Are shutters better than blinds?
The first interior shutters may have been in ancient Greece and used as protection against the elements, much like they are today. They were most likely made of marble, but had louvers and kept the classic appearance they still have. Shutters have gained in popularity as window treatments across the country for generations. According to a recent survey in Draperies & Window Coverings magazine, nearly twice as many readers chose shutters than the year before. All styles of shutters are durable, classic and easy to maintain but why do people love them for their homes?
Any shutter style lends classic architectural beauty to a window that draperies or curtains cannot offer. People want indoor shutters because of aesthetics. Decorative windows or stained glass panels can be added to shutters, making them unique and customized.
