Investing in Custom Interior Shutters

February 1, 2013

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. Installing custom interior shutters is an investment in your home as they last longer than lesser quality, premade shutters.

Plantation Shutters

The Benefits of Installing Plantation Shutters

January 7, 2013

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.

Danmer Custom Shutters can custom design, manufacture, and install both hardwood and synthetic plantation shutters in your home. Schedule a free in home design consultation today to get started.

Wood Shutters

High Quality Hardwood Shutters

January 1, 2013

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.


Using Shutters in Home Decorating

December 8, 2012

Whether you are trying to breathe new life into your space, increase the value because you are trying to sell or just bring warmth to a utilitarian room, using shutters in home decorating is ideal. This is an effortless way to make a home more move-in friendly for home buyers, or more inviting for your guests.

Choosing the Right Shutters for Home Decorating

Many people who start exploring shutters in home decorating stores and in magazines are pretty blown away by the selection that is available. There are many people who are under the impression that shutters are only available in those cheap looking, skinny louver plastic and faux wood varieties sold in stores. When they stumble upon us here at Danmer, the often act like its Christmas because we have styles most people are not familiar with.

If you want a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, you should have a picture transposed or etched on the back of your shutters so your windows act like a piece of art when the  shutters are closed. If you need light control, check out some of our Hunter Douglas varieties. For maximum privacy, explore our plantation varieties. We have something for every need that will complement every home and business.

Home Shutters

Increase Security with Home Shutters

December 4, 2012

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.


Create Drama With These Interior Shutter Styles

November 30, 2012

Although there are a ton of different interior shutter styles available, there are a few that are so dynamic, they can easily become a focal point that every home needs. This means that while doubling as pieces of art, they are still controlling light and helping to decrease energy bills.

Popular Interior Shutter Styles

  • Masterpiece – These are some of the most popular interior shutter styles with those who really need a dramatic piece of art in their room. A picture can either be printed or engraved on the back of the shutters, so when they are closed, they really do turn into art. A picture is a little more bold while engraved is more subtle; both are equally as beautiful.
  • Skyline Gliding Window Panels – Combine gorgeous fabric with a revolutionary hardware system. Choose from 187 different material and color combinations.
  • Silhouette Window Shadings – These are perfect for awkward shaped windows that are arched or angled as well as French doors and sliding glass doors.
  • Duette Honeycomb Shades – Although simple in design, these shades come in over 400 color and material combinations to really complement your space.

The Look of Hardwood Shutters Without the Trees

November 28, 2012

If you are like many others, you are choosing alternatives to wood, especially if you don’t know if the company selling it is responsible in where they receive it. Animal habitat is being taken away at an alarming rate from forests that the Earth really cannot afford to lose. Some companies make a point to know where the wood comes from, others do not.

Here at Danmer, we understand the growing concern over wood furnishings, but we also understand that nearly everyone loves the look of shutters made from wood. This is why we have created our Thermalite shutters.

They Look Like Hardwood Shutters

It is nearly impossible to tell the difference between hardwood shutters and Thermalite varieties, but rest-assured, no trees are used in their production. In fact, we choose to use recycled materials, making them a very environmentally friendly option. Your guests will never be able to tell they aren’t real wood, yet they are fire-retardant, water-resistant and nontoxic.

Should You Have a Shutter Custom Made for Your Storefront?

August 17, 2012

Have you been trying to decide what to do with your storefront window? You probably love the natural light, but then for a few hours a day there is likely a blinding glare created, especially if the rays reflect off any metal racks or mirrors in the store. Not to mention, this increases the store temperature so the air conditioning has to work harder. If these are not good enough reasons to have a shutter custom made, perhaps you should think about potential thieves lurking in the window when no one is around. Alternatively, how do you feel when you are there late doing inventory yourself, knowing that someone else could be viewing you as a potential target?

A Custom Shutter Adds a Point of Interest

Many people are not aware that a custom shutter can be made with a picture on it. Therefore, when you close the shutters, customers in your store notice a beautiful piece of art in the window. This is a powerful marketing tool because it makes your store much more memorable than your competition down the road.

Custom Wooden Shutters for Your Meeting Room

August 16, 2012

Whether your meeting room welcomes international partners or local distributors, it should be warm, comfortable and sophisticated. This is a room in your company where others should feel like guests and you naturally become more in control, like the gracious host. There is just something about rich wood that is very comforting to most. It is like curling up next to a warm fire or getting comfortable on a porch swing; some things just immediately put you at ease.

The Reasons to Add Custom Wooden Shutters to Your Meeting Room

  • Light Control – Not only do you not want a glare shining in the eyes of a future investor, if you use slides or videos, you need the room to be dark. Custom wooden shutters offer superior light control.
  • Interesting – Individuals entering your room will immediately be eager to hear what you have to say because anyone who takes so much pride in their window treatments must be pretty important and even a little mysterious.
  • Easy to Clean – Cheap plastic and fabric are both nightmares to clean. The last thing you need is for someone to see a layer of dust on your blinds as the sun shines through. Not to mention, fabric curtains are magnets for dust. Shutters can easily be wiped cleaned frequently with minimal effort.
