Check Out Spring 2017s Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Cory Cryer We’re moving through springtime here in Houston, but don’t think we forgot about our quarterly Share Your Shutters contest. Spring’s contest winner is Tonya S., who shared a few photos of her home that truly capture what shutters can do for a room. Tonya’s space features some stunning new Polywood® plantation shutters in her dining room. Because the shutters are closed, you can really get a look at how much control plantation shutters really give you over your lighting. Envision that dining room with some softer lighting; it would be the perfect setting for a personal candlelit dinner, right? With plantation shutters in your home like Tonya has, you can express the mood you want no matter the time of day. Also worth mentioning is how the white shutters complement the white trim on the baseboard as well as the white ceiling. Those matching whites let the black wood furniture and the wood floor’s texture stand out even more.That wasn’t Tonya’s only photo submission, however. Below is another photo she submitted of her brand-new sliding barn door shutter! There are a few reasons we love this barn door shutter. First off, it looks fantastic. The homegrown look of the wood panel with that smooth jet black hardware up top give an enduring yet relaxed look. What we like even more than the shutters’ looks is how practical it is. The barn door shutter sits on top of the window frame, so it can effectively block light while still letting the window operate.Since her shutter sits on the front the frame, Tonya can still use that deep window jamb, too. As an example, if she wanted to set some flowers on the sill to get sunlight, she could even close the shutter to let it catch some rays while still blocking sun glare from outside.According to Tonya this is the third time they’ve 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 winning our quarterly Share Your Shutters contest, Tonya received a $100 gift card to a restaurant in her area.Are your new shutters beautiful enough to be featured here? Show them off!
