Advantages of Choosing Shutters for Your Windows

When you are planning the interior design of your commercial space, don’t treat the window coverings as an afterthought. Commercial window treatments in San Jose should look good, be easy, to clean, and stand up to routine wear and tear. Drapes, blinds, and shades are fine for private spaces and homes, but shutters offer many advantages in commercial public spaces such as motels, offices, and common areas in apartment buildings. Read on to learn more about the advantages of shutters.

Window Shutters Shutters Are Versatile

You might not think of shutters as a modern window treatment, but the latest commercial designs can complement almost any decor. For a commercial space, choose plantation shutters. Unlike the more old fashioned shutters you might see in East Coast homes, plantation shutters have very wide louvers, so when they are open they let in plenty of light. A set of plain white shutters will look just as good in a contemporary lobby as they will in a traditionally appointed hotel room, but you can also choose from several different colors depending on your decorating scheme.

Shutters Are Durable

Window shutters can be made from a variety of materials, including solid painted wood, resin-coated wood, or durable imitation wood. Since they are very solid, they are much more durable than blinds. Blinds are excellent window coverings for home installation, but the heavy use they get in public spaces makes them less than ideal for this application—the cords can get tangled and the slats can easily become damaged.

Shutters Are Easy to Clean

Other window coverings are much more troublesome to clean than plantation shutters. The wide separation between the louvers on shutters in the open position provides plenty of room for a duster or a vacuum, and since they are made from solid wood it’s hard to damage them when cleaning. Drapes must be taken down and sent to a professional for an expensive cleaning, and blinds can sometimes be damaged with regular dustings. Durable shutters, on the other hand, can be wiped down weekly or daily to keep them clean and dust-free.
