It’s officially summer! You know what that means, summer road trips and vacations. It also means battling the summer heat. This time of year, homeowners across the country are fighting to decrease air conditioning bills, protect furniture from the harsh rays of the sun, and keep their families cool and comfortable.

Shutters and Blinds by Design offers more than a few kinds of shutters to customers in Raleigh, NC and surrounding areas like Wake Forest, NC, Holly Springs, NC, Apex, NC, and Cary, NC.

Shutters are not only a part of beautiful home decorations but are vital to the home.  They provide a barrier between heat entering the home and cool air leaving it. Our kinds of shutters include Real Wood Shutters, Composite Shutters, Exterior Shutters, Cafe Shutters, and Plantation Shutters.

Our Real Wood Shutters are lightweight and provide privacy, lighting, or security. They are ideal for large windows, because they are lighter in weight. Stylistically, these shutters are made from natural materials, which means they can add a classical feel and warmth to your window space. All of this and a wider array of colors and stains.

Our Composite Shutters are made from composite materials like core wood. They are ideal for your window coverings that need to be resistant to water. In addition, these shutters are made to be timeless, meaning that once they are correctly installed in your space, they can last a very long time. They are also budget friendly.

Our Cafe Shutters can be made from various materials. They are ideal for ground level window spaces that are located in your kitchen or dining area, because they do not cover the entirety of your window. Rather, they typically cover the bottom half. They generally create a kind of European feel for your window space.

Plantation Shutters: These shutters are similar to cafe shutters, because they can be found in dining areas. One difference is that these cover the entirety of your window, from the floor to the height of the window. Stylistically, they are usually made of narrow panels that, like other shutters, slant downward or upward.

Keep the heat outside with Shutters and Blinds by Design.
