Why Plantation Shutters
Plantation Shutters are not only popular because they look great, they’re an incredibly practical solution as well!
Plantation Shutters are right at home in a wide range of interior design styles. From minimalist and modern through to coastal or country. The versatility of interior plantation shutters makes them an excellent addition to any home. Adding value and offering prospective buyers yet another feature to look to.
Plantation shutter designs are built to last. A classic design combined with durable materials means plantation shutters stand the test of time. From Polymate Shutters you can fit yourself, to PVC and classic timber, you can find it all here with us at Gold Coast Blinds & Shutters.
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.
The simple horizontal louvre design of plantation shutters makes them easy to control. Permitting easy adjustment for both light and privacy. A small change in the angle of the slats will give you privacy whilst not blocking your view. Continuing to allow natural light to flow into your home. Whilst not 100% blockout, when the slats are completely closed 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. They allow you to take greater control of the natural light that enters your home, and even help keep your living spaces ventilated while providing shade!
