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.

Wood Blinds: When Plantation Shutters Aren’t Your Thing

When you’re styling the rooms in your house it may be easy to think plantation shutters are a great fit, but not every budget or style makes them a suitable choice. Luckily, you don’t have to leave your windows bare or rely solely on drapes to get you by. In fact, other than the availability of fabulous Kirtz® plantation shutters, there are options for a full range of beautiful, real wood blinds. These wood blinds are a natural complement to many styles of décor and budgets.

Having options is basically the American way, right? For this reason, our wood blinds make it possible for you to have various styles. With real wood blinds you can choose to have them painted, stained, or crafted with one of our speciality finishes. With many colors and design opportunities to choose from it’s easy to make wood blinds just as unique of a window treatment as plantation shutter would be.

The best part about wood blinds is that, unlike plastic blinds, the slats won’t bend in the middle if someone were to tug on them. This makes them more durable that you average department store blinds. The slats are also wonderfully adjustable which makes it possible for you to keep the blinds closed for ultimate privacy, slightly open them to allow just enough light in, or open them completely to see everything outside.

Depending on your choice of color your blinds could add warmth to the room of choice or add a subtle, quaint charm. So, if plantation shutters just aren’t your thing, consider wood blinds instead. We would be happy to help you decide which design will be best for your home project. Click here to view our choices of blinds or give Kirtz® a call at 1-800-416-6455 if you’re ready to get started.
