Outfitting Your Home with Shutters

Shutters have a lot to offer. They are a timeless window treatment dating back centuries that is still known for their contemporary elegance today. Plantation shutters are perfect for creating a polished, put-together look throughout your home. Gorgeous wood finishes complement modern cabinetry and moldings and create a holistic appeal. At Eagle Harbor Window Coverings, we are loving shutters for 2021. Not only do they pair well with an array of decor tastes, but they also feature a host of benefits making them well worth the investment. Here are just a few of our favorite reasons why custom shutters should be on your radar this year.

Plantation shutters come in several styles suited to a variety of needs. For the classic appeal, we love recommending Heritance® Hardwood Shutters from Hunter Douglas. These custom shutters, made from 100% authentic hardwood, are finished in a gorgeous, lustrous coat designed to preserve the character of the wood while standing up to daily wear and tear. For busy homes with pets and children, NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters allow you to express your sense of style with a lightweight window treatment that’s both easy to clean and free from cords or wires that can pose a safety risk. Alternative shutters boast a more robust construction that can stand up to more use, making them great for high traffic spaces.


Some plantation shutters now feature motorization. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters from Hunter Douglas feature one of the only motorized shutter styles on the market thanks to the sleek PowerView® Automation. This innovative technology transforms your ordinary shutters into smart window treatments that blend seamlessly into your existing smart home ecosystem. Control your shutters with the sound of your voice with Apple HomeKit, Google Nest, and Logitech assistance. You can even program custom lighting schedules to quickly set the scene with your favorite natural light positions.

Energy Efficiency

Shutters are one of the most energy efficient window treatments out there. The built-up nature of shutters, designed to sit flush against your windows, creates a seal that keeps heated and cooled air inside. Protect your home from excessive sunlight that can make it difficult to keep your home at a consistent temperature. When paired with motorization, it’s easy to keep your shutters closed during the sunniest times of day with technology that syncs with your local sunrise and sunset times, so you can maintain a lighting schedule throughout your home even when you’re away.
