Versatility with Plantation Shutters

October 24, 2012

We often get asked by clients to recommend a versatile, durable and great looking window furnishing – the answer often leads us back to plantation shutters. They are a great way to increase the value of your home as well as provide easy and practical functionality. Based on traditional plantation houses from the 18th century, modern plantation shutters are a sensible choice that combines versatility and elegance.

Plantation interior shutters go well with both modern and vintage style interiors and are offered in various sizes and designs. Plantation shutter installation can also be fairly convenient and straightforward as they can be installed around arches and custom window designs for a customized appeal.

Other benefits to plantation shutters include:

  • Timeless design: While styles come and go these remain stylish throughout the seasons. They may need a coat of paint every couple of years.
  • Investment: Plantation shutters are different to conventional window treatments. Once installed, they become a part of your home instead of simply being a decorative piece. Shutters are usually built into the window frames itself.
  • Energy Efficiency: These window treatments protect homes from the elements. They can be opened to allow a cool breeze to come into the house and closed to ward off intense heat or heavy rain.
