Creating privacy and keeping out light is also one of our artistic interior design choices. There are plenty of window dressing choices out there like mini blinds, curtains, and interior shutters. Whether keeping out the annoying distraction of sun glare or the glaring eyes of peeping neighbors, you should choose an elegant way to dress your windows.
Interior shutters were the original way to treat windows. Plantation shutters were commonly used in Southern and urban houses, and they continue to add elegant and historical detail. They also help with energy efficiency by keeping out cold winter frost and summer heat. In addition, the interior shutters give a much more classic look that the black out, energy saving thick curtains on the market. Mini blinds certainly do not share the same protection or appearance.
Interior shutters are also easy to install on any window because they are able to be fixed to a thin frame that either sits inside the window opening or around the outside of the casing. As long as the frame is positioned correctly, the shutters will swing freely.
Installation can usually be a do it yourself project and will only take a few hours at most.
When choosing your interior shutter you will want to research different styles, wood, and prices. You can have shutters custom designed to fit oversized windows or just for specific designs. Compare the styles and prices online to get the best deals on your new elegant window dressings. Before you know it, everyone will be complimenting your interior design skills. References.
