Plantation shutters are an investment that will last many years and add value to your home. There are many ways to customize your shutters with different louver sizes and panel configurations. Тalking with a pro about how you use your windows and how much light and view you want is the best way to get the look and function you desire.



Buyer’s Guide

Deciding on Functionality

Once you have decided what kind of functionality you need from a window treatment, you can begin the process of selecting individual designs and customizations. There are several solutions to suit every budget and home. Some questions to consider are: Do I need to control or block the sun at certain times of the day? Do I need privacy? Do I just want something that looks good and adds to the décor? Is it a combination of these things?


Exterior window treatments such as stationary louvered shutters, Bahama style shutters or board and batten shutters add style and color to the exterior of your home. Custom-fit exterior shades can add value to your entertainment areas. Installing exterior solar shades on screened porches can make it easier to enjoy your outdoor space while blocking sun, heat, and glare from outdoor tvs.


Several interior window treatments have a range of functionalities. Whether you would like to keep cool in the heat of summer or stay warm in winter, there is a vast range of options on the market.

Products ranging from light filtering shades to blackout drapes can offer different levels of privacy and control the amount of light allowed to come into your home. It’s important to think about how you live in your house when choosing window coverings.

If you have a view you love and want to enjoy, but you just need privacy at night, a good option would be a shade that raises up completely out of the way during the day to keep your view open and then pulls down at night to provide privacy. If you do not like your windows completely open, a blind or shutter will be a better fit since it’s usually always in your window and just allows you to open or close the louvers to control light.

A good salesperson will ask questions to assess your needs and then make suggestions based on how you will use the products.


Manual Vs. Motorized

With many homes making the switch to smart or automated home services, there are endless opportunities for your window treatments. Automated and motorized window treatments can help you control your privacy and home climate with the touch of a button. Motorized products also come in handy for covering those hard-to-reach windows like in tall foyers or in vaulted ceiling rooms or even the windows over the bathtub.

Speaking to a technician at Van Gogh Window Fashions can help you decide what best suits your requirements and budget. We have options from hardwired and plug-in shades to battery-operated motors to rechargeable motors to fit most budgets.

Window Coverings for Custom Windows

As each building can have windows and skylights of varying shapes and sizes, it is crucial to consider choosing a custom-fit solution for your home or business. Van Gogh Window Fashions can assess your needs and budget while helping you design an elegant and long-lasting solution for your windows.

There truly is no such thing as a “standard size” window and even two windows that look the same size can be off by as much as an inch which will make a big difference in the way the product will fit in your window. With custom design help Van Gogh Window Fashions will add value to the property by making sure your window treatments fit correctly without breaking your bank. Each window covering is one of a kind;

Van Gogh will consider your daily use and requirements to create the best solution that will stand the test of time.

“Van Gogh did the shutters for our home almost 10 years ago. The service, quality and price were excellent. Cary Miller was helpful in advising us in choosing what was best for our house. 10 years later and we are still pleased. We highly recommend Van Gogh!”
“Van Gogh’s shutters are made with the several elements that are superior to the typically marketed shutter. Cary and team did a superb job of measuring and installing our shutters, and the craftsmanship really shows. I highly recommend them.”
“We had a wonderful experience with Van Gogh Window Fashions!  The team that gave fashion design advice and measured and the team that installed went above our expectations. We had a skylight that had irregular slope sides and the chief installer designed and built a special frame that looks fantastic and covers the irregular edges beautifully! We highly recommend Vangoghwindows.”
