No matter what part of the country you live in, the warm summer months bring sunshine, flowers in full bloom and warm breezes. What better time to invest in plantation shutters? They allow you to take all of this in from the comfort of your home or office.
Why Are Plantation Shutters Better than Other Window Coverings?
Custom indoor plantation shutters are made with wider louvers thus provide a better view than traditional window coverings. When fully open, they provide a virtually-unobstructed view of the outdoors as well as lighten and brighten the room. However, when fully closed, they allow for complete privacy. Of course, quality faux wood shutters have a multitude of other benefits. They increase the value of your home, help save on energy costs, are durable and easy to care for and add classic style to any room. However, a big part of the reason they are increasingly chosen over traditional window coverings is that they can provide a nearly-unobstructed view of the outdoors or complete privacy.
Choose from a Variety of Options
At Eclipse Shutters, we offer custom-made indoor shutters with multiple design options that allow you to choose how you open and close them and exactly how much.
We offer louver sizes in 2 ½, 3 ½ and 4 ½ inches wide and both a standard and bi-fold configuration.
Some people opt for a horizontal divider rail. This is a popular choice for bathrooms and other areas where you may want to leave the bottom shutters closed for privacy, but have the top ones open to let light in.
Plantation shutters are a popular choice to complement sliding glass doors because they can be opened along with the door to provide easy access to your pool and patio areas.
Reduce your Energy Bills and Carbon Footprint as the Seasons Change
As summer sets in, plantation shutters can help keep your rooms at a comfortable temperature. In the closed position, Eclipse Shutters reflect solar heat gain so you can delay having to turn on the air conditioning. That’s because our shutters' cellular construction provides an additional barrier to keep out the sun’s rays and hot air that can seep into your home.
