Customize Your Home with New UltraSatin Finish Shutters

Every home deserves to look its best — not for attention-grabbing purposes or to be the neighborhood-coveted property, but simply because of the pride and feel-good effects a well-established living space can generate. Being a homeowner is a blessing and a major accomplishment, so it only makes sense to want yours to look its finest at all times.

Spruce Up Your Home with Shutters

If you are looking to spruce up your home with shutters, consider the many features and benefits of Eclipse Shutters. Eclipse Shutters is proud to announce our all-new UltraSatin Finish interior shutters. Are you seeking elegant and timeless window treatments that stand out and command your attention when you walk through the door? If so, you will definitely want to consider upgrading to these stylish  shutters. UltraSatin finish technology is revolutionizing the way interior shutters are designed as this material matches the look of paint without the high maintenance of wood. The benefits do not stop here, however. Believe us when we say the demand for this window treatment product is going to increase by leaps and bounds, and here is why. Premium painted shutters look amazing, but like any painted surface, they are subject to fading, chipping, cracking, warping and need to be repainted every few years. Homeowners traditionally have had to deal with this trade-off if they wanted top-of-the-line window coverings, but not anymore. Ultra Satin finish offers the best of both worlds, for once treated, your interior Polyresin shutters will not require refinishing for up to 25 years. What's more, the UltraSatin finish material is moisture resistant, meaning your interior shutters can safely be installed in bathrooms and kitchens without fear of moisture damage. They will also be microbial- and fungi-resistant, a definite advantage for homes that contain high levels of humidity. There are currently three neutral color options available for the finish: cotton, pearl, and vanilla. Each looks stunning in its own right and they are ideal for creating a soothing, relaxing living space.

Facts About Shutters

There are a number of reasons why homeowners choose to install shutters in their homes. Below are three of them. Read on and you may soon find yourself a proud owner of a newly renovated home with Eclipse shutters.

Lasting Beauty

Elegant and classic, our interior shutters add a new dimension of meaning to the phrase "timeless beauty." Our shutters are extremely durable and designed to complement a wide range of home and room decor. Eclipse shutters can be used successfully in traditional, modern and even eclectic design schemes. Although they blend very well with a variety of designs without calling attention to themselves, our shutters are attractive enough to be the focal point of any room decor. Should you wish to make this so, you will find that our shutters not only enhance the beauty of your house but also add to your enjoyment of your home.

Save Money and Energy

Aside from being a beautiful addition to any room, shutters are an excellent way for homeowners to control their indoor environment. They are constructed to prevent heat gain during the summer months and heat loss during winter. This makes them amazingly energy-efficient while keeping you and your family comfortable throughout the year. You will likely notice a dip in your utility bill once you have them installed in your home. An energy-efficient house will always draw a higher price on the housing market. If you’re thinking of selling your house down the road, shutters are a great way to increase the value of your home.

A Practical Choice

A breeze to clean and built to last, faux shutters are designed for the modern family. You and your family can go about your life secure in the knowledge that with regular dusting and the occasional damp cloth, your shutters will give you many years of use and enjoyment. Call us when you’re ready for a window treatment for your home that is elegant, economical and practical. Our shutters fit the bill on all three counts.

Making a New House Feel Like Home

Congratulations, you have just finalized the most important investment of your life. You are a homeowner and are more than eager to start decorating to make the space your own. No matter if you live in a two-story Victorian or a single-story Bungalow, this part of home ownership is arguably the most exciting and stressful. You probably have a million questions running through your mind and are unsure of what step to take first, but patience and planning are the keys to decoration success.

Design the House You Want To Come Home To

Take your time and work on one room or project at a time. Tackling the seemingly massive task at hand is easier when you do so in a logistical manner. At this point, you may or may not have a sizable amount of funds lying around (hopefully you allocated a portion of your budget for design and decoration), so if money is tight, stick to the basics. Window treatments are an inexpensive necessity, so this is a probably a good place to begin. You can either mix and match window treatments or maintain a uniform look throughout the entire house. You will want to choose a product that matches your desired design theme and also safeguards your privacy. Blinds, interior shutters, curtains, and drapes are all potential material choices, and there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of subsets in each category. We did say the decoration phase is challenging, but with a little help, you should have no problem turning your current, blank slate of a house into your long-awaited dream home! The great thing about interior shutters is that they complement .every housing style. Although they were originally created for use on Southern s to promote lighting and airflow during the sweltering summer months, these window treatments have since expanded to include a vast array of styles. Regardless of where you live,  shutters are a solid window covering option. Do your best to picture your new place as a fresh canvas, one waiting to be painted with your personal style and flavor. When viewed in this light, the decorating phase is so much more exciting. You will be amazed at the transformative effects a new set of interior shutters can provide, so get busy shopping!

