How much do interior shutters cost?
With so many options available, custom shutter pricing varies. A variety of options for style, number of windows, materials, cut-outs, finishing and more can influence a price greatly. Southern Shutter Home offers a free measurement and design consultation to provide the most accurate pricing.
What purposes do interior shutters serve?
Interior shutters are great at blocking light and providing privacy to a room. They also add to a home’s aesthetic with a timeless look and can increase your home’s value.
Can interior shutters increase my home’s value?
Yes! Aside from enhancing your home’s appearance, custom interior shutters send the message: “I care about my home.” Custom shutters show potential buyers that you’ve invested in your home by selecting the best quality. This reflects in appraisals and in the first impressions of potential buyers.
Are interior shutters in style?
Interior shutters never go out of style! While certain styles go through spikes in popularity, Southern Shutter Home focuses on providing quality shutters that stand up to the test of time and maintain a classic look no matter how long they’ve been on a home.
Do shutters darken a room?
Yes and no. Plantation shutters make a room as light or dark as you want it to be. By adjusting the louvers or slats in plantation shutters in either an open or closed position, you will achieve your desired amount of light into the room or block the light. This aspect makes interior shutters an excellent choice for bedrooms and bathrooms alike.
Can I install your shutters myself?
Shutters by Southern Shutter Home include professional installation by our team of experts. Much more goes into installing shutters than you initially may think, which is why our shutter pros will measure for your shutters and then install to ensure a proper fit and installation.
Are interior shutters better than blinds?
Shutters and blinds have their pros and cons. For example: Blinds are more affordable than shutters, but they don’t last as long or add the same value to a home that shutters do. On the other hand, blinds are a great option for a shorter-term home that could use privacy, insulation and comfort. Overall, Southern Shutter Home only produces quality products, making either option one you can count on to improve the appearance of your home.
What is the best material for shutters?
We offer natural wood and composite shutters at Southern Shutter Home. Each option has advantages depending on their use, but we stand behind both of our natural wood and composite shutters by offering a lifetime warranty on all custom shutters.
Are plantation shutters good for bedrooms?
Plantation shutters are more than good for bedrooms – they’re great! They offer variable privacy and light with the ease of adjusting a louver. A simple adjustment can block out light on weekend mornings or brighten your bedroom throughout the day. They also offer fantastic insulation, keeping your room at the perfect temperature while you sleep.
Do I need curtains if I have interior shutters?
Adding curtains to shuttered windows is purely a personal style decision. While interior shutters are great at controlling light without necessarily using other treatments, drapes or curtains are great options, if you want an extra touch of color or design style.
How long does installation take?
Depending on the size of your home and the number of shutters being installed, the process is relatively quick and is typically completed in 1- 2 days. Our installation professionals are always courteous, experienced and respectful of our clients and their homes.
Should all windows have shutters?
Not all windows necessarily need shutters. We often recommend a mix of shutters, blinds, shades and drapes depending on many factors. For example, we love the added privacy and light control of plantation shutters in a bedroom or bathroom, but our client might have certain needs or wants that make other options better for them. The desired effect for a modern smart-home may include remote-control shades or the need for the perfect drapes to complete the home décor. No matter what our clients’ needs or desires, we are always here to recommend the appropriate product for your space. Southern Shutter Home offers free design services and we create products designed specifically to our clients’ specifications.
Do interior shutters reduce outside noise?
Interior shutters are great for keeping noise pollution to a minimum. With thick and durable louvers, shutters absorb noise and create a seal on your window for better energy efficiency. This makes them perfect for homes near busy roads or centrally located in town.
Do shutters provide insulation?
Shutters not only insulate your windows, but they can also be added to insulate doors. They are great for keeping the cold weather out in the winter and obstructing the heat in the summer. This saves homeowners on their energy bill, while adding an extra selling feature to a home. With the correct selection, you can boast energy efficiency and achieve a classic design element for your home.
