Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains offer a touch of sophistication and vibrance to your home. They also work well with window shutters in Charleston, resulting in a statement in any living space.

You may like just one style, or use the two to complement your interior design. Curtains might seem like a homey pick, but there are some things to think about before you make your selection.

Louver Shop of Charleston gives all customers a complimentary, in-home consultation that helps you make that choice. It’s simple to figure out what fits with your home when we bring the showroom to your living room. We’ll review the collection of options in an abundance of different styles, all for free and with no obligation.

What Makes Louver Shop of Charleston’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some proof of why shutters are nice additions to your window coverings.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom craft our shutters to fit your windows, never mind the size or shape. This creates fewer gaps in your windows for cold outdoor air to come through and heated indoor air to leave.

This is especially critical since windows are the largest culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates they can let out up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood shutters. That’s prospective energy savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill all year.

In the warmer times, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This affords you more power over ventilation without your window treatments clinking in the air current.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the flexibility that shutters offer. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you regulate your shutters just how you prefer them. All while stopping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Charleston, we produce shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can decide your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Not Difficult to Clean

Shutters are easy to clean. All you need is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand complicated washing or high-priced dry cleaning fairly often.

Keep Warmer During Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem comfy, plantation shutters create a luxurious look that can keep your utility expenses down.
