Large windows can be one of the nicest features of a home, but only if you’re taking full advantage of them. Unfortunately, some homeowners are under the misconception that they either need to settle for boring curtains, or spend a fortune on something nicer.

The truth is that you can get shutters for large windows at a very reasonable price, especially if you’re going to install them yourself. Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than you might think!

Here’s what you need to know about indoor shutters for large windows:

Benefits of Wooden Shutters for Large Windows

Temperature control

Large windows can make it a trickier to control the temperature in your home, but shutters help to insulate your rooms and manage temperature. You can block out direct sunlight on a hot and sunny day, while still leaving your window open to let in the fresh air. On a colder day, shutters will help keep more of the warmth inside your home, even with larger windows making it harder to stay warm, shutters help insulate your rooms.


Another great thing about shutters is that they give you full control over privacy from the outside world. If your room is facing a busy street or has foot traffic nearby, you know exactly how uncomfortable it can feel to know that people can see right into your home. With our many styles of shutters, you can simply adjust the slats to ensure that nobody can see in, while still letting the light shine into your home.

Reduce noise

Another downside of having a window that faces the street is all of the noise from vehicles passing by, and anything else that can interrupt your peace and quiet, or your focus while you’re trying to work. The solid nature of shutters help to dampen these annoying sounds, giving you an extra barrier of noise-reduction. Read our blog on how shutter blinds reduce road noise.
