We recently introduced you to 8 of our favorite styles of exterior home shutters and gave you an overview of each one, including one of the rising stars of shutters in the Nashville area- Bahama Shutters.
Bahama shutters are louvered shutters that are fixed to the home at the top of the window rather than the sides. They can be propped open to guard against direct sunlight while still letting gentle breezes blow through a house.
Bahama shutters were originally used in tropical regions (for protection against storms). This look has long since taken over the USA and has become a favorite here. They look wonderful on Cape Cod, ranch and cottage style homes in Nashville, Franklin, Brentwood, Murfreesboro, TN and beyond!
Here are our top 4 reasons to add Bahama Shutters to your Nashville Area Home
Bahama Shutters Add Beauty
Bahama shutters have become increasingly popular across the mid-south during the past decade along with the popularity of Caribbean and beach style homes. Busy Nashville area professionals, families and retirees have decided they want the look and feel of a beach house all year long, not just 2 weeks in the summer!
Bahama shutters are an excellent way to add that beach house look to any Middle TN home without breaking the bank.
Bahama Shutters Add Privacy
Because of the increase in property value, a booming real estate market and economy, Middle TN homes are now being built on zero-acre lots. The benefits of this are larger homes that are custom made. The downside – loss of privacy. Your indoor-outdoor space is often in full view of your neighbor’s space. Bahama shutters can give you the privacy you desire while keeping the indoor/ outdoor experience.
Bahama Shutters Add Protection From Storms
Let’s face it, Middle TN has seen its share of fierce winds, heavy rain and powerful storms over the past decade. Since Bahama shutters hinge on the top of the window, they can be closed quickly and easily to prepare for oncoming storms, and protect your indoor/outdoor space from damage.
Bahama Shutters Add Energy Efficiency
Because of the top-hinged design of Bahama shutters, you can more easily control the angle and amount of air you want flowing in your space. This allows you to use your shutters during all 4 seasons at various levels of opening!
