2 Key Reasons Interior Shutters Benefit Interior Design

Interior ShuttersInterior shutters offer the Toronto homeowner a number of key benefits. If you’ve been looking for a reason to purchase custom wood interior shutters for your home, but maybe you’re having trouble convincing your spouse or other interested party, consider the two primary benefits that these shutters will offer your home.

More privacy and comfort.

With interior shutters, you will enjoy more privacy than other types of window coverings offer. Wood window shutters can close completely, cutting off all points of view into the home.

You will also feel more comfortable in your home, during the day as well as at night because you can control the amount of light that enters the home more easily with shutters than you can with any other type of window covering.

Too often we tend to accept things the way they are because we don’t expect that they can improve or be better. Yet once you have custom interior shutters installed on your windows, you will know what it means to have true comfort. Every room in your home will feel different; you’ll enjoy spending time in it much more.

More value for your home.

Few things actually improve the value of a home as much as windows and the coverings that you use. Drapes and curtains will not do anything to help boost the value of your home. Shutters can.

This is because natural wood shutters are a highly desirable window covering that is universal and can work with a wealth of different interior designs. When you are focused on trying to figure out what window covering would go with antique, modern, contemporary, or artistic interior design and layout, there is only one that fits all of them without a problem. That is wood shutters.

When you want the best interior design and complement to your décor, consider interior wood shutters.

Window Shutters Will Save You Money This Winter

plantation-650Running your heat is not the only way to keep your home warm this winter. You can lower your energy bills any number of ways – adding insulation, weatherproofing windows and doors, wearing warmer clothes inside, etc. Window shutters are another cost effective way to reduce your energy bills and keep your home feeling toasty.

Closing your shutters against chilly winter drafts does more than make the room feel cozier; it can also actually make the room warmer. You’ll be able to keep the heat lower longer by closing your window shutters to conserve interior heat. A lot of heat is lost through poorly insulated windows, your shutters add another layer that helps trap heat and keep out the cold.

Shutters are more effective than curtains or blinds in terms of energy efficiency. They also provide better privacy and security. With shorter days in the winter, we tend to keep our lights on longer; a habit that can lend itself to privacy issues. Shutters can act as a barrier to the outside and ensure that you and your family are safe.

By using plantation or solid panel shutters you can protect your family from prying eyes by simply closing them as it gets dark out. They can also act as a deterrent to an intruder because they are yet another barrier to traverse before getting into the home. During the day, shutters can be opened to provide the warm of the sun and natural light.

As previously mentioned, plantation or solid panel are the best styles to choose from both energy efficiency and privacy. Plantation shutters are a great choice because they feature louvered panels that can be adjusted. Plantation shutters are available in hardwood or painted wood, and they can also be waterproofed to be able to be used in high-moisture areas like bathrooms or kitchens.

Solid panel shutters originated in the Victorian era and are now used to help make homes more energy efficient. The solid wood panels provide a lot of coverage and can also help reduce external light and noise from entering your home. They are the most effective for privacy and a very popular choice for bedrooms.

Both of these shutter styles look great in your home and help reduce those high-energy costs. Indoor shutters can also be custom made to fit any window.
