Take a look at your windows. Think about what you want them to do. Strange question we know!
However - stick with us a minute. At night you want the room dark and you want to stop prying eyes looking into your home. So, you buy curtains you can close over - perfect!
However, what happens in the daytime when you pull back the curtains? Your room is completely exposed and you have no privacy when people walk past and peer in your windows.
"Not so fast" I hear you say! I have net curtains on my windows so nobody can see in!
Well, that’s great we say. However, just as they can’t see in, you can’t see out. Sure, there’s some light coming into the room, but it’s kind of like trying to look through a cloud – don’t you think? You know something is on the other side, but it’s grey and murky and you’re not quite sure what’s through that opaque fabric...that's where half height shutters come in.
