Check Out Our Spring Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Steve Hill We’re moving through springtime here in Detroit, but don’t think we forgot about our quarterly Share Your Shutters contest. Spring’s contest winner is Tonya S., who shared some photos of her home that truly capture the benefit shutters can bring to a room. Tonya’s home features some beautiful new Polywood® plantation shutters in the dining room. Because her shutters are closed, you can really get a look at how well plantation shutters can really help you control light. Imagine that dining room with some softer lighting; it would be a great setting for an intimate candlelit dinner, right? With plantation shutters in your dining room like Tonya has, you can express the mood you want regardless of what it’s like outside. Also of note is how the white shutters complement the white trim near the floors as well as the white ceiling. Those neutral tones let the black table and the wood floor’s texture shine even more. She didn’t stop at just one photo of her shutters, though. She also shared a photo of her new sliding barn door shutter! We love this barn door shutter for a number of reasons. The first reason is that it looks fantastic. The homespun aesthetic of the wood paneling with that sleek black sliding track above give a timeless yet comfortable look. What we love even more than the shutters’ looks is how practical it is. The barn door shutter sits on the front of the window frame, so it can control the light levels while still letting the window easily open and shut. Because the shutter sits on the frame, Tonya can still make use of that deep window jamb, too. For example, if she wanted to set some plants on the sill to get sunlight, she’s even able to close the shutter to let it catch some rays while keeping her home dim if she likes. Tonya tells us that this is the third time they’ve had Sunburst install window treatments for her home, and we want to thank her for her continued support in choosing us for all her window treatment needs. For winning our quarterly Share Your Shutters contest, Tonya will receive a $100 gift card to a local restaurant. Are your new shutters beautiful enough to be featured here? Show them off! Share a photo of your shutters with the hashtag #ShareYourShutters, or submit a photo to our Facebook page. We’d love to showcase some shutters from a Michiganian next time! Or if looking at Tonya’s home makes you think your house is missing a little something, we’d love to help.
