Functional Benefits

 
  • Privacy
 
Our shutter slats close flat in the upwards direction for maximum privacy, preventing anyone outside the home from being able to see in. You can even partly open the slats to let in some light while maintaining a high level of privacy.
 
  • Light Blockage
 
Darken a room so you can sleep better through the night, or fully open your slats to let the light flood in! The upwards closure of our slats also helps to maximize light blockage.

Shutters offer more control over light and privacy than other window treatments.

 
  • Low Maintenance
No vacuuming, chemical cleaners or flying dust to worry about! Wipe your shutters down with a microfiber cloth occasionally to keep clean. Your shutters will also keep dust from entering the room, for the added bonus of less dusting throughout the house.
  • Ventilation
Keep your window open and your shutter panels closed. Adjust the slats as desired to control air flow into the room, while keeping your privacy maintained.
  • Noise Reduction
Shutters’ insulative properties will reduce outside noise when your shutters and slats are closed. Our solid polyvinyl shutters featuring an aluminum core, or our full solid wooden panels will offer the most noise reduction.

Family Friendly

  • Healthy Air
 
Above, we mentioned less dust for low maintenance window coverings. Shutters give a protective barrier to your windows reducing dust, pollen, dander and other allergens in the room.
 
  • Child Safety
 
Besides the added benefit of reduced dust and allergens, shutters are a great option for a child’s room for safety! No hanging fabric, strings or cords means your child is safer. Our 100% solid material shutters are durable and easy to repair or maintain.
 
Some of our customers will use shutters as a room divider to block off an opening to prevent children from climbing or peeking through.

  • Pet Friendly
Because our shutters are strong and durable, they hold up well to your furry family members!
Many customers love that they can keep the lower portion of their shutters closed to keep their pets from seeing out the window and barking at passers-by, but can keep the top of their shutters open separately.

We have seen special projects where our customers use shutters to block off an open cabinet or closet or used as a divider to keep pets out of a certain area in the home.

Half solid shutters are another great option to keep pets from peeking out the window while letting in light at the same time.
