If you’re uncertain about which window treatment is best for your house, here are some quick facts to consider.
Shutters have been around for 100’s of years. And even though the style and look of shutters has evolved over the years, for many, shutters are the ideal and must have window treatment. Shutters increase property value and look stunning. Generally, shutters will only have to be installed once and should stand the test of time for the life of the house; both in appearance and in sustainability. The quality of the shutter will speak to its longevity. Shutters offer considerable control of light and help to insulate your windows, making your house more energy efficient.
You have a lot of design control when purchasing shutters. You can choose the louver size, which can be 2.5”, 3.5”, or 4.5”. The larger the louver, the wider the view outside. Traditional shutters have a visible tilt bar, while more contemporary shutters have no visible tilt bar, which is commonly referred to a clear view or hidden tilt. Choosing an exposed tilt bar or opting for a hidden tilt feature generally depends on other design elements in the home. We can help you weigh the pros and cons of choosing a visible or hidden tilt option for your new shutters. Either way, the look is classic, timeless and clean.
Depending on the type of shutters you choose, it's very likely that your new shutters will” trim out” your windows, giving a finished look to your window opening. Since most windows don’t have trim, shutters instantly add another layer of interest to the windows. If you take notice, most homes have baseboards, and many have crown molding, but few, except older homes, have trimmed windows. It’s our opinion that most people enjoy having the finish detail on their windows with the added trim that shutters provide.
An added feature of custom shutters is that you can order your shutters in any paint color. If you have a favorite white color or a special color you've created, as long as that color can be matched to a Sherwin-Williams color, you're able to have your shutters painted in that color; perfectly matching the other trim throughout your home and tying everything together. If color matching doesn’t sound fun or you don’t have the time, our color palette is diverse, and most homeowners can pull from the standard available color options we’ve preselected for you.
Panel configuration is a very personal style option available to you. While many homeowners want as many panels as possible, and feel the panel is what makes the “shutter”, other homeowners want as few panels as possible, making the argument that too many panels are not as clean of a look. We've found that panel configuration can largely depends on the other design elements in your home, such as the look and feel of your home’s architecture, your décor and furnishings, and how you want the shutter to function. You can glean inspiration from our design tools, past projects, our Pinterest page, and books we have in our showroom. There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to panel configuration. It's all a personal choice, just like choosing the color.
Shutters will never go out of style. No matter how contemporary a home, shutters add a sophisticated element of taste and style. Shutters are a luxury window treatment and are generally at the top of the list when it comes to pricing. While Shutter Shop offers a variety of options, manufacturers, and pricing structures, shutters can be cost prohibitive for many, with entry prices for the “average” window starting around $400 - $600 per window. It's for this reason we work closely with homeowners to find the design aesthetics, budget restraints, and overall objectives for the home. Sometimes it's feasible for a homeowner to put shutters on the front of the home (street facing view), while putting a more cost-effective alternative on the rest of the house.
It’s important that shutters be measured and installed professionally. Done correctly, shutters will last the life of the home and look built in, as if there were always there. Shutters are all custom made for your windows and there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution. Whether you have arched, shaped or otherwise rectangularly shaped windows, shutters can be made to fit into just about any window opening.

The term shades is a broad category when it comes to window coverings. Shades fall into the roller, solar, cellular/honeycomb, layered, Zebra, sheer, or motorized category. Shades are offered in near limitless colors, patterns, and designs. Shades tend to be a great entry point for new buyers, as well as a clean and sophisticated design for those gravitating to a more contemporary design. Depending on the shades chosen, many shades offer a palatable budget for most homeowners.
The shade category also includes the natural shade group, which is a window covering deriving from a natural shade fabric like bamboo, or grass. Natural shades add a layer of warmth and texture to any room. Natural shades are created from natural fibers, plants, trees, and other things that grow. It’s arguable that no two natural shades will ever be identical, as the markings will be different from one plant to another, yet they fall within the same color family. When working with your designer, be sure to communicate other color and textures you'll have in the room to be sure the natural shade will complement your current design. Natural shades are a gorgeous addition to most any room. Many natural shade fabrics have an open weave, traditionally not great for privacy. However a liner can be added to the back of the shade, both extending the life of the shade and adding a privacy factor. Natural shades are also very heavy and have limited width and height availability, due to the origin of the materials. Many natural shades can be motorized but have restrictions on what size shade can be operated with a motorized control. When homeowners want entire areas of rooms fitted with natural shades, it's important to find one that will work with the size of your windows. Shutters Shop has 100’s of natural shade “fabrics” available to choose from.
