Why Choose Plantation Shutters for Your Home

Of all window treatments, the plantation shutter is one of the most desirable. In many ways, they provide the kind of function you can’t easily get from curtains, drapes, or blinds. They also bring home value since many people prefer them to other window treatment options.

Plantation Shutters

Why choose these shutters to complement your windows? The BlindBroker shares some practical reasons:

They Control Light and View Better

Plantation shutters generally have wider louvers than “traditional” ones. In turn, they allow a profusion of natural light and keep the view open to the outside while raising your level of indoor privacy. Considering the today’s trend lean toward adequate daylighting and abundant outdoor views, plantation shutters make a sound window treatment choice.

Draperies, curtains, or blinds usually don’t offer the best trade-offs among light, view, and privacy. You’d normally have to give up a little bit of something or be extra creative with the design to get them all when desired. Any experienced shutter contractor would say that even average plantation shutters wouldn’t deprive you of any of them, making your rooms more livable.

They Contribute to Insulation and UV Protection

Since plantation shutters are made from wood or composite, they serve another barrier to thermal transfer. They help prevent heat loss, protect your rooms from unwanted drafts, and keep your valuables from fading fast. As far as energy efficiency is concerned, no other window treatment features better insulation and ultraviolet protection than plantation shutters.

They Are Customizable

Plantation shutters are customizable to the last detail. From color to louver size, configuration to operation, you can optimize custom shutters to meet your functional and aesthetic goals. To do this, though, you need to work with a reliable contractor to handle your project flawlessly.
