There is a saying that the eyes are the windows to the soul. When it comes to our homes, our windows are like the eyes and window shutters are like the eyelashes. They add beauty and a touch of elegance. If you have ever driven by a house with little or no windows in the front you will know what we mean. It just looks like a big rectangle. It’s not eye-catching or appealing. It doesn’t make you take a second look.
Whether you are just taking care of your own home or preparing it to sell, the windows are major features. There are a variety of windows you can get for your home and eventually windows actually wear out and need to be replaced. Sometimes they sustain damage from storms or flying baseballs! Sometimes they just get old and the seals wear out allowing air and water to leak into your home.
If you have an older home with single pane windows especially, you will need to consider replacing them at some point. Single pane windows do not maintain the indoor temperature of your home as well as double pane windows. They are less energy and cost efficient. Double pane windows help you save on your energy bills by not needing to run your heater or air conditioner for as long as you would with single pane windows. They add to the insulation factor of your home.
On the inside, we are mindful of decorating our windows. We usually choose some form of blinds – mini blinds, wood blinds, or verticals. We often add additional decor with curtains, sheers, or valances. We use them to dress up the windows and add a touch of elegance or a pop of color to a room. But what about the outside of our windows? People driving by don’t see the pretty curtains hanging inside. What kind of curb appeal does your home have?
At Brevard Shutter, we specialize in window shutters, offering a wide assortment for you to choose from. Shutters have come a long way over the years, some being simply aesthetic, some being functional to provide storm protection, and others providing both beauty and protection! We have a showroom on site at our Melbourne, FL location, open Monday through Friday, for you to see the beautiful shutters we offer.
