5 Reasons to Use Plantation Shutters in Your Home

Are you considering new window furnishings for your home but aren’t sure where to start? These days, many homeowners are considering plantation shutters, as they are incredibly beautiful and functional. They also offer your home superior protection against the elements. Whilst there are many reasons why you should choose these shutters over other furnishings, we have outlined the 5 main ones that we believe are the most important.

1.   Appearance
Many homeowners believe that plantation shutters are the crème de la crème of window furnishings – they are a highly attractive option that is sure to complement any décor and era. There are also a number of material and colour options available, allowing you to match the blades to your space perfectly. Visitors to your home will notice the clean lines and understated elegance of the furnishings.

2.   Light Control
These shutters are actually similar to blinds in that they provide you with maximum control of sunlight in your home. During the day, you can allow as much light as possible to flood the space. When napping, you can block the sun completely to create a comfortable sleeping environment. They will also allow you to control the direction of the sunlight; it can, for example, be directed at the ceiling to help reduce glare.

3.   Low Maintenance
One of the best things about these shutters is that they are incredibly durable and low maintenance. The only cleaning that is required is a good dusting and an occasional wipe down with warm water and dishwashing liquid. You will find that stains don’t take hold very often, especially if you wipe up spills immediately, and that most dirt is not very noticeable. All you need to do is sit back and relax.

4.   No Nonsense
Some homeowners find blinds irritating when they become well worn or after being exposed to the elements. Because these shutters don’t require cords or chains to operate the slats, there will be no frustrating battles with tangled or broken cords. They are also secured to the window frame, eliminating the annoying way that blinds move with the breeze and clatter against the frame (potentially damaging it).

5.   Privacy
The same maneuverability that allows you to control natural sunlight with plantation shutters can also be used to control the privacy of your home. Unlike curtains, there are varying levels of privacy available without compromising on sunlight penetration. When getting dressed, for example, the blades can be angled towards the ceiling or the floor so that passersby cannot see through them.

Whilst there are plenty of other reasons why you should consider the installation of plantation shutters in your home, we believe that the 5 outlined above are the most beneficial (and we want you to discover the rest for yourself!). Once you have made the decision to have these shutters installed, we want to stress the importance of having them custom made – not only will they be the perfect fit for your windows, they will stand the test of time.
