Three Unexpected Benefits of Interior Shutters
Home decor with a classic style can have an elegance that modern styles aren’t able to capture. When it comes to window treatments, nothing is more of a southern classic than interior shutters. Interior shutters are a great way to put a little “Grace Kelly” into your Wilmington home’s style. Aside from looking simply fabulous, here are three reasons you should choose interior shutters for your window treatments.
Interior Shutters are Energy Efficient
Energy efficiency means money in your pocket. You already know how it works: the less you run your heating or air conditioning system, the less you spend on energy bills. Shutters made of wood or composite do a great job of keeping the cool air inside during the summer and the warm air inside during the winter. They also fit tightly to your window frame, so the inside and outside air don’t mix – unless you decide to open the windows. Shutter slats (properly called “louvers”) are very good at deflecting sunlight too, which will keep the hot Wilmington sun out and add to the comfort of your home during the summer.
Interior Shutters Can Reduce Allergens
Curtains can make a room look stunning. However, they require regular thorough cleaning. It’s impossible to get rid of 100% of the allergens in your everyday environment, and curtains tend to attract and collect them. This is an area where interior shutters have a huge advantage. Cleaning the dust, pollen, and pet dander off of shutters requires a simple wiping with a damp cloth – that’s it. If you suffer from allergies, interior shutters are a wise choice because they can stay consistently clean with just a little bit of care.
Kids Won’t Outgrow Interior Shutters
Shutters are durable. They can endure spills, beatings, and other youthful outbursts much better than blinds or drapery. They don’t go out of style and are easy to keep clean. Most importantly, a point that cannot be overemphasized: they are cordless, and are therefore not a strangulation danger to children.
These are just a few of the benefits of interior shutters. But there are really so many more reasons to have this stylish window treatment in your home:
- Interior shutters are a permanent addition to your home, unlike many other treatments which must be periodically replaced.
- They do better than most window coverings at blocking out light, which can contribute to a better night’s sleep.
- Interior shutters won’t fade like other treatments may.
- Installing quality window shutters can increase the value of your home (and by the way, we happen to be pros at installation).
