When it comes to making the tough choice of what to use for interior window coverings, most people consider blinds and/or drapery treatments. Both have their pros and cons, although there’s another option that usually wins hands down – Shutters! With their crisp, elegant look and a variety of advantages and benefits, shutters are the perfect solution for those who want their window coverings to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Advantages of Shutters
Shutters offer a streamlined look that can really pull a room together. With shutters, the louvers are controlled by the center or rear tilt-bar for a seamless look. Though lightweight, Eclipse Shutters are sturdy and engineered to add the benefit of energy efficiency, blocking out the suns hot rays in the summer and cold drafts in the winter. Aside from their effortlessly elegant look, Eclipse Shutters offer advantages in addition to those mentioned above. Unlike many other brands of shutters, Eclipse Shutters can be expected to last at least 25 years with minimal care. Eclipse Shutters won’t be damaged by the sun since they’re UV resistant, and can’t be damaged by water or steam in high moisture areas. Their greatest advantage is for those who seek control over both light and airflow into their homes. Unlike draperies and blinds, shutters provide ultimate control over both.
