Announcing Our Spring Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Tyler Jorgensen We’re moving through springtime here in San Antonio, 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 space. Tonya’s house features some beautiful new Polywood® plantation shutters in her dining room. Because her shutters are shut, you can really get a glimpse of how much control plantation shutters really give you over your lighting. Imagine that dining room with some softer lighting; it’s almost a great setting for a personal candlelit dinner, right? With plantation shutters in your house, you can capture the mood you want no matter what it’s like outside. Also of note is how the white shutters perfectly match the white trim near the floors as well as the white ceiling. Those neutral accents let the black table and the hardwood floor’s natural color shine even more. That wasn’t Tonya’s only photo submission, however. 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 panel with that sleek jet black sliding track above give a timeless 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 allowing the window to easily open and shut. Because the 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 some plants on the sill to get sunlight, she’s even able to close the shutter so it can soak up some rays while still blocking sun glare from outside. According to Tonya this is the third time they’ve chosen window treatments from Sunburst Shutters, 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 received a $100 gift card to a restaurant in her area. Think your shutters should be featured here? We want to see them!
