7 Reasons Why You Should Choose Plantation Shutters

If you are looking to enhance your home or improve a room, plantation shutters are the perfect place to start.

When upgrading a home some may like to invest in new furniture or paint the walls. While these options can really elevate the look of a room, window shutters give you the ability to change the mood anytime you please. Really, an investment in plantation shutters is the best option.

Not only do they help to create the desired temperature and lighting in any space, but they look chic and work with a variety of home décor styles.

Here are some of the benefits:

1. Easy airflow control

Firstly, plantation shutters allow control of airflow levels, where a window on its own will only have two options; open or closed. The panels can be adjusted to allow more or less air to flow through an open window.

In the middle of a summer day the heat can remain outside, while the cool evening air can breeze through the home at night.

2. Easy light control

With these window shutters, you can create the atmosphere that suits your mood by adjusting the level of natural light streaming through. Keep harsh light out for soft, slow mornings and embrace the golden light in the afternoon.

3. Privacy

For those who feel more comfortable knowing they aren’t visible from outside but still enjoy natural light and fresh air, plantation shutters are a great option. They will allow you to cover the bottom half of the windows, just enough to feel secure, while still allowing some light and air to fill the room from the top.

4. Perfect for any aesthetic

With a variety of styles and colours, plantation shutters can suit any interior – from Victorian or country to rustic or modern designs. They can be made to blend in or to make a statement, depending on the desired intention.

5. Durable

Although they have been thought not to be suitable for wet areas, this is not true. Plantation shutters, also available in PVC, make a great addition to any kitchen or bathroom and remain in good condition regardless of the moisture around it.

6. Increase property value

Plantation shutters help to add to any home with their timeless look and practical uses. They are a long-lasting addition which increases the home’s resale value.

7. Quality and peace of mind

Whether you choose timber shutters for your bedroom or PVC shutters for wet areas you will always have consistent first rate plantation shutters. With quality product, quality installation and a 5 year warranty, you’ll have peace of mind ordering from an Australian owned family business with over 29 years experience.

Whilst the choices involved in upgrading a house can be difficult, the benefits of installing plantation shutters make this decision an easy one.
