So you’ve decided to install interior shutters on our Los Gatos home, congratulations! You’ll find there are a number of benefits you’ll receive with interior shutters (like energy efficiency, durability, and customization) that other window covering Cupertino simply don’t offer. Still, there are some important things to consider before purchasing your new set of interior shutters. Here we will discuss those factors and why they are so important for your home so you can ensure you bring home the perfect shutters for you and your family!

  1. Know what style you are going for

While shopping for interior shutters, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the number of options available. That’s why it’s so important to have a style in mind before you begin shopping. Cottage style shutters offer small louvers that have a close resemblance to exterior shutters, but can easily be opened or closed. And plantation shutters continue to be a popular choice on the west coast due to their larger panels.

  1. Know which material works best for your home

While shutters can be found in materials like vinyl and aluminum, most homeowners choose to go with wood shutters for their customization abilities and their wide variety of style and colors. Wooden interior shutters are also one of the most energy efficient materials available thanks to their insulating capabilities.

  1. Know what budget you’re working with

It’s important to familiarize yourself with the cost of shutters prior to shopping so you know what is and isn’t a normal price range. Shutters are typically priced per square foot and vary in cost depending on the type of material you are looking for.

Have a professional take measurements

The size of your window plays a major factor in which styles and designs will work best in your home. Have a professional take the measurements for your window. They know how much space should be allotted to ensure a perfect fit.

  1. Consider the Amount of Privacy and Light Control You Desire

Do you want an abundance of light to enter your home or are you looking to have it kept shaded and private? These are important questions to ask yourself prior to shopping for your shutters. Not all shutters offer the same amount of privacy and light control, so it’s important to go with a style that fits your personal needs as a homeowner.
