4 Reasons to Consider Indoor Shutters for your Las Vegas Home
If you are looking to add new window treatments to your Las Vegas home, there are plenty of wonderful options to choose from. You can’t go wrong with traditional blinds or shades, especially with the many varieties that our team at Nevada Shutters & Blinds has to offer. However, some homeowners want something a little bit different from blinds and shades. If you are looking to install all new window coverings in your Las Vegas home, but aren’t sure if blinds or shades are what you want, then you may benefit from installing interior shutters. Shutters are a great alternative to standard window coverings because they offer a number of unique benefits. If you are having trouble selecting window treatments for your Nevada home or if you know the basics of what you are looking for but need help ironing out the details, contact our friendly and knowledgeable staff today for a free in-home design consultation and estimate today!
We offer a number of window treatments that can help increase your home’s energy efficiency, but indoor shutters are among the best. Whether you choose wood or polycore shutters, they are both thick enough to create an insulating layer inside your window frame. Additionally, because they are actually set into your window frame, they create fewer gaps in between your window and your home, reducing the amount of air that can flow between your home and the outside world. These insulating features of shutters add energy efficiency to your home by reducing heat transfer. On hot summer days, your interior shutters can help keep your home cool by keeping your air-conditioned air inside and creating a barrier from the hot sun. This added insulation reduces the amount of work your HVAC unit has to do to keep your home comfortable, ultimately saving you money on your energy expenses.
All of our window treatments are designed to offer a degree of visual appeal to your home. However, shutters are the only ones that actually add a new architectural element to your home. Whether you choose the classic, striking look of wooden shutters or opt for a composite alternative, you can be sure that your interior shutters will add interest and beauty to every room. Plus, because they are installed in your windows and visible to passersby, interior shutters can actually add curb appeal to your home as well. The beauty of indoor shutters will surely enhance your home’s appeal, inside and out, and can even make your home more marketable if you ever decide you want to list it.
The durable quality of interior shutters is one of the biggest benefits of having them installed. Blinds or shades are beautiful options for many homes, but some households require something more sturdy. In busy or full households, especially those with children or pets, blinds can become bent and broken and shades can get torn. The thick, sturdy materials used to construct indoor shutters make them much stronger than other window coverings. Plus, they can last for decades. If you want to see your indoor shutters last a lifetime, you simply have to ensure they are properly cleaned and maintained. Wood shutters do require some extra care and attention when compared with polycore shutters, and may not hold up to long-term exposure to moisture, but with the right placement and care you can rest assured they will make your home beautiful for many years to come. Of course, if you don’t want to have to worry about placement or maintenance, then polycore shutters can offer you, even more, peace of mind and durability than wood shutters. No matter what material you choose for your Las Vegas shutters, Nevada Shutters & Blinds can make sure that your custom shutters are designed to last!
The built-in nature of shutters offers superior lighting control to many other window treatments. Plus, the slats are easy to adjust on a louver. From completely closed, to open at a slight angle, to fully opened slats, you have a wide range of options to control the lighting in your home. If you really want full natural lighting, just swing open your shutters altogether and let the sun stream in. As an added bonus, this degree of light control also happens to be the amount of privacy control that shutters can add to your home.
If you are looking for added energy efficiency, lighting control, durability, or visual appeal, interior shutters might be the perfect window treatment option for your Las Vegas home. Contact Nevada Shutters & Blinds today to schedule your free in-home consultation and estimate!
