The use of interior shutters is a timeless concept in interior decoration, having a long history of appeal in the past, and still retaining extraordinary appeal in the present day. Shutters are high-quality items which add great value to your home, so if you're ever considering selling your home in the future, you can expect that your interior shutters will increase the resale value of your house when it hits the market. Best of all, shutters can be custom crafted by your window covering experts at Zion Window Fashions, to provide your home with a unique style that will be the envy of friends and neighbors. Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider installing shutters in your home.
Permanent addition to the home
Unlike some other window treatments, interior shutters are a permanent addition to your home, which means they will not require periodic replacement, or any kind of upgrade in the future. Because they are a permanent addition, they add value to the home, which will be reflected at the time of resale. Rich wooden shutters look just as beautiful from the outside as they do from the inside of the home, so anyone passing by will be sure to notice their natural beauty. They are also available in an endless variety of paint or stain colors, so as to match your existing decor, or to establish a new decor for your interior.
Light and temperature control
Interior shutters are excellent for establishing and maintaining light and temperature control for the inside of your homer. You can open the shutters when you desire to have more sunlight enter the room, and they can be closed down when you want to minimize incoming light. The same is true of controlling temperature, with the strongest rays of the sun being prevented from entering a room where your shutters are installed, thus minimizing the effects of heat gain. In wintertime, closing down the shutters will retain interior heat, rather than allowing it to leak outside.
Shutters are green
Wooden shutters are naturally constructed using woods that are sustainable, which is a boon to the environment, and something you can feel good about personally. Because of their beautiful wood construction, shutters never look dated, but have been used consistently for decades, retaining their aesthetic appeal for the interior of many homes in the country. Even though they look highly upscale and expensive, wooden shutters come with a very affordable price tag, so that virtually all homeowners can afford them.
Shutters are highly functional
In addition to providing light and temperature control for any room where they are installed, shutters are great because they will not fade over time, as other window coverings might. In addition, they do not collect debris, dust, and allergens, because they are hard surfaces where such materials find it harder to settle. They can also be wiped clean very easily when materials do settle on them, which is a quality that most soft treatment window coverings simply cannot duplicate.
Wooden shutters have a tremendous life expectancy when installed on your windows, which is something that cannot be said for some other window coverings. With even modest care, shutters will probably last you for decades, and will literally never go out of style in the meantime. Because there are no strings or cords associated with wooden shutters, they are also much safer when younger children are around. Window shutters are also so versatile that they can blend in easily with any kind of decor, from ultra-modern to traditional, so they are suitable for virtually every home in the country.
