Home is where the heart is, or so the saying goes. But let’s face it—home is where the money is, too. Your home is not only the place where you live and raise your family, it’s also an investment. And if you’re like most people, then your home is probably the largest investment you’ll ever make. Someday, you may want to sell that home and hopefully earn a profit. That’s another way plantation shutters can be beneficial. When you choose to decorate a room with plantation shutters from Southern Shutters & Blinds in Georgetown, TX, you’re not only making a beautiful aesthetic choice, you’re also making a sound investment.
That sound investment can pay off even before people walk through your front door. Ask realtors and they will tell you that the value of curb appeal cannot be overstated. With plantation shutters, you increase the curb appeal of your home. From the street, visitors, passersby and someday buyers will see a pleasing and uniform look. Shutters have a clean look and are quite appealing from both inside and outside your home. In addition, many home buyers favor shutters when they compare potential homes, which can make your investment in plantation shutters from Southern Shutters & Blinds pay off in the long run.
And did you know that the IRS considers installing shutters a capital improvement to your home? This can mean tax savings when it comes time to sell your home. Be sure to keep copies of your receipts for potential tax savings.
Choosing the Best Plantation Shutters
Because plantation shutters are seen from the outside of your home, you may want to consider the exterior of your home when you choose shutters. For example, if the exterior of your home is a darker color, then you may want to choose stained shutters instead of ones that are painted white.

Window treatments don’t only add beauty and complete a room’s décor. They can also help illuminate a room that is too dark or help block out intense sun light that can lead to faded furniture and flooring. In an office, window treatments can alleviate glare on computer and television screens. One of the best choices for light control in any room of your home is wood shutters. Southern Shutters & Blinds in Georgetown, TX, offers a variety of wood shutters that will help manage light within your overall decorative plan.
Daylighting is the buzzword that’s used nowadays when talking about controlling and using sunlight to the best decorative and energy advantage for your home. Wood shutters are attractive in and of themselves, so they not only enhance the look of a room, they can also make the view beyond your windows more attractive. (Or if necessary, of course, they hide unappealing views, too, as well as provide the privacy that you and your family want.) You can save energy when you use sunlight to illuminate a room rather than artificial light. And sunlight can also be a source of heat for your home during the winter months, or you can block sun during the summer months to reduce electricity bills.
Regulating Sunlight for a Beautiful Room
When you want to manage the sunlight that filters into a room through windows, you need to consider:
- The size of the room’s windows
- The direction they face
- The landscape that surrounds your home
Obviously, a room with large windows will have different light control requirements than a room with smaller windows. Likewise, a room with a southern exposure will receive different light throughout the seasons than a room with a northern exposure. And whether or not your home is surrounded by shade trees will also be a consideration. Shutters can help you control the quality of light in any room. You can open the shutters fully to allow the maximum amount of light in, or you can adjust the tilting louvers to filter in less light. Shutters are among some of the more versatile window treatments if you’re looking to manage light in order to enhance the beauty and ambiance of a room in your home.
