Revealing the Shutters from the Old Days

A window shutter is a window covering with a frame of vertical stiles and horizontal rails. It is used to control the amount of sunlight, to provide privacy, to protect against weather elements, and to enhance the aesthetics of a building. There are two types of shutters: interior and exterior. Interior shutters, as their name suggests, are shutters used inside the home or building. They are hinged on either side of the window and swing inwards to let light enter. Exterior shutters are used outside the structure and also hinge to either side of the window, but they swing closed when needed.

Shutters have been used since the early 1500s. Most homes in Tudor, England had shutters that were originally designed to protect windows on the outside and were built for the interior of the home.

These shutters were made of solid wooden boards, since they were used to cover the lower half of the window opening. Glass was expensive during that time, so only the upper part of the shutter had a glass pane. Shutters were opened to allow light and fresh air to enter. A bar would usually be placed across the panels for security.

In the 1700s,
shutters clearwater
had double glass windows in the opening and were able to cover the full height of the opening. Most shutters were installed on the inside, because most buildings were made of stone or masonry with thick walls. Their window opening was too deep to reach out or secure from inside the room.

Later on, during 1873-1901,
shutters sarasota
were installed on the outside of houses that had thinner walls. People could now reach these shutters from the inside.

As years passed, shutters were used as an aesthetic appeal as much as a practical function. They were designed to protect the homes from weather elements. With technological advances like the steam engine, shutters were now as sophisticated as

. Shutter blades, made of narrow horizontal slats, angled to deflect rain and allow light to enter as well provide ventilation. These shutter windows are evident on various Australian historic houses. Australian settlers installed timber shutters in their huts. The shutters were usually hinged on the outside to protect the home from the harsh rays of the sun.
