Windows are an important element in your home. Therefore, the shutters chosen to enhance them are just as important. The windows do their job of offering a great view, while keeping the elements out. The shutters do the same thing – it’s a team effort in element and light control. Most have heard the studies on how light effects mood. The amount of sunlight your windows allow through on any given day has a huge impact on how you feel! There are reasons people get special lighting experts to create an atmosphere in a restaurant or on the stage in the theater. The magic is in the light.
Let your shutters help with versatility and control of both sunshine and heat. With two door shutter and middle rails you have four adjustable sets of louvers per window. By a simple movement of the push rod you can have the louvers opened to admire the view, or closed for moments of privacy. Savor the first moments of daylight in the morning, or enjoy the soft, dusky light of sunset…it’s up to you.
There are two types of shutters: interior and exterior.
Interior shutters are easy to adjust from the inside for privacy. They offer options for how much of the window they cover including café, full height and tier-on-tier. You can also get plantation shutters and custom shutters built to your exact specifications.
Exterior window shutters come in four basic types: paneled, louvered, board and batton, and Bermuda. They are available in a variety of materials including MDF (medium density fiber), vinyl, synthetic foam, faux wood and wood. Basswood is the most popular wood for shutters.
Exterior and interior shutters come in a range of costs, colors and styles, and with the options for decorative hardware, can be personalized for any style home.
