Check Out Our Spring Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017David White Spring is blowing by here in Miami, but don’t think we forgot about our quarterly Share Your Shutters contest. Our winner for Spring is Tonya S., who submitted some photos of her home that truly capture the benefit shutters can bring to a home. Tonya’s home features some stunning new Polywood® plantation shutters in the dining room. Since her shutters are closed, you can really get a look at how well plantation shutters can really help you control light. Imagine that dining room with some softer lighting; it’s almost the perfect setting for an intimate candlelit dinner, right? With plantation shutters in your dining room like Tonya has, you can express the mood you want at any time of day. Also worth mentioning is how the white shutters perfectly match the white trim on the baseboard and the white ceiling. Those matching neutrals let the black table and the wood floor’s natural color ”pop” even more. That wasn’t Tonya’s only photo submission, however. She also shared a photo of her brand-new sliding barn door shutter! We love this barn door shutter for a number of reasons. First off, it looks fantastic. The homegrown look of the wood paneling with that smooth jet black sliding track up top give an enduring yet relaxed 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 outside the frame, Tonya can still use her window sill. For instance, if she wanted to set a flower on the sill to get sunlight, she could even close the shutter so it can soak up some rays while still controlling the light in her home. 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 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!
