Selecting the right window fixture for your home is an important element of any building or remodeling project. Most often, homeowners choose to install either blinds or shutters. While it is a common misconception that blinds are the more economically sound option, this is far from the truth. Many homeowners believe this because the upfront cost of blinds is typically cheaper, however, the superior quality of shutters will yield significant economic advantages in the long run. Still not completely convinced? We’ve compiled a list of the top three economic benefits unique to shutters. Check it out to see why you should ditch the blinds and opt for a smarter investment in shutters.
- One of the greatest benefits of shutters is that they require little maintenance and repair in comparison to blinds. This is because they have a solid frame and strong components that keep them in place during movement. Blinds on the other hand, move easily and are often made of flimsy frames and components that snap and require frequent repair. Blinds are also more difficult to clean for this reason.
- The sealed frame of shutters is able to more effectively block outside air. This provides an additional layer of insulation for your home,making it easier to regulate the temperature and decreasing the cost of heating and cooling.
- When it comes time to sell your home, you will want it to have the most appealing features to up its resale value. Shutters are a great option for adding value to your home as they are sought after by home buyers and therefore add to the monetary value of your home during an appraisal.
