Plantation shutters are fitted to a window frame and can be opened much like a door.
There are many benefits to adding shutters to a home. They have a classic aesthetic, which contributes to a sense of style. Beyond their visual appeal, however, shutters have a number of functional benefits as well. They provide excellent insulation in extreme temperatures and can actually help to save energy by controlling how much natural light enters a room. They are also highly durable and resistant to UV rays — this makes them a long-term investment. When it comes to choosing shutters for your house, there are a range of options available, one of the most popular is plantation shutters. Read on to find out about this style, and why it is worth considering for your home…
What are plantation shutters?
Plantation shutters are an increasingly popular alternative to traditional curtains and blinds. They have wooden louvers, which are tilted at an angle. These louvers look much like the slats on traditional blinds. Plantation shutters differ from blinds, however, in that they are attached directly to the window frame. In fact, plantation shutters can be opened in much the same way as a door.
Plantation shutters can be fabricated in a range of materials. Usually, they are made from wood, but it is also possible to have plantation shutters made from modern materials like vinyl and MDF. Plantation shutters are available in a variety of colours and stains. The shade that you choose will depend on the aesthetic you would like to achieve for your home.
What are the benefits of plantation shutters?
Plantation shutters can be custom-made, which means that they will fit your windows perfectly. They are also relatively easy to install. In fact, shutters require just one instalment, and don’t need to be reinstalled every few years as they generally maintain their condition in the long-term. One of the best things about plantation shutters is that they are highly durable. Even with very little maintenance, your plantation shutters should last for many years and will not warp and fade over time.
Because plantation shutters can open out like a door, it is possible to let a considerable amount of natural light into your indoor space. This can help to create the illusion of more space. Shutters can also provide insulation, as well as privacy. Shutters can also be helpful in blocking out unwanted noise from outside the home.
Another advantage of plantation shutters is that they are very easy to clean. In fact, very little special care is required and a regular dusting and wipe down is usually sufficient in keeping dirt at bay.
