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 drapery treatment with shutters for a girls bedroom in Hinsdale Illinois

Draperies for a girl’s bed room in Hinsdale Illinois!

A little girl’s bed room gets a sweet window treatment, in Hinsdale Illinois!

I get a call to design drapery treatment for a two years old girl, and here are the client’s requirements:

  • A classic design that will work now and will work later when she is older.
  • A design for the room that can be easily changed in the future to an extra guest bedroom.
  • A child safe environment.
  • A treatment that will be energy efficient.

Take a look:

How did we meet our clients requirements?

Here is the answer:

  • A Kingston valance was selected for it’s classic look, the pink silk, gives the room a feminine feel, it is very simple yet elegant.
  • The style works for now, it will still work when the girl is older and it will make a wonderful guest bedroom for the future with minimal changes.
  • Shutters was the choice for privacy, energy efficiency, and child safety! That is correct, since there is no cords to worry about injury and it meets the child safety requirements.

Woven wood shades! Sophisticated or casual, they will work in both settings

Woven wood blinds are gaining popularity in the Chicago land area! Here are three things you should know about woven wood blinds:

  • They are woven from natural grasses, bamboo, and various reeds. That is why they are considered “green” window coverings because they are sustainable, renewable and Eco-friendly window treatments.
  • They can be used in a casual setting, such as a sun room, boat house, and marina homes. Or if a more sophisticated setting is what the client is after, then they can be combined with other materials like silks, brushed cottons, and wool to achieve elegance and beauty.
  • They are now available in various colors and textures to give the consumer vast assortments to choose from.

Girls bed rooms! Pink, Pocka dots, bows and ribbons!

It is always a joy to design a girl’s bed room. The creativity is endless, the choices of fabrics and trims are countless and, and the sky is the limit when it comes to design ideas.

I love to listen to the moms describing their daughters personalities, with smiles on their faces, and the fun that is waiting for them during the entire design process! The anticipation for something beautiful about to arrive!

In the past I have used lace for more traditional looks, sheers and silks for transitional designs, and bows, ruffles, and trims for embellishments. We have achieved so many design trends that appealed to the clients. Now I am working for a Naperville client to do a modern whimsical look! I can not wait to see the project complete, in order to share it with you.

Barbara Barry Designs with soft,calm, and serene Palettes!

I find myself drawn to Barbara Barry’s designs and philosophy. She believes in transforming peoples lives through design. Her soft palettes, mostly taken from nature, with clean lines, and minimum use of patterns allow us as humans, she believes, to create our own patterns in the room. All that makes her designs so perfect for city dwellers, as well as suburban living.

The environment that we live in has an impact on how we feel, and strongly affects our well-being. Therefore having a well designed space that reflects our style, with the colors patterns, textures that make us make us feel good, safe, happy, and contented, is very important, and that is my job! I often feel that I am the therapist for your home. I help my clients to improve their spaces, whether it is by rearranging the furniture, adding a few pillows or decorative accessories, repainting, or adding new window covering. A simple make over or a major one, we assist in the project from start to end.

We offer free design consultation, and now free phone consultation to help you begin! Call us (630)420-0800.
