We speak to Andrew Cook, Managing Director of Just Shutters, who gives us his guide to beautiful shutters. 

Andrew Cook founded Just Shutters South West in 2011 after discovering the fantastic benefits of Plantation Shutters and wanting to share his passion with customers locally. Over the past six years Andrew has built an unsurpassed reputation for quality and service across Devon and Cornwall and shares with us his top reasons to choose shutters for your home…

“What’s more, shutters add value to your home at resale and save you money on your energy bills…’


Look at the elegant, sleek, timeless lines of these stunning shutters and allow yourself to imagine them in your home… where would you have them? What colour or style would you choose?


Consider the practical benefits of shutters, They don’t warp, bleach or fade; they are easy to maintain and wipe clean, and are child safe, with no trip hazards or pull cords. They allow light in without the glare, offer privacy, heat insulation and energy efficiency (over and above blinds or curtains). They are also perfect for moist and humid environments such as kitchens and bathrooms.

Privacy without the nets

Although net curtains should be banished to the 1970s, many of us still resort to them as most curtain and blind solutions don’t offer us light and privacy at the same time. Not so with shutters, however – you can let the sunshine in whilst keeping prying eyes out!

Bye bye allergens

Shutters don’t hold dust, mites, mildews, spores and allergens the way fabrics and untreated woods do. They are perfect for those with allergies and asthma, who are trying to reduce the pollutants held in fabrics.

No more laundry!

Ok, so you might still have to wash your clothes, but as for your window dressings – they will be as fresh as a daisy! The occasional rub with an ostrich feather and shutters are as good as new.

Long-term value

Just Shutters offers a lifetime guarantee on all its shutters. What’s more, shutters add value to your home at resale and save you money on your energy bills, improving energy efficiency and reducing heat loss through your windows by up to 60%.

So, these are just some of the reasons to choose shutters – why not give the Just Shutters team a call and see what they can do for your home?
