Are Window Shutters Warmer Than Curtains?

Curtains add a sense of grandeur and vibrance to your rooms. They also coordinate well with window shutters in Tampa, making a statement in any room.

You may like one over the other, or use both to complement your home design. Curtains may seem like a comfortable pick, but there are a couple things to review before you make your selection.

Louver Shop of Tampa gives all customers a complimentary, in-home consultation that helps you understand your options. It’s simple to see what works with your home when we transport the showroom to your living room. We’ll review the multiple options in all the different styles, all at no cost or obligation.

What Makes Louver Shop of Tampa’s Shutters Rise Above the Competition

Here are some examples of why shutters are useful additions to your home.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom make our shutters to conform to your windows, never mind the size or shape. This leaves fewer places in your windows for cool outdoor drafts to sneak through and treated indoor air to escape.

This is especially crucial since windows are the guiltiest culprit for energy loss. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated they can let out up to 30% of your house’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood shutters. That’s potential electricity savings you can notice on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

In the warmer times, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This lets you have more control over ventilation without your window treatments clinking in the air current.

2. Upgraded Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t have the adaptability that shutters extend. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control allows you to adjust your shutters just how you prefer them. All while preventing the tilt bar from ruining your view.

3. Custom Crafted for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Tampa, we build shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can pick your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Simple to Clean

Shutters are simple to clean. All you want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may need time-consuming washing or pricey dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer this Winter with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem more comfortable, plantation shutters provide a gorgeous look that can keep your heating and cooling charges down.
