Plantation Shutters are not only popular because they look great, they’re actually really practical as well.
Plantation Shutters are right at home in a wide range of interior design styles. From minimalist and modern to coastal or country. Since shutters are so versatile they’re great for adding value to your home. Many home buyers consider shutters a massive bonus. Also, when Plantation shutters are fitted to the front windows, it really helps to boost your home’s street appeal.
Shutters are built to last. A classic design combined with durable materials means plantation shutters stand the test of time. We’ve seen well maintained shutters still looking great after more than 20 years. Compare this to blinds that tend to look a little shabby after 5 years or curtains when the colour or print has gone out vogue.
Also, the simple horizontal louvre design of plantation shutters make it easy to control both light and privacy. A small change in the angle of the blades will give you privacy whilst not blocking your view and still allowing natural light to flow into your home. Whilst not 100% blockout, when the blades are completely closed the the room darkening of shutters is comparable to most blinds on the market and more than suitable for use in bedrooms.
Compared to curtains and other fabric blinds, plantation shutters are a breeze to clean.
One of the best things about shutters is that you can still keep the heat out whilst maintaining your privacy with your windows open. No annoying banging or flapping of fabric.
