Announcing Our Spring Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Greg Arnett Spring is blowing by here in Phoenix, but we haven’t forgotten about our regularly scheduled Share Your Shutters contest. This season’s winner is Tonya S., who submitted a few photos of her home that truly show what shutters can do for a home. Tonya’s home features some beautiful new Polywood® plantation shutters in her dining room. Since her shutters are shut, you can really get a look at how well plantation shutters can really help you control light. Envision that dining room with some softer lighting; it would be the perfect setting for an intimate candlelit dinner, right? With plantation shutters in your dining room like Tonya has, you can capture that exact mood regardless of what it’s like outside. Take a look at how the white shutters complement the white trim on the baseboard and the white ceiling. Those matching neutrals let the black wood furniture and the hardwood floor’s texture shine even more. But that wasn’t her only photo submission. She also shared a photo of her brand-new sliding barn door shutter! We love this barn door shutter for a number of reasons. The first reason is that it looks fantastic. The rustic aesthetic of the wood with that sleek jet black slider above give a timeless yet comfortable look. What we like even more than the looks is the practicality of the shutter. Her barn door shutter sits on the front of the window frame, so it can effectively block light while still letting the window operate. Because the shutter sits on the frame, Tonya can still make use of her window sill. As an example, if she wanted to set a flower on the sill to get sunlight, she could even close the shutter to let it catch some rays while keeping her home as dim or bright as she wants. Tonya tells us that this is the third time she’s had Sunburst install window treatments for her home, and we want to thank her for her continued support in choosing us for all her window treatment needs. For winning our quarterly Share Your Shutters contest, Tonya will receive a $100 gift card to a restaurant in her area. Are your new shutters beautiful enough to be featured here? Show them off! Share a photo of your favorite room with shutters using the hashtag #ShareYourShutters, or submit a photo to our Facebook page. We’d love to showcase some shutters from a Arizonian next time! Or if Tonya’s photos make you feel like your home is missing a little something, we’d love to help.
