***Collaborative post***

Looking for the best way to add some personality to your windows? Maybe you’re looking for an upgrade for your home’s exterior? Whatever impact you want for your home’s exterior space, window shutters are an exciting choice. The installations are not only about looks but also functionality, and more.

If you plan to give your home a makeover, consider the following shutter systems for your home.

Raised Panel Shutter Style

This shutter style is like what you have in your home’s cabinets. It’s one of the most popular styles in wood applications and for a good reason. The low-profile panels work with any home style from Colonial, ranch style homes, Greek revival, Cape Cod, Victorian to Federal, and others. The decorative, raised panel shutter system gives your home a distinct laid back country style.

Louvered Shutter Style

The louvered shutter style is popular as it easily combines beauty, privacy, and protection for your home. The shutter system features overlapping slanted slats which block light and keep away prying eyes. However, it’s easy to open and let in natural light and cool air whenever you like.

The shutter style can work with any architectural style though it blends most perfectly with classic architectural styles where homes have an ornate, or casual style. Such homes include Federal and Colonial, Victorian, Italianate, Georgian, and Ranch among others.

Board-and-Batten Shutter Style

If you want to give your home a rustic or old world outlook, the board and batten (BnB) shutters will work for you. The shutter style also works perfectly with old world architecture, Mediterranean, Cape Cod/Ranch, and French Country homes. You can choose from a versatile range of styles including spaced, arch-top or square, or joined styles to personalize your home.

Bahama Shutters (Bermuda Shutter Style)

This is a type of louvered shutter style but with a unique installation system at the top of windows. When fixed on top, the shutter style is stronger than classic louvered shutters. The shutter system is popular for tropical areas frequently hit by powerful storms. The fitting style also makes it easier to open the shutter to let in the cool breeze on hot days.

Plantation Shutter Style

Plantation shutter style is one of the most popular types of louvered shutters you’ll find on homes. These are a magnificent upgrade for your home and feature larger spacing. Plantation shutters improve curb appeal, enhance indoor light control, and increase your home’s value. If you’re in a storm-prone area, these shutters enhance protection for your home and the occupants.

Cut-out shutter Style

If you want to add some unique personality to your exterior space, consider cut-out design shutter style. You can choose unique cut out shapes and motifs to give your windows a makeover and improve your home’s exterior outlook.

If you’re thinking of a way to make your windows stand out from the rest of the house, consider these shutter styles. They combine aesthetics and function to improve your home. You get a more attractive, energy-efficient, and safer living space with the window upgrades.