How to Clean Shutters

Built to last and coming with a 25-year unlimited warranty, our interior shutters are designed for many years of use and enjoyment. They are custom-made for your home and are versatile enough to complement a variety of decor. But we’ve gone one step further and made it easy for you to maintain your shutters in pristine condition.

Keep the Household Cleaners in the Closet

There is no need to use household cleaners to preserve the beauty and natural look of your shutters. Regular cleaners may contain harsh chemicals that can actually harm or damage the shutters. Unlike other brands, Eclipse Shutters' products are non-porous. This means they resist mildew or mold in high-humidity areas of the home.

Cleaning Is as Simple as Can Be

For regular cleaning, simply take a damp cloth and gently wipe the shutters with it. You can use mild soap if you wish, but if you do, run a clean cloth afterwards to make sure no soap residue is left behind. If you have hard water in your area, make sure you dry the shutters with a clean cloth to avoid nasty water spots caused by residual minerals in your water. If it’s been some time since you last cleaned your shutters, you may want to vacuum them first before wiping them down. The brush attachment of your vacuum will pick up most of the dirt and dust that has built up over time and prevent streaks across the panels when you wipe them with the wet cloth.

Window Treatment Basics

Home and room design is mostly a matter of personal taste and budget. There are many elements of style that are part and parcel of a unified decorating scheme. Window treatments are one of these style elements.

Window Treatments Can Complete a Room

There was a time when window treatment options were limited to curtains and valances. When blinds became widely available, window treatment choices became more varied. Modern designers and many regular homeowners now realize that the right window treatment can complete a room. No matter what kind of decor you want for your home, whether it's classic elegance, Bohemian chic or even the avant-garde, the right window treatment can help you achieve it.

Control Your Environment

Aside from being an expression of personal style, window treatments can also be a way for homeowners to control their indoor environment. Heavy curtains and well-installed shutters can help keep the heat out and the cold air in during hot summer days. In the winter, they can be used to maintain a cozy home atmosphere, sheltering you and your family from the harsh winter cold. The ability to control your indoor environment also gives you greater control over your energy use and consumption. The right window treatment can end up saving you money in the long run with lower utility bills.

Create a Private Space

Aside from being an element of design, window treatments also give homeowners a great measure of privacy. By simply drawing the curtains or closing the shutters, they can retreat to their private sanctuary in comfort and style, shielded from the prying eyes of the outside world. For all these reasons and many more, we urge you to find out more about our shutters. Our interior faux shutters are excellent window treatments that come in a variety of sizes and versatile shades that support and complement a wide range of home decor. The neutral colors and classic style allows you to create a personal design statement of your own. They offer superior energy-efficiency and are designed to last for many years. In fact, Eclipse Shutters come with a 25-year unlimited warranty. Call us when you’re ready to see how the right window treatment can transform a room from quite ordinary to simply out of this world!

Shutters Let Sunlight In

Nothing compares to the beauty of natural light. The invention of the incandescent light bulb revolutionized the way society operates, allowing people to work longer hours. There is no mistaking the benefits offered by contemporary lighting, but it's important to remember the warmth and illumination of natural sunlight.

Let There Be Light

While new lighting technology has been optimized for energy efficiency and cost effectiveness, the free light from the Sun will always be the cheapest! And although fluorescent bulbs are one of the brightest forms of artificial lighting, they are too hard on the eyes and can throw off the design and feel of a space.
To take advantage of the benefits provided by the Sun, we strongly advise you to invest in a set of shutters. Choosing the right window treatments can be a daunting challenge, but if your goal is to maximize the amount of available sunlight, you will be hard-pressed to find a more effective alternative. Many studies have demonstrated the dangers of excess exposure to sunlight, however, it is worth noting that underexposure is just as, if not more, hazardous. Since the dawn of time, humans have needed the rejuvenating effects of sunlight. Have you ever noticed how energized and in a better mood you feel when you go outside, or how people who work night shifts tend to suffer from sleep problems, depression and other ailments? This is why we stress the importance of proper window treatment installations. Interior shutters feature louvers that can be fully opened for superior light control. They are functional and versatile when it comes to lighting spaces naturally. With a simple movement of the tilt bar or the louvers, you can precisely adjust how much sunlight is entering the room. This has a dramatic effect on its atmosphere and mood. Let more natural sunlight in with shutters!
