Timber shutters are a popular choice for those in Black Rock because of their aesthetic and control over light, temperature, privacy and ventilation in the home. Sheers are also a popular choice, allowing lots of natural light into the home. Sheers have a soft aesthetic and visibility outside while providing privacy during the daylight hours.
