Interior shutters can help you reduce your monthly energy bills by letting you control the amount of light entering your home. It also provides privacy by covering your windows from the inside. Selecting, however, the right type of shutters for your home in Leawood, KS, Overland Park or Kansas City can be difficult, especially when you can choose from an array of window treatments.

Right Shutters

BlindBroker, your professional shutter contractor, gives you tips to pick the right shutters for your home.

  1. Choose the best style.

    There are three main types of interior shutters: plantation, cottage-style, and West Coast plantation. Among the three shutter styles, plantation shutters are the most popular. They usually have larger louvers than “classic” ones, allowing natural light and landscape viewing from your home without sacrificing indoor privacy.

    Plantation shutters are also guaranteed to blend well with any interior design. At BlindBroker, we provide wood shutters that will complete the overall aesthetic of your traditional, modern, or eclectic home.

  2. Check the materials.

    Composite shutters are popular for their durability while wood shutters are recognized for their classy look. Most wood and composite shutters are crafted from medium-density fiberboard concealed with polypropylene.

    At BlindBroker, our Graber Traditions® Composite Shutters are designed not to fade, warp, peel,  or crack. We also have seven shutter frame styles, suitable for various window shapes and sizes.

  3. Know how much they would cost.

    In any window treatment project, it is important to consider how much money you will spend. You can choose a shutter style that will enhance your home’s interior design and, at the same time, will fit your budget.
