Shutters

View All Categories
Shutters are a window treatment that provides multiple benefits for homeowners simultaneously. They can be customized in a number of ways and designed to blend with classic styles or modern designs. Read on to learn about the many benefits of house shutters and speak with a window shutter expert at Blind Builders, Inc. about bringing those benefits home with you.

Trifecta of Design

Indoor window shutters have interwoven features that users can experience multiple benefits from the window treatment. It’s this ability to serve multiple functions simultaneously that has made shutters so popular throughout the ages, and why so many people still enjoy house shutters today.

  • Natural Air Flow: The slatted design of window shutters allows for natural airflow between the louvers even while the louvers are actively engaged (for light control or privacy). So, whether it is sunny or stormy, shutters help keep indoor temperatures comfortable by blocking negative elements and allowing natural ventilation.
  • Precise Light Control: The hard louvers of indoor window shutters are impenetrable to light, and so when engaged, they can deflect or block sunlight with ease. This allows homeowners to control the amount of light that enters then home, whether they want more light for natural illumination or warmth in the winter or less light when trying to keep indoor temperatures cooler in the summer.
  • Enhanced Privacy: The rigid slats of window shutters can block both light and the view, providing enhanced light control and privacy. And depending on which direction louvers are tilted, homeowners can maintain a degree of the view out, opening the feel of house interiors yet keeping residents private and protected.

Types of Shutters

Modern interior shutters are often made of three types of materials: woods, vinyl, or faux-wood composites that are hybrids of several materials. Each type of shutter has its own, unique benefits and choosing the best style for your home or business may include considering functional needs and aesthetic preferences.
