One window treatment that will almost always be in style are shutters. Shutters look great and add tons of great features and benefits to homes from energy efficiency to light control. Different forms of shutters have been used for thousands of years. If they’ve stayed in style and function for that long, you can bet that they will continue to do so for many more years to come.
There are some kinds of shutters that are only used in the past for decoration. They were fixed to the outside of a home and were not operable, instead serving as a style fixture to add a welcoming and homey look to a house. Modern shutters today are not just for look. They are functional and stylish, giving homeowners the ability to control light and heat in the home. You also can’t go wrong with shutters for your replacement windows because they are sustainable and energy efficient as well as fashionable. Shutters are designed to not only boost home style but also to help moderate temperature and light inside a home to help keep the home comfortable and energy efficient.
There are a few different kinds of stylish shutters to choose from for your replacement windows:
- Exterior Shutters – The most traditional kind of exterior shutter, be it raised panel or louvred style, offers a warm and welcoming décor look. These shutters are often smaller than the windows and wouldn’t cover the entire window if they were able to be closed. However, there are some kinds of board-and-batten shutters that are made to fit windows by size and shape and can be opened or closed as per homeowner preference.
- Plantation Shutters – Plantation shutters are usually exterior shutters that offer the style of traditional exterior shutters and the functionality of interior shutters. They can be fully opened or closed and also have louvres that adjust to give even more day-to-day customization.
- Interior Shutters – Interior shutters are mostly for function, as they offer both light control and weather protection. There are a few different kinds of interior shutters. Café shutters block only part of the window, usually sitting on the top or bottom half of the opening. Shaker shutters on the other hand cover the full window and have a very durable construction that make them ideal for security, light control and weather protection.