Blinds is the other category of window treatment that gets used a lot. It’s not uncommon to work with a new homeowner who inquires about blinds, but really wants shutters. Blinds are slatted or louvered and horizontal in nature. Blinds can be made from a variety of materials. You can choose from faux wood (no wood at all), composite, or real wood blinds. Blinds have been the builders “go-to” choice for years and offer a suitable solution for budget shoppers. Blinds are available in a variety of louver sizes, typically 1”, 2”, and most commonly, 2.5”. Shutter Shop offers blinds in a variety of paint and stain colors. We also have a builder grade faux wood blind option that competes with the large box stores such as The Home Depot and Lowes. Faux wood blinds blend with most interior designs, and while they're not fancy to most, they serve a purpose of offering privacy, some insulation, and a good price point. It's not uncommon for a new homeowner to choose a mixture of window treatments for their home. Perhaps shutters on the front of the house, faux wood blinds in the children’s bedrooms, blackout roller shades in the media room, natural shades in the kitchen and breakfast area, and Mezzanine shades in the open, common areas. Your window treatment professional will work with you to design a window treatment portfolio that will meet your needs visually as well as budgetarily.
If you’re in the market for high-end window fashions and always push the envelope on home fashions, you may be the perfect candidate for our Mezzanine Layered Shades or Overture Sheer Shades. Both products are trend-setting, jaw dropping window fashions. Their clean lines, colors, and textures are welcomed into a variety of interior designs. Mezzanine layered shades offer a near “perfect” window treatment as it does the work of both shades and blinds in one product. A Mezzanine shade can be raised to a fully open position, where the entire shade is out of the way (or view) of the outside. When lowered, it can be lowered to any point in the window, either in an open or closed position. The Mezzanine shade has alternating solid and sheer fabrics that slide in front of each other, offering a variety of privacy, light filtering, and design options. Mezzanine layered shades are more expensive than most blind options, but less expensive than shutters. Mezzanine layered shades are one of the most gorgeous, luxurious window covering options around. Not all layered shades are created equal. The housing, internal parts and mechanisms all play a role in how long the shades will last. We work with manufacturers that bring design, beauty and quality to the table. Stop by our local showroom to see and feel the difference in our layered shade products.
The entire window treatment market is moving towards automation. Clients want their window treatments to be controlled by their Smartphones or home automation systems, just like they want to see inside their refrigerator while at their at the market or close their garage door from the office. Depending on the goals of the customer, motorized shades and blinds offer convenience, peace of mind, and a bit of a wow factor. Controlled with a remote control or Smart device (phone or home automation system), motorization offers a convenience that pull cords just can’t. While motorization is considered a luxury item, much like shutters, there are instances where having motorized shades is convenient and practical. If you have hard to reach windows (vaulted windows or windows behind a large piece of furniture), you can understand how this modern-day convenience will make your life easier. Motorizing all your shades may be overkill for your situation but having one or two remote controlled window coverings may be smart. As the industry moves towards home automation, knowing which type of motorization to choose can be tricky. If you’re having a home built, you may want to have the builder run electrical to your windows, making the options for motorized window coverings a long-term solution. When choosing motorization for an existing home, the options are reduced by what is available behind the wall. Many homeowners that opt for motorized windows choose battery powered solutions. This makes motorization available to just about every type of window. The downside to battery powered shades is the ongoing maintenance costs. Choosing battery powered shades for a home with 36 windows may be an expense that a homeowner doesn’t wish to deal with. It’s possible to have an electrician run power to the windows so that shades can plug in, meaning they're powered with AC electricity vs. DC batteries. It’s important to explore the best motorization options for you when considering motorized shades and blinds as your new window treatment solution. We're here to answer any questions and help in any way we can.
