Plantation shutters might feel like something from a bygone era, but many people are still choosing plantation shutters over other options, and there are a few good reasons why, as outlined below.
Long Lasting Option
Plantation shutters are unique as they don’t fade due to aging or the sun’s UV rays and this is because they are made in a variety of materials from natural wood to aluminum and PVC, with PVC being the strongest. Even if a shutter gets damaged you don’t need to replace the mounting, you only need to change out the blades, and you are often given replacement blades as part of the package.
So Easy To Clean
All you need to do to clean your plantation shutters is a damp cloth to wipe down the blades themselves or a hand duster for dusting. You don’t need to take them down and wash them like you would curtains either.
A Wide Variety on The Market
You may not think plantation shutters come in a lot of variety, but the reality is that they do. You can opt for different coverages such as full or half windows, they can be made into pretty much any shape and you can go or fold panels that open in various ways or shutter-like styles too.
If you want security for your home there is an option to add locks to the shutter openings to prevent entry from trespassers, and this can give you peace of mind overall in knowing your home is safe and people with ill intent can’t look in.
Save Energy Costs
A well-fit pair of plantation shutters can save on your energy bills. As they are snug to your windows, they keep the cold weather out in the winter and let the sun in during the summer, meaning your heating bill goes down, and often, so does your AC bill.
Your Home Looks Stunning
Plantation shutters are a unique-looking option for your space, drapes and curtains can take up a lot of the visual area of the room, but shutters are contained and give you a more airy spacious appearance, which is perfect for smaller homes.
