Today’s homeowners have more opportunities for personalizing the interiors of their homes than ever before, thanks to the help of shutters.

Homeowners throughout the United States are choosing interior shutters instead blinds and drapes. Shutters can serve as both a visually appealing and functional window treatment that can instantly upgrade the look of any home. In addition, the right shutter can help control the light, sound, and heat that enter your house.

There are many reasons you may want to consider adding indoor shutters to your home.

Shutters can be adjusted to keep the inside of your home less visibile from the outside.

Real wood shutters are more durable and will last years longer than blinds or shades.

Energy savings
In addition to being a beautiful addition to your home, shutters offer extra insulation.

Most shutters just need to be wiped with a damp cloth.

Shutters are available in various colors and designs to complement the design of your home.

When you have shutters, you can open your windows and then adjust your shutters to let as much or as little air in to your own as you desire.

Child safety
Because shutters do not have strings hanging like most blinds do, they are a safer alternative for homes with children.

Style is a key selling point for most people when considering shutters, but shutters also offer homeowners beauty and value. A survey of Draperies & Window Coverings Magazine readers said that the No. 1 reason people buy shutters is aesthetics.
