Living spaces require a number of furnishings to feel like a home. Couches, beds, rugs — these are some of the furnishings people often model in a room. There is another part of a room which needs attention: window fixtures.

Specifically, the focus is on window shades. Without them, rooms are less conformable to live in. This is especially true in the bedroom. Most people don’t want to wake up with the sun every morning. Some days are meant to be for sleeping in. This is especially true for the weekend. Let’s learn about why plantation shutters are the perfect solution as a window shade.

Heightened Elegance

Installing any window fixture improves the quality of a room. This is true for blinds and drapes. However, plantation shutters add a heightened sense of elegance to a window fixture. This is made apparent simply by the appearance of these shutters.

Many blinds are made of plastic. Plastic blinds generally don’t have an elegant feel. On the other hand, plantation shutters are made of materials such as vinyl, poly-core, and exotic woods. We offer shutters made from these and other materials.

Increase Home Value

The lack of window fixtures clearly cannot increases the value of a house. On that contrary, windows lacking in fixtures don’t give as good of an impression of a house. Because plantation shutters look elegant, they can increase the value of a house. This is especially true if the shutters are made from quality material such as the shutters we install.

The bathroom and the kitchen are two of the most important rooms to focus on when increasing home value. If the kitchen has large windows there is an opportunity to install plantation shutters in the room. Doing so will elevate the ambiance of the kitchen and any room the shutters are installed in.

Additional Insulation

Having plantation shutters can add an extra layer of insulation to a room. This is especially true when the shutters are closed. Hot summers often require greater use of air conditioning. Closed shutters keep sunlight out of a room which helps keep the room cooler.

Saving energy means saving money. A few dollars each month might not seem like much. However, a homeowner can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars over many years by saving energy.
