No other window dressing allows such thorough levels of control: curtains and blinds must either be opened or closed, and even venetian blinds allow a significant amount of light through when closed. But interior shutters can always guarantee strict control over natural light while still ensuring privacy.
Curtains and blinds make it difficult to ventilate your kitchen without compromising your privacy, as they must be opened entirely for air to filter through the window. However, shutters allow you to filter out these odours with ease while maintaining your privacy: you simply need to open the window and tilt the louvers until your kitchen smells fresh and pleasant.
The kitchen is known for being a somewhat messy space. Cooking can produce moisture, smoke, grease, as well as various clingy scents. As such, your kitchen should be decked out with furnishings and fittings that are easy to clean, as well as resistant to dirt and grime.
