Fort Mill Custom Blinds Update for Nice Couple

Artisan Shutter was contacted by a husband and wife who were currently renovating their home in Fort Mill, North Carolina. The couple’s current window treatments were very old and drab venetian blinds. The couple wanted to remove these dated artifacts and update their windows with custom blinds. They called Artisan Shutter and scheduled an in-home consultation with the couple so we could go over the Fort Mill custom blinds they were looking for. We informed the couple that custom blinds would allow the couple the ability to bring their personal touch, style, and décor to their windows. We went over the benefits of custom blinds, which included durability, moisture and sun resistance, and a choice of colors, fabrics, and designs.

The couple chose the style, color and decided to go with motorized roller window shades for their windows. We measured the windows so we would have the precise measurements required to do an excellent job. Once the roller window shades were made our professional installers scheduled the installation. The installers completed their work within a few hours. The couple was relieved that the motorized windows were incredibly simple to operate and, of course, couldn’t take their eyes off their beautiful new shades.

We were so glad to update the couple’s window treatments and to deliver their very own custom shades. The happy couple was able to match the color of the shades to the décor of the space with no problem. Artisan Shutter offers a wide variety of custom blinds for Fort Mill, North Carolina residents.

What is involved in shutter maintenance?

Shutters have become the #1 choice for window treatments. They add beauty to a home, energy efficiency, and can bring sophistication to home and décor. Shutters are very low-maintenance, and easy to take care of. If they are located indoors, you will want to use a soft dust cloth and furniture polish. You should take the furniture polish and spray it onto the cloth. You should never spray the furniture spray onto the shutters. Then wipe down to remove all dust and dirt that gets onto the shutters. You can also use a feather duster to get in between the slants.

To clean plantation shutters that are outdoors, use a gentle dish soap added to a bucket of water, and a soft cloth. Wipe down the plantation shutters to remove dirt and grime, then you can gently use a water hose without any hard force or power to rinse the soap and dirt from the plantation shutters. Depending on where you live, you should try to clean your shutters at least once a month, or more if the area that you live is heavily dusty and dirty.

What is the best way to clean and maintain my window coverings?

The best way to clean and maintain window coverings is to do weekly or bi-weekly dusting and cleaning. Dusting is an excellent way to clean window treatments. A feather duster is a great way to remove dust that has gathered on window coverings. Also, using a soft cloth with furniture polish applied to the cloth can be used. Gently go over the window covering with the soft cloth to remove all dust, dirt, and debris. If you do this regularly, then the window coverings will stay clean and maintained. 

There is no major maintenance that needs to be done for the window coverings; they have a very low maintenance.

Is it true that window shutters lower energy bills?

Window coverings definitely lower energy bills. Depending on the window coverings, homeowners can drastically reduce their energy bills. Shutters are the best window coverings to lower energy bills. They are so effective that homeowners can have shutters installed in their home and be able to get a tax credit for the product and installation.

Shutters can lower energy costs by blocking heat and cold from entering the home, and it can stop the heating and cooling from escaping the home. Shutters add a thick layer of insulation to the windows that blinds and drapes can’t do alone. Homeowners can add them along with their drapes to get added insulation. Regular mini blinds don’t offer the energy efficiency that shutters can offer.
