Announcing Our Spring Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Darik Neilson We’re moving through springtime here in Las Vegas, but we haven’t forgotten about our regularly scheduled Share Your Shutters contest. This season’s winner is Tonya S., who shared some photos of her home that truly show the benefit shutters can bring to a home. Tonya’s house features some gorgeous new Polywood® plantation shutters in her dining room. Because the shutters are shut, you can really get a glimpse of how much control plantation shutters really give you over your lighting. Envision that dining room with a slightly softer light; it’s almost a picture-perfect setting for a romantic candlelit dinner, right? With plantation shutters in your home like Tonya has, you can capture the mood you want at any time of day. Also worth mentioning is how the white shutters complement the white trim on the baseboard and the white ceiling. Those matching whites let the black wood furniture and the hardwood floor’s texture stand out even more.That wasn’t Tonya’s only photo submission, however. Below is another photo she submitted of her new sliding barn door shutter! We love this barn door shutter for a lot of reasons. The first reason is that it looks fantastic. The rustic look of the wood with that modern jet black hardware above give a timeless yet comfortable look. What we like even more than the shutters’ looks is how practical it is. Her barn door shutter sits off the window frame, so it can control the light levels while still letting the window open and close.Because the shutter sits on the frame, Tonya can still make use of her window sill. For example, if she wanted to set a flower on the sill to get sunlight, she’s even able to close the shutter to let it catch some rays while keeping her home as dim or bright as she wants.Tonya tells us that this is the third time they’ve had Sunburst install window treatments for her home, and we want to thank her for continuing to choose us for all her window design needs. For being selected as our Share Your Shutters winner this quarter, Tonya received a $100 gift card to a restaurant in her area.If you think your shutters should be featured on our next Share Your Shutters contest, we want to see them! Share a photo of your favorite room with shutters with the hashtag #ShareYourShutters, or submit a photo to our Facebook page. We’d love to feature some shutters from a Nevadan in our next update!Or if looking at Tonya’s home makes you feel like your home is missing a little something, we want to help.
