Shutter style for your home: Canterbury Window Coverings

There’s more to shutters than meets the eye. They’re the only statement piece with the ability to increase the energy efficiency and comfort of your house, while elegantly improving your privacy. They can enhance even the top high-performance and passive house.

Interior and exterior shutters are an elegant solution to make your home more energy efficient by passively controlling the environment of your home. They give you the ability to control the light and heat that enters and exits your home, as well as shielding it from high winds, ensuring your comfort year-round. Exterior shutters are also an excellent option to enlarge living spaces and make open areas more usable.

Shutters are a stylish way to protect your privacy throughout the day. Their adaptability means that rooms that require both light and privacy can have both as needed. The leading choice is the Norman Santa Fe range, offering bespoke quality and specifically designed for New Zealand’s climate conditions. Chris Swart and his team at Canterbury Window Coverings, in partnership with Lohrey Blinds & Shutters, have been supplying and installing this energy efficient solution for kiwis over the past 77 years.

“One solution doesn’t fit all. Internal and external shutters are versatile and can be customised for each and every window or door opening,” says Chris.

“We provide quotes, working alongside architects, designing shutters to be seamlessly integrated into the building process, saving time and effort for all involved. With unique solutions that integrate flawlessly into your lifestyle, and your home. For example, exterior shutters are ideal for a passive house, ensuring is doesn’t overheat on hot days.”

With an extensive range of styles, our modern shutters and custom-made solutions can add to any homes aesthetic, regardless of architectural style. Turning an ordinary home into a statement with great curb-appeal.
