Plantation shutters

Considering Plantation Shutters?

Plantation shutters not only add beauty, elegance, poise, and dignity to any home, but they also represent great value!

Here are six reasons why you should consider plantation shutters for your home:

  • Rich-looking wooden shutters can complement any style of interior space – regardless of whether the style is traditional, transitional, eclectic, or contemporary.
  • In the past, it was typically only affluent homeowners who were able to afford them. Now, shutters have the look and feel of affluence without the overwhelming price tag.
  • Interior shutters are a great way to save energy because you can regulate how much sunlight enters the room through the windows, helping keep the room cool in summer and warm in winter.
  • They require very little maintenance and are easy to clean.
  • Shutters are more permanent than other window treatments and much less reflective of personal style and taste than, say, draperies. So when it comes time to sell your home, the vast majority of potential home buyers will find plantation shutters very appealing. In fact, plantation shutters are considered a home upgrade, and they will help you sell your home faster – especially in a market like the one we have today.

Although the initial cost might be higher for plantation shutters than for other types of window treatments, in the long run, you will be happy you made the initial investment because shutters really will provide long-term enjoyment for you and be an appealing upgrade that potential home buyers will appreciate.

A Dining Room Design, with the wow factor!Naperville Illinois.

What was the client’s desire for this beautiful dining room?

I get a call from this wonderful client that I met in the mid nineties and been working with her since then. Her house located in Naperville, Dupage county Illinois, saw three different changes since then. She likes to update her house with new designs about every five to six years, and she gets so much joy each time with the transformation.

This time it is her dining room, her dream is to have a dining room that she could use every now and then for her, her husband, and the children when they come for visit.

She wanted a dining room that is formal enough for guests, yet it is user friendly for every day use.

She loves painted furniture, therefore we had her oak colonial dining table to be faux painted and distressed with several layers of paint to give depth to the piece in addition adding distressing where it looked natural from wear and tear of years of use. Her draperies came out looking stunning! We have selected together a cotton fabric printed with fruits and a color scheme that works with the rest of the house. The fabric was a classic, though what made the draperies so special are the banding on the leading edges of each panel, a solid yellow cotton was selected that worked amazingly well with the main body of the drapery, the faux finished table and the wall paint.

Grommets were inserted along the length of the panels, right on the banding and a braid fringe was threaded through the grommets! We both were so impressed by that look and felt very proud! Now that what we call ( THE WOW FACTOR)!
