Why Shutters Are The Best Investment For Your Home
Homeowners love their shutters, also called plantation shutters, for good reason. Especially here in Virginia Beach, some of the new construction homes with their coastal charm are practically begging for the addition of these custom pieces on the windows.
They Add Resale Value To Your Home
Yes, blinds, shades, and draperies can also enhance your decor. But shutters are the ONLY window covering that actually add resale value to your home! And that’s understandable considering the quality of the workmanship that goes into each and every piece.
Shutters Are Like Furniture For Your Windows
Shutters are custom millwork and there’s nothing standard about them. They are made to the exact specifications of your window. And these are permanent fixtures, like furniture, so you wouldn’t take them with you when you decide to sell. They become a part of the house. So much like a wall of built-in shelving in a great room or office, they add real return on investment value to your home!
They are Timeless
Whether your decor is modern, traditional, or somewhere in between, shutters fit the bill every time to create drama, shadows, pretty clean lines, and so much elegance. They can even be custom-painted to match your existing trim work.
They can fit into specialty shapes
This is custom millwork. Shutters can fit into angles, arches, and even work on sliding glass doors. And yes, even in those funky spaces, the shutters are operational and can even be motorized.
They are made by precision craftsmen (and women).
Their process is impressive! In fact, watch this video. Their factory is amazing clean. You’d expect to see saw dust flying everywhere, but it is spotless. Take a look at the end where they test fit the special piece before shipping it.
Shutters are special, unique, and beautiful. If you choose to install them, you can feel confident that you’re making an excellent choice from a design standpoint. And that choice will actually pay off for you and your family if and when you decide to sell.
While we do have access to other shutters on the market, as you can probably tell, we prefer to sell and install Norman. They are precision-crafted. They arrive without flaws, and they are guaranteed for life. Ask anyone in the window coverings industry and they’ll tell you … no one makes a better shutter than Norman.
