Have Shutters Custom Made For Your Kitchen

In most homes, the kitchen is the most well used room. It’s where everyone gathers to prepare a meal, discuss the day’s events, and more. When it comes to decorating your kitchen, your concern is mostly for the functional pieces like the appliances. An important aspect of putting together a kitchen is choosing the right window coverings. Many kitchens have windows above sinks where steam and water will end up splashing onto the window treatments. One popular option for this type of window is to have shutters custom made in Thermalite synthetic material. Thermalite shutters are water-resistant and easy to clean with an anti-static quality that repels dust. Is your kitchen window over a stove top? Having Thermalite shutters custom made is great for this window location as well because Thermalite shutters are fire retardant.

Investing in Custom Interior Shutters

The right window treatments can instantly transform a room and tie together your interior decorating scheme. Custom interior shutters are a window treatment that can work with many décors and in many different types of homes. Why should you have interior shutters custom made rather than just pick them up from a home improvement store? When you are looking to truly transform your room, whether with a complete redecorate or by adding one simple feature, custom interior shutters are your best bet. In most cases, it’s a waste of money to buy premade interior shutters as they tend to be slightly too big or slightly too small for your windows.

The Benefits of Installing Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters do more than add to the visual appeal of a room in your home. Installing plantation shutters provide privacy when you need it, allow you to control the amount of sunlight let into a room, and can even add to the insulation of a room. When you install plantation shutters into the windows of your home, you are adding the aesthetics inside and outside of the home as well as installing a feature that will last for years to come. Unlike other types of window treatments, wooden and synthetic plantation shutters are built and guaranteed to last. It’s important though, when shopping for plantation shutters, to only purchase them from a manufacturer who cares about quality.

High Quality Hardwood Shutters

When you are in the market for hardwood shutters, you want to be sure to buy shutters made of the highest quality wood. Cheaper shutters made of inferior wood have the tendency to bleed through their finish or discolor their stain due to high resin content. Higher quality hardwood shutters tend to not only look better than their cheaper counterparts, but they also last longer, giving them higher value in the long run.

Buy your hardwood shutters from Danmer Custom Shutters. All of Danmer’s harwood shutters are made of the most durable, furniture grade basswood. The wood is tight grained, with a low resin content so that they are guaranteed not to bleed. All of Danmer’s hardwood shutters are given a Diamond undercoat to seal out all moisture.

All hardwood shutters from Danmer come with a lifetime warranty against bleeding as well as on all moving parts.

Increase Security with Home Shutters

Although curtains, drapes and sheers are lovely to look at, they do not always give you the privacy that you need to keep your family secure. At night, when a light is on in a home, it allows strangers to see in from pretty far distances. If you have home shutters that fit properly, it eliminates this invasion of privacy. This is extremely important for single females and families with children of any age. Not to mention, if an intruder tries to come in through a window in the middle of the night, there is an increased chance that you will hear them if you have blinds.

You Can Still Hang Curtains with Home Shutters

Some people assume that if you have home shutters then you can’t decorate with curtains, but this is not true. Although the shutters we have here at Danmer are certainly stylish enough to standalone, there is no reason you can’t hang curtains, sheers, a valance or anything else in front of them. There are plenty of rods that offer the depth that is needed to hang these fabric pieces in front so the shutters are still easy to operate behind them.
