Window coverings not only offer privacy and protection from the elements, but also give your home’s interior some pizzazz. Consider one of these great window coverings to enhance the inside of your home:

  • Wood Shutters

Wood shutters offer a classic and tasteful look for any home. If you have a traditional style and want a window covering that will add an inviting glow, then wood shutters are always a good choice. Window shutters give the house a warm, welcoming feeling, and allow homeowners to easily regulate and block light with a convenient louver design.

  • Blinds

Whether you prefer wood blinds, roller shades, vertical blinds, or Roman shades, blinds are a stylish and affordable choice for any window. Get an exact level of light control with options to close the blind entirely or just part of the way. Blinds are a great alternative for people who would like an economical and practical choice. Fabrics and designs for blinds are incredibly versatile and are the perfect option for kids’ rooms.

  • Plantation Shutters

For a pleasing spin on wood shutters, plantation shutters offer a clean and classic look while providing light protection, insulation, and ventilation. The traditional shutters are simple, which means they will fit well with almost any décor and exude taste and class. These classic window shutters can even add value to your home. A plantation shutter will make you feel like you own a country home even in the middle of the city.

Your window shutters add style to your home and serve an important function. Like every home addition, maintenance is the key to the longevity of your window shutters. Follow these steps to properly maintain your home’s shutters, increasing their performance and appearance.

  • Open And Close Properly. Always open and close your shutters with the tilt-rod or louver to decrease the chances of broken shutters. If you don’t open and close your shutters properly, then you risk damaging or permanently breaking your shutters.
  • Cleaning. Make cleaning a routine part of your window shutter maintenance. Dust your shutters with a dry cloth and use a damp cloth for hard-to-remove smudges and marks. Do not use liquid cleaning products or water because they can damage your wood’s finish or cause warping. Use a toothbrush to eliminate dust and dirt that collects in the corners of your shutters.
  • Routine Inspection. Routinely inspect your plantation or wood shutters. Make sure all the moving parts are moving in the correct direction. If not, then diagnose and correct the problem before it gets worse. Check for chips and cracks. Repair these quickly to prevent further damage.

Shutters and window coverings are very important for your home. Not only do they add style and color to your home, but they are also very practical. Whether you are remodeling or moving into a new home, consider adding shutters or window coverings. The following list contains some of the benefits of using shutters and window coverings for your home.




  • Interior Design. Shutters and window coverings are eye-catching, giving any room in your home an extra special appearance. Not only do they create a fantastic focal point, but also complement any interior style and design.
  • Decrease Home Temperature. Whether you choose shutters or another form of window covering, you are helping to maintain a comfortabletemperature. Window coverings block the hot sunlight from penetrating your home and increasing your home’s temperature. Keeping your home naturally cool will save you money on your monthly energy bill.
  • Prevent Sun Damage. Although it’s nice to have the beautiful sunlight shine into your home, you are putting your flooring and furniture at risk. Ultra-violet sunrays cause your carpet and furniture to age faster and fade. Shutters and window coverings prevent harmful UV rays from entering your home and damaging your carpet and furniture.
  • Privacy. Nobody wants strangers or neighbors peering into their home. Shutters and window coverings prevent nosey neighbors from interrupting your privacy.
  • Control Light. Natural light is easier on the eyes and saves money on your electricity bills. Of course, there are times when you will want your home dark and restful. Wood or plantation shutters or window coverings will reduce light filtration, helping to control the brightness of your home.
