Alternatives To Plantation Shutters For For Day Sleepers

Plantation Shutters A No? Try Room Darkening Shades

When you work the night shift you may care very little about allowing light into your bedroom during the day time. In fact, the only thing on your mind is how to effectively keep the light out so that you can get some much needed shut-eye. With that on your mind, it’s understandable that you may not want to spend your budget on custom plantation shutters only to leave their beautiful louvers closed and untouched for either the majority of the time or always. For day sleepers a fabulous alternative that Kirtz® offers are room darkening cellular honeycomb shades.

Like our plantation shutters, Kirtz® offers a variety of honeycomb cellular shades. Just because you sleep during the day doesn’t mean you have to forgo all fashion sense. You can still have beautiful, rich color and texture. Basically, anywhere you could have placed plantation shutters, can also benefit from cellular honeycomb shades.

For example, some customers have chosen to put room darkening shades in their infant’s room. The best part is that because the cells are constructed in a way that allows them to catch air and insulate windows you can have the beautiful appearance along with the energy saving capability that comes along with honeycomb cellular shades!

For a practical, high-quality window treatment that doesn’t require quite the attention that custom handcrafted plantation shutters do, honeycomb cellular shades are a perfect alternative with a wonderful value.

While our first passion is plantation shutters, our staff at Kirtz® looks forward to helping our customers find the window treatment that best suits their needs. If you’re in need of something that would help you darken your room, yet you want quality shades we hope you’ll let us dress your windows!

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.

Rake Shutter- Custom Shaped Shutters

Custom Rake Shutters For Those Triangular Windows

Custom Shaped Shutters: Rake Shutters

Adding triangular windows near the ceiling can increase the amount of light that streams into the house during the daytime. This is often the inspiration behind this unique window choice. In the event that you don’t want the light pouring in at all hours of the day Kirtz® custom shaped shutters for triangular windows are a fantastic option. Rake shutters truly are an amazing solution for your angle topped windows (or triangle windows).

Custom rake shutters elevate the design of any room, as they look more like an architectural element than a window treatment. What’s nice about our rake shutters is that the louvers are functional which means they can be slightly opened, fully opened, or fully closed. Just as with any of our plantation shutters, we put a lot of pride and joy into the custom creation of our rake shutters. The wood is meticulously crafted from genuine hardwood to fit perfectly in your window no matter what the shape and size.

So, if you’ve moved into a home that you absolutely love, but you aren’t crazy about the exposed triangle windows, we would be happy to help. We understand that not every window design is a simple one, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lovely design element to help you keep the light under control. Since Kirtz® custom shaped rake shutters are just as pleasing to the eye as they are functional, we can dress up your windows and make a classic and timeless statement that can last a lifetime.

While it may seem like a challenge to cover triangular architectural windows, it’s one that we welcome with open arms. If you would like to know more about Kirtz® rake shutters, any of our plantation shutters, or other window treatment options, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-416-6455.
