Are you wanting to create great curb appeal for you home – if so, have you thought about using plantation shutters for your window dressings? They provide elegance and sophistication and have benefits beyond aesthetics.
So what are the main benefits of choosing Plantation Shutters for your windows:
Privacy – Plantation shutters provide privacy to the occupants of the home. You can also open the shutters completely to a get a full view of the scenery around you or you can shut them to block out any passers- by.
Thermal and sound Insulation – When the panel doors and louvres are closed the shutters provide a layer of sound insulation. The timber barrier insulates your room, keeping warmth in during the winter thus helping to reduce your heating bills. In the summer, opening your windows and keeping panels closed assists in keeping unwanted heat out, whilst allowing the air to circulate.
Low maintenance – Plantation shutters require low maintenance. When properly cared for, an occasional quick wipe down will keep them clean.
UV protection and flexible light control – Shutter louvres can be angled to control how much light enters a room to the extent that harmful UV rays can be directed away protecting furniture and flooring. Shutter panels can be fully opened back to allow a clear view through the window letting the light through. The shutters themselves are finished with an invisible UV protective layer, protecting the paint or wood stain finish from fading and prevents the panels from warping.
Long Life Span – Plantation shutters are built from natural wood and it has a very long life span. Unlike other window dressings that need to be changed every few years, if looked after correctly shutters will not need to change at all.
Custom Fit – Due to their bespoke finish, shutters can be made to fit almost any shaped window, including arched windows, circular windows, or diamond shaped. You can choose the slat size, the colour, the material and the mounting options, therefore providing a unique product for each customer.
