Man seeks things which are pleasing to the eyes. It is one of the reasons why we would do all we can to look pretty not for other people's eyes but for our own as well. Some of us would even buy beautiful branded clothes and accessories which are way beyond our budget just for the sake of looking good. Narcissistic as it may sound but it is human nature to want to look our best at all times. It boosts our confidence and most importantly it makes us feel good about ourselves.
Other than the beautiful clothes and accessories we wear, we also take pride and joy in having a beautiful home. We would adorn it with art pieces, flowers, pictures anything that will make it as pretty as it can be. But we should not only decorate it, we should also ensure that we are safe in our home. Fortunately, some things are not just pretty but can be useful as well just like the board and batten exterior shutters. The board and batten shutter plans were used for protection first before they were discovered to have an aesthetic value. These exterior shutters were used to protect our homes from burglars and from bad weather conditions. But unlike the board and batten wood shutters used by our forefathers, the present designs are far more durable. They do not split or crack as well. This is some beautiful wood work that we want to decorate and protect our home.
Those beautiful expensive clothes and accessories may bring us beauty and joy but only temporarily. Investing in our home sounds reasonable though. It is only right that we should keep our home well-maintained and in order at all times. It is not just for pride alone but for our security as well. After all, our house is our legacy to our children.
