Watching Football- Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters Save Football Season

No Glare While Watching Football Thanks To Plantation Shutters

Who loves putting out the snacks, having friends and family over, and cheering for their favorite football team on the big screen? Many people do! Of course, one thing can ruin the merriment of watching football on tv; the glare from the sunlight or the street light shining in from outside which displays directly onto your tv screen. Talk about a less than perfect football watching experience. What if we told you that plantation shutters can make your football watching experience much better? Believe it!

You see, with the shutters in place you would be able to see all of the football action clearly on your tv screen. Doesn’t that sound exactly like what you would want while you cheer for your team? Perhaps, once you see the big difference you’d also be cheering for the decision to purchase plantation shutters for the windows in your home.

Have you ever found yourself squirming in your chair trying to avoid the glare that is displaying right in the middle of your tv screen? At some point you may just get used to watching your favorite football games with the glare, but what if you didn’t have to do that anymore? Plantation shutters are a wonderful solution as the louvers are specifically designed to be closed completely to block out light, which would inevitably reduce the glare and help provide some privacy, too. 

When you’re not watching tv and you want the light to stream in, feel free to open those louvers back up and soak up the sunshine! Kirtz® Shutters offers a wide variety of plantation shutters to match any style!

Are you ready to see a clear difference in your football watching experience? To get your estimate and learn more about which plantation shutters would be best suited for your home, our representatives are available to help! Please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-416-6455!

Sparrow- Plantation Shutters

The Addition Of Plantation Shutters For A Wedding Venue

New Plantation Shutters For A Romantic Ambience

The season for romantic weddings and receptions is coming right along with the warmer weather of spring! We imagine that a lot of people will be looking for that “special place” they will get married. For those that live in Stillwater, Oklahoma (or wouldn’t mind traveling there) a new, magical location has been built. The lovely part is that Kirtz® Shutters was able to provide a touch of elegance, with plantation shutters, to this lovely venue known as Sparrow.

Sparrow was created by sisters Shelby Howerton, Jessica Sutton, and Katie Barlow with their mom, Susan Hartford. Sparrow came into being when Shelby and Katie became engaged at about the same time, but couldn’t find their dream wedding location. With no venue to make their dreams blossom, they sought out to build what they wanted into existence. In 2016, the construction of Sparrow began. Every last detail was hashed out and by the end of July they were ready to start interior design. 

By the end of 2016 and into the start of 2017, the finishing touches of Sparrow were ready to be added to the beautiful venue. Kirtz® was honored to have been asked to help embellish the inside with some pretty, white plantation shutters which helped to create a romantic ambience. As you can see from the photos, the louvers are fully functional on both the door and the windows. The sunlight can stream in beautifully when the louvers are fully opened or they can be closed to allow for privacy. 

We love being able to offer custom work for any project. Do you have a plantation shutters project of your own in mind? We’d love to be able to help you make your event location beautiful with the addition of plantation shutters. Just give Kirtz® a call at 1-800-416-6455 to get started!

Top Reasons To Install Plantation Shutters: Part 1

4 Reasons To Consider Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters can offer a custom look to any home. This is especially true of a Kirtz® shutter that is handcrafted from only the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. If you cannot decide which window dressings to apply in your newly built home we’re here to help. Today, we’re going to list 4 reasons you should consider plantation shutters for your primary window treatments.

1.) They are durable.
Custom plantation shutters are built to last a long time. Kirtz® shutters are real wood, with solid louvers. They are not the cheaper alternative vinyl shutters with hollow louvers. If you calculate the one time cost of your shutters versus the purchasing of other window treatments then you may find that they are less expensive than having to replace window coverings such as drapes or mini-blinds every few years. 

2.) They offer privacy.
Plantation shutters are easily adjustable to let the light stream in, but they also keep prying eyes out. This allows you to maintain your privacy as well as allowing natural light to enter. If you angle the louvers just so, you can even see out, but others won’t be able to see in.

3.) They are energy savers. 
Of course, letting light in is ideal at times, but shutters are also a wonderful choice for insulating your windows. Your energy bills will be lower during the times you choose to keep the warm sunlight out during the summer. In the winter, the shutters also provide an added layer of insulation to keep the cold out.

4.) They are easy to clean. 
Simply put, plantation shutters are easily cleaned by using a lint-free cloth, microfiber cloth, or duster from time to time to wipe off the grime. You don’t even need to take them down in order to clean them, just open the louvers and wipe them down.

If you don’t need another second to decide that plantation shutters are right for your next home project, feel free to give Kirtz® a call at 1-800-416-6455!
