Why Are Shutters the Most Wanted Window Treatment? For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window treatment to cover your windows. Chances are they will deteriorate over time with the strings breaking and the loops that hold the slats in place falling apart. Not to mention, they are difficult to clean. Shades offer a host of colors and unique patterns, turning your window into artwork. Just by pulling up the fabric of the shade, your entire window is exposed and you can see out onto your Boise neighborhood. Draperies also come in a wide variety of color, fabric, and patterns. They are a traditional choice for a window treatment. Adding thick panels between the drapes and the window provides you with 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 charming on your windows, shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but they’re also exquisite and energy efficient. As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter. That’s energy savings you won’t find with any other window treatment. When it comes to control over privacy and light, plantation shutters are unmatched. And with their large louvers, Polywood plantation shutters give your space a clean contemporary feel whether they’re closed or open.
