Shutters lend classic style and dignified allure to any home. They can be mounted on the inside or outside the window, is energy efficient, and are very easy to operate. What’s not to love? We’ve made a list of the top five reasons to invest in shutters to make the decision easier for you.
The Personalization Factor
When you purchase custom-made shutters, you’re guaranteed to get a final product that reflects your personal preference and taste. Custom shutters are an easy way to make your home genuinely look and feel like your own. Interior shutters also provide an excellent amount of light control and privacy because a custom fit means fewer gaps around the shutter.
Increased Property Value
Shutters are the only window treatment considered to be a permanent fixture once installed. Shades, blinds, and other window coverings can look great, but they won’t add monetary value to the appraisal of your home the way shutters can. They are a sought-after window treatment, and many real estate agents agree that homes with shutters tend to sell more quickly.
Amping Up Energy Efficiency
Window shutters offer a significant amount of insulation. The broader slats mean fewer gaps for unwanted air to sneak in. You can also add drapes or curtains over your shutters to increase insulation.

You Can’t Place a Price on Privacy
The solid nature of shutters gives your home a more secure feeling. They also offer variable light control so you can enjoy natural light and privacy. Simply tilt the slats to adjust the amount of incoming light. You can pair your shutters with a base of sheer shades to allow for even more daylight without losing any privacy.
Durable & Easy to Care For
When you purchase Hunter Douglas shutters, you can rest assured it’s an investment that will last for many years. Shutters are easy to clean using a soft cloth. Starting at the top, wipe each slat until you reach the bottom. Then reverse the direction of the slats and repeat. Cleaning your shutters once a week will keep them looking brand new for years to come. For even more worry-free home investment, consider Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters. Perfect for homes in hot and humid climates, Palm Beach™ shutters will never fade, warp, crack, or yellow due to moisture or UV exposure.
