If you’ve been to any model homes or home shows lately, you’ve probably seen a lot of beautiful flowing drapery, soft white carpets, and delicate home decor. It’s all great to look at, but can it really be accomplished? Certainly, some people’s lives are made for this type of home decor. For many of, though, it’s just not a reality. With kids, pets, and everyday life, sometimes practical is more important than pretty. What if you could have both? When it comes to window treatments, you can! Durable window treatments can stand up to your real life — kids, dogs, and the whole nine yards. Easy to clean and maintain, durable window treatments are good choices for any high traffic areas, including kitchens, bathrooms, garages, mud rooms, and more. Here at Shutter Guy serving the greater Charleston area, we carry a wide variety of durable window treatments. Let’s take a look at the most popular choices.
Aluminum Horizontal Blinds
Quality aluminum blinds have strong metal slats that can stand up to busy lives. Many aluminum blinds are made with a spring-tempered alloy that allows slats to “bounce back” even when bent or tousled. Even better, today’s our aluminum blinds are often made with special finish that actually repels dust.
Interior Vinyl Shutters
Plantation shutters made from vinyl material are one of the most durable window treatments on the market. Shutters are classic window treatments that add value to your home, are easy to operate, and provide excellent light and privacy control. Shutters constructed with UV resistant vinyl won’t warp, crack, fade, chip, peel or discolor, regardless of extreme heat or moisture.
Alternative Wood Blinds
You can have the beauty of real wood blinds, without the risk of fading, yellowing, warping, and bowing. Alternative wood blinds are made from a composite wood material that looks like wood but with substantially more durability. They are scratch- and dent-resistant and easy to clean with a damp cloth or cleaning material. Available in realistic grain patterns built to withstand heat, humidity, and high traffic, alternative blinds are perfect for high traffic areas.
