Plantation shutters, interior shutters that run the entire length of your windows, are one of the most elegant choices a homeowner can make in window coverings. Especially stunning in older homes, these shutters offer more benefits than mere looks, though. Here are just some of the many benefits of installing plantation shutters on your windows.
Fit, Flexibility, and Privacy
Because plantation shutters come in a wide range of shapes, you can use them in bespoke designer windows as well as the rectangular ones. Whether you have hexagonal, octagonal, arched, shaped, or circular windows, you can order plantation shutters that fit—and fit well. Not only that, plantation shutters are a flexible solution to light control. When the summer sun is at its height, you can open them just a bit to keep the light from overpowering you. In the evenings, you can shut them completely for privacy.
Low Maintenance, Insulation, and Hypo-Allergenic Construction
Plantation shutters are easy to maintain. Just a quick wipe with a damp cloth or special cleaning solution will keep dust at bay. Compared to curtains, plantation shutters are the best choice for families who have people with allergies living there. Dust tends to build up in curtains, providing a feast for dust mites. As for insulation, just close the louvres and panel doors, and you’ll have an extra layer of insulation, a boon in both winter and summer when insulation is a must.
A Wide Range of Shutter Materials and Styles Elevate Design Factor
Because plantation shutters come in so many colours and designs, you can order just the right one to accent your home’s interior, adding a touch of Old-World class to any home. Timber and aluminium plantation shutters, custom designed for your home’s windows, will enhance the “wow factor” inside your home. Install plantation shutters in all your home’s front windows for fabulous curb appeal passers-by can notice all the way from the street.
