santa fe shuttersNew Mexico architecture is unique. The pueblo style homes are unlike any other style across the United States. Rounded-corners, thick walls, flat roofs and terra cotta paint tones are characteristic of the house style that defines the region. Because home style are so establish and historical in design, exterior shutters are seldom used. Rounded window corners and hardened concrete like adobe makes installation difficult. Occasionally, louvered exterior shutters are used in Albuquerque or Santa Fe for protection from sunlight and weather, security, or decoration. Although rare, exterior shutters do blend well with the pueblo facade.

Interior shutters can be an invaluable asset for homes located in warm or cold climates with intense sunlight. Interior shutters help control indoor temperatures and reduce furniture and fabric fading. Louvers rotate open to allow for light and visibility. Closed louvers provide privacy and can virtually darken any room. Plantation shutters coordinate best with a majority of the Southwest architecture.
