At A Shade Above Window Fashions, we believe that the number of reasons to love interior shutters is nearly endless, but we’ve narrowed them down to six top reasons to invest in hardwood shutters in 2022. Interior shutters add value, unmatched character, and style to any room in your home.
We have handcrafted our shutters using tried and true techniques in Charlotte, NC since 1993 and would love to share with you why interior shutters are an excellent addition to your home.
Shutters are the only window treatment that increases the value of your home. Once installed, they are considered a permanent fixture, and potential buyers are willing to pay more for a house with shutters already installed. Interior shutters also increase your home’s exterior experience by providing a consistent appearance to the outside from all windows. This is great for homes with HOA guidelines or homeowners who simply want an exquisite curb appeal.
Interior shutters are easy to clean and maintain. Shutters are an excellent choice for those who suffer from allergies as they don’t attract or hold onto dust the way fabric window coverings do. Simply wipe the slats with a soft cloth to remove dust and debris. Genuine hardwood cannot be cleaned with wet methods, but you should condition genuine wood louvers with high-quality wood oil from time to time to help keep them looking lustrous.
The louvers of shutters afford you total light control and privacy. Simply tilt the louvers to the desired position to enjoy natural light while also maintaining the privacy of your home. You can also swing your shutters open to enjoy an unobstructed view.
Another one of the perks of shutters is the many customization options available to you. You can select from three louver widths, split tilt, hidden rear tilt, or divider rails. We recommend slimmer louvers for more contemporary decor and wider louvers for a classic style. You can also choose from eight hardware finishes, including brushed nickel and chrome, to complement any interior design.
Your home’s energy efficiency will increase after you’ve installed shutters. Since shutters are mounted directly inside the window frame, there are fewer gaps for unwanted warm or cold air to seep through. Close the louvers all the way to enjoy protection from the midday sun and damaging UV rays.
You’ll enjoy a timeless aesthetic with interior shutters. Many window treatment fads come and go, but shutters have stood up to the test of time. Interiors shutters won’t be going out of style anytime soon, if ever. You can also layer your shutters with custom drapery for unique appeal and the ability to change up the look of your windows whenever you’d like to.
