There are a number of options to choose from when it comes to window treatments. Shutters are not always the first of these to come to mind, but they are one of the best choices!
A window shutter, also called a plantation shutter or interior shutter, gives a beautiful, finished look to any space in your home. Polished enough to offer a sense of distinction, shutters are also understated enough to not overwhelm more casual spaces. In addition to this versatility of appearance, shutters also provide superior light control and insulation. They're a great option for any room in your house-- or for all of them!
Shutters have been used for years in home construction, and so bring a sense of old-world refinement to your home. They can accent formal spaces and round out the polish of an ornate dining room, parlor or living room. However, they can also fit in well with more comfortable, lived-in rooms like dens, bedrooms and kitchens. A modern window shutter is either made from wood or a wood and polymer composite material. Composite wood shutters look like wood and are even more durable than their solid wood counterpart at a fraction of the price. This means that shutters provide a sense of warmth and a natural look that blends as needed with the space in which they're featured.
