Wood Blinds- Plantation Shutters

Wood Blinds As An Alternative To Plantation Shutters

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.

Kirtz® Sunburst Shutters Offering A Uniquely Beautiful Design

Custom Sunburst Shutters For Any Arched Window

While the saying goes “never judge a book by it’s cover” it’s a little difficult not to swoon over the front of a home that has been embellished with arched windows. The design of arched windows provides an aesthetically pleasing view that plain rectangular windows just don’t deliver. If you’re the home builder, you’re sure to have the homeowner admire those windows. There’s just one more decision to make and that entails finding the best compliment to your custom work. Kirtz® sunburst shutters offer a uniquely beautiful design element.

Many designers or homeowners may consider leaving the arched window untreated by blinds or shades, because they don’t know what would be the best fit for the window. Yes, a little natural light is wonderful from time to time, but what about those moments when you need a little less glare? You don’t have to leave the window bare or allow rays of sunlight to stream across the television, phone, laptop, or similar electronic devices.

Perhaps, your arched window design is different than others you have seen? It doesn’t matter if your arched window is actually a half circle window on top of a rectangle window, if it has wall space in between, or if it is one sunburst arch window, because all of them can be fit with Kirtz® custom designed sunburst shutters. What makes the sunburst shutters unique is that they’re not only gorgeous, but functional, as well!

Our sunburst shutters have a curved tilt rod which conforms to the shape of the sunburst on the backside of the shutter. Additionally, the louvers of the sunburst shutters are simple to operate and work in unison so that light control is possible.

These architectural shaped sunburst shutters require the attention of our most experienced and skilled craftsman, thus; we ask that you contact Kirtz® Shutters to discuss your next project where sunburst shutters may be crafted to offer the most pleasing design. Contact us at 1-800-416-6455!
