Best Types of Shutters for the Texas Weather
In Texas, we have a climate that people either love or cannot stand. We have hot summers, moderate winters, and pretty easy in-between seasons. That being said, wherever you live, you’ll want to ensure maximum comfort inside. To do that, you must take a good look at your home’s furnishings. Your home is your sanctuary, and it should always feel that way. We all want to avoid temperature extremes if possible. Did you know that your window coverings have a much larger impact on internal temperature than you might think? Here are the best types of shutters we can recommend for Texas homes.
Interior Shutter Benefits
Having interior shutters installed within your property has a number of unbeatable benefits, and one of them is temperature control. We lose cool air through the windows without even knowing, and shutters have an impact in keeping our rooms cooler by preventing much less air from escaping. This gives you the flexibility of adjusting the thermostat – both to conserve energy and save a substantial amount of money. The shutters also allow options for light control. For instance, if it’s a cloudless day and the sun is glaring too brightly inside to enjoy part of your space, you can adjust your shutters accordingly to be more comfortable. Additionally, shutters offer you an incomparable amount of privacy, so when the evening rolls around, you can simply close them and have peace of mind.
Shutters on their own are pretty much the best type of window treatment you can use for your home in the state of Texas. Their benefits are incredible, and fortunately, you have many options for the style you would like, materials, finishes, and other preferences. At Starwood Distributors, we offer our shutters in four different styles: traditional, modern, plantation, and transitional. All offer the same qualities – choice is simply a style preference. You can choose between a front or rear tilt of the louver (front tilt being more common). Plantation shutters are a popular choice due to their quintessential Southern look and function. We offer them in both wood and a faux-wood material.
When it comes to the color of their shutters, we offer our clients a substantial range from which to choose. However, we also know that Texas has quite the climate. No matter the region of our state, we can always count on intense heat at the peak of summer. Knowing that, if you have the style of home that permits it, we highly encourage you to go with white shutters. Brown and other dark hues will absorb the heat more easily, and may not give you the same results temperature-wise as lighter-colored shutters will.
