As Fall slowly comes into homes bringing cooler temperatures and thoughts of holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving, it is the perfect time to consider your window treatments. Maybe you’re going to have people over the holidays and you want your home to be in tip top shape or possibly after all of the summer fun, you now have time to kick back in your home and take stock of what parts need a little updating. Whatever your thoughts are, now is a great time to consider some new design ideas for fall.
1. Energy Efficient Shutters – One of the best ideas for upgrading your window coverings is Thermalite™ shutters from Danmer. Thermalite™ shutters are the best synthetic shutters available. They look and feel just like wood, but they are longer lasting and they insulate more than two times as much as wood. Not only will you save on heating and cooling costs, if you choose these smart, eco-friendly shutters, you may even be eligible for a federal tax credit.
2. Plantation Shutters on Patio Doors – Whether you have French doors, sliding doors or any other style of door, adding plantation shutters to your doors will add a bit of privacy for when the relatives come to give thanks and eat some sweet potato pie. They will also help keep the cold out when you’re carving pumpkins and getting the little ones ready for trick or treating. Don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of space or if your door is a bit unusual. Danmer can customize shutters to fit any door or window.
3. Masterpiece Shutters – Did you go somewhere magical on vacation over the summer and you aren’t quite ready to let it go? Or do you have a favorite photo that you would love to see larger than life? With Danmer Masterpiece Shutters you choose a photograph or art and it is reprinted in high quality onto your shutters. When the louvers are closed, it creates a seamless image for you to enjoy year round.
4. Double or split shutters – If you are in the market for new shutters, consider double hung shutters for windows where you want a little more versatility. They work great in bathrooms and kitchens where you may want light, but you also want a bit of privacy. Open the top set while leaving the bottom ones closed to let in air and light without having the entire window exposed. This style can also help control heating and cooling costs because you do not need to open the entire area just to get a little light in.
Any time of the year is a good time to upgrade and redecorate. Let the design experts at Danmer help you with all of your questions regarding high quality window coverings.
