Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains offer an ambience of sophistication and vibrance to your rooms. They also look great with window shutters in Baltimore, making a statement in any room.

You may like one, or use the two to complement your interior design. Curtains could seem like a natural selection, but there are a couple things to consider before you make your selection.

What Makes Louver Shop of Maryland’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some proof of why shutters are great additions to your home.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to conform to your windows, no matter the size or shape. This leaves fewer gaps in your windows for cool outdoor air to squeeze through and heated indoor air to escape.

This is notably critical since windows are the biggest culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy determined they can leak up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood shutters. That’s potential energy savings you can see on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

In the summer, you can open your windows while keeping your shutters open or shut. This affords you more control over ventilation without your window treatments jangling in the breeze.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t possess the adaptability that shutters offer. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control grants you the ability to regulate your shutters just how you want them. All while stopping the tilt bar from ruining your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Maryland, we craft shutters to accurately fit your windows. You can decide your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Easy to Clean

Shutters are not complicated to clean. All you have to have is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand more difficult washing or high-priced dry cleaning fairly often.

Keep Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room appear comfy, plantation shutters give a gorgeous look that can keep your heating and cooling charges down.
