25 Mar 2011 Sunroom with Plantation Shutters

What a pleasure it was to help and to get to know Royce Edwards.  His home in Kure Beach, NC was stunning and it was a delight to be able to assist him with several of his Home Décor needs.  While we had the privilege in furnishing his home with Hurricane Shutters, Plantation Shutters, and Closet Systems, it was the Sunroom that I really felt had been transformed by the new Plantation Shutters.

Mr. Edwards has tilt-in windows and wanted to maintain this feature, but also wanted Plantation Shutters for this particular room without losing his beautiful, lakeside view.  His biggest challenge was that his windows, as is the case in many homes, were extremely out of square.  This was due to the sunroom, at one time, had previously been an outdoor porch and many times, the framing of such porches is greatly out of square.

In order to meet his needs, Mr. Edwards chose a 3 ½” louvered Plantation Shutter with a hidden tilt rod throughout the room.  The wider the louver, the fewer there are, therefore, by choosing this larger sized louver, the view was much less obstructed. In addition, by choosing to have the tilt rod hidden, meaning it is placed on the back and over to the side of the panel rather than centered on the front, this also made the view more enjoyable. 

Although the windows were not squared, our knowledgeable Consultants and skilled Installers were able to turn what may have seemed impossible to possible by installing the shutters with the proper framing. This helped make the out of square windows appear to be square and normal looking. In doing so, Mr. Edwards was able to obtain the look he desired, while still preserving his tilt-in feature.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Royce Edwards and in helping him make his Sunroom a sanctuary in which he can relax for years to come.
