louvre size of a shutter has both aesthetic and functional properties.
Bayside offers three sizes of louvres in 2.5 inch, 3.5 inch, and 4.5
When choosing louvre size, buyers should consider light,
view, window size, style of home, furnishing, and personal preference.
Here are the advantages and disadvantages of the different louvre sizes.
The 2.5 inch louvre by design reduces the light while
in the open position because of the close proximity to each louvre being
only 2 inches apart. For this same reason, they also help to minimize
the outside view, which can be very effective when the view isn't particularly
pleasant. These louvres are also said to have a Mediterranean look.
The 3.5 inch louvre is by far the most popular size.
This is probably due to its great versatility. When fully open, they
afford a beautiful view while allowing ample natural light into the
house. Being mid-sized also tends to make these louvres compatible with
both large and small windows. They are especially well sized for angle-arched
and sunburst style windows.
The 4.5 inch louvre is now doubt "the view window"
louvre. Its size maximizes the potential to bring the outdoors inside
while still providing darkness and privacy when needed. With these louvres,
the larger the opening, notably height, the better.
