Barn Doors by Rockwood Shutters

Barn Doors are more than just the latest hot interior design trend. With shows like HGTV’s Fixer Upper highlighting them in almost every episode, many top designers believe the barn door craze is here to stay.  Why are sliding barn doors so popular, you ask? Because barn doors are attention getters.  People notice them immediately and they’re a practical way to close off a room or space and yet add character and style to the room.   Up until recently, barn doors were mostly featured in either rustic or industrial designs; however, styles have expanded to include contemporary, upscale designs in a multitude of colors and wood stains.

Slim Profile Barn Doors from Rockwood Shutters are available in over 20 different design styles, and any of our paints and stains, to complement the decor in any room or space.  Rockwood’s barn doors are custom made to the specifications of your opening after a technical measure performed by one of our specialists.  And the best part – our technician returns to professionally install the sliding doors.  No worries about if you can DIY.  Rockwood handles it for you.

5 Ways Shutters Help Sell Your Home

5 Ways Shutters Help Sell Your Home from Rockwood Shutters - Shuters Help Sell Home

It is not uncommon to see interior shutters listed as an amenity in a home sale listing online. In today’s competitive real estate market, home buyers are willing to pay a premium price for homes where plantation shutters, wood shutters, or cottage shutters are already installed. Interior shutters are no longer viewed as just a decorative enhancement; they are a premier window treatment option that add to the resale value of the home.

How do shutters help sell your home?

  1. Curb Appeal – Shutters are an elegant window treatment that look as good from the outside as they do from the inside. Shutters have the ability to leave a lasting first impression of a clean uniform look and complete the design of a room.
  1. Functionality – In addition to being stylish, shutters also serve a variety of useful purposes. Shutters are built for privacy control, light control and to maximize windows views. They can be installed to cover the entire window or configured to only cover a portion of the window.
  1. Versatility – Shutters come in a variety of different designs, styles and colors. From contemporary to traditional, modern to historical, shutters blend and compliment any home decor. Home buyers can be assured that these window treatments will blend with the personal decorating style they bring into the home.   Shutters are timeless.
  1. Durability – Custom manufactured wood shutters are built with furniture quality materials and techniques and are designed to hold up to daily use and regular movement. Shutters are constructed to be a permanent fixture that will remain for the life of the home.
  1. Architecture – The current trend in home building is to create large, beautiful curved windows, small irregular shaped windows, and windows with decorative trim. These windows are created to be seen and add character to a room, not to be covered up and lost. Shutters allow you to enhance the architectural details of the window, regardless if it is a fan, arch, oval, triangle or set deep in a corner. The clean lines of shutters compliment the window’s natural beauty and style.

Interior shutters help sell your home because they are universally recognized as a premium upgrade to the design and décor of the home. Home buyers looking for a complete move-in solution are more likely to purchase a home with interior shutters because of their clean lines, durability and stylish versatility.

Rockwood Shutters Named The 2016 Top Houston Workplace

The Houston Chronicle Awarded Rockwood Shutters, Blinds & Draperies the Top Place to Work in Houston in the Mid-Size Division.

2016-Top-Workplace-Award-Rockwood-Shutters smallerRockwood Shutters, Blinds & Draperies has been awarded 2016 Top Workplace honors by The Houston Chronicle. This Houston based shutter manufacturer was named the Top Place to Work in Houston for midsize companies and also received a special award for Top Managers in Houston. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“This was our first time entering the contest so we really didn’t have any expectations.  To be honored as the top winner in our category was an absolute thrill for all of us.” Says Jen Baur, President and CEO of Rockwood Shutters.  “I love the fact that our amazing team of employees got to have their voices heard in this competition and they’re so proud to share the news with their friends and families.”

“I love the fact that our amazing team of employees got to have their voices heard in this competition.” – Jen Baur

Baur adds, “As a company, we’ve always endeavored to hire the best and brightest ‘top drawer’ talent.  Then I think we do a good job of allowing people to have their own space to grow and develop.  We’re extremely passionate about our work but it’s fun.  Our products are beautiful and transformational to people’s homes and it’s rewarding for us to be involved in that process of improvement, not only consulting with them, but making the products ourselves and then installing them in the home.  Our products bring happiness to people’s homes.  Who wouldn’t enjoy being part of that.”

Rockwood also received the Best Managers special award in the Top Workplace Awards.
