Shutters are usually the most architectural type of window covering ideas. Shutters can be made from wood or a wood composite material and are integrated into the woodwork of a space. Shutters provide excellent light and air control when the louvers are positioned accordingly. A drawback of a window shade is that when fully lowered, it often blocks the exchange of air, and light cannot be directed. Shutters, a popular choice in hot climates, can keep direct sunlight out without impeding airflow.
