They look classy, never go out of style, and fit with any decorating scheme or seasonal trend. Your clothes say a lot about your character and your windows do like wise. Wooden plantation shutters tell the world that you like elegance, but also appreciate the warmth that they bring to a room.
Maybe you think your windows look pretty good naked and that’s great if they do. Frilly window treatments may be too over the top for you. That’s yet another reason why wooden plantation shutters are such a terrific choice! Wood shutters can be opened to allow the sun to shine in but, can also be angled so all your naked glory stays inside where your neighbors can’t see!
From early childhood we have been taught to dress ourselves in style hiding all of our flaws and flaunting all the good stuff. Window treatments should be approached in much the same way. Your window may not need to hide there pear shape but realize that all window are not the same and one treatment doesn’t cover all. Fortunately for you wooden shutters are custom made to fit your window’s exact shape!
Now you may be thinking by this point, is there some way to get that “designer look” without paying that “designer price?” Well, there are several options. You can choose a faux wood (such as a composite made from sawdust and wood chips).
However, if you live in an area with high humidity, be prepared for them to swell and become warped. Another option is use vinyl shutters. These are just as sturdy and long-lasting (if not more so) as wood, but a lot smaller price.
They are especially nice if you’re wanting to go with a particular color instead of a wood grain. While you can get vinyl shutters that resemble a wood grain, they won’t look as authentic as the real thing.
Please don’t let your windows suffer the embarrassment of nakedness any longer! Get them dressed and looking fine without delay! Whether or not you insist on dressing yourself in designer duds, your windows deserve the best. Wooden plantation shutters are truly the “designer” window covering. Your window will stand up and shout “look at me I’m special.”
