Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains give a touch of refinement and vibrance to your home. They also look great with window shutters in Kansas City, resulting in a statement in any living space.

You may like just one style, or use them together to complement your interior design. Curtains might seem like a natural option, but there are some things to consider before you choose.

Louver Shop of Kansas City give you a complimentary, in-home consultation that helps you decide. It’s not difficult to find out what suits your home when we transport the showroom to your living room. We’ll go over the multiple options in an abundance of different styles, all with no charge or obligation. Arrange yours today for local, personal service and an everything’s-included price quote.

What Makes Louver Shop of Kansas City’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some reasons why shutters are helpful additions to your home.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom make our shutters to suit your windows, regardless of size or shape. This leaves fewer places in your windows for cold outdoor air to sneak through and warm indoor air to get out.

This is specifically useful since windows are the biggest culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates they can bleed up to 30% of your space’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood shutters. That’s prospective energy savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill the whole year.

In the summer, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This lets you have more control over ventilation without your window treatments jangling in the breeze.

2. Better Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the flexibility that shutters offer. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you adjust your shutters just how you prefer them. All while stopping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Crafted for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Kansas City, we craft shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can determine your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Straightforward to Clean

Shutters are not complicated to clean. All you want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may need time-consuming washing or costly dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer on Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem comfy, plantation shutters provide a rich look that can keep your utility expenses down.
