Why Interior Shutters Make Great Window Treatments

by Lucas Cox

Window treatments come in so many different varieties. There are curtains, drapes, shades, and several types of blinds. One window treatment option that is becoming more popular is interior shutters. Years ago, you barely saw them, but these days, people seem to be opting for them more often. So, what makes them such sought-after window treatments? Here are some of their key benefits. 

They are semi-permanent

Interior shutters are generally installed by a professional. They have to be securely mounted inside your window frames using a few specialized brackets and screws. Once they are in place, you really don't take them down. Doing so involves undoing a few screws and brackets, so it is not impossible, but it's not something that is done on a regular basis. As such, interior shutters become more of a permanent feature of your home rather than a temporary decorative element.

They are easy to clean

Window treatments, in general, are infamous for being hard to clean. A lot of drapes and curtains need to be dry cleaned. Some shades can only be wiped clean with specialized cleansers, and cleaning a floppy shade isn't easy. Interior shutters, on the other hand, are easy to wipe clean with a cloth and some all-purpose cleaning solution. Simply spray your cloth, and drag it along one rung of the shutters at a time. The dust should come away easily.

They do a thorough job of blocking the sun and offering privacy

Window treatments really exist to serve two purposes: regulate sunlight and offer privacy. Interior shutters do both of these things well. When they are closed, they are pretty solid, and they really do keep people from being able to see into your home. They also block sunlight more effectively than most curtains or blinds. This makes them a good choice for bedrooms, bathrooms, and even living rooms.

They are easy to operate

With interior shutters, there are no complicated strings to pull. You usually open and close them by flipping a little lever up or down. Some more modern ones are even motorized. You can push a button on the wall or even on a smartphone app, and the shutters open or close with a small motor.

If you are looking for window treatments that are sturdy, easy to operate, and good at blocking light and the view, then interior shutters are a wise choice. Contact a local interior shutter installation service to learn more.
