Why Are Shutters the Most Wanted Window Treatment? For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window treatment to cover your windows. Chances are they will deteriorate over time with the strings breaking and the loops that hold the slats in place falling apart. And they are difficult to clean. Shades offer a variety of colors and unique patterns, changing your window into artwork. By effortlessly pulling up the fabric of the shade, your whole window is exposed and you can see out onto your Colorado Springs neighborhood. Draperies also offer a wide variety of color, fabric, and patterns. They are a traditional option for a window treatment. Adding thick panels between the drapes and the window allows for light and temperature block-out capabilities. And unlike other window treatments, there’s no rush to clean draperies for five years. If you’re looking for a window treatment that lasts over 10 years, saves you actual bucks on your energy bills, and looks beautiful on your windows, shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but they’re also elegant and energy efficient. In fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a comparable wood shutter. That’s energy savings you will miss out on with any other window treatment. When it comes to control over privacy and light, plantation shutters are unmatched. And with their large louvers, Polywood plantation shutters give your room a clean contemporary feel whether they’re closed or open.
