For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window
treatment to cover your windows. They are susceptible to deteriorating over time with the
strings giving way and the loops that hold the slats in
place falling apart. And they might be troublesome to clean.
Shades offer a variety of
colors and unique patterns, turning your window
into artwork. By effortlessly pulling up the fabric of
the shade, your entire window is exposed and you can see out
onto your Chicago neighborhood.
Draperies also are available in a wide
assortment of color, fabric, and
patterns. They are a traditional choice for a window
treatment. Installing thick panels between the drapes and
the window gives you light and temperature
block-out capabilities. And unlike other window treatments, there’s no rush to clean draperies
for five years.
If you’re looking for a window
treatment that lasts over 10 years, saves you real
dollars on your energy bills, and looks
elegant on your windows,
shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but
they’re also beautiful and energy efficient.
As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70%
better than an equivalent wood shutter. That’s
energy savings you can’t get with any other
Plantation shutters are unparalleled when it comes to control
over privacy and light. And with their large
louvers, Polywood plantation shutters give your space a clean contemporary feel whether they’re closed or open.
