Highlighting Spring 2017s Share Your Shutters Winner05/08/2017Kevin McCormack Spring is blowing by here in Jacksonville, but we haven’t forgotten about our regularly scheduled 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 home features some stunning new Polywood® plantation shutters in the dining room. Since her shutters are shut, you can really get a glimpse of how well plantation shutters can really help you control light. Envision that dining room with some softer lighting; it’s almost a great setting for a personal candlelit dinner, right? With plantation shutters in your dining room like Tonya has, you can express that exact mood at any time of day. Take a look at how the white shutters perfectly match the white trim on the baseboard as well as 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 brand-new sliding barn door shutter! We love this barn door shutter for a lot of reasons. First off, it looks fantastic. The rustic look of the wood with that smooth black sliding track above give a timeless yet comfortable look. What we like even more than the shutters’ looks is how practical it is. Her barn door shutter sits off the window frame, so it can control the light levels while still letting the window open and close. 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 some flowers on the sill to get sunlight, she’s even able to close the shutter to let it soak up some rays while still blocking sun glare from outside. Tonya tells us that this is the third time she’s chosen window treatments from Sunburst Shutters, and we want to thank her for her continued support in choosing us for all her shutter needs. For being selected as our Share Your Shutters feature this quarter, Tonya received a $100 gift card to a restaurant in her area. Think your shutters should be featured here? Show them off! Share a photo of your home featuring your shutters with the hashtag #ShareYourShutters, or post a photo on our Facebook page. We’d love to showcase some shutters from a Floridian next time! Or if looking at Tonya’s home makes you think your house is missing something, we’d love to help.
