Seeing Shutters for the First Time

Last month, a friend of mine decided to have a cookout and I was invited. I know he hates it when other people bring food to his cookouts, so I just opted to bring a couple cases of sodas. While in his home, I noticed that his windows looked different. He told me that he found an plantation shutters company and they put them into the windows. This was the first time that I had seen a home with shutters up close and they looked good. I asked my friend for the name of the company just in case I wanted to get shutters.

While I was at the cookout, I couldn’t help but think about the shutters, even while I was having fun. As soon as I got home, I went to the company’s website and looked at all of the shutter choices they had. There was one particular style that I just had to have, so I contacted the company and asked them if they could come over for a window measurement and price estimate. They scheduled an appointment for the next day and I thought about how the new shutters would look on my windows.

After the measurement and estimate, the shutters were installed, and I looked at them for an hour without moving because I was so impressed by them. I just had to show the shutters off, so I called all of my friends over for a gathering. I didn’t tell them about the shutters, because I wanted to see if they could figure out what was different about my home. Interestingly enough, only one person asked about the shutters, and it was the same friend who told me about the company that put the shutters in his home. Once he mentioned it, everyone else started to ask about the shutters.
