Interior Shutters Enhance Your Home

If you’re a person who wants to relax and enjoy the finer comforts of your home, then you likely spend time and money on the ideal interior design. You may spend a great deal of money on furniture, settings, moulding, paints with pleasant colors, beautiful art to hang on the walls, and any other kind of enhancement you can think of. Then, when it comes to the windows, curtains, shades or drapes are the most common choice. While these may serve their purpose, interior shutters are not only stylish and elegant, they provide a great deal more privacy and function.

Interior Shutters Save You Money

When you place interior shutters on your windows, you can save a considerable amount of money on your cooling bills during the summer months. Not only do interior shutters provide an extra layer of insulation over the window –which is energy efficient for any season, they block more sunlight, keeping your home cooler in the summer.

By adding interior shutters, you will save money on your cooling bills in the summer and heating bills in the winter.

Easier to Clean

Interior shutters are far simpler to keep clean than any other window décor. You’ll spend less time worrying about dusting between the blinds, removing the curtains and drapes to wash them, or struggling with shades.

How To Measures For Shutters

If you are interested in interior shutters, Canada Custom Shutters is more than available to come to your home and take measurements for you. However, it’s a relatively simple measurement that you can do yourself as well. The following instructions should provide the necessary information for you to make an accurate measurement for your shutters.

Inside Mounted Shutters

Most shutters are mounted on the inside of the window frame and are therefore referred to as inside mounts. For this, measure between the side window jambs (or casing) for the width of the shutters. Next, measure from the top jamb (or casing) to the window sill or floor, depending on what type of window you have.

Measuring the Available Depth

To determine if your windows are deep enough for the style of shutters you want, measure the depth from the outside edge of the window jambs, not including any moldings, to the window frame itself. You may need a depth of up to 3-1/2” for California shutters, for example, or as little as 1-1/2” for smaller shutters.

What if Your Chosen Shutters Won’t Fit on an Inside Mount?

If your shutters will need to be attached with an outside mount, there will need to be a separate piece of wood that will need to be affixed directly to wall studs. For this, an in-home consultation will be needed to determine the proper shutter size for your windows.

For any windows that are not square, special mounting will be needed which will require more in-depth measurements. Allow Canada Custom Shutters to provide those measurements for you to ensure that your new shutters will fit perfectly.

Reasons to Choose Wood Shutters

There are plenty of reasons to choose wood shutters over any other kind of window covering or dressing, and it’s a good idea to understand a few of them before making any decision.

  1. Natural appeal. Wood shutters provide a natural appeal and contrast to any room in your home.
  2. Traditional look. Wood shutters have been used for centuries, both indoors and outdoors and that gives them a traditional appearance that you won’t find with any other kind of window décor, including drapes, curtains, or blinds.
  3. Authentic. Most homes are made of wood and wood shutters provide an authentic feel to any room in your house. If you have hardwood floors, wood shutters are the best complement for them.
  4. Cost efficient. While most wood shutters may cost more than traditional coverings such as drapes and curtains, they are more effective as insulating your home against the cold air in the winter and hot air in the summer. This efficiency will save you money on heating and cooling bills over time.
  5. More privacy. Wood shutters provide better privacy than other window coverings. When closed, no one can see into your home.
  6. Blocks more natural sunlight. During the summer, you want to block more direct sunlight from getting into your home. This helps keep your home cooler and saves money as well. Wood shutters block more natural sunlight than vinyl or other types of window dressings.
  7. Durable. Wood shutters are built to stand the test of time. They will last longer than any other product that you could place over your windows.
  8. Easy to maintain. Cleaning wood shutters is as simple as wiping the panels on a regular basis. No more wrestling with the vacuum to clean curtains and no more struggling with clumsy blinds.
  9. More opulence. If you want your home to have a more elegant and opulence feel, wood shutters are the ideal solution.
  10. Increase the value of your home. Wood shutters will become a natural part of your home and will also increase the aesthetic and ultimately financial appeal of your home.
