Shutters are the interior designer‘s best friend and the most appreciated window covering because they offer so many options for light control, they add value to the home, and last for the longest amount of time out of the other available window covering options. They are beautiful and elegant semi-permanent additions to your home.
The WOW Effect
Shutters have a wow affect on everybody the minute they see them. This is what everyone strives for when designing their home. Whether that “WOW” is subtle and understated or bold and beautiful, shutters help you get there. Modern shutters have “invisible” hinges and center poles that are not truly “invisible,” but are offered in 5 different finishes to coordinate with the hardware in the room. This is a nice, subtle touch to any living space.
“Shutters our our forte. We take the time and look at the house and the room’s design and we choose the right frame for the shutter.”
