Plantation Shutters, Clarendon Hills Illinois

Plantation shutters not only add beauty, elegance, poise, and refinement to any home, but they also come at a great value!

Here are six reasons why you should add shutters to your home:

  • The rich, wooden shutters can be added to any type of interior space, whether the style is traditional, transitional, eclectic, or contemporary.
  •  In the past, only the rich and wealthy were able to afford them. Now, the shutters have the look and feel of expense without the overwhelming price.
  • With the ability to regulate how much sunlight enters your room, shutters are a great way to save energy.
  • They require very little maintenance and are easy to clean.
  • Since shutters are permanent unlike other window treatments, they will easily add value to your property when the time comes to sell your house.
  • Wooden shutters are very appealing to potential home buyers. They are considered a home addition and will help you sell your home faster, especially in a market like the one we have today.

Although the initial cost might be high, in the long run, you will find yourself justifying the initial investment because the shutters really do provide an economical solution.

Why draperies, shades, blinds or curtains?

Seems like ages ago when what you hung up in front of your windows were simple curtains. Over the years though, so many incredible designs, styles, fabrics and technological innovations have turned “curtains” into the most elegant and personal statement you can make when it comes to home decor. With options like glorious valances, sumptuous cornice designs, acres of fabric, gorgeous ornamentation, hardware or tassels, and the look and feel becomes pure luxury. The key is finding and selecting the perfect fabric to achieve your design goal.

 

Casual elegance can be achieved with textured fabrics. Shimmering silks, blends and new synthetics can bring an elegance that makes your rooms shine. Multi-layered effects help achieve depth at any window. Add fabric sheers, shadings, and blinds beneath custom-designed draperies and you’ll be making the ultimate décor statement.

Selecting the proper window coverings can be a daunting task. There are a lot of things that need to be considered; the architecture of the window, the style of the room, privacy, sun control, fabric type, function, and hardware. There are many options available on the market today and window coverings have never been more important and cost-effective.

 

Window coverings can provide energy efficiency in a home as well as privacy and security. They can protect your furniture, flooring, and artwork from the damaging rays of the dun. The cellular shade provides full privacy, blocks harmful UV rays, and softly filters in light for a beautiful effect. And the best part is that it comes at an affordable price.

 

The honeycomb construction of this blind allows heat to be trapped in its core keeping your room cooler in the summer and improving the efficiency of your air conditioner. In the winter, this blind traps the drafts, preventing the cold air from entering the room.

Window coverings take your décor to a new level. A naked window at night becomes a big black hole and can make a room feel cold and empty. Fabric on the window is an easy and interesting way to introduce pattern, color, texture, interest, balance, and beauty to a room’s décor.

 

Often clients say that they don’t want to cover their windows because they enjoy their view. Privacy and sun control aside, a simple, well designed window covering will actually frame the view, enhancing it while providing a certain look and coziness to the room. In my opinion, no window should ever be bare.
