Plantation Shutters add something very special to the room they get installed in. There are numerous of compelling reasons on why to go for shutters, such as: aesthetics, privacy, ventilation, durability, child safety, and the list keeps going on.
They are, without a doubt, within my top 5 window treatments (click this link to read a blog on my "Top 5 window treatments"). And yes, they are one of the most expensive window treatments you can find, but they are worth every penny all the time. I really recommend them to anyone.
The brands that I use and I am well familiarized with are Hunter Douglas, Timber Blinds and The Window Outfitters. I also know and use other brands like Norman, Design Shutters, among others, and if there's another brand that makes you curious, let me know of them and we'll review together; I'll help you learn about the warranties, the styles, operational systems, prices... pretty much everything there is to know about that brand.
I'm sure I can offer you the best deals and service for your house transformation. Get a hold of me and let me know how I can help you.
