If you have a bakery in your local downtown area, you likely showcase some of your sweet treats in the front window to tempt everyone walking by. After all, who can resist an artistically decorated cupcake or holiday cookie?
The problem is that the sun can shine through the front window and melt your mini masterpieces. This also raises the temperature inside as well. Custom wooden shutters would be perfect for this window!
Masterpiece Custom Wooden Shutters are Ideal
If you are not familiar with this variety of custom wooden shutters, prepare to be excited! The masterpiece blinds we have here at Danmer allow you to create a mural on the inside. Therefore, when they are open, they just look like regular window treatments, but when they are closed, they can display a mural. You could have desserts, the name of you bakery or any other picture transposed to the blinds so they double as art when they are closed.
If you want to be able to control the light in your room, but you just don’t love the look of traditional blinds, you may want to consider our cellular shutter styles. They are stunning to look at and bring something unique to a space. Not to mention, they are available in a multitude of colors, so even if you want a moss shade for a spa or cotton candy color for a little girl’s room, you will find them in a color that will complement the space beautifully.
What’s So Great About Cellular Shutter Styles?
Cellular shutter styles are quite different than what most people picture when think of window treatments. They feature honeycomb cells that are able to effectively block most of the sun’s damaging rays while creating a nice glow in a room, rather than turning to pitch black, where you are forced to turn a light on and waste energy in the middle of the day.
Unlike other cellular blinds that typically feel stiff, cheap and paper-like, the fabrics we use here at Danmer are high-quality, and you don’t have to touch them to know the difference; you can see it too.
Have you been trying to decide what to do with your storefront window? You probably love the natural light, but then for a few hours a day there is likely a blinding glare created, especially if the rays reflect off any metal racks or mirrors in the store. Not to mention, this increases the store temperature so the air conditioning has to work harder. If these are not good enough reasons to have a shutter custom made, perhaps you should think about potential thieves lurking in the window when no one is around. Alternatively, how do you feel when you are there late doing inventory yourself, knowing that someone else could be viewing you as a potential target?
