Are Shutters or Blinds Right for You?, Ewa, Hawaii

Shutters and blinds are two highly popular window coverings, and each offers distinct benefits. To determine which is right for your home, consider the breakdown of these window coverings below.


shuttersWhat They Offer

Shutters tend to be the pricier option, but they’re investments you can expect to last. Their slats close tightly to provide complete privacy and light blockage. They’re also effective at insulating noise and thermal transfer, which makes your home quieter and more energy-efficient.

Who They’re Best For

For an attractive and timeless interior design, opt for plantation shutters. These look good in any room and fit with any style of home. The investment will often make your home more desirable when the time comes to sell as well. Some homeowners on tighter budgets choose to put them in just the main entertaining areas such as the dining and living rooms.


What They Offer

Blinds have slats or vanes that can be tilted at any angle, providing the most control over the amount of light that enters your home. The entire treatment can be raised to let in more light. They may be motorized or controlled by hand, and are easy to maintain and keep clean.  

Who They’re Best For

Because they can be completely opened, they suit spaces where you want to enjoy the view. They come in many styles and materials. You can choose vinyl for an affordable and durable material or wood blinds for a more high-end look. They’re popular in bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens alike.
