What makes a window shutter?
Every feature in a window shutter is visible at first view. This is for the reason of its simplicity as a amount on the window. A window shutter is the frame of components such as the rail, the slats, and the dividing vertical rod (optional depending on the style of design).
In a window shutter, the rails are the horizontal divisions of the frame above the slats at the top or bottom. You can have a design which has rails in the top, bottom and the center. For the center rail, you can control the slats to open either way up or down depending on what you intend.
Slats are the vertical divisions you’ll find on the window frame. They are in slits of varying numbers depending on the size of the frame and the slats themselves.
Either exterior or interior shutters are good
In any of the design types, you’ll get a great design for your window. Interior shutters are window shutters that are fitted to the window from the inside with hinges at both ends of the window allowing openings inwards from both sides. Interior shutters swing in an inwards direction giving you the access to light, air, and outside view when directed. The louvers or slats can rotate freely when controlled, though some slats are non-rotational. Interior shutters are the common design types many people use for their homes.
Exterior shutters from their names cover from the outside. They are hinged at the sides of the window and can be a swing to close when needed.
