Your Portland Home Needs Shutters
Do you love the look of blinds, but want something a little classier? There’s a window covering you might not have considered that you need to look into. Have you ever considered putting shutters in your Portland home?
Shutters in Portland aren’t as common as blinds or curtains as a window treatment these days, but in earlier times they were one of the most popular window treatments around. They spread across the Atlantic from the Old World and are extremely common on older houses and buildings. Louvered or board and batten shutters allowed breeze to pass through a home while controlling the amount of light and heat that made its way in, while heavier shutters kept out the weather. With the advent of mass-produced glass and screens, shutters lost their status as the primary window covering. But if you’re looking for a unique style option or a creative interior treatment for your home in Portland, shutters are still a great choice.
If you have decorative wood accents inside your home you can use shutters to add an extra level of pop. Match them to the trim and your decor is suddenly much more cohesive. Or painted trim and cabinets—use painted shutters and you’ll have an effect that blinds, curtains and shades just can’t replicate because they don’t have the same surface area. And for the outside, shutters on a Portland house can add a gorgeous accent in a different color or style, creating curb appeal that can raise property values and help your home stand out.
