A Brief History of Window Shutters

Where do Shutters Originate From?

Window shutters have remained popular for years, because of their durability, the easy maintenance and of course their classic and clean look.  Their origin is believed to have begun with Greece and the Mediterranean for protection from the tropical weather. As their usage spread they moved from marble to wood with movable louver for light and ventilation. This update on the design allowed for variation in not only light, but temperature as well as privacy. It has continued to evolve up to today.

At Villa Blind and Shutter we specialize in blinds and shutters in the Corona and Newport Beach area. We want to help you keep your home beautiful and full of light or dark and cozy.

How to Clean Your Blinds

Easy Maintenance For Your Blinds

Blinds and shutters collect dust just like everything else in a house, but they are often one of the most neglected parts of the home cleaning process. We are going to provide you with some useful tips to keep your blinds and shutters in top shape.

  • Real Wood Blinds
    • Some furniture polish and a soft clean sock will get these blinds looking brand new.
  • Faux-Wood Blinds
    • The best way to get this type of blind clean is to invest in a vacuum with a dust brush. It’s simple and fast.
    • If your blinds are in the kitchen, the dust is likely to be mixed with grease making it more difficult to remove. For this use a clean sock dipped in a mixture of white vinegar and water to wipe the blinds with.
