Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains offer a sense of sophistication and vibrance to your rooms. They also work well with window shutters in Memphis, generating a statement in any room.

You may go with one, or use both to complement your interior design. Curtains may seem like a comfortable pick, but there are some things to look at before you make up your mind.

What Makes Louver Shop of Memphis’s Shutters Noteworthy

Here are some proof of why shutters are nice additions to your home.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to suit your windows, regardless of size or shape. This creates fewer gaps in your windows for chilly outdoor air to sneak through and warm indoor air to slip out.

This is specifically essential since windows are the largest culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy approximates they can let out up to 30% of your family’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more effectively than wood shutters. That’s potential energy savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

In the warmer times, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This lets you have more power over ventilation without your window treatments clattering in the breeze.

2. Increased Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the adaptability that shutters offer. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you fix your shutters just how you prefer them. All while prohibiting the tilt bar from closing off your view.

3. Custom Crafted for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Memphis, we build shutters to accurately fit your windows. You can select your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Painless to Clean

Shutters are easy to clean. All you have to have is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may need more difficult washing or pricey dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer this Winter with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem more comfortable, plantation shutters offer a gorgeous look that can keep your electricity bills down.
