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. 

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!
