Reasons to Choose Shutters Over Other Window Coverings

Are you in the market for new home window treatments? If so, then shutters are probably on your list of considerations, due to their many qualities. Read on to learn some of the reasons why you should choose shutters over other window coverings.

Attractive Appearance

When it comes to windows coverings, few options can lend your home the structured elegance that interior shutters can. The smooth lines, beautiful craftsmanship, and solid structure of shutters can add a luxurious feel to your home. Furthermore, shutters do not go out of style, so you can install them with the comfort of knowing that they will add an attractive element to your interiors for years to come. Finally, shutters can be simpler to clean and maintain than other window coverings, meaning that they are easier to keep in great condition.

Ease of Use

When it comes to window treatments, 2 important considerations are accessibility and safety. Because of their simple control systems, shutters are simple for anyone to use, including children and seniors. Also, they do not pose a choking hazard to children and pets because they do not have any hanging cords or pulleys.

Energy Efficiency

While adding any type of covering to your windows can improve your home’s energy efficiency, shutters can do a superior job compared to many other options. Because shutters are opaque, no light streams through them when they are in a closed state, which helps to prevent heat gain in the summer. Also, because the slats can be shut tightly, this can help stop heat loss through your windows in the winter. Another characteristic of shutters that makes them more efficient than other window coverings is their solid structure, which helps prevent heat from getting in and out of your home.

We had cellular shades installed and it was just want we needed! Finally, we can block out the sun that is just merciless this time of year. I can tell the quality is superb, and install was painless. We had originally ordered light filtering shades and then discovered that it still made the rooms too bright. Bay Home made it easy and affordable to reorder the replacements. They really want us to enjoy our home. Thank you Bay Home & Windows!

Years ago we bought custom wood shutters throughout our home from Bay Home & Window. We had a great experience and our shutters still look great. Recently we remodeled our closet and had them back to create a custom closet. I had no idea how much we could love a closet. Everyone at Bay Home and Window was easy to work with they helped us figure out the design and utilized every inch of our odd sized space. From appointment scheduling to installation everyone was very professional and exceeded our expectations.
