinds and vertical blinds. There are many more designs to suit all tastes and pockets.To get back to the difference—blinds are installed in a window instead of curtains, although some home owners opt for both at the same time, purely for decorative purposes. The slats on blinds are usually of a lighter material than shutters, which tend to be thicker and wider, the reason being that shutters are generally used outdoors and need to be sturdier to stand up to the elements. When a home is for sale, shutters are considered fixture, but blinds, like curtains can be removed.Each slat in blinds is normally tied together with a string material, which is pulled in order to open and close the blinds. On the other hand, shutters are pulled open or close and generally swing in an out. The slats in blinds are made to overlap, which means that some light might still penetrate a room. Shutters are better for keeping out the light.Shutters are more expensive that blinds. This is because they are made of stronger and thicker material. Shutters, being heavier, are not an ideal choice for inside a home. Blinds are generally the obvious option for the interior windows of homes and offices. This doesn’t entirely mean that shutters aren’t used inside a home. In fact, they are becoming popular installations in designer homes. Shutter panels and doors function well in bedrooms where there are walk-in wardrobes and can be used in the place of cupboard doors. They allow for privacy and can be opened or closed whenever the need arises. A search for ‘shutters Brisbane’ will provide you with hours of information that will help you decide whether shutters of blinds will be best for your home and which designs will add quality to your rooms.<br /><br />
