Updating window treatments is the best decision you can make when you’re looking to revamp work or home spaces and want to avoid expensive remodeling prices. Bringing in new window treatments has many benefits and work for any and every room. From light control and elevated privacy to that fresh, brand new feel, instantly renovate the moment with new window treatments.


A room without window coverings feels naked, like a plain white canvas in a picture frame. The light shines in brightly. Privacy is nonexistent and the room appears barren because it is. Don’t be plain, instead, let Best Buy Shutters get stunning new shutters or blinds up on your windows. We’ve helped many in the Las Vegas area find that perfect fit, whether it was shutters, blinds, or shades. We got them covered and we will help you too!


Cost plays a big factor when it comes to making your final decision. It’s possible to find an efficient, versatile, and beautiful treatment on a budget, especially when you’re shopping with us. We have one of the largest selections of blinds in Vegas, but most importantly, we are the only local shutter factory. There is no need to worry about delays in shipping and costly added handling charges when your window treatment experts and shutter manufacturers are located right here near you.


There’s a lot more involved than upfront prices. Think about maintenance and upkeep and other long-term expenses that come your way. When you’re deciding between shutters and blinds, we’ve got experts to hear about your specific needs and to help make your decision easier. Let’s take a look at both options: shutters and blinds.


Blinds have been a favorable window treatment for decades. Their affordable prices and excellent functionality make them a great choice for people looking to get something new up on their windows. Blinds work well in any environment: residential, commercial, business, you name it. They are long-lasting, very versatile, and are available in varieties of styles, materials, and finishes.

Additional reasons to love blinds include:

  • Last 7-8 years
  • Easy operation
  • Easy maintenance
  • Light control
  • Privacy control
  • Countless styles
  • Lightweight
  • Able to span long distances to cover wide and large windows
  • Affordable

It is simple to find quality, budget-friendly blinds at Best Buy Shutters. The hardest part is picking up the phone and giving us a call.


Think of shutters as the stronger sibling to blinds. Shutters are highly durable and solid. There is no doubt about how stunning these window treatments are, but once you have them up on your windows, it’ll be love at first sight.

In the beginning, shutters cost more than blinds. They are manufactured with more durable materials and have a complex construction to ensure ultimate strength. Although they are more expensive than blinds, in the long-run, you actually save more when you have shutters!

Here’s how shutters save you money:

Increase value on your home

Shutters are a permanent window fixture which means they are not typically taken with you when you decide to leave your home. Once installed, they belong to the home’s windows and since they were custom-made to fit those windows, it only makes sense. As permanent fixtures, they add value to the homes they occupy. And when you’re trying to sell the home, they offer appeal to potential buyers. The fact you already have shutters installed while other competitors might not gives you the edge.

Lower Energy Bills

These window treatments have the best insulation properties so far. Shutters are mounted directly and tightly to window frames, creating spaces that make air gaps to slow heat transfer which stabilizes and lowers the cost of your electric bill. Outside air does not creep in and inside air won’t escape outward. It’s really beneficial in the summer when you want to shut out 100-degree heat, and in winter when you want to keep in warm 72 degree air.


Blinds last anywhere from 7-8 years, but shutters double that span. Shutters can easily last anywhere from 15-20 years. Obviously, regular maintenance helps keep them looking young, but it’s their strong materials and durability that give them their long lifespan. If you have kids or furry friends, shutters are your best choice; no more broken slats, rips, and tears.

Best Buy Shutters

We’re not saying one window treatment is better than the other, we’re simply supplying information to help you weigh out options. Both blinds and shutters are wonderful treatments offering great perks, but the final decision belongs to you. Remember, you are never alone in this process, Best Buy Shutters is always here when you need window treatment advice and when you have questions or concerns.
