Interior shutters are becoming a very popular choice as a window treatment. They offer significant benefits to offices and homes, and provide a level of security, privacy, and elegance.
Installed interior shutters are unlike other window treatments that at some point will need replacement. Shutters are installed as a permanent addition to the structure, and will immediately increase the resale value of the home.
Ultimate Light Penetration Control
An interior shutter has the ability to block out significantly more light than drapery, blinds, shades, and other window covering types. By rotating the shutter louvers into varying angles, the exterior light can be filtered or blocked out nearly completely.
The installation of interior shutters offers a quick solution to minimizing undesired allergens that can easily get caught in the fabrics of draperies and shades. Due to its solid surface, the shutter is easy to maintain, and keep clean with a simple dusting or vacuuming. In addition, they can block out much of the cold that penetrates through the window in the winter, and the heat of the summer. Because of that, they can significantly lower monthly heating and cooling bills.
Interior shutters are highly resistant to ultraviolet rays, meaning they will never fade like curtains, shades or drapes. Built to be durable, interior shutters will withstand daily use in either a commercial or residential environment.
Fashionable Style and Elegance
The shutters continue to remain fashionable. Their trending fashion of style and elegance has lasted for decades, and because they are crafted in a variety of stain and paint colors, the shutters can be easily matched with a room’s existing decor. Even though they appear to be an upscale option, they are extremely affordable, and significantly lower in price than a designer drapery.
Interior shutters are designed to be installed in a variety of ways including hinged from the outside, the inside, and even in an archway. They are manufactured to be durable, and can be incorporated in a variety of decors from traditional, to modern, and even Victorian and transitional designs. Shutters can be found in modern homes, and those in a craftsman design.
These types of shutters are extremely safe, in that they do not contain cords or strings like draperies and blinds, which are known to be hazardous to children. Because of their strength and durability, they have an extended life expectancy that far exceeds nearly all other kinds of window treatments.
