Our team at Blinds America has been working in the window treatment business for over 30 years, and we have seen various options wax and wane in popularity during that time. In the past, shutters somewhat fell to the wayside as far as window treatments were concerned, with many people only knowing them as decorative elements to add to their home’s exterior. Today, however, shutters are experiencing something of a comeback, and our team has put together this article to go over some of the reasons why.
- Privacy. To start with, shutters are an excellent choice for protecting your privacy. You can close the shutters’ slats entirely, or angle them to allow light in while also preventing strangers from seeing into your home, all while enjoying continued airflow around the slats for maximum comfort.
- Light Control. One of the key purposes of any window treatment is light control, and shutters fulfill this purpose magnificently. You can position the slats and the shutters themselves in a variety of ways to adjust the amount of light in your space to the exact level that you prefer.
- Durability. Another reason why more people are choosing shutters these days is that they are by far the most durable option when it comes to window treatments. Our team uses only the highest quality materials in our shutters to ensure that you get the long-term solutions that you need.
- Ease of Maintenance. A fourth advantage that shutters have over other window treatments, and another reason why they are enjoying an upswing in popularity, is that they are easier to clean. Instead of having to take down yards of cloth and run it through your laundry, you can instead simply run a damp cloth along the slats to remove dirt and grime.
