Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains provide an atmosphere of sophistication and vibrance to your home. They also look great with window shutters in Detroit, resulting in a statement in any room.

You may like one over the other, or use them together to complement your home design. Curtains may seem like a homey choice, but there are some things to think about before you decide.

Louver Shop of Metro Detroit offers a free-of-charge, in-home consultation that helps you make that choice. It’s not difficult to find out what fits with your home when we transport the showroom to your living room. We’ll go over the multiple options in an abundance of different styles, all with no charge or obligation. Organize yours today for local, individual service and an everything’s-included price quote.

What Makes Louver Shop of Metro Detroit’s Shutters Noteworthy

Here are some reasons why shutters are great additions to your space.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to conform to your windows, never mind the size or shape. This leaves fewer gaps in your windows for chilly outdoor temperatures to sneak through and heated indoor air to get out.

This is notably essential since windows are the worst culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated they can let out up to 30% of your house’s energy.

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

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

2. Increased Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t have the adaptability that shutters extend. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control allows you to fix your shutters just how you like them. All while stopping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Crafted for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Metro Detroit, we produce shutters to perfectly fit your windows. You can pick your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Easy to Clean

Shutters are easy to clean. All you need is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may call for time-consuming washing or high-priced dry cleaning fairly often.

Keep Warmer this Winter with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room appear cozier, plantation shutters offer a luxurious look that can keep your electricity expenses down.
