Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains add a sense of refinement and vibrance to your space. They also look great with window shutters in Birmingham, creating a statement in any living space.

You may go with one, or use the two to complement your interior design. Curtains may seem like a natural pick, but there are a few things to go over before you make up your mind.

What Makes Louver Shop of Birmingham’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some examples of why shutters are great additions to your window coverings.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to fit your windows, never mind the size or shape. This leaves fewer places in your windows for frigid outdoor air to come through and heated indoor air to leave.

This is specifically essential since windows are the biggest culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated they can bleed up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood shutters. That’s potential energy savings you can recognize on your heating and cooling bill year-round.

In the summer, you can open your windows while keeping your shutters open or shut. This offers more influence over ventilation without your window treatments moving in the wind.

2. Better Light Control

Considering curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t possess the adaptability that shutters extend. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control allows you to set your shutters just how you prefer them. All while keeping the tilt bar from blocking your view.

3. Custom Built for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Birmingham, we craft shutters to specifically fit your windows. You can determine your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Simple to Clean

Shutters are not difficult to clean. All you want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand time-consuming washing or costly dry cleaning fairly often.

Keep Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room feel warmer, plantation shutters create an upscale look that can keep your electricity costs down.
