When considering window treatments for the interior of your home, you may be going back and forth between interior shutters or blinds. Both are good choices, but here’s why interior shutters are a better option.
In general, shutters are:
Unique structures that add value to your home
Long-lasting and durable
Child safe, with no cords or chains needed
Attractive and suited to any home style
Basswood shutters can be custom painted or stained
Able to offer excellent light control and ventilation due to separate operation of each section
Advantages of Interior Shutters
Whether you choose wood or poly interior shutters, here are the main reasons you should add them to your home.
Whether your home is modern or traditional, interior shutters can be custom-designed to complement any style. Shutters can add rustic charm, classic elegance or a sleek minimalist touch to your home or office.
Control over daylighting: this is a clear advantage of shutters over blinds, drapes and curtains. You can get a totally dark space by closing them tight, or you can completely open them up and bathe the room in light, or position them somewhere in between to meet your needs.
Interior shutters help block the noise from outdoors, allowing you to enjoy a quieter, more peaceful indoor environment. You can’t get that from blinds.
All you have to do to keep interior shutters clean is dust and wipe them down every once in a while. No washing dusty curtains!
Because interior shutters increase your home’s insulation, you can lower your energy bills and contribute to enhanced energy efficiency.
In short, shutters make a beautiful interior design choice, fitting in with just about any décor and offering a clean, cohesive look throughout your home. They’re easy to clean, easy to operate and easy to integrate into your home’s design.
Here at Wholesale Shutter Company, we use solid basswood for all our wood shutters, which never peel, warp or fade. They’re long-lasting and easy to clean, plus they can easily be re-finished years from now. The same can’t be said about blinds, which are hard to clean, can easily warp and can’t be refinished.
We also offer poly shutters, made of solid poly components, giving you added insulation and more protection from the elements.
