Millenium Shutters and Blinds understands that there are specific concerns when choosing optimal design elements in cottage country.
Choosing the perfect design elements for your cottage is key to making your retreat cozy and inviting. Custom stains and rustic hardware can really add to its appeal. Continuity of finishes and decor add to the simplicity and leisure of the cottage lifestyle and make your space enjoyable and beautiful both inside and out.
Seasonal property owners should always have security in mind. Exterior (lockable) shutters provide security from both theft and the weather outside. Interior shutters also provide cottage owners with added security from these elements. When leaving the cottage, closing the shutters provides a visual barrier to your valuables and also provides an insulating factor from cold and protection from harmful UV rays on your interior finishes and furniture.
Summer is great at the cottage, but the summer sun and heat can be a challenge! Having adjustable shutters to control the amount of light and heat from the sun is a bonus. A simple tilt up or down (depending on where the sun is) can allow cottagers to control light and heat penetration without giving up the beautiful view they are there to enjoy!
Taking advantage of natural resources is a way of life at the cottage. Wood fires, lake water and sunshine are some elements cottagers use to save money on expensive cottage utility bills. Custom wood shutters have a natural insulating factor and are installed with precision to keep the cold out in winter. Their adjustability also lets cottagers control light and temperature throughout the year.
Cottages and Chalets often have unique designs that include oddly shaped windows. Although beautiful, these windows can present a challenge when it comes time to choose window treatments. Millenium Shutters craftsmen are well known throughout cottage country for their unique solutions to any window shapes. We have never lost a challenge yet!
Let’s face it, the views in cottage country are breathtaking and not to be missed! Millenium Shutters allow you to ‘Have Your View and Shutter It Too’, providing you with the best of both worlds!
