Why Interior Shutters are a great choice

23 Jan Why Interior Shutters are a great choice

Why use interior Shutters

  • There is more than one way to dress up a window. Because they are often ready made and easily hung, sure most people think of drapes and curtains.
  • What they might not realize is that interior shutters are a beautiful, traditional window treatment that can be used with or without other types of window dressings.

Interior Shutters Versus Blinds & Shades

  • With interior shutters you have a little bit of both– function and frill. Shutters will block out light, even act as an insulator for the window, but they are also quite decorative.
  • Interior shutters differ in purpose from exterior shutters. Originally shutters were used to protect a home’s windows from the wind of a hurricane or cold of a winter storm. Now most exterior shutters are purely decorative in nature.
  • There are window coverings and window dressings or treatments. To the untrained in decorating (which may account for most husbands) a shade or blind that blocks out light and provides privacy may seem like a complete window treatment.

Installing Shutters

  • Then you can install your own interior shutters, if you can master home improvement projects of average difficulty. This is a DYI project that can be completed in very little time and with basic tools.
  • If you are doing an interior mount– that is on the inside of a window box, then you are all set with secure 2×4 studs to securely hold shutter screws. Normal hinges are used to hand the shutter and can be screwed into place.  Shutter Installation guide

Finishing & Caring for Shutters

  • You can pre-prime and paint shutters before installing them. Vinyl shutters never need painting, but a good cleaning with warm, soapy water from time to time in order to removed build up dust or dirt.
  • Interior shutters add a warm, traditional feel to any home. Large slated shutters, often called Plantation Shutters, get their name from the old southern plantations.
  • What they might not realize is that interior shutters are a beautiful, traditional window treatment that can be used with or without other types of window dressings.
