Shutters have been a distinctive feature of French architecture for centuries, serving both functional and aesthetic purposes. Originating in the medieval period, wooden shutters were initially used to provide protection from the elements and enhance security. By the 17th and 18th centuries, shutters became more refined and decorative, reflecting the architectural styles of the time, such as those seen in rural cottages and grand urban townhouses. In the 19th century, shutters became widespread across France, particularly in Provence and other southern regions, where they helped to keep homes cool by blocking out the intense sunlight while still allowing ventilation. Typically made from wood and later metal, shutters were often painted in regional colors, adding to the charm and character of French homes.
