What are Bahama shutters?
Bahama shutters consist of single-piece louvered shutters fixed above a window. They are unique due to their top-hinged design which allows you to push them outwards. Most of the other window shutters open from the side to open and close. This design makes it easier to shut close when a storm approaches. They are secured to the wall unlike other shutter systems making them stronger.
You can choose from a variety of shutter materials, colors, sizes to suit your home. This flexibility makes Bermuda shutters popular for customization. Whatever the type of home you have, it’s possible to utilize the beauty and functionality of this exterior window treatment.

“My 9-Step Process and Guarantee is Why I Know You'll Love Working with Me!”
Here’s a simple step-by-step process of how we’ll work together and what to expect:
We’ll start with a phone conversation to get acquainted and I can learn about your project. We’ll discuss you and your family’s lifestyle. And I’ll have you describe your home and current interior styling and colors.
I’ll ask if you’ve seen and liked any specific window treatment styles on TV, in magazines, online, or at a friend’s home. Knowing all of this helps me prepare and present the right options for our first meeting.
I’ll also ask if you have a budget in mind? This is very important and it helps me to determine the framework for my design expertise as it applies to your situation. It’s important to me to not waste your time and disappoint you. For example, if you want seven double sets of plantation shutters and your budget is $2,000, I can tell you upfront, that it’s not possible. But with that information, I can show you all the beautiful ways a $2,000 budget will also achieve your goals.
At the end of our initial phone conversation, I’ll schedule a meeting with you to present product suggestions and take rough measurements of the areas you want window treatments for.
Within 24-hours of our meeting, I’ll prepare a proposal for you to review and approve.
If you decide to move forward, I’ll need to collect a 50% deposit. I accept all major credit cards. And I can even offer 0% financing!
I’ll schedule a second visit to have my installer come to your home or business to take precise measurements. He will analyze the walls and surfaces to determine the best approach for your installation.
Once final measurements are taken, I’ll prepare a factory order and will request payment for the balance. I’ll also give you an estimated installation date.
We will do a seamless and professional installation with full clean-up – afterward, you won’t even know we were there! All you’ll need to do is enjoy the beauty of your spectacular new window treatments!
