Plantation Shutters offer a warm, clean alternative to fabric window treatments. When you choose plantation shutters for your home or office, you are making a statement about style and sophistication that adds value to your property and your interior design. Here are a few benefits of choosing custom plantation shutters:

Custom Design Means Value and Fit

Our custom shutters come from the leading manufacturers like Norman Shutters and Hunter Douglas. They naturally add value to your home or office because they are designed with quality materials that will last and operate with ease for years to come. Because they are designed to fit your windows perfectly, you are guaranteed a window covering that looks like it was built with your room. Custom shutters are designed with little light gap, making them one of the most energy efficient window treatments available. Custom shutters also fit windows that other window treatments do not. Perfect for odd shaped windows or specialty windows, shutters work well in a variety of situations. Shutters operate well on French doors and sliding glass doors also, so you can easily match window coverings throughout your room or home.

Plantation Shutters Are Designed For Any Room

When you choose custom shutters you can also choose not only the color or stain of your wood shutters or hybrid shutters, but you can also choose the louver size. Large 4” slats give you more view through capability at your windows and create a modern look that is quite impressive. Custom shutters come in three basic materials. Wood shutters are made from American hard woods and can be painted or stained to match existing wood in your home. They are carefully hand crafted for quality and detail. Faux wood shutters are more durable. They come in a few white, off white and neutral colors. They are designed to wear well even in harsh conditions. They are also easier on your budget. Hybrid shutters or composite shutters are faux wood shutters that are made from a blend of natural wood and man-made materials. They are more durable than real wood shutters but look similar. They are offered in more colors than faux wood shutters.

Plantation Shutters Make Decorating Easy

Shutters add a timeless beauty to your surroundings that make them easy to decorate with. They fit nicely in both traditional settings and more contemporary. Shutters can be mounted either inside or outside your window frame allowing them to hide any imperfections. You also have a variety of ways to operate your shutters if space is a problem or direction is an issue. Panels can be stacked together for larger windows or sliding glass doors. Sliding tracks are also available for doorways. Shutters can be positioned on the bottom half of the window or cover your entire windows including arches at the top. They look amazing all by themselves or with a custom drapery or valance.

If you own multiple window treatments in your home, you recognize the great benefits they provide. The style and design options are nearly endless, and they offer a great range of privacy and light control options. You may think your home cannot get more comfortable or convenient, but if you haven’t tried motorized shades in your home, you might be missing out. Motorized shades provide the ultimate level of comfort for your home, all with you and your family in mind.

Having window treatments throughout your home can feel quite like a luxury. But have you ever thought about the length of time you take to adjust your window treatments throughout the day? If you have multiple window treatments or a larger home, this can sometimes feel like a mundane task. With motorized shades, your shades will adjust themselves automatically; you don’t even need to think about lifting a finger. Simply pre-program your shades to operate at a certain time of the day, or even customize the times they operate and adjust throughout the week. Some window treatments can even be pre-programmed to open when the sun rises and close when the sun sets, all based on your time zone. With motorized window treatments, you can enjoy the comfort and beauty of your shades, and now the seamless functionality.

Have you ever forgotten to adjust your window treatments before you left the house? If you are gone to work all day, especially if your home is located in close proximity to others, leaving your shades up can make your home more susceptible to theft. If you have ever found yourself in this situation, motorized shades can provide a solution. Most motorized shades allow you to operate them away from home via a smartphone app. The next time you need to double check if your home is properly secured, simply pull out your smartphone from any location with Wi-Fi and give your home some privacy. Additionally, most motorized shades are compatible with smart home technology so all your security needs are met.

Above all, have motorized shades makes everyday living in your home more comfortable. Not only can you pre-program shades, but you can fix that annoying glare on your television without even getting up from the couch. When it’s time to rest, close your shades from the comfort of your bed with the touch of a button. If your home has small children running around, you can rest assured they will stay safe with motorized window treatments, as most come cordless. This also allows for a cleaner, sharper look at your window.

Blinds are a classic window treatment that you can find in most of today’s homes. There are many styles of blinds to fit into your home’s décor, and custom blinds can come with certain operating systems that make them an even more convenient addition. Blinds can be horizontal like you might commonly think of, or they can be vertical, which works best for larger expanses of glass. Read on to learn more about selecting the right type of window blinds for your home.

When you think of blinds, you may be tempted to imagine white aluminum blinds that are very standard, but blinds can be so much more than that in terms of style. There are many different types of materials and colors available for blinds, depending on what you are looking for. Wood blinds are a great option for a neutral colored window treatment that will also add warmth and beauty to your home. For a more affordable option, sometimes a faux wood or hybrid option is the best route to take. These types of blinds typically have the look and feel of real wood, and can even be more durable in terms of withstanding exposure to heat. Non-wood blinds, like aluminum for example, typically have a great color selection that makes it easy to incorporate them into your home’s current décor.

Horizontal blinds, the most common orientation of blinds, are typically designed for the regular sized windows in your home. Vertical blinds , on the other hand, are better suited for larger windows or sliding glass doors because they provide easier operation. No matter which orientation your home’s windows need, there are so many customizable options to make them stylish and dramatically transform any room in your home.

Blinds are great for giving you privacy when you need it most, and some blinds feature no cord holes so you can block out any light from entering into your home and you do not have to deal with annoying specks of light shining through. When you do prefer light streaming into your home, horizontal blinds, as well as vertical blinds, offer great degrees of light control. Open them fully to really brighten up a room in your home, or partially open them for a little daylight and still get a view of the outside. For even more options in light control, opt for a blind with wider slats. This lets more light stream in and additionally offers a modern and sleek look.

At Cover Up Blinds , we offer great quality options in window treatments that include blinds, shutters, and drapes. In addition to our product offering, we also install your window treatments for you to make sure the job is done professionally. We would love to set up an appointment in your home or office to help you select the window treatments that are right for your home. Contact us today!
