The Benefits of Plantation Shutters

11 January 2022

Plantation shutters have style. They are so named because they were often found in the impressive mansions at the centre of huge plantations. The folks back then knew what they were doing! But good looks definitely aren’t the only qualities these window coverings have going for them. A permanent fixture based around chunky timber louvres, they offer many benefits, just some of which we will list below…

Light Control

Plantation shutters are great at controlling the level of light or noise coming into a room from outside. If you want a living or working space that can switch from nice and bright to very private, then these are the shutters for the job.

Plantation shutters bring style to any space

Yes, plantation shutters come with an extensive range of practical benefits. But another key advantage (and one of the top reasons property owners opt for plantation shutters) is of course because of the way they look. The sleek and stylish appearance of plantation shutters will blend seamlessly with any style of home and they are sure to bring an added level of sophistication.

Easier to Clean/Maintain

Plantation shutters aren’t difficult or time-consuming to clean. They’re less susceptible to damage than other solutions like Venetians or vertical blinds, too, so you won’t find yourself trying to fix blades/strips that have become bent out of shape. We’re talking solid wooden louvres here, remember?

Sound Investment

While the initial cost may be higher than for some other window coverings, plantation shutters will pay you back over the long term. We’ve just mentioned their durability in the previous point. There’s also the fact that they never go out of fashion, so you won’t find yourself wanting to change them for style reasons. And being so widely popular ensures their presence will add value to your home or office.

Give the Finishing Touch

Made from quality timber that’s been perfectly fitted to your window(s), choose plantation shutters if you’re after maximum impact. Being available in an array of colours and stains, they can fit in with any décor. Plantation shutters look like they are part of the design of a space rather than merely an afterthought. Nobody ever walked into a room and said, “Oh, I love your old blinds!” It’s a different story with these timelessly classy shutters.
