Announcing Spring 2017s Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Charlie Cole and Brady Parker Spring is blowing by here in Fort Myers, but we haven’t forgotten about our regularly scheduled Share Your Shutters contest. Our latest winner is Tonya S., who shared a few photos of her home that truly show the benefit shutters can bring to a room. Tonya’s house features some stunning new Polywood® plantation shutters in her dining room. Since those shutters are shut, you can really get a glimpse of how much control plantation shutters really give you over your lighting. Envision that dining room with a slightly softer light; it’s almost a great setting for a romantic candlelit dinner, right? With the right shutters in your space like Tonya has, you can express the mood you want no matter what it’s like outside. Also of note is how the white shutters complement the white trim near the floors as well as the white ceiling. Those matching whites make the black wood furniture and the hardwood floor’s natural color stand out even more. She didn’t stop at just one photo of her shutters, though. Below is another photo she submitted of her new sliding barn door shutter! There’s a number of reasons we love this barn door shutter. First off, it looks fantastic. The rustic look of the wood paneling with that sleek black frame up top give a timeless yet cozy look. What we like even more than the shutters’ looks is how practical it is. Her barn door shutter sits on top of the window frame, so it can control the light levels while still allowing the window to easily open and shut. Since her shutter sits on the front the frame, Tonya can still make use of that deep window jamb, too. As an example, if she wanted to set a plant on the sill to get sunlight, she could even close the shutter to let it soak up some rays while still blocking sun glare from outside. Tonya tells us that this is the third time they’ve chosen window treatments from Sunburst Shutters, and we want to thank her for repeatedly choosing us for all her shutter and window treatment needs. For being picked as our Share Your Shutters feature this quarter, Tonya will get a $100 gift card to a restaurant in her area. Are your new shutters beautiful enough to be featured here? We want to see them! Share a photo of your home featuring your shutters using the hashtag #ShareYourShutters, or upload a photo to our Facebook page. We’d love to show off some shutters from a Floridian next go around! Or if looking at Tonya’s home makes you think your space is missing a little something, we want to help.
