Two popular window treatment options are blinds and shutters. While similar, there are a few key differences to keep in mind if you’re considering either. Shutters offer beautiful architectural design, operate on a hinge and are usually made of beautiful hardwoods or poly-satin compounds. They’re also an ideal solution if your window is exposed to extreme heat, humidity or other extreme weather conditions. Blinds on the other hand, can be quite versatile, are operated by a cord in most cases and are available in a series of materials from aluminum to plastic. They also happen to be more cost efficient given their simpler structure in comparison to shutters.
Most importantly, keep in mind that quality window finishes add style, warmth and even added value to your home.
