Announcing Our Spring Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Mike Horn Spring is in full swing here in New Brunswick, but don’t think we forgot about our quarterly Share Your Shutters contest. Our latest winner is Tonya S., who submitted a few photos of her home that truly show the benefit shutters can bring to a space. Tonya’s home features some stunning new Polywood® plantation shutters in her dining room. Because her shutters are closed, you can really get a glimpse of how much control plantation shutters really give you over your lighting. Envision that dining room with some softer lighting; it would be a picture-perfect setting for a personal candlelit dinner, right? With the right shutters in your dining room like Tonya has, you can express the mood you want regardless of what it’s like outside. Take a look at how the white shutters perfectly match the white trim on the baseboard and the white ceiling. Those matching neutrals make the black table and the wood floor’s texture shine 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! We love this barn door shutter for a few reasons. The first reason is that it looks fantastic. The homespun aesthetic of the wood paneling with that sleek jet black slider up top give an enduring yet relaxed look. What we love even more than the looks is the practicality of the shutter. Her barn door shutter sits off the window frame, so it can control the light levels while still allowing the window to operate. Since her shutter sits on the frame, Tonya can still make use of that deep window jamb, too. For instance, if she wanted to set a flower on the sill to get sunlight, she’s even able to close the shutter to let it catch some rays while keeping her home dim if she likes. 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 continuing to choose us for all her shutter and window treatment needs. For being picked as our Share Your Shutters feature this quarter, Tonya received a $100 gift card to a local restaurant. Think your shutters should be featured here? We want to see them! Share a photo of your home featuring your shutters using the hashtag #ShareYourShutters, or post a photo on our Facebook page. We’d love to feature some shutters from a New Jerseyan in our next update! Or if looking at Tonya’s home makes you think your space is missing something, we want to help.
