Do Shutters Discolour Over Time?

12:00PM 28 December 2023

A common question we hear at The Shutter Store is, "Do shutters discolour over time?" It's a fair question, especially when you're spending your hard-earned cash. Well, we’re not here to dance around the question, so let’s get right into what you can do to keep your shutters looking good as new for years to come.

Quality and Finish

The likelihood of shutters discolouring largely depends on two key factors: the quality of the shutters and their finish. At The Shutter Store, we pride ourselves on selling only the finest quality shutters, crafted with durable materials in premium finishes. This high standard of manufacturing means our shutters are less prone to the effects of sunlight and aging, both of which commonly cause discolouration.

Maintaining Your shutters

Quality plays a big role in your shutter’s longevity, but so does maintenance. Luckily, taking care of your shutters doesn’t mean endless cleaning. Here are a few of our quick and easy tips to keep yours gleaming:

Dust can cause a dull appearance over time. Regular dusting with a soft cloth will keep your shutters looking spic and span.

Use mild soap and water for cleaning. Harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners can damage the finish and colour.

Avoid Excessive Moisture
Especially for wooden shutters, excessive moisture can lead to warping and discolouration. Ensure that any dampness is promptly wiped off. Or, you could always opt for our waterproof shutters.

UV Protection
If your shutters are exposed to direct sunlight, consider measures like window films to reduce the impact of UV rays. However, our shutters are all coated in UV-protective paint, helping them stand up to the sun.

We understand the importance of long-lasting home décor fixtures. That's why we offer shutters that aren’t just stylish but also built to withstand the test of time. Our shutters are designed to resist discolouration, ensuring that they remain a stunning centrepiece in your home for years to come.
