Enhance Your Décor With Interior Shutters
If you're tired of basic window treatments, try upgrading your home with interior shutters. This style of window treatment permanently mounts on your window frames. Once it's in place, you can swing the interior panel open for an uninterrupted view. A shutter also contains a louvered panel with thin slats. You can easily angle these slats to let more or less light in. With their ability to provide darkness, full light, and filtered light, interior shutters are a versatile option for any home.
There are several different types of shutters to choose from. If you love the natural beauty of wood, you may want solid wood interior shutters. However, if you prefer something a little more affordable and practical, composite shutters can be a nice choice. Don't forget that shutters come in multiple styles, too. You can get small, narrow shutters with multiple panels or large ones with oversize slats. The wide variety makes it easy to find the right shutter style for single windows, groups of windows, and even French doors.
Reasons Why People Love These Window Treatments
A wood shutter does a lot more than just giving you adjustable light control. In addition to helping you regulate light levels in your home, these window treatments offer other advantages, such as:
- Stunning appearance: When it comes to style, you can't beat interior shutters. These window treatments seamlessly blend in with your surrounding window trim yet provide a distinct look. They easily complement all décor types and make your windows a standout feature.
- Versatile design: It's easy to customize your design and get precisely the effect you want. You can pick narrower slats for a charming, traditional look or larger slats for a crisp, modern appearance. The shutters come in painted neutrals and stained woods, so you can find a color that coordinates with your home décor.
- Insulating effect: When a shutter is tightly fitted into your window, it blocks unpleasant drafts. Especially if you use faux wood, a shutter helps to reduce your HVAC usage. This insulation can save you money in the long run since it lowers your utility bills.
- Improved home value: These are one of the few types of window treatments that can boost your property value. Since these shutters are so desirable, many home buyers will pay extra for a home that comes equipped with them.
Upgrade Options for Your Shutters
If you want the best shutter style possible, consider adding one of these options to your design.
- Decorative frames: Get the best look for your home by adding a decorative frame. Choose from styles with elaborate beveling or streamlined styles with a minimalist look.
- Hidden tilt rod: The tilt rod that runs down the middle of the shutter is a classic look. However, if you prefer something a little simpler, you can upgrade to a hidden design. This lets you control slat angles with an invisible rod.
- Split tilt: This upgrade is ideal for taller windows. It lets you divide a shutter's controls in half. You can adjust the parts of the window independently, so you can do things like opening just the top half.
- Premium hardware and stain: For the perfect look, upgrade your window treatment with a premium wood stain or hardware color. You can do things like select brass hinges or mahogany-stained wood. This upgrade makes it easy to find a shutter that matches your interior design vision.
Since this style of window treatment comes with so many options, you'll need to choose your design wisely. Here are a few things to know before you settle on a specific shutter type.
- Some types of shutter materials will warp in humid environments, so choose your window treatments wisely. Faux wood can be an ideal option for kitchens and bathrooms because it's moisture resistant.
- Keep in mind that genuine wood can be quite heavy, so it won't work for large windows with delicate frames. In these situations, lightweight composite wood can be a better option.
- Make sure you choose a shutter mount that still lets you open the window itself. An inside mount will obstruct windows that tilt inwards.
- For larger windows, consider using multiple panels. They can be a little easier to operate than a single massive panel.
