Plantation Shutters For Windows.

There is a growing interest for plantation shutters and are one of the oldest forms of window coverings. They have a timeless design that evokes images of colonial United States, and offer a ton of style and function. So it is no surprise that many homeowners realize they are a great alternative to traditional blinds and curtains. Plantation shutters offer the same versatility as traditional blinds and shades as well as a classic design that can perfectly complement any décor. If you are considering getting plantation shutters for your home, here are a few things to convince you it is the right choice.

Explore The Benefits

Stylish

Of course, one of the main reasons plantation shutters are so popular is because of their versatile style. Windows with plantation shutters have a classic, sophisticated, and elegant country-style vibe that will never go out of fashion. This might be the reason why they have been around for centuries. Plantation shutters aren't just one of the best window treatments for homes that have traditional styles and architectural elements, they also pair well and add a bit of character to homes with modern and contemporary designs. They are not just great for windows and sliding doors, either. Plantation shutters on French doors and patio doors can upgrade the look of a home as well. They come in a wide range of materials and styles and can easily enhance the look of any room

Durable and Easy To Maintain

Plantation shutters are made from sturdy materials such as wood, composite, or vinyl, and are resistant to wear and tear. This means they will not damage easily and they only require the occasional dusting or pat down with a damp cloth to be maintained. Even in the unfortunate event that a slat breaks, you can easily replace the slat without touching the entire frame. This is why they offer the lowest maintenance of any window treatment. And, depending on the material, you can expect your plantation shutters to last for decades.

Energy Efficient

Energy efficiency is another benefit that comes with plantation shutters. Because they are designed to seal perfectly around existing window frames, they are a good solution for insulating your home, letting in fresh air when you need it, blocking out heat during summer, and stopping chilly drafts from entering during winter. Not only that but plantation shutters, because of how they are designed, also give you total control over the amount of light you want to let in. With a touch of the tilt rod, you can go from total darkness to full light, to anywhere in between. This can no doubt save you some of the expenses of having to use artificial lighting.

Provide Privacy and Security

Privacy can be difficult for homes that back up to a street or are adjacent to another house.  This can be an issue if you want to let natural light into your room but are concerned about the neighbors seeing you. Plantation shutters are a great solution for this problem because their bottom louvers can be closed while the top ones remain open to allow sunlight into the room. The louvers can also be tilted at an angle to block views from the outside while still allowing light to pass.

Increased Home Value

Plantation shutters are an affordable way to increase the value of your home. Not only do they improve insulation, privacy, and security, they also add to your home's overall curb appeal. This makes them very desirable to potential buyers. So if you are planning to sell your home, plantation shutters can be an excellent investment. In addition, since they are custom and cannot be moved from home to home after they have been installed, plantation shutters are considered a permanent fixture and are appraised as an additional feature that increases the value of the home.

Blocks Noise

While they will not block out noise as well as conspicuous and expensive soundproofing material will, you will be able to block a good amount of external noise with plantation shutters, especially if they're made from thick, high-quality material. This is because plantation shutters are tailored to create a seal on the window sill that lets very little sound pass through. If they are made of wood, plantation shutters will work better than curtains and blinds for soundproofing because, like doors, they have the ability to shut completely. So if you live in a place where external noise is an issue, make sure to consider the quality and thickness of the material for wooden plantation shutters since this will affect how much sound gets through.
