Why Are Shutters the Most Wanted Window Treatment? For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window treatment to cover your windows. They tend to deteriorate over time with the strings breaking and the loops that hold the slats in place falling apart. Not to mention, they’re not easy to clean. Shades offer a variety of colors and unique patterns, turning your window into artwork. By effortlessly pulling up the fabric of the shade, your whole window is exposed and you can see out onto your Denver neighborhood. Draperies also offer a wide collection of color, fabric, and patterns. They are a traditional choice for a window treatment. Installing thick panels between the drapes and the window allows for light and temperature block-out capabilities. And unlike other window treatments, you won’t have to clean draperies for five years. If you want a window treatment that lasts beyond 10 years, saves you money on your energy bills, and looks elegant on your windows, shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but they’re also magnificent and energy efficient. In fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a comparable wood shutter. That’s energy savings you will miss out on with any other window treatment. No other window treatment gives you control over privacy and light as plantation shutters do. And with their large louvers, Polywood plantation shutters give your space a clean contemporary feel whether they’re closed or open.
