Shutters can add curb appeal and make your house stand out. But have you considered adding them on the backside as well?
Shutters should resemble windows that could be closed; thus, they don’t work well on double or triple paned windows.
Curb appeal is key when selling your home, and exterior shutters have an immense effect. While other renovation projects might take more time and money to execute, installing window shutters is a quick and affordable way to instantly transform its appearance.
Shutters create an exquisite visual style, unmatched by any other window coverings. A coat of paint will also enhance their beauty, adding curb appeal and making an even more elegant statement about you and your property.
Some may balk at the concept of investing in curb appeal, but it is crucial for prospective buyers to have an excellent first impression of your home. When they see well-kept exterior with appealing color combinations and excellent maintenance practices, they will likely be more receptive to exploring inside more fully. This is especially important for homes with HOAs who often impose strict curb appeal guidelines that must be observed.
Window shutters have become an attractive addition to many homes for both aesthetic and practical reasons, providing ventilation, light control, insulation and value enhancement at resale time. Many homeowners choose shutters not just as an aesthetic addition but because of the many benefits they bring such as ventilation control, light regulation and insulation – helping reduce energy costs as well as add to resale potential.
Note, however, that not all windows are suitable for shutters since their addition is permanent and cannot be opened or closed independently of the window frame. Single windows that stand alone may be better suited than ones part of larger frames for this use.
If you are contemplating adding shutters to your home, it is advisable to consult a professional before making a final decision. By doing so, you will have an opportunity to explore all available options and find what best meets your needs – which LAS professionals are happy to do. We provide expert guidance as well!
Shutters are an attractive window treatment that will set your home apart in any neighborhood. Available in an assortment of wood varieties and styles ranging from classical to modern, shutters add visual interest to any room and are an essential component for interior designers.
Storm shutters can also provide your home with much-needed protection during a storm, eliminating the need to cover windows with plywood and making cleaning much simpler.
Shutters can be an investment in your house. Not only do they increase property values and convey that your house is worth buying to potential buyers, they’re also long-lasting if properly cared for – so perfect for any style home and personalized to meet personal preferences such as color choice, louver size options, hinges/hinges to tilt rod options etc.
Blinds made by humans require regular maintenance and upkeep, with shutters no exception. Though decorative shutters often rely on just hinges and “Shutter Dogs” for support, even non-functional shutters need air flow around them for expansion and contraction purposes; otherwise water may accumulate on their frames, bacteria begin growing, insects settle down in them, rot ensues, and water may infiltrate through.
Shutters offer many advantages for windows, such as increasing property values and curb appeal while at the same time helping reduce energy bills by keeping heat inside and blocking harmful UV rays that cause furniture fading. Plus, their slatted design makes it difficult for people to see into your house from outside – making shutters an excellent way to maintain privacy in homes that face busy roads or neighboring houses with close proximity. They can be tilted at a half angle for natural light or completely shut for full privacy protection.
