Announcing Spring 2017s Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Todd Hansen Spring is blowing by here in Orlando, but we haven’t forgotten about our regularly scheduled Share Your Shutters contest. Our winner for Spring is Tonya S., who submitted some photos of her home that truly capture what shutters can do for a home. Tonya’s house features some stunning new Polywood® plantation shutters in her dining room. Because those shutters are shut, you can really get a look at how much control plantation shutters really give you over your lighting. Imagine that dining room with a slightly softer light; it would be the perfect setting for a romantic candlelit dinner, right? With the right shutters in your home like Tonya has, you can capture that exact mood no matter what it’s like outside. Also of note is how the white shutters perfectly match the white trim on the baseboard as well as the white ceiling. Those matching whites make the black wood furniture and the wood floor’s texture ”pop” even more. But that wasn’t her only photo submission. She also sent in a photo of her brand-new sliding barn door shutter! We love this barn door shutter for a few reasons. The first reason is that it looks fantastic. The homespun aesthetic of the wood panel with that smooth black sliding track above give an enduring yet comfortable look. What we like even more than the shutters’ looks is how practical it is. Her barn door shutter sits off the window frame, so it can control the light levels while still allowing the window to open and close. Because the shutter sits outside the frame, Tonya can still make use of that deep window jamb, too. As an example, if she wanted to set some flowers on the sill to get sunlight, she’s even able to close the shutter to let it soak up some rays while still blocking sun glare from outside. According to Tonya 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 shutter needs. For winning our quarterly Share Your Shutters contest, Tonya will get a $100 gift card to a local restaurant. Think your shutters should be featured here? We want to see them! Share a photo of your shutters with the hashtag #ShareYourShutters, or post a photo on our Facebook page. We’d love to feature some shutters from a Floridian next time! Or if looking at Tonya’s home makes you think your house is missing something, we’d love to help. Call 407-630-7011 today to talk to one of Sunburst Shutters Orlando’s window design experts to begin.
