The direction a window faces and its sun exposure will determine how little
or how much natural light will enter a room.
A window that faces north will let in a consistent
light. It will also be the coldest exposure and with
40% of a home’s heat escaping through the windows,
all considerations should be taken to choose an energy-efficient
window treatment. Wood shutters do just that; they are
energy efficient and prevent the cold from coming in
and your room loosing heat.
A window that faces south receives the most sun throughout
the year. Although warm natural light is always welcomed,
it will affect the interiors of your room, such as flooring
and furniture. Custom wood shutters will allow you to
control the amount of lighting that enters your room
while still offering protection against heat and UV rays.
A window that faces east will bring a bright, warm
light into a room, especially in the morning. Wood Shutters
will allow you to enjoy that early cup of coffee by welcoming
the warm light and at the same time preventing your space
from warming up too quickly.
A window that faces west brings in the hottest light.
The best consideration for a window treatment in a west
facing window should be a wood shutter as it provides
great light control, ventilation and is energy efficient.
