With the holidays are here and upon us, it's a great reason to get your Sacramento home in order for visitors. Of course, there’s the usual trees lights and present wrapping that has to be completed before company is allowed in. But is your house, itself, ready to go? Or does it need some new chairs, lights and energy-efficient plantation shutters?

If you think your guests deserve an inviting atmosphere, try some of these ways to improve your home for the holidays.

Dress Your Windows With Energy-Efficient Interior Shutters

But if you install plantation shutters over your windows, you give your home a finished touch that also highlights your holiday decorations. Interior shutters also can effectively restrict sun glare from sunrise to sunset. They are especially nice in places like the dining room, so no one has to eat their turkey dinner with a harsh sunset hitting them in their eyes.

By improving your Sacramento home for the holidays by installing shutters, you attain both style and energy-efficiency. That’s because when the cold wind starts blowing, you can shut the treatments and get an energy-efficient benefit. Plantation shutters are known as the premier window coverings to block air flowing through your windows -- so you keep the nice temperatures inside and the cold air out.

Of course, if you want to pair energy-efficiency with durability, you should use a faux wood treatment, like our Polywood® plantation shutters. Polywood is up to 70% more energy-efficient than wood shutters and up to 1600% more energy-efficient than cheap aluminum blinds. You are able to even cover your arched and oval shaped windows with Polywood plantation shutters, which ensures that each window will look stylish while still keeping the room toasty.

Once your windows are adequately covered, you should look at what your friends will be seated on. If your furniture pieces are beginning to come apart, the holidays can be a great time to upgrade. By upgrading a worn-out sofa, or adding a few leather chairs by the fire, you can make a style that’s perfect for family photos. Plus, your friends will be more comfortable sitting on something that wasn’t purchased during the Great Depression. After all, that book won’t level your couch forever.
