Breakfast Nook- Plantation Shutters

Planation Shutters Transformed This Breakfast Nook

From Bare Windows To Beautiful Planation Shutters

You’ve seen before and after photos in marketing fitness products and they usually make you do a double take, because it’s amazing to see such awesome changes. Much in the same way, one of our favorite things to do is take a before and after picture of a plantation shutters project. We believe it is simply awesome to see the transformation from bare windows to beautiful plantation shutters!

Today, our team at Kirtz® Shutters wanted to highlight this past project of a breakfast nook that was remodeled simply by our craftsmen applying their custom, crafted plantation shutters to the windows!

In the picture provided you can see (on the left side) how this breakfast nook started out as a boring, blank space in the home. It looked like a place that wouldn’t be very comfortable to sit. Those with their backs to the window would feel the heat beating down on them and those opposite them would, no doubt, often have to squint their eyes due to the bright overload of sunlight.  

Suddenly, when the plantation shutters were installed the space looked more like a comfortable spot that people would actually want to gather in for dining purposes. The louvers still allow for plenty of sunlight to enter the space when the homeowners desire a brighter atmosphere. Likewise, when they don’t want to have light come in, they can simply shift the tilt rod to close the louvers which keeps the planation shutters from letting light inside.  

No matter which room you would like to transform, plantation shutters make a great choice for doing so as there are options for many different design styles! If you have a breakfast nook, a kitchen window, or another place in your home that you’d like to makeover we’d be happy to help. You can call Kirtz® Shutters at 1-800-416-6455 to get started on your next project. 

Pool House- Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters Perfect For The Pool House

Summertime Custom Built Planation Shutters

Having a swimming pool in your own backyard sure is a blessing and by adding a pool house to your property you’ve not only increased the value of your home, but you’ve made it possible to entertain more guests or make your pool time even better. Part of the beauty of a pool house is being able to enjoy sitting in the shade by the pool, but sometimes guests will need a little more privacy or you’ll desire less glare from the sunlight streaming in on your face. Plantation shutters are a perfect solution for a pool house!

The pool house is a great way to provide a comfortable changing room, nearby bathroom, and a relaxing place to rest. Imagine that after you’ve build up an appetite from swimming you could rest in the pool house with the louvers just opened enough to see outside, meanwhile keeping the light from blinding you. Furthermore, you could choose to sit at the table inside, eat a snack, and look out over the sparkling water of the pool. Perhaps, you’d like to just sit inside and have a chat out of the sun’s harsh rays. In many ways, plantation shutters make it possible to truly feel a sense of calm.

Not only are the planation shutters functional, but they’ll also transform any ordinary pool house into a luxurious place to escape.  

At Kirtz® Shutters, we have many hardwood choices to choose from and we make plantation shutters custom to fit each window. We have a great time perfecting the little details to make unique plantation shutters for each and every customer. 

Whether you have a highly custom project this summer, or just a simple project you’d like help with, we would love nothing more than to provide you with beautiful, custom plantation shutters. To get started with your next project, please feel free to give Kirtz® Shutters a call at 1-800-416-6455. 

Bahama Plantation Shutters- Outdoor Shutters

Get A Tropical Feeling With Outdoor Bahama Style Plantation Shutters

A Patio With Plantation Shutters

If you’re a lover of summertime you may have a perfect image in your mind about sitting out on your patio on a warm, summer day. Feeling the gentle, yet toasty air of a summer breeze on your skin can feel quite nice. Of course, the glare of the sunlight practically blinding your eyes and roasting you alive is a sure-fire way to kill that vibe. What can you do? When all you want to do is get a tropical feeling in your own backyard, believe it or not, Bahama style plantation shutters can help!

As you can see in the photos provided, these custom, tropically-inspired, outdoor planation shutters provide versatility in more than one way. The louvers allow just enough visibility from the inside to see the surrounding backyard area on the opposite side. Furthermore, the plantation shutters can be tilted opened by extending the built in arm which can allow a bit of air flow control.

