Why Are Shutters the Most Sought After Window Treatment? For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window treatment to cover your windows. They tend to deteriorate over time with the strings giving way and the loops that hold the slats in place falling apart. In addition, they are difficult to clean. Shades offer an array of colors and unique patterns, transforming your window into artwork. By effortlessly pulling up the fabric of the shade, your full window is exposed and you can see out onto your Las Vegas neighborhood. Draperies also are available in a wide assortment of color, fabric, and patterns. They are a traditional option for a window treatment. Adding thick panels between the drapes and the window gives you light and temperature block-out capabilities. And unlike other window treatments, there’s no rush to clean draperies for five years. If you want a window treatment that lasts over 10 years, saves you actual bucks on your energy bills, and looks charming on your windows, shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but they’re also lovely and energy efficient. Actually, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than an equivalent wood shutter. That’s energy savings you will miss out on with any other window treatment. No other window treatment gives you control over privacy and light as plantation shutters do. And with their large louvers, Polywood plantation shutters give your room a clean contemporary feel whether they’re closed or open.
