Home shutters have a surprisingly long history dating back to ancient Greece. Shutters have played a similar role as long as they have existed, namely to provide light control, privacy, and ventilation. Today shutters still function this way with the additional benefit of providing insulation for your home. The added insulation power of shutters can lower your heating and cooling costs, even more so if you choose a high quality synthetic shutter.
Why Are Home Shutters Popular?
Home shutters, in particular plantation shutters, are a popular window treatment choice among homeowners as they add function and style to a room. While shutters are no longer the sole barrier between bugs, animals, rain, and thieves and your home, they still play a crucial role in adding privacy and blocking sunlight. There are a wide range of shutter styles available to fit the décor of your home, as well as your budget.