Imagine sitting on your patio with the ability to block out some of that sunlight and keep your skin feeling refreshed by the kiss of the air. You, your friends, and your family members will not have to rush inside after just a few minutes in the warmth. One thing is for certain, the warm summer days and breezy summer nights will never be the same again with Bahama planation shutters! 

At Kirtz® Shutters, we take pride in being able to make our customers happy and we love finding a way for them to enjoy plantation shutters in unique ways, whether that be for interior design purposes or incorporated into the design of a backyard oasis.

If you have a highly custom project, or are simply looking for premium quality, beautiful custom plantation shutters, call us today at 1-800-416-6455 to get started!

Larksfield Place Dining Room - Plantation Shutters

Planation Shutters Help Larksfield Place Residents Enjoy Leisurely Dining

Larksfield Place Dining Room Windows Covered In Planation Shutters

The original goal for founders of Larksfield Place in Wichita, Kansas was to create an assisted living community with great value and security for their residents. This lovely community offers a full continuum of care and also provides a lifestyle that is sensible and affordable for people 55 years of age and older. One of the most unique amenities on site includes a restaurant style dining room, because enjoying a good meal is one of life’s great social experiences. Kirtz® Shutters was pleased to be able to add a touch of elegance to that space by creating custom plantation shutters for the windows. 

The dining options at this assisted living center can vary from simple good, old fashioned burgers to more upscale meals such as rosemary lamb or lemon thyme game hens. Of course, the food options aren’t the only thing that can help change the temperament of the room and sometimes residents will want to enjoy the feeling of being in a high-end restaurant while spending their leisurely night with good friends!

Luckily, depending upon the mood, the louvers of each of the planation shutters can easily be maneuvered up or down to allow as little or as much light into the dining room as desired. This can help provide diners with either an upbeat feeling and a sunny outlook into the courtyard or create a formal ambience for those elegant nights.

Kirtz® Shutters was happy to help such a lovely establishment become even more lovely with plantation shutters. We simply adore that our craftsmen are able to easily customize plantation shutters to fit any style of living space.

Do you have a custom plantation shutters project in mind for your residence, office, or another living space? No matter what your project is, we’d love to help make your vision a reality. To get started with a quote, give Kirtz® Shutters a call at 1-800-416-6455.

Silhouette Window Shadings Rather Than Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters Too Bold? Try Casual Silhouette Window Shadings

Kirtz® Shutters most obviously focuses on plantation shutters, but we also offer a wide variety of high-quality window treatments in the event that shutters just aren’t the right fit for a customer. Not everyone has the same design tastes or budget which is perfectly acceptable. If you’re still looking for a way to protect your home and furnishings from the sunlight, consider Silhouette Window Shadings instead.

You may love the natural light, but you probably don’t love the streaks that form on your floors, furniture and more. That’s where the beauty of the Silhouette Window Shadings come in. They are unique in that they have an “S” shaped vane which is vital to the structure as it provides amazing UV protection for your home while also enhancing natural day lighting. Like our plantation shutters, Silhouette Window Shadings are extremely versatile. They are available in a wide array of fabrics and colors to compliment every décor.

Depending on your choice of color your shades could add warmth to a room or add a subtle look. Nantucket is part of the Silhouette family and the line offers even more casual fabrics, and similar design options. The signature “S” curve of Silhouette and Nantucket shadings prevents moiré (those ugly, little lines we mentioned) while also allowing for light control. The great part about them is that not only are they stylish, but they’re more budget friendly than plantation shutters for those that still desire a sensible window treatment.

We would be more than happy to help you decide which color and fabric will be best for your home project based on your décor. Clicking here will take you to a page where you can view our choices of Silhouette Window Shadings or give Kirtz® a call at 1-800-416-6455 if you’re ready to get started.
