What does Google Say About Shutters?

The term window shutter includes both interior shutters, used on the inside of a house or building, and exterior shutters, used on the outside of a structure. On some styles of buildings, it is common to have shutters to cover the doors as well as the windows.

A window shutter is a solid and stable window covering usually consisting of a frame of vertical stiles and horizontal rails (top, center, and bottom). Set within this frame can be louvers (both operable or fixed, horizontal or vertical), solid panels, fabric, glass, and almost any other item that can be mounted within a frame. Shutters may be employed for a variety of reasons, including controlling the amount of sunlight that enters a room, to provide privacy, security, to protect against weather or unwanted intrusion or damage and to enhance the aesthetics of a building.

Depending on the application, and the construction of the window frame, shutters can be mounted to fit within the opening or to overlap the opening.

What was the original purpose of shutters?

It is commonly believed that shutters were first used in ancient Greece in order to provide light control, ventilation, and protection in that tropical environment. Those first shutters were likely constructed with fixed louvers made from marble.
