    Blinds & Shades: How to Decorate Windows with Blinds

    Last updated 7 years ago

    Blinds and shades provide you with more than just decoration for your home—they also keep the sun out of your house during the summertime. Check out the video for more information.

    When you are looking for blinds to decorate windows, consider their function, privacy, fashion, and lift systems. Decide before you go to the store whether you want to filter light or darken a room. You should also try to find a color that will complement your interior. A continuous loop cord is a traditional lift system for blinds and shades, but you can also go with a top-down/bottom-up system or a power rise that utilizes a remote control.

    What Are the Benefits of Vinyl Shutters?

    Last updated 7 years ago

    Vinyl shutters can transform every room of your home. They are a low-maintenance window treatment that offers the look of real wood shutters without the hassle. Keep reading to learn more:


    Durability and Flexibility

    Unlike other types of blinds and window shades, vinyl shutters are extremely durable. They can also withstand a variety of environments, so they work well in both wet and dry climates. Vinyl shutters can be used in any room, including areas with high levels of humidity, like the bathroom. Since they are not painted, you will never need to deal with them chipping or peeling, warping, or cracking. They often come with lifetime warranties to guarantee their effectiveness, which makes them a worthwhile investment.

    Greater Insulation

    Since vinyl shutters are hollow, they will insulate your home better than other types of window coverings. Better insulation will help keep warm air outside during the summer and cool air outside during the winter, which can help lower your utility bills.

    Wide Selection of Styles and Colors

    Vinyl shutters are versatile and can fit with a wide range of home decors. Choose from styles like plantation shutters, board styles, and paneled versions. You can also select from different shades of white to create a look of real wood window treatments. Since they only require light dusting and cleaning with a gentle detergent, they can continue to look like new even years after you buy them.

    Sculpting Light with Blinds and Shutters

    Last updated 7 years ago

    Blinds and shutters give you the power to control the light in a room so you only get the amount and type of light that you want.  Take a look at these tips to help you use your shutters and blinds to sculpt the right light in each room of your home:

    Mellowed Light: Sometimes you want a small amount of light to filter into a room. Blinds and shutters give you the power to get a softer natural light. Since shutters are semi-opaque, meaning they block out most light but still let in a little along the gaps and edges, they mellow the light that is coming into the room. A plantation shutter is the perfect window treatment for your nursery, for example, because the filtered amount of light in the room won’t keep the baby awake but will still allow you to see where you are going when checking on your newborn.

    Bright Natural Light: Certain rooms in the house seem to come alive with natural light, which is another reason shutters work well in any room. Imagine having a family meal in the dining room while bathing in the last of the afternoon sun or painting in a sunroom that is conveniently filled with bright natural light. Use blinds and shutters to enhance the natural light in rooms that should be filled with brightness.

    Light Control: Shutters and blinds can also provide the right amount of darkness for rooms that work better without natural light. Combine window shades with blinds and shutters for an entertainment room to eliminate any glare on the television while you are trying to watch a movie or your favorite show.
